Larry Williams (born Lawrence Eugene Williams, 1938 – 1990) was an American R&B and rock and roll singer, songwriter and pianist from New Orleans, Louisiana. He is best known for his hits “Short Fat Fannie” and “Bony Moronie”.

Williams was born in New Orleans on May 10, 1938. His father, Joseph Williams, was a saxophonist and bandleader, and his mother, Carrie Bell Williams, was a singer. Williams began playing piano at an early age, and by his teenage years, he was leading his own band.

Williams was signed to Specialty Records in 1956, and his first single, “Bad Boy”, was a hit. He followed it with a string of successful singles, including “Dizzy, Miss Lizzy” and “Slow Down”. In 1958, Williams recorded “Bony Moronie”, which became one of his biggest hits.

Williams continued to record and perform through the 1960s and 1970s, although he never again achieved the level of success he had in the 1950s. He relocated to the Netherlands in the 1980s, and died there in 1990.
