The Lyrics

Just the Weight You Are

Don't go crazy
Tryin' to feed me
Just eating more won't fill the void, m-m-m
And bulimia
Are two diseases I avoid

You're always saying
You feel bloated
After you've lunched on Power Bars, m-m-m
I'll take the fat times
I'll take the lean times
I'll take you just the weight you are

Don't go for Botox
Or Yogilates
I hate to see you work so hard, m-m-m
Find a balance,
Intake and output
Of protein, calories and carbs

Don't go spendin'
All your paychecks
On liposuction or fat farms, m-m-m
I prefer heavy
I want you just the weight you are

Just throw that bathroom scale into
The sea
And our love will be renewed
Ah, what will it take for you to believe
In me
The way that you believe in food

I said I love you,
Fat or slender
My obsessive superstar, m-m-m
What's this concoction in the blender?
I love you just the weight you are........
ęBob Gomez 2003

Yet another Billy Joel parody - and very well done. Cute clincher at the end, too! Love it.
