The Lyrics

Remember when your waist was small
And rolls were something on a plate
Metabolism was so high
It didn't matter what you ate
But too much vanilla ice cream fails
And we've been poisoned by those Twinkie sales
And Richard Simmons shakes his tail
He's such a funny guy

But I know a place where we can jog
That's very scenic, man
No need to turn into a hog
Just get up off of your can
You can pound your two feet on the ground
Enjoy the scenery around you
Exercise is good defense
This is the end, this is the end of the indulgence

Not beautiful, those spacious thighs
Cause fat cells can be threatening
They're recommending lower carbs
And now Splenda is in everything
Couch potatoes, health may fail
And we've been poisoned by those donut sales
And Richard Simmons shakes his tail
He's such a funny guy

But I know a place where we can jog
And burn away this skin
Don't sit and watch your life go by
And eat pre-packaged din din

Just let your two feet pound the ground
Enjoy the greenery around you
Exercise is good defense
This is the end, this is the end of the indulgence

Who knows how long we can last
If we just put bad habits past
Cause search and find it, we all must---
That thinner one in each of us
I need to fit into this
So take away that Hershey kiss
And let me take one final look
Before these fat jeans fly

Just let your two feet pound the ground
Enjoy the scenery around you
Exercise is good defense
This is the end,
This is the end of the indulgence

What a shame that all the foods we love are bad for you. Try going to a farmer's market and look at the fruit in season. That will work up an appitite for things that are good for you.

Love it, Royce. There is a day-old bakery outlet store right up the street from me that sells ENTENMAN'S coffee cakes, donuts, etc 2/3 off. I have to physically restrain myself from turning in every time I drive by. Now I can sing this as I go by :-)

A thigh-tanically good parody. (Sorry, Jay Leno, had to use that one.)

Very good title, very good rhyming, and scary Richard Simmons visual.
