'Hey all of you women don't come around, unless you weigh around four hundred pounds.'
Doctor Feelgood lays his unique tastes on the table in the first line of this track. He's from down south and apparently they like 'em big and tall down there. Hunch tells me he's generalizing but I can't speak with authority on it.
At least he's honest is what we'll say. Not poetic, but wearing his simple heart on his sleeve.
The weight-particular lyricism fits within a pretty standard 12 bar, dancehall structure that fails to excite or hang around in the memory box.
