The Lyrics

My first Tom Petty parody and I'm only 41.
Oh baby don't you feel like eating a cow.
Don't you have a craving for some ice cream?
Yeah have a six-pack and drink it like a fish.
Doesen't that anorexia make you want to scream?
Which twin are you, Mary Kate or Ashley Olsen?
Baby if you want fame you must have a death wish.
I said yeah, yeah...yeah, yeah, yeah yeah.

Gaining weight won't make you a Star.
You better find a home at the salad bar.
Look what it did for Carlista Flockhart.
Gaining weight won't make you a Star.

You felt guilty about a couple of hamburgers now.
You see fat people, don't make a sound.
Yeah, ask yourself what would Nicole Ritchie do?
Would she swear off food and take a solemn vow?
Or would she stuff her face when no one was around?
Then they'd run her out of town, run her out of town now.
I said yeah, yeah...yeah, yeah, yeah yeah.

Gaining weight won't make you a Star.
You better exercise if you want that part.
Eating bread crumbs will make you starve.
Gaining weight won't make you a Star.

Oh, don't think about it baby, just avoid that food.
Don't think about it baby, just avoid that food.
Stay out of that cookie jar, have yourself some tofu.
Don't eat that candy bar; just try to avoid that food.
Yeah, yeah...yeah, yeah, yeah yeah.

Gaining weight won't make you a Star.
You better find a home at the salad bar.
Look what it did for Carlista Flockhart.
Gaining weight won't make you a Star.

Yeah, gaining weight won't make you a Star.
No, no nooo, won't make you a Star.
No, no nooo, won't make you a Star.
