The Lyrics

Be sure to check out my other works as well!
(yeah, yeah) Oh, my weight, it has inflated
(nyah, nyah) Been sloppy, not clean
(nyah, nyah) Time to get my carcass seated
(yeah, yeah) On that rowing machine

Gotta work out
And get the lead out
Oh, I'm feelin' better now
My back, I threw out
A lot, I sweat out
Oh, but I feel better now

I'll look hunky by Christmas
For lassies to see
Then, I'll see if all the hot babes
Stand in line to date me

[repeat first chorus]

Turtle cheesecake'n'
Cheese curls and bacon
I've stopped intakin' for now
The world's done makin'
Fun of my shape'n'
It's true - no fakin' you out

Gotta work out
And get the lead out
Oh, I'm feelin' better now
I look so cool now
I might get asked out
Oh, I'm feelin' better now

[repeat to fade - nachos, anybody?]

Very good! 5s :) I'm on a weight loss journey myself. Time to drop 50 lbs and get into shape. You picked a perfect song to parody too. It's a very "get up and go!" type of song :)
