I knew a man whose hair was red 

He was pale and thin as the dead.

He ate like a Clydesdale horse

But he couldn't gain weight, of course,

While Run'n from girls that wanted to wed.


He never could gain any weight,

Like a pole, he was pretty damn straight;

He was thin as a rail

Like a carpenter's nail

But those girls were after a mate.


He took a job on a neighbor’s farm

And the change of cooks was the charm.

He started putting on weight

Right out of the gate

Extra portions didn't do him no harm.


First she fed him fried chicken

Even better than finger Lick'n

It was cast-iron fried

She'd soon be his bride

By the scraps and grease from bacon.


He proposed over potatoes and gravy,

Buttery, fluffy, and oh so savory.

Well she accepted right away

But he was gone the next day

He came to his senses and joined the navy.
