The Lyrics

Originally written for my karaoke night ....
Danny: I've got fat, it's multiplying
And it's losing control
Coz the food that you're supplying
Is so fattening!
Sandy: You'd better shape up
Cause I need a man
Who is slim, quite unlike you
You'd better shape up
Or you'll get a heart attack
To your heart you must be true
D: Tried diets, nothing left for me to do

Chorus: You have got to lose weight (you've gotta lose weight) Ooh ooh ooh, honey
You've got to lose weight (you've gotta lose weight) Ooh, ooh, ooh honey
You've got to lose weight (you've gotta lose weight) ooh ooh ooh
Try exercise - stop eating pies

S: If you're filled with lots of lard, you're too lazy to lose weight
Take a tip from myself - buy some skates
D: I'd better shape up, coz you need a man
S: I need a man, who can keep me satisfied
D: I better shape up, if I want to lose
S: You'd better lose, all that extra twenty stone
D: Are you sure?
S: Of course I'm sure you stupid tw*t

I thought this was pretty good. I had trouble with the pacing in a couple places (Tried diets, nothing left for me to do...just sounded strange at the beginning), but I thought that was minor, and when I sang it to myself, I could "force" it in there (if you sang it karaoke, you already did that). So, I liked it. Ship it! =)
