"Better Watch What You Eat"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Theme of morbid obesity in America...
OK…Del taco,
Carl‘s Jr, McDonald‘s, Taco Bell, Subway, BK, Pizza Hut…???

Goin’ out around the town
Searchin’ for someplace new to eat
Fast food’s everywhere and the time is now
Better watch out what you eat
$5 Box at Taco Bell
Angus burgers at McDonald’s
Healthier foods at Subway

All we need is restraint, self-restraint
When there’s fast food everywhere
No more full trays, beer bellies, midnight binging,
Better watch what you eat (groan)

It doesn't matter what you can’t wear,
Just start slimmin’ here & there
So come on, obese guy, don‘t chow down, eat smart, gotta slim you down
Thin people will be watchin‘, watchin’ what you eat

It's an indication of an obese nation, super-sizing and greasy meat
They'll be eating and drinking, binging and gorging
Better watch what you eat

Philadelphia Cheese Steak
Chicken sandwich at BK now
Don't forget pizza delivery
Stuff yourself ‘til you get ill
NOW get back to the salad bar!!!
No matter how fat you are

All we need is restraint, self-restraint
When there’s fast food everywhere
No more full trays, beer bellies, midnight binging,
Better watch what you eat (groan)


It doesn't matter what you can’t wear,
Just start slimmin’ here & there
So come on, obese guy, don‘t chow down, eat smart, gotta slim you down
Thin people will be watchin‘, watchin’ what you eat

Eat less each and every day
Better watch what you eat
It’ll pay off one day
When you see how much you weigh
Better watch what you eat

Take it slow (Big Guy)
Thin people will be watchin’
Better watch what you eat
Better watch what you eat

Our UK government could learn a thing or two from you, Rob - instead of all their po-faced public service announcements they should just use this excellent parody! I'm gonna make like the waistline of the junk-food chowers and dish up a 555!
