The Lyrics

If someone weighed a ton.....
Got into bed, I made it hit the floor
Next morning I can't see my socks or shoes
The sun is shining so I head for the park
To try to get a good run to work off those pounds

I weigh a ton, in case you didn't know
I bust each scale I stand on, depresses me so
At my apartment, I get stuck in the door
And my steps sometimes go through the floor

Now everybody knows what I wanna do-
Lose a whole lotta weight, I know somehow I'll get through.

Because it's no fun when you weigh an entire ton
It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton

Down at the office I bash into some stuff
I can't see where I am, yeah I am a tub
Up to the counter to see what they think
They want me to pay for spilling the ink
I just bug everybody, least around here cause

It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton
It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton
It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton
It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton
An entire ton, OK

Consideration for a weight loss plan
Is something I'm doing, I've become a huge man
Overeating is my problem, you know that
I gotta control my intake, just control my hand

Just keep on laughing, I've seen that look before
But I'll lose a lot of weight now, is that such a surprise
But I've got a new year's resolution to fulfill
To lose a lot of weight now, before I'm over the hill

Now everybody knows what I wanna do-
Lose a whole lotta weight, I know somehow I'll get through, because

It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton, I tell ya
It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton, and it's getting me down
It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton, no no no no no
It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton, yeah yeah yeah

It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton, I tell ya that
It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton, I tell ya
It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton, no no no
It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton,
It's no fun when you weigh an entire ton, and that's what I weigh.
