The Lyrics

Johnny D beat me to the punch with "Tights I'm Quite Fat In." And this comes well after the Frank Lockner classic "I Love Krispy Kremes." Oh well.
Call me a porker, call me a slob.
Right at this moment, it's corn on the cob.
No Pepsi Crystal, got no relief.
I feel like I'm eating prime cuts of beef.
Sometimes it feels like I gain weight too fast.
I don't know how long my stomach will last.
Maybe an ulcer tonight.

Darling, I don't know why I burst at the seams.
Too much a big dork when I eat pork and beans.
And if the pizza I call leaves me feeling undertall
darling, I don't know why I burst at the seams.

Sometimes I'm hungry, sometimes I'm not.
Sometimes I check how much ice cream I got.
Maybe I'm taking a new diet pill.
Maybe it leads to addiction or kill.
Tell me how much more you think I can eat
until my artery clogging's complete.
Sometimes I've gotten my fill.

Darling, I don't know why I burst at the seams.
Too much a big dork when I eat pork and beans.
You see this diet I'm on, I won't be on it too long.
Darling, I don't know why I burst at the seams.

Out of McDonald's, into Starbucks.
Leaving the pie of key lime.
Either I'm starved or I'm perfectly stuffed every time.
Sometimes I lie awake night after night
barbecue enters my dreams.
Eager to chomp, ready to bite.
Why do I burst at the seams?

And if the pizza I call leaves me feeling undertall
darling, I don't know why I burst at the seams.

No, I don't know why I burst at the seams.
Too much a big dork when I eat pork and beans.
You see this diet I'm on, I won't be on it too long.
Darling, I don't know why I burst at the seams.

I don't know why, I don't know why!

I don't know why, I don't know why!

Out of McDonald's, into Starbucks!

I don't know why, I don't know...

I liked the undertall line. Not true, I hope.

Close enough: Since I got this new job, I've been able to afford better food, and I've gained 20 pounds. (Yeah, no more Sears, free at last. There WILL be a parody about that soon!)

So, MP where are you employed at now? Writing lyrics for the Who? 'We don't get food again'. Can't wait for your Sears episode to come along.

I see what you mean. You are the Billygoat Joel master. You must have pianist envy.

I didn't realize how far up the chart you had gotten, Rick. Good grief! :D

I thought this one was gonna be about young Captain Kirk, but I guess itīs about old engineer Scotty. ;-)

My new job will have to remain a secret for now. Though it's not one of those "I could tell ya, but then I'd have to kill ya" jobs. And if I were writing lyrics for The Who, it would be "Meet the new Bush, worse than the old Bush!" I guess Mr. Tong hasn't thought of that one yet. And (unintentional Beatle pun here) for Know 1, Shatner and Doohan gave new meaning to "Ah can't change th' laws o' physics, Captain!" But at least Doohan's hair is real!
