The Lyrics

Delta Burke,
Gained some weight
And couldn't work
On "Designing Women"
Many years ago
So they wrote off Suzanne
By sayin' that she moved to Japan
Sure caused a controversy, don'cha know?

Now forty nine and the road isn't quite so hilly
She's been on Broadway, "Thoroughly Modern Millie"
Also she's got "Steel Magnolia's" in her hand
Late revenge on the people who had her canned.

In her younger days
Real hot was Delta Burke
Beautiful Body,
Could make men go berserk
But to her, the calories they didn't count
Soon all those added pounds began to mount

Delta Burke,
Gained that weight
And couldn't work
On "Designing Women"
Several years ago
They just wrote off Suzanne
By sayin' that she moved to Japan
It sparked some controversy, don'cha know?

yeah, sometimes it's just not enough to be knocked-out gorgeous, you gotta be skinny too

Delta proved once again that a woman does NOT have to be skinny to be knocked-out gorgeous. Marilyn Monroe was a size 14 in her prime.

She is wide-mouthed, and that doesn't just refer to her eating. But a great parody.
