The Lyrics

The other side of my BJ parody "She's Gotta Weigh."
Friday night I ate so hearty.
Saturday I looked so lardy.
Sunday game, I pigged right out again.
I was only having lunch.
Hot dogs, yeah, I had a bunch.
And I even picked the check up for a change!

I went through a Baskin-Robbins cone.
I stalked the buffet line alone.
Even rode the rollercoaster after that.
And you told me, it's no jive
you're surprised I'm still alive.
So I say that only proves I'm not too fat!

You may be light!
I may be heavy!
Ho! But it just may be your man's the Refrigerator!
Turn down the light
food that you give me.
It may be wrong, me eating so
but you may be light!

Well...
Remember how I found you there
in health-food place's swivel chair?
You showed me artichokes, I didn't smile.
You were lonely for a man.
I said take my frying pan
'cause you might enjoy some flabness for a while.

Now think of all the years you tried it
every new fad kind of diet.
I might be as chubby as they say.
If I'm portly then it's true
if you leave me I'll be blue
and I'll lose my appetite and waste away!

You may be light!
I may be heavy!
Ho! But it just ain't Ally McBeal that I'm looking for!
Calories tonight!
Doc Atkins can bite me!
It may be wrong, me eating so
but you may be light!

(guitar and saxophone breaks)

Yeah, you may be light!
I may be heavy!
Hey! But it just may be your man's the Refrigerator!
Turn down the light
food that you give me.
It may be wrong, me eating so
but you may be light!

It may be wrong, but you may be light!
It may be wrong, but you may be light!
(You may may may be light!)
It may be wrong, but you may be light!
(You may may may be light!)
It may be wrong, but you may be light!
(You may may may be light!)
It may be wrong, but you may be light!
(You may may may be light!)
It may be wrong, but you may be light!
(repeat 'til fade)

It's pretty good. It's funny how great minds think alike, huh? If you think I copied it, then your wrong, not to be rude... I actually sent it in before, but just decided to resend it. You can check though on my author page. No hard feelings, Major B
