The Lyrics

My Todd parodies bomb here, but this was his biggest hit.
Jello, fat free
I've tried to diet for a long, long time
I always eat too much of food that's wrong
A loss of seven pounds won't last too long
But bowls of Jello I eat eight or nine

Seein' through
I see the little fruit in that jiggly goo
I find some different chunks to throw in there
A bit of lemon or a French éclair
It gives me something to look forward to

When the Jello I make
I throw in a flank steak
For I know I must eat much more healthily

Calories
You know I'd do without them if I could
But mashed potatoes always call my name
And in a Jello mold they taste the same
It's in my diet so I must eat good

It's a terrible fate
Just can't seem to lose weight
When this is all over I might get a date

Calories
You know I'd do without them if I could
But baked lasagna always calls my name
And in a Jello mold it tastes the same
It's in my diet so I must eat good
Fatty free
Fatty free
Fatty free


Look for something I did with Spaff.

Yes it is, that's what I thought I wrote.

Funny, but true! Y'know Todd originally recorded Hello, It's Me" in 1968 with his first band, The Nazz. I actually like that version better than the hit version. If you like The Who, you would really enjoy The Nazz, they were a top-rate hard rock band from Philly.

Absolutely surreal how the words fit and how your point is made. Well done!

No matter how small the symphony, there's always room for cello. 5's

More flavours of jello than Todd had colours in his hair! Your variety of foods made Todd palatable even to me. :-)

I KTOS well enough to appreciate this. I particularly like the "throw in a flank steak" line. And boy do I know Jello; we Utahns eat more of it than anyone. (Fact.)

Here, y'all is what Rick is referring to in his postscript:

That collaboration even got mentioned in a weekly called Los Angeles City Beat. Kudos, RAD.
