The Lyrics

FYI this is my eighth Billy Joel parody. billy Joel is just so much fun making fun of. Anywho, this song deals with two girls. One is way over weight, and the other used to be but got skinny and, for some reason, can't go back to being fat anymore. Now the fat one acts like its not that big of a deal.
Friday night you're having Hardees
Saturday you're eating Smarties
Sunday comes and you still weight one-ten (110)
You were eating all that stuff
wasn't gaining very much
Was it Dr. Phil or Atkins Protien Plan
They demanded I'd be skin and bones
and all the fatness would be gain
And they said I would no longer have gained
Well you've done once or twice
you were fat then you looked nice
and you said that to you it is all a game

You may be light
I may be lazy
oh, but it just might be an obese chick they're looking for
My fat, it bites
don't try to weigh me
I am not fat, I am big-boned
So you may be light

ahhh, you used to be a big olg bear
alone in your wide rehab chair
you had to eat some fruits, and run a mile
Well you snuck a frying pan
you got caught and ate some yams
I did not do that but you came out with smiles
Now just think of the buffet that told you
ALL YOU CAN EAT, does not mean to

If that is the method to
being as skinny as you
then just bring the ham-bur-gers and t-bone steak
scrapr ev-er-ry-thing onto your plate
You may be light
I may be lazy
oh, but it just might be an obese chick they're looking for
my pants are tight
so are my G-strings
I am not fat, I am big-boned
So you may be light

You may be light
I may be lazy
oh, but it just might be an obese chick they're looking for
My fat, it bites
don't try to weigh me
I am not fat, I am big-boned
So you may be light

I am big-boned
So you may be light
repeat until fade
