I want a tall skinny papa
Yeah!
I want a tall skinny papa
Yeah!
I want a tall skinny papa
Yeah!
I want a tall skinny papa
Yeah!

I want a tall skinny papa
That's all I'll ever need
She wants a tall, tall, tall skinny papa
Tall, tall, tall skinny papa
Tall, tall, tall skinny papa
I want a tall skinny papa

That's all I'll ever need
He's got to be all mine
Treat me fine
Walk the chalk line
And stay on my mind
He's got to be alright
Learn to fight all night
Mama will do the rest

And now how 'bout that, Miss?
He's got to do what he's told
And bring sweet mama that gold
Satisfy my soul
He's gotta be tall

Yeah!
Tall
Yeah!
He's gotta be tall
Yeah!
Tall
Yeah!
I want a tall skinny papa
That's all I'll ever need
