The Lyrics

See it all around you
Good muffin gone bad
And usually it's too late, when you realize what you had
And I'm blind as a bat in a world, and I've got ulcers
On my old feet

Just lay off pastry
Sweet n' low
In your iced tea
You're gonna lose your toe
You're givin' a shot of insulin
A whole lotta painful prickin'

I'm so damn queasy
When blood sugar goes up
Hold on to your meter
You test it too much

And I'm blind as a bat in a world, and I've got ulcers
On my old feet
Just lay off pastry
Sweet n' low
In your iced tea
You're gonna lose your toe

Don't let life slip away
Said I ate some food
Don't let coma set in -- no way
Yeah, yeah, yeah

That food all around you
Good muffin gone bad
And usually it's too late when you, realize what you had
And I'm blind as a bat in a world, and I've got ulcers
On my old feet

Just lay off pastry
Sweet n' low
In your iced tea
You're gonna lose your toe

Your givin' a shot of insulin
A whole lotta painful prickin'

So lay off pastry
Sweet n' low
If you drink some sweet tea, baby
You're gonna lose it
You're gonna lose -- your toes

Yeah, yeah, yeah

So lay off pastry
Sweet n' low
In your iced tea
You're gonna lose your toe

Lay off pastry
Sweet n' low
If you get a freakin' ulcer
You're gonna lose your toes
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Sir, try Agave syrup from the health food stores; it is made from the blue Weber Agave cactus which also produces Tequila! It keeps the glycemic level low in the bloodstream.

Certain sections were funnier than others. Overall it was just ok, the pacing is jumbled in a few places and feels rushed. Sorry, I'm gonna go with 333's.
