The Lyrics

he walks into the room...with a sandwich in his hand
he looks disgusting naked...and folks say "who's that fat man ?"
he eats too much...i just can't understand
that's behavior, i just can't condone

all this food just fattens his rear
and obese is what he is...he's not just big-boned

he cleans up his plate...and asks "is this all there is ?"
and then he'll point to your food...and claim its his
when you say "its mine"...then he will say "im pissed"
and you say "oh my god, just leave my food alone"

all this food just fattens his rear
and obese is what he is...he's not just big-boned

he steals your meal tickets...like he did just last week
he eats up the food meant for you...and you're up the creek
you say "how does it feel...to be such a fat freak ?"
he is just impossible...can't believe how he's grown

all this food just fattens his rear
and obese is what he is...he's not just big-boned

he eats so many snacks...in the lunch that he packs
he eats so fast...i'm surprised he don't get indigestion
there ain't one crumb...he will neglect
and dessert he expects...you will always suspect
he'll have seconds with no hesitations

how he loves his lunch session...he ate all that he took
what a stomach he has...people turn and they look
he's been through all...of the latest cookbooks
he's very well-fed...that's well known

all this food just fattens his rear
and obese is what he is...he's not just big-boned

he's quite the swallower...none better than he
borrow or steal, he just helps himself...it just makes the mind reel
and don't think we don't notice...he eats too many meals
when he says "fill my plate up"...it just makes me groan

all this food just fattens his rear
and obese is what he is...he's not just big-boned

when hungry he will fidget...says he wants it now
and you say "wait a minute"...he says "but how ?"
and you say "i've often seen...how you eat like a cow"
then he will sulk...in impatient tones

all this food just fattens his rear
and obese is what he is...he's not just big-boned

when he's in the lunch room...all the kids start to frown
he stuffs food in his pocket...when no one looks 'round
there oughta be a law...about him chowin' down
its obvious...his diet's blown

all this food just fattens his rear
and obese is what he is...he's not just big-boned

Alvin, i wanted to do this song, so I hit search to see if it had been done before.OH MY GOD!!! Dude, this is ABSOLUTELY of of the TOP TEN parodies on this sight, without a doubt!!!!!!! I can't believe it only had four votes, but old Dylan is sometimes not well known. I would vote for this fifty times if I could, it had me rollin' on the floor!!LMAO!!! GREAT
