The Lyrics

Such a feeling's coming up on me.
I ate Wonder and I've got to set it free.
My fever is too high;
They look like sticks, my thighs.
I've reached the ne plus ultra of lean.

I am susceptible to TB
My disorder has plunged my immunity.
Even broth that is clear
Gives me bulimic fear.
You would think that I were only 17.

CHORUS 1:
She is gonna drop, this girl—must indulge in gustation
Seeks evacuation the rare times she dines.
Now I hear that gurgling sound—won't you please have some ground round?!
I recommend that you stop the hurl.

CHORUS 2:
She is gonna drop, this girl, without alimentation.
She has got regurgitation on her mind.
So her nourishment has wound—mostly up and rarely down.
So eat or you are gonna drop, girl!

People expel wind when they declaim.
The sensation when I hurl is much the same.
There's no fragments of peas, just an anorexic breeze—
A pleasing sense of vacuousness in me.

I have never got fish on my mind.
"Give us this day our daily bread?!" I've declined.
I'm as hollow as can be; Olsen's got nothing on me.
Soon will be time to pop the cap on a bier.

[Repeat choruses]

Well, I'm first with a comment, but I didn't give it those 1s - in fact 5s from me because some of the matching to the original was perfect - I can hear but can't imagine Karen siging this one

Awkward pacing in some spots, but the lyrics were thought-provoking and played on the original fairly well. 4-5-5.
