The Lyrics

There are Fritos within
There are Fritos without
Tried to snack a deluge from a paper cup

Every platter of bread
Makes me fatter by far
Butts'll always be big ends full o'loads while you're dieting like me

They now,
Say now ---
"Don't eat like Rover!"

They now,
Say now ---
"All the world loves thin!"

They'd love,
They'd love ---
To build a small and lean us ----

---- We know that THEY won't win!


Now I'm towing my lard
There's a bowl of my food
My confections are costing me nutrition but they're so good

In the paper today
Tales of war with one's waist
But I turn right over to the gourmet page

They now,
Say now ---
"Don't eat like Rover!"

They now,
Say now ---
"All the world loves thin!"

They'd love,
They'd love ---
To build a small and lean us ----

---- They crow and bray "Bones! Skin!"


( --- instrumental --- )


Now I'm walking again
To defeat a fat bum
And I'm counting my steps to adore my poor heart

Lonely fatso in bed
Barely eating my food
Want to know the feeling of liberation from my grief

Hey now,
Hey now ---
Don't dream you're grosser!

Hey now,
Hey now ---
Love your-self and grin!

They come,
They come ---
Hoping in-sults defeat us ----

---- Don't ev-er let them win!


(Oh) Don't let them win!
( Hey now, hey now! )

( Hey now, hey now! )

Hey now, hey-ey-ey now-ow-ow!

Oh don't-ah-let them win!

( Hey now, hey now! )

Don't let them win!
Yeah!
( Hey now, hey now! )

John D: Doggone, son, ya done did it again. Tim: Dogs will eat almost anything. As David Letterman has taught us, dogs drink out of the toilet, so they're not overly concerned about cereal fillers in their kibble. John B: Give Tong time, it'll come. In fact, you just gave me an idea...
