I wrote the biggest part of this 30 years ago about a girl in the pub I frequented; I would have asked her out but I heard some guys making unkind remarks about her weight and I just didn't have the bottle after that. Shame on me, for she was lovely

About the song

album coverI wrote the biggest part of this 30 years ago, about a girl in the pub I frequented; I would have asked her out but I heard some guys making unkind remarks about her weight and I just didn't have the bottle after that... shame on me, for she was lovely. It's a commentary on how our choices can be made for us if we are not strong-minded enough, rather than a criticism of an over-weight girl. I did a demo of it 25 years ago and re-discovered it the other day - I've re-recorded it and added the intro and a verse but that's all. Besides 4 guitar tracks, 6 backing vocals and a lead vocal, the rest is sequenced: two Chameleon drum loops, bass guitar, Fender Rhodes.
Lyrics
Intro
I love her laugh, I love her smile
Infectious for a mile around her...
My problem is as wide as it is tall
In every way she makes my light-weight life seem oh so small
If I could have her I could have it all


Verse 1
She's a big girl
Don't let her hear you say that
Cos you know that she's got feelings too
And she's much bigger than you

Verse 2
She's a big girl
Won't take no for an answer
If she wants to dance with you
Then that's what you're gonna do

Tag
She's got such a pretty face
But the rest of her just takes up too much space

Verse3
She's a big girl
Make no big bones about it
I wouldn't use the F . A . T. word
Well not so she heard...

Verse 4
If she lost a few pounds
And had not so much to go round
Ironically there'd be none left for me
They'd all see and want her beauty

Tag
Her smile could melt the snow to rain
I bet the rest of her could stop a speeding train

Middle 8
And though she's never on her own
Something about her says she's lonely
I'd like to take her home with me tonight...

Verse 5
But she's a big girl
And everyone would see us
I don't think I could live it down
No not in this town

Tag
She's got such a pretty face
But the rest of her just takes up too much space

She's a big girl
Whoah, such a big girl
Oh, such a big girl
A big girl
