The Lyrics

Low-carbohydrate diet is one of the best ways of controlling your weight. It can be done on purely vegetarian basis as well.
Gimme gimme, gimme just some sauerkraut - legumes, that's good for you
Gimme gimme, gimme some Brussels sprouts - add in a lot of tofu!

Atkins - Atkins veggie, don't worry, don't hurry, your weight's in control!
Atkins - Atkins veggie, let the good vegs get a lot stronger!

(2 sets instrumental)

Gimme gimme, gimme just a little squash, tomato's good for you -
is that too much?
Gimme gimme, gimme cucumber crush, and asparagus too.

Join the-
Atkins - Atkins veggie, don't worry, don't hurry, your weight's in control!
Atkins - Atkins veggie, let the good vegs get a lot stronger!

Atkins - Atkins veggie, don't worry, don't hurry, your weight's in control!
Atkins - Atkins veggie, let the good vegs get a lot stronger!

(5x) Let the good vegs get a lot stronger,

Haven't eaten meat in a dozen years myself, and have trouble keeping up my weight. What's the rationale for the diet, just lower calories? Also, I've never encountered the word "vegs". How to pronounce that? Rhymes with "legs"? (Sec code VAJ probably doesn't help!)
