The Lyrics

Don't know the original song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
Sad to say I'm no longer a laddie, now
Cholesterol seems to be going bad, now
I'm growing flab on top of my fat, now
So my physician called me in for a chat, now

My doctor told me
I better walk around
I better walk around

Used to be I was skinny and fit, now
But my hunger's a bottomless pit, now
The smorgasboard is the center of my life, now
And so my derriere is pretty wide, now

My doctor told me
I better walk around
I better walk around

Need to get some exercising in
Finding the time for a forty-yard run
But then I think of a chocolate muffin
Think I'll head to Market Street and get me a dozen

Before I re-commit to losing weight, now
I'll load up my dinner plate, now

My doctor told me
I better walk around
I better walk around

Gonna need some bigger trousers now
Gotta have room for my supersize buns
My current life is so sedentary
Got a pair of man boobs that are now legendary

Before I go and buy a yoga mat, now
Think I'll have a Jumbo Jack, now
Then pick up some cheese and mac, now
And Coca-Cola in the sixteen pack, now

My doctor told me
I better walk around
I better walk around

I better lose some pounds
Oh yeah, I'm looking pretty round
I am so big I can't fall down
Oh yeah, I better, I better
I better walk, walk around
I'm big as Puget Sound
But I just lie around
I better walk, walk, walk, walk, walk around

Looks like we've got ourselves another 111s carpet bomber today. So far as I can tell, it's not ideological or political or anything, probably just some troll amusing himself; so don't take it too personally.

I get the same advice. Where I live I could improve my heart, and get eaten by a stray dog.
