The Lyrics

* 1 stone = 14 pounds; kine: cows; spavined: having a bony enlargement of the tarsal joint, associated with strain; Brobdingnagian: very large
They're not light,
You really have to fight.
They weigh 20 stone,* 3.
I don't like to be lifting you,
Lifting you.

They do weigh, these bodies sway.
As you heft them; you wish you had a sling.
How much food did they bring?
Got a big gut too, big gut.

You don't know what it's like, laden,
You don't know what it's like.
To lug somebody,
To lug somebody
Who weighs more than you.

I'm in pain.
I have to face again
A frame that, to be kind,
Holds much more meat than some kine*
Could make me the spavined* kind.
This woman,
She's Brobdingnagian.*
Can't breathe when I lift you.
That is what food will do.
Herniate gut, ooh!
Gut ooh!

You don't know what it's like, laden,
You don't know what it's like.
To lug somebody,
To lug somebody
Who weighs more than you.

Good job of working in "Brobdingnagian." Jonathan Swift would be proud.
