The Lyrics

I grew up in the 1970's and 80's, so Elvis Presley was a bit before my time. I still hear his songs sometimes, but my only memories of seeing him perform was on the telly back in the 70's - when, of course, he was way past his prime.
I'm caught in a trap,
I'm getting too fat
Because I can't resist temptation.

Why can't I see
What it's doing to me
When I can't say not to a slice of apple pie

The doctor says I'm doomed,
Gotta lose weight or die
And my cholesterol
Is heading sky-high.

But I just can't help myself;
Chocolate cake on the shelf
Fills me with a longing I just can't deny.

Here I go again,
I'm on a full-scale binge
And I can see revulsion in your eyes
But I just don't care now

The doctor says I'm doomed,
Gotta lose weight or die
And my cholesterol
Is heading sky-high.

Why can't I find someone
To take me as I am,
You keep on tryin' to change me
But now I think its' time
To just say good bye,
So you go your way honey, I'll go mine, yeah.

I'm caught in a trap, I'm getting too fat,
Because I can't resist temptation,
Na-na-na-na, na-nana-na, na-na-na-na, yeah.
