The Lyrics

Just for the record, I don't believe the hype myself :-)
It was forty years ago, today
Dr. Atkins threw his carbs away
He was knocking 'round for quite a while
But it's only now his book's in style
And now I direct you to
The diet you've ignored for years
Dr. Atkins' Low In Carbs Food Fad

It's Dr. Atkins' Low In Carbs Food Fad
There's bread upon your plate, oh no
It's Dr. Atkins' Low In Carbs Food Fad
Eat fat and watch the beer gut go

Dr. Atkins' Low In, Dr. Atkins' Low In
Dr. Atkins' Low In Carbs Food Fad

All the stars are on it
It's wonderful, you know
No spuds, no bread no pasta, but
We'll have some steak and onion, please
And lots and lots of cheese

Unless you want your gut to show
You should try the diet now, you know
In a week or two, you'll see it's great
'Cause by then you will be losing weight
Again, I direct you to
The diet every chip shop fears
It's Dr. Atkins' Low In Carbs Food Fad

This was great. It's especially funny if you listen to the combined Sgt. Pepper/With a Little Help From My Friends track. I can picture a combined parody from that one. 5-5-5 for a great laugh!

A sequel to this will soon be posted. Whether it is in the spirit of yours, you'll have to decide.

The 'diet every chip shop fears' line was expecially good!

Without bread or pasta I might die, so I commend your parody, Sir Adam!

Nice work. I'm holding out on this diet until they make low-carb carbs.

The last line could have been, "HOLD THOSE BEERS!" or something like that. Very good parody!.

(ABC) VERY nice work, Adam - I too have used the diet - great for easy weight loss - pity about the deadly cholestorol levels - and I LOVED the title

Loved the title and a smashing parody. So THAT'S why Pauline Hanson looks so fat...

(ABC-D) Atkins must have been high when he came up with his patented diet.
