The Lyrics

Number 6 on my album with Fast Food-themed parodies off Billy Joel's first 11 Greatist Hits. Only 5 to go!
Well we all like fast food
But we know that it's bad for us
But we eat it and feel guilt
When the food is all gone
But one Burger does stand out
It doesn't matter how it built
Of course it's name is the Whopper
And I'll eat it night til' dawn

Well I can't stop eating
Can't get it out of my chompers
Though there are many other ones
This burger is the most swell!
Well, first you get your fries
Then order a couple Whoppers
Well that's always the order for me
So they're easy to sell!

Don't be afraid that you'll get fat
Satisfy your mouth
With that Ketchup splat
Always put the cheese to the South
Then it'll taste good
Like a burger should!

Once I used to believe
That Arby's had better burgers
Then once I went to Burger King
And right then I realized
It was so good I could sing
And though it will ruin my thighs
I love Burger King for Whoppers
And plus I like their French fries

Well I can't stop eating
Can't get it out of my chompers
Though there are many other ones
This burger is the most swell!
Well, first you get your fries
Then order a couple Whoppers
Well that's always the order for me
So they're easy to sell!

Don't be afraid that you'll get fat
Satisfy your mouth
With that Ketchup splat
Always put the cheese to the South
Then it'll taste good
Like a burger should!

I may never understand
How the whopper was inspired
But I will always eat it
Even if it clogs my veins
Well, just don't mind the bathroom trips
And ignore your heartburn fire
Just give in to the desire
When the whopper takes your brain

OK, but Arby's does have better burgers.

Not bad, but too many stresses in wrong places weakens it, like "fast food" and "bad for us" in the first part.
