about

I have to say this is a fun song to sing. Bruce was channeling his younger self, harkening back to a time when there was this pressing urge to find some risqué word or phrase to fit into the conversation, something that bordered on rude, but not quite. Once you had a phrase you could kind of get away with, you ran around screaming it as often as you could. This is Bruce’s grown up version of that youthful tendency with all its inherent innocence.

What I have found amazing is how many women passing through our house and studio think this song might be written about or for them – including me.

It’s not.

Its original spark came from a newspaper article Bruce read about women’s concern about the size of their back end. Somehow this was surprising to him and the idea stuck, passed through his preadolescent self and arriving fully formed in this blues shuffle. CJ

lyrics

My little girl she’s got a face so sweet,
It makes me wanna holler, it makes me wanna weep.
She’s got legs, man, they’re so fine,
They make me wanna walk the line.

Ooo my my she’s built like a tank,
She’s got money in the bank.
Talk about assets, well, man she’s got ‘em,
What tops it off is her great big bottom.

Her great big bottom,
She’s got a great big bottom,
She’s got a great big bottom,
And that’s all right with me.

She’s so high toned, it’s obscene,
Like some girl in a magazine.
When we go dancing, I feel like a king,
‘Cause everybody loves it when she shakes that thing.

When we go strolling accidents happen,
Some men whistle and some start clapping,
It’s enough to make you go into shock,
When my baby walks that walk – with he
