The Lyrics

Hips widen away, hips widen away
From cafeterial visitation
The more your hips widen away

Oh, and I knew a man, he really could chow down
You know his passion for consumin' added forty pounds
He said, "Five courses, please bring them here."
"I'd like some stew, made for devouring."
"I think that I could eat a steer."

Hips widen away, hips widen away
From culinary fascination
The more your hips widen away

I know a woman, food was her life
Man, it's so scary how she uses fork and butter knife
She said, "A good meal leaves me in pain."
She said, "A bad meal leaves me underfed,
I have to go back up again."

Hips widen away, hips widen away
From cafeterial visitation
The more your hips widen away

And I know a father who had a son.
He sat and told him over-eating's why he weighed a ton
He loved his buffets, that much is plain
And all the joy he got from feeding
Made him wide and round, and very full again

Hips widen away, hips widen away
From culinary fascination
The more your hips widen away

Oh, and God only knows, God made this plan
The indigestion is available to every man
We're workin' our jaws, eat up all our pay
The food keeps sliding down the pie-way
Getting fat, our hips widen away

Hips widen away, hips widen away
From cafeterial visitation
The more your hips widen away

"From cafeterial visitation" and "From culinary fascination" and the parody's title itself are all examples of the genius of this parody.

Yum, yum. A five-course meal. Love food/overeating parodies. Of course, you gotta take care of your teeth with all that eating, or you'll end up with my version of this song, "Tooth Bitin' Decay."

ABC--LOL, Rick! I just remembered that I have a shelved parody of the original that I was never able to finish...I should've done it, though, so that we could have entered two parodies to the same OS in the same contest...; ) 5s...this is FABulous!

Rats, don't know this one but I can kinda hear Paul singing this parody so your pacing's gotta be pretty good regardless. Funny stuff, Rick.
