The Lyrics

Who now owns every shelf in the grocery
Even though he's been dead for a year
Who's warning you of bread from his crypt now
Everyone knows it's Atkins.

Who's telling you that bacon's a health food
Eat lots of steak he says from beyond
Who stirred more eggs than John Holmes at 20
Everyone knows it's Atkins.

And Robert, he ate no fries
No cookies, no cakes or pies
And still he managed to die
He's above the clouds, so fat and proud.

Who was stubborn about good nutrition
Even as his blood slowed to a crawl
He'd listen, but he's in no condition
Everyone knows it's Atkins.

This is great... your parody not the atkins diet. I bet Dr. Atkins would not have been happy to hear what i ate yesterday because i was at a track meet all day and had no chance to eat any real meals... 6 pop tarts, 3 granola bars, and about 900 calories worth of pretzels.

This was well done, but even better because it makes fun of the Atkins diet!

Great a lo-carb commercial that I saw.'What did you have to eat?'
"Beef...with a side of beef, and you?"
"I licked the butter off the piece of toast"
