The Lyrics

Tights I'm quite fat in
They'll be breached if I bend
Donuts I've eaten
Never leave my rear end

Booty I'd always missed
With these eyes before
Just what the truth is -
Nothing fits anymore

'Cause I love food
Yes, I love food
Ohhhh how I love food

Gazing at people
Some, franks in-hand
Just what I'm thinking is -
Where's that weiner stand?

Some try to tell me
Start a diet, you fool
But when I smell pastry
I reflexively drool

And I love food
Yes, I love food
Ohhhh how I love food
Ohhhh how I love food

(instrumental)

Tights I'm quite fat in
See my buttocks distend
Chairs that I sat in
Carpenters must now mend

Beautiful pizza's bliss
With cheese fries before
Just what my weight is -
I can't say anymore

'Cause I love food
Yes, I love food
Ohhhh how I love food
Ohhhh how I love food

(instrumental)

'Cause I love food
Yes, I love food
Ohhhh how I love food
Ohhhh how I love food

(instrumental transition)

Breathe deep, before you consume,
Gnosh bites made from savory 'shrooms.
Fed little people sit back so content,
Another day's precious lunch money spent.

Impassioned diners masticate buns,
Hungry man cries for spuds and has none.
Rude waiter picks up and knuckles someone,
Senior citizens wish they had plums.

Cold sushi dish sat out all night,
Now moves and squirms with parasites,
Yet looks so...fresh, clean and white!
Skip this slimy fish tonight -
Its looks are an illusion.

Great one JD. Don't let MP get to you when he comments that you don't have any of the spoken part to this song parodied. It is still worth 5s.

Very amusing - I liked the carpenter line best.

I'm with John. LOL . 5's But don't knock sushi. Yuuummmm!

Thanks! Guy - I included a parody of the spoken part (the part that begins with "Breathe deep...") ...is that what you were referring to?

He got it all, Guy. And brilliantly! 5's

JD - Oops my bad, for some reason I thought that part was at the beginning of the song for some reason. I read it through but it never dawned on me after I voted and got ready to comment that it was actually there. Boy, I'll tell ya, memory, it's the second thing to go...

Very clever (as usual)! It brings to mind a recent Yes concert, where Chris Squire wore spandex...
Michael Pacholek - November 02, 2003 - Report this comment
You got the spoken part right. Even if, here in New Jersey, it is NOT recommended that you breathe deep... the gathering gloom or anything else!
Phil Alexander - November 03, 2003 - Report this comment
Funny... very funny :-) I think you hit the nail on the head why I never wear tights... This is one song I've parodied that's never made it to amiright, as it's another live roleplay song with a few too many in-jokes (it's called Knights in Fake Chainmail) - but I always appreciate someone else's take on a song I've covered.

5-5-5 Funny stuff guy!! I especially liked the spoken word part. And I laughed out loud at the waiter part. But my real question is: what person gave you 1s?
Rick D - December 25, 2003 - Report this comment
Happens to us all. You can hear an excerpt from this by clicking the link at the top of recordings (Rad and Mad)
Johnny D - December 25, 2003 - Report this comment
Thank you, Jude! And as Rick said, that's just an occasional fact of life here on Amiright - no big deal, happens to us all.

Johnny D - Better late than never, I SOMETIMES say. Finally got over here to vote on this one. This parody is way too tight to fit anything but a "5" into. Heard this one on Rick & Mari's "Amiright" Tribute and laughed my steel buns off. After they fell off the fat started to jiggle. Guy (this regards an old comment of yours on this number): I might be mistaken (happens once in a while at my advanced age), but I think that sometimes they play a shortened version of this song on the radio and in that truncated tune it starts with the spoken part. Anybody out there who can confirm that, 'cause I'm not positive? Inquiring minds want to know so they can fill the "Trivia" section of their brains.

As noted almost a year ago, this is an excellent parody. I was curious which "T" parody you would enter because I consider "Tall Scary Heels and Leather" as possibly the best title of all amiright parodies and "23" as possibly the most uniquely creative parody on amiright.

Totally goofy--not a backhanded compliment here, but the way you kept the OS' lines and twisted them into your nasty little hands was sheer genius. :) Eat on! 555

(T) I'm going to give this one YOUR highest compliment, JD - ie. I wish I'd thought of it first - and I'm tipping that once you decided on the idea, your second decision was to shoehorn the word "masticate" in there somewhere - LOL - 555
