The Lyrics

Sometimes plates
Have things like veal
And people share the leg of lamb
Between themselves

Some get sick
'Cause they can't wait
And eat the lobster first
While it's still in the shell

But carbs never did give nothing to the Thin Man
That would show up, show up under his skin
And carbs ever are the villains in the shillin'
Of the diet, of Doc-tor Atkins

So please
Believe in me
When I say
I'm eatin' ground round, ground round
Smoke mesquite A1 Sauce!
Burger cookin' brown brown, brown, brown
Protein's great for weight loss!

Ooo, ooo-ooo,
Ooo-ooo, ooo-oooooooo...

(Oh) carbs never did give nothing to the Thin Man
That would show up, show up under his skin
And carbs ever are the villains in the shillin'
Of the diet, of Doc-tor Atkins

So please
Believe in me
When I say
I'm gettin' round, round, round, round
Stomach's got fat valleys!
Packin' on the pounds, pounds, pounds, pounds
Protein has calories!

Ooo, ooo-ooo,
Ooo-ooo, ooo-oooooooo...

(Oh) carbs never did give nothing to the Thin Man
That would show up, show up under his skin
And carbs ever are the villains in the shillin'
Of the diet, of Doc-tor Atkins

But that...Thin Man ain't me...Ooo, ooo-oooooooooo...

My hubby's been on that diet forever! I can identify. He eats lots of hambugers, with no bread. Try the sugar free Jello, Johnny.

Thank you, Diva! Sugar free Jello? Sounds like Caffeine-Free Diet Coke: "Why bother?" LOL! ;-D
