    Lyrics

    Closest to the bone
    Sweeter is the meat
    Last slice of Virginia ham
    Is the best that you can eat
    Don't talk about my baby
    She's slender but she's sweet
    Closest to the bone
    And sweeter is the meat

    Now she'd make a good thermometer
    If she drank a glass of wine
    She's built just like a garter snake
    She climbs up like a vine
    My friends tell me I'm a fool
    To love a girl like that
    Here's the reason I like 'em slim
    Instead of big and fat

    Cause, closest to the bone
    Sweeter is the meat
    Last slice of Virginia ham
    Is the best that you can eat
    Now don't talk about my baby
    She's slender but she's sweet
    Umm, closest to the bone
    And sweeter is the meat

    Let's go
    Yeah, let's go
    Yeah, boy
    Attaboy
    One more, one more
    One more, one more
    Yeah, boy
    In the moonlight
    Yeah, closest to the bone, yeah
    Ah, look out now

    Now she'd make a first class fountain pen
    If she only knew how to write
    Her figure's like a piece of string
    Um, she rolls up every night
    Everybody thinks that I'm a nut
    To love this lovely worm
    Boy there's one reason I like 'em slim
    Instead of round and firm

    Cause, Closest to the bone
    Sweeter is the meat
    Last slice of Virginia ham
    Is the best that you can eat
    Now don'cha talk about my baby
    She's slender but she's sweet, um
    Closest to the bone
    Um, swee, I got another one now, listen here

    Um, she'd make a fine piccolo
    If she only stayed on key
    Boy she's shaped like a rubber band
    And she loves to snap at me
    Everybody thinks I'm insane
    To overlook her faults
    But here's the reason I like 'em skinny
    Instead of full of schmaltz

    Cause, closest to the bone
    Sweeter is the meat
    Last slice of Virginia ham
    Is the best that you can eat
    Don't talk about my baby
    She's slender but she's sweet
    And it's closest to the bone
    And sweeter is the meat
