The Lyrics

She spent a lifetime at 232,
Advertisements for weigh loss plans never true.
Payin' the salesmen hoping to lose,
Finding all their claims were just a ruse!

She was losing her weight in all the wrong places,
Getting strange looks from too many faces,
Had JLo's butt and a figure like a vase's
and limbs as skinny as a bird's!
Now her skin's as baggy as her mother's,
And she'll bless the day she discovers
a weight loss plan that really works!

Well, she tried the Atkins, no carbs in sight,
And she did everything she could to follow it right.
But when her breath turned bad, it had to end.
Her figure only got stranger, won't do that again!

She was losing her weight in all the wrong places,
Getting strange looks from too many faces,
Had JLo's butt and a figure like a vase's
and limbs as skinny as a bird's!
Now her skin's as baggy as her mother's,
And she'll bless the day she discovers
a weight loss plan that really works!

Well, she gave up following fads,
And stopped obsessing over her pads.

No more losing her weight in all the wrong places,
Still getting looks from too many faces,
Has JLo's butt and a figure like a vase's
but her limbs aren't skinny like a bird's!
Still her skin's a lot like her mother's,
And she'll bless the day she discovers
a weight loss plan that really works
In all the right places,
No more strange looks from everyone's faces,
A normal butt and a figure that graces,
and limbs not skinny like a bird's!

Well, this one was a first for me in another way -- it is the first parody I wrote from a foreign country (I now live in Lima, Peru). So if CG reads this, I would like to contact him about updating my bio, hint, hint. -- MM, meowspot@gmail.com

If you're looking for fives, you've come to the right place.

I resemble this parody too close for comfort ... but not too close to give it the fives it deserves!

(ABC3L) I have to agree with Cat, but still a solid parody. Good OS.
Johnny D - December 03, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABC) See above!

(ABC3L) some great lines in that one MM, but I still have a thing against line repetition (although I now see this was a 2005 parody - so I take that back) - 555

Slightly strange, but 5s
Matthias - December 06, 2006 - Report this comment
I also don't like reptition, however, unlike weight talent never fades away
