The Lyrics

This song is dedicated to my favorite dessert, anything with chocolate and no nuts. (I'm not allergic; I just hate nuts.) As for the pacing, there's a lot of note jumps in the original, so I wrote it as if I were singing it aloud... meaning it might not be perfect. But I tried. So hopefully you enjoy it!
No, I can't take one more taste of you
'Cause all that's waiting is weight gain
Don't you know that every time I eat you
I add two inches to my waist
Cholesterol's off the charts
And causing damage to my heart

Who do you think you are
Culinary shining star
Accumulating calories
And making people fat
You're gonna feel guilty
When you learn that your fans
Have sacrificed dinner
To indulge in you

I hear you're getting rave reviews
From dessert critics everywhere
But I have grown too strong
To be led into temptation
My arteries feel less clogged
Since you've been cut from my diet

Who do you think you are
Culinary shining star
Accumulating calories
And making people fat
You're gonna feel guilty
When you learn that your fans
Have sacrificed dinner
To indulge in you

It took so long
To afford a gym membership
And a personal train-
Er easy on the eyes
Because of him I lost almost twenty pounds
And then I started dating him
But now you're back
To make me fat again

Who do you think you are
Culinary shining star
Accumulating calories
And making people fat
You're gonna feel guilty
When you learn that your fans
Have sacrificed dinner
To indulge in you

Who do you think you are
Who do you think you are
Who you do think... you are
I love Christina Perri's music... probably just as much as I love parodying it.
