Built For Comfort

Album: The Chess Box (1964)
  • Some folk built like this, some folk built like that
    But the way I'm built, a-don't you call me fat
    Because I'm built for comfort, I ain't built for speed
    But I got everything all the good girls need

    Some folk rip and roar, some folk b'lieve in signs
    But if you want me, baby, you got to take your time
    Because I'm built for comfort, I ain't built for speed
    But I got everything all the good girls need

    I ain't got no diamonds, I ain't got no gold
    But I do got love to satisfy your soul
    Because I'm built for comfort, I ain't built for speed
    But I got everything, all you good women needWriter/s: WILLIE DIXON
