The Lyrics

This could be one of the best hits on my album of parodying all of Billy Joel's 1st Greatest Hits with Fast Food- themed songs. So, for your reading enjoyment, I present: Burger King is Fine
Some folks never have red meat
They're afraid to eat anything that's good
For them fat foods are just out of reach
They just "Never could."
But I'm making this statement
Always keep it on your mind
I think that Burger King is fine

You'll always know where you are
With the stopped cars in the drive-thru line
But I don't mind the wait, because the food's divine
I just know that I need food
So I had better not waste time
I think that Burger King is fine

I just get so fat eating there all day
It's their food that I'll always chew
But now I'm afraid to see what I weigh
'Cause of the fries, and Mountain Dew

I'm ready for fatality
When my heart don't beat from those greasy fries
Don't care; I know that everyone here dies
My life's pointless anyhow
I'll leave my soul behind
I think that Burger King is fine

I just get so fat eating there all day
It's their food that I'll always chew
But now I'm afraid to see what I weigh
'Cuz of the fries, and Mountain Dew

I'm ready for fatality
When my heart don't beat from those greasy fries
Don't care; I know that everyone here dies
My life's pointless anyhow
I'll leave my soul behind
I think that Burger King is fine

But I'm making this statement
Always keep it on your mind
I think that Burger King is fine

I don't like Burger King, but this was good. Except the original is from 1976, not the Eighties, but I didn't deduct for that.
