The Lyrics

Bob Gomez has a great parody of this song with the same title, but this is a completely opposite viewpoint.....
Please stop eating, and don't you squeeze me
Still hurting from the time before
Butt's 'a draggin', and even sideways
You still won't fit through our front door

Your dress size:SUMO, your ass has doubled
You're bigger than some compact cars
You eat from lunchtime, straight through 'till bedtime
You look just like the whale you are

Food I'm buyin', it ain't lastin'
I've checked the cupboards and the fridge
And I'm not sayin'...you should be fastin'
Although you might cut down a smidge

We now need sidewalk restoration
It wasn't meant to bear such lard
They just can't make one...that you can walk on
At least not at the weight you are

I did not know that you were once size three
A famous gymnast 'till you grew
When we make love and I roll over twice
I can't believe I'm still on you

I said I'd feed you...but not forever
I would go bankrupt a la carte
I just might feed you...to old Lecter*
He'd love you just the weight you are
*Lecter is of course Hannibal Lecter from Silence of the Lambs

Way to POUND this one in there, Dee. There's something about BJ that lends him to food/overeating parodies: "Hungry Young Man," "I Burst At the Seams," "Only the Egg Foo Young," "Scenes From a Chinese Restaurant," "She's Gotta Weigh" and "You May Be Light (I May Be Heavy)." And those are just mine!

Totally hilarious! - So many LMAO lines in this one, Dee - the best is the brilliant "When we make love and I roll over twice I can't believe I'm still on you" - but close on its heels are lines 2, 6, 12, 13, 14, and 22 (space prevents full documentation) - 555

Thanks Royce, alvin, John Barry, Rick c., AFW, MP, and Stu. I just listened to a midi of this, trying to learn it on the guitar, and I may have put the bridge in the wrong place. I think the next to last verse above should be higher up in the song. I may have to delete this and re-post it later.

As I stretch out over something to reach the keyboard and type ... 555.
