  • Here is the story of Fat Nelly
    Whoa, was she fat!

    Fat Nelly was killed with a butcher's knife
    Nobody laughed, nobody cried
    And her blood ran red all over my life
    Nobody laughed, nobody cried

    A street screamed rape by a garden gate
    Nobody laughed, nobody cried
    But the hinges were oiled, the police came late
    Nobody laughed, nobody cried

    Fat Nelly was killed with a butcher's knife
    Nobody laughed, nobody cried
    And her blood ran red all over my life
    Nobody laughed, nobody cried

    A street screamed rape by a garden gate
    Nobody laughed, nobody cried
    But the hinges were oiled, the police came late
    Nobody laughed, nobody cried
    Nobody laughed, nobody cried
    Nobody laughed, nobody cried
    (I cried)
