The Lyrics

Disclaimer --- It's not my fault if you gain 20 pounds just reading this! ( If you do, just LYAO! )
Jell-o is so out of sight,
There's always room for one more bite,
Since she left me, I've been out binging,
The folks around me are all quite cringing,
When my friend directed me,
To somewhere down the street,
All you can eat,
Now there's are pounds of pie tins....

In smorgasbords, I scarf the cones,
Lucky ice cream has no bones,
I'm getting larger than a Guernsey cow,
Even John Pinette says, "You go now!"
When my fork was stabbed,
Into the center of a cherry tart,
I had to fart,
Amidst the pounds of pie tins....

Under the heated lamps I saw,
Apple turnovers galore,
Their crusts were turning all brown & gold,
Perfect for melting of the a la mode,
Now it won't be long,
'Til I'm up to my knees,
In whizzing cheese,
That top the pounds of pie tins....

Cool Whip soothes my very soul,
I sit & eat it from the bowl,
Like a whale that is about to beach,
I grab the cobbler, & I hope it's peach,
But my curds,
Like cottage cheese, just fell,
Into the gel,
Abrosia pounds of pie tins....

And all that night, I stayed & stayed,
Gallons of pink lemonade,
In the morning, I was snoring,
While quarts of pudding, they were still pouring,
Into the crusts of the custard cups, littered all around my head,
'Til I was dead,
Among the pounds of pie tins.... I do these parodies at karaoke night. What's for dessert???

That is such a clever use of words and so unlike mine, which were akways sad. The only thing sad about this is the # of pounds he puts on. :D My favorite part of you parody is "When my fork was stabbed, Into the center of a cherry tart, I had to fart,..." clever echo of the OS 5's

Great use of original melody, I can picture you bloating away. Maybe you could recycle the aluminum to pay for the funeral. Reminds me of my parody "Pauncho & Leftovers".

Good lines: Smorgasbord/cones, ice cream/bones, and some others.

Third verse went astray:
Ten thousand people, maybe more
Apple turnovers galore, (too short(

People hearing without listening
Perfect for melting of the a la mode (too long)

..and some other lines not paced to OS as well. Every dog gets one free bite, so abstaining from voting, as this is the first of your works I've seen, and you're new here. Try this to help nail down those syllable counts and stresses:

Pleased to meet you, and welcome to AIR!
