The Lyrics

mounds of rolls on major tum
mounds of rolls on major tum
take your diet pills and turn that treadmill on

mounds of rolls on major tum
ten years of putting inches on
check your eating and with good luck, you'll get through

there are mounds of rolls on major tum
you've really got to fade
cause the people, where you go, just stop and stare
now its time to lose the tonnage that you wear

you've a major tum with mounds of rolls
you can't fit through the door
and you're walking in a most peculiar way
and you're looking very corpulent...today

your rear...ain't so pretty...its a big can
far above the norm
though your girth is huge
there is something you can do

though you're past four hundred pounds, you smile
there's time left for you still
and i think your wide hips know that they should go
exercise....you'll love when you can touch...your toes

mounds of rolls on major tum
you'll wind up dead...before too long
can you lose that major tum ?
can you lose that major tum ?
can you lose that major tum ?

and your rear...ain't so pretty...its a big can
far above the norm
though your girth is huge
there is something you can do

A weighty subject here...but you handled the extra tonnage like they were empty plastic bags. Kind of advances the theme I used with my Greasy Heart parody a few days back...5's ~ ~ ~

"Mounds of rolls"... perhaps caused by rolls of Mounds? If you were paid by the laugh, you'd be making even more than if you were paid by the pound!
