Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

You could never know what it's like
spending each day stuffing food inside
If it's cold left-overs, doesn't bother me - I'll
wind up looking bigger THAN an early retiree

and did you think you'd ever see me thin?
Look at me - I'm a bloating out again
if it's edible I LOVE it - even if it's stale
if you need to know if I'm expanding, just look at these scales

Don't they show that I'm ex-pand-ing,
looking like I might explode
looking like that gay Survivor, Richard,
IN the early episodes
Yes, I'm ex-pand-ing - every single day
Scoffing down the pieces of that cheesecake that you threw away

I'm expanding, yeah yeah yeah
I'm expanding, yeah yeah yeah

Once upon a time I used to be quite thin
THEN somebody gave me fried potato skins
and KFC - I fell in live with you!
And heaven is a night at HOME with chocolate cheese fondue

Stuart, nice job expounding on the ever-expanding problem of over-eating. 5's...

Good job...I'm hungry for more!

Thanks Cookie-man! Too late Kristof - I scoffed 'em down without looking - thanks Paul (might use 'I'm expounding" in another try on this - if that's okay) - thanks Jeff :-)

Excellent Stuart!! 5s!

Of course, Stuart. That's one of the reasons I like to lay out puns and such in my comments. Love to see someone pick up the ball and run with it (hmmm...that might be a "No-No" in the type of "Football" played in your neck of the woods. As my late brother used to say "Mixed metaphors are a pain in the neck and should be thrown out with the baby's bath water" - or something like that, I can't exactly remember it verbatim). This site and these threads are SO helpful in stimulating the creative juices...without it? Think of all the wonderful parodies so many writers post here and how much enjoyment and conversation they engender. Wow! Whoops...gotta get off-line, need to get off my duff and take care of a few errands and things today....later...

Paul: Mixed metaphors is a parody subject all in its own, and one of the few that it wouldn't hurt to see more off, right?

Sir Elton is not a svelte 'n'.

Once again, an overeating parody leads me to dish out a big fat five.

Yummy!

thanks for the votes, Ash - of course it's ENTIRELY fictitious - I'm like my avatar, only more toned :-)

This was funny, but why did you stop midsong (or is it shorter than I ever rememeber?)? And the Richard Hatch line futzed up the pacing. 454
Stuart McArthur - November 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Agri - yes I was surprised too. I downloaded lyrics from 3 sources, thinking the song was longer but all 3 had just the three verses and 1 chorus....as for the Hatch line, it's syllable-correct, but originally wasn't intuitive, which is why I capitalised the "IN" - it's how you read it - sorry but the pacing's perfect :-)

DKTOS, but had to take a peek and find out exactly what it was that was expanding... ;-)

Merry - get thee to a nunnery! (you're disgraceful) - and that DOESN'T mean I necessarily think you're female - Jayzee, you ma main man, dude!
