The Lyrics

With Ladysmith Black Mambazo. OS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KT6mlW8NlCU
I weigh in the bathroom—see my, see my weight!
Weigh in the bathroom—see my, see my weight!
Weigh in the bath—see my, see my weight!
Yeah, mama, see my, see my weight!
Yeah, mama, see my, see my weight!

Weigh in the bathroom—see my, see my weight!
Weigh in the bathroom—see my, see my weight!
Weigh in the bath—see my, see my weight!
Yeah, mama, see my, see my weight!
Yeah, mama, see my, see my weight!

Weightless, weightless!
Anorexia has doomed my frame.
Weightless, weightless!
Anorexia has doomed my frame.
And I am weightless, I am weightless!
My anorexia has doomed my frame.
And I am weightless, weightless!
My anorexia has doomed my frame.

See your food, see your food.
I’m not hungry, mama, see your food.
See your food, see your food.
I’m not hungry, mama, see your food.
See your food, see your food.
I’m not hungry, Mom, don’t need your food.
See your food, see your food.
I’m not hungry, Mom, don’t need your food.

Doo doo, doo doo doo doo.
Oh, you can’t tell me what to do do do!
Doo doo, doo doo doo doo.
Oh, you can’t tell me what to do do do!

Heaving destroyed my health.
Karen Carpenter, she could be me.
Heaving destroyed my health.
Karen dead, someday it could be me.

And I am fatless, fatless!
Too, bulimia has ruined my frame.
Fatless, fatless!
Too, bulimia has ruined my frame.
Fatless, fatless!
Too, bulimia has ruined my frame.

Some nights I would upchuck, upchuck, upchuck!
To food I’d say hell no, hell no, hell no!
Some days I would upchuck, upchuck, upchuck!
Someday I might die, die, die!
Some nights I would upchuck, upchuck, upchuck!
To food I’d say hell no, hell no, hell no!
Some days I would upchuck, upchuck, upchuck!
Someday I might die, die, die!
Some nights I would upchuck, upchuck, upchuck!

Heed your mama! (Upchuck! Upchuck! Upchuck!)
Heed your mama!
Yes, I’m all alone in this.
(Upchuck! Upchuck! Upchuck!)
Heed your mama! (Upchuck! Upchuck! Upchuck!)
Heed your mama!
Yes, I know I’m acting wrong.
Heed your mama!
Yes, I know I can’t get along.
Heed your mama!
Yes, I know I’m acting wrong.

Upchuck! Upchuck! Upchuck!

Some nights I would upchuck, upchuck, upchuck!
To food I’d say hell no, hell no, hell no!
Some days I would upchuck, upchuck, upchuck!
Someday I might die, die, die!
Some nights I would upchuck, upchuck, upchuck!
To food I’d say hell no, hell no, hell no!
Some days I would upchuck, upchuck, upchuck!
Someday I might die, die, die!

Cool it, Mommy.
Cool it, Mom, cool it, Mommy, says me.
See, I’m so thin!
Step back, now, because I’m gonna faint.
Oh, sh**!

I have said before that quality does not always depend on how funny it is but at times on songs that are heartfelt and may hit home with some people. You may know me as a runner who writes songs about running. I call my group the poetic runners even though I don't really have a group although I wish I did. This song can teach people while it is good to want to be healthy and in shape it is equally dangerous to get so thin to the point of starvation and death. This goes for not only people who starve, eat and purge but also for people who eat and exercise way beyond normal extremes. A great lesson can be learned from this song.

Hey, thanks for the commentary! And this particular parody had been ignored for so long! Happy Valentine's Day!

Personally, I enjoy certain foods far too much to ever make myself want to throw them up. 5s on a terribly over-looked parody!
Matthias - November 19, 2009 - Report this comment
It was pretty repetitious I would have liked to see some variation but with what's presented I don't see anything wrong so I guess it's a good parody in that sense.

(ABC)Hope she doesn't hit 555 lbs., but your parody sure did!!

This could definitely be seen as poor taste by some...but I especially admire the twists on the African chanting.
Stuart McArthur - November 25, 2009 - Report this comment
(ABC) well I DKTOS but I've got an idea it's somewhat repetitive - which would justify your repetitiveness here Melanie - it reminds me of the South Park sketch where Kate Moss (I think) turns around to face the other way, and becomes invisible at the halfway mark - 555

(ABC5-W) Essentially the first half of what Stu said (haven't seen that particular South Park episode). Also 555!
Leo Keough - November 30, 2009 - Report this comment
ABC5(W) Other than needing more variation, this was a great concept and was well executed!!!...555!!!
DJ Blaze - November 30, 2009 - Report this comment
I agree with Leo... repetitive but good, just like my earlier songs, except my earlier stuff sucked. 555
Below Average Dave - December 01, 2009 - Report this comment
I've got to be 100% honest here--it was very repetitive and really didn't give me any laughs, even chuckles, I have written many parodies with a goal other than laughter, I don't know--maybe it's just me, but this one really isn't among your best in my opinion Mel, I'm sorry
Red Ant - December 01, 2009 - Report this comment
This fits with conq's "Why'd I Lose My Lunch". The original song is very thin lyrics-wise - I'd like to have seen them fleshed-out a bit more here. Did you have anyone in particular in miund when you wrote this?
Melanie Lee - December 03, 2009 - Report this comment
Red Ant: no, no one in particular. I had written this in response to another contest, but at that time entered "Everybody Wants to Lose Some Weight" instead. So I thought I'd give "Weightless" its chance here. Everyone: thanks for your comments!
