The Lyrics

you tell me that pork can wreck my heart
well well well...i say "what the hell"
i'm throwin' it in my shoppin' cart
well well well...buy all that they sell
maybe i'll eat some each night
and for breakfast and for lunch, besides
maybe this diet is unwise
maybe this diet is unwise
maybe this diet is unwise
maybe this diet is unwise
maybe this diet is unwise
maybe this diet is unwise
especially with french fries

yummy bacon's a scrumptious treat
usually i eat a pound
don't tell me it ain't good for my heart
i'm still gonna choke it down

let's heat up some cheese and make fondue
well well well...can't resist the smell
veins so clogged, that my face turns blue
well well well...see my body swell
its time to get my dish out
don't worry if my diet's smart
maybe i'll have a stroke at last
maybe i'll have a stroke at last
maybe i'll have a stroke at last
maybe i'll have a stroke at last
maybe i'll have a stroke at last
maybe i'll have a stroke at last
cause i've got a running start

yummy bacon's a scrumptious treat
usually i eat a pound
don't tell me it ain't good for my heart
i'm still gonna choke it down

doctor says i must stop today
well well well...said i looked like hell
i humored the dude and i said "OK"
well well well...lies are what i tell
i admired his starkness
he preached what foods were not allowed
he told me that pork could wreck my heart
he told me that pork could wreck my heart
he told me that pork could wreck my heart
he told me that pork could wreck my heart
he told me that pork could wreck my heart
he told me that pork could wreck my heart
i could not help but laugh out loud

yummy bacon's a scrumptious treat
usually i eat a pound
don't tell me it ain't good for my heart
i'm still gonna choke it down
