  • Three nights ago I was at a disco
    Man, I wanted to bump, I was rarin' to go
    And this big fat woman, bumped me on the floor
    She was rarin' to go, that chick was rarin' to go

    Man she did a dip, almost broke my hip
    She was gettin' down, that chick was gettin' down
    She wanted to bump some more, but I told her, no

    You done knocked me down once
    You done knocked me down once
    Said, if you want to dance

    Find you a big fat man
    Ya'll both can get on down
    Ya'll both can get on down, huh

    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman
    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman
    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman
    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman
    Lord, I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman
    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman
    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman
    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman

    Somebody take her
    She's too big for me
    She'll knock me down

    She came over to me, snatched me out of my seat
    She wanted to get on down, still wanted to get on down
    I told her to go on and leave me alone
    I ain't gettin' down
    You done hurt my hip once

    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman
    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman
    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman
    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman

    Lord, I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman
    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman
    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman
    I ain't gonna bump no more with no big fat woman

    Somebody take her, I don't want her
    She done hurt my hip, she done knocked me down
    Done hurt my hip, she done knocked me down
    Somebody take her, I don't want her
    Say, Leroy, you can have this one, dude
    This big fat woman, dude
    I don't want her Writer/s: BENNIE MCGINTY, BENNIE LEE MCGINTY, BUDDY KILLEN
