The Lyrics

You drank a Miller light,
You know you could have had a V8.
You best be eatin' right,
Or we'll be settlin' up your estate.
The way you put away red meat,
It's gonna put you in your tomb.
You better watch the way you eat,
You're gonna blow up like a baloon.

Well, you just eat anything that you're wantin' to,
You're go'n' to hell, the way you eat the things you do.

Eatin' jelly out the jar,
With peanut butter you devour,
And a half-a loaf of bread,
The kind that's made from whitened flour.
It's gonna stop your heart,
Unless you change the way you cook.
Fill up the shopping cart,
You gotta pull it with a tow hook.

Well, you just eat anything that you're wantin' to,
You're go'n' to hell, the way you eat the things you do.

What you call a sandwich,
Would be a Dagwood with boloney.
When your tooth gets sweet,
You eat a quart or two spumoni.

Well, you just eat anything that you're wantin' to,
You're go'n' to hell, the way you eat the things you do.

Real soon you will not see your feet,
Because the way you eat.
You better eat more light,
Be careful what you bite.

By the way, regarding our discussion yesterday regarding Mr. Moses. Look at his entry today and don't say I didn't warn you.

Guy, you made it fun to read. I don't understand the '2' either.
Guy - February 19, 2004 - Report this comment
No biggie. I get twos and ones a lot. The rest of my loyal fellow writers always bail me out with higher votes. And this is not one of my best parodies. Glad you and Pat and Rick all like it, thanks. I don't sweat the small stuff.

Rick - Concerning Mr. Moses. Yes you were right. I made my last comment to that boy today. It is his choice to reject the second chance we gave him. I will give him what he wants. As I said in my comment after yours yesterday, that I would follow your lead. Well, I'm right behind you. He won't get a chance to burn me again. It's a shame too since he seems to have so much potential. That was what I had in mind when I appealed to him yesterday. All the potential in the world and seventy-nine cents won't get him coffee at my lunch counter now. Yes you tried to tell me...

I'd love to send this to a LARGE co-worker who can't see his feet. Wonder if he'd get it.
