There's Dizzy Miss Lizzie, Marie Marie, Short Fat Fanny and Laudy Miss Claudy (the one who took all his money & probably inspired the song, Heebie Jeebies). Then there was Bonie Maronie who he liked so much she pops up from time to time in other songs (Hoochie Coo and Ting-a-Ling).

They Say All Music Guide

Bad Boy compiles 23 tracks Larry Williams recorded between 1957 and 1958. The core of the collection are his hit singles — “Bony Maronie,” “She Said Yeah,” “Lawdy Miss Clawdy,” “Just Because,” “Dizzy Miss Lizzy,” “Short Fat Fannie,” “Bad Boy,” “Slow Down” — many of which became standards. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
