The Lyrics

My mate.. says 'cause I'm overweight
In a state, unfit.. looking gross, feeling shit

I'm eating chocolate - putting on a load o' fat
Got a big waistline, I'm bending space-time
Gravity is all mine, grunt, no, strength,
The batter doesn't matter with a calorie count, that's
Higher'n a fryer, full of full-fat Mars bars
And a body feeling dire like a wombat shite
Heavy body never in a hurry as I wobble-bobble
What the heck?

You see me, floppy-bottomed, waddle toddle walk
Look at you - piss-take, fine, then
Uh oh, overflow, can you see yourself grow
But it'll do, feed yourself, stuff yourself
Overdone our own greed, I know what we both need
Anaerobic exercise, burning off the french fries
You despising, patronising, won't run, won't fight
Am I doing right?

I'm attending a class in aerobics
It's a blend of high farce and heroics
And I'll end on my arse, and I know it... I won't whine

Six o'clock, T.V. dinner, is my butt getting thinner
Got the urge, regurg- itating the last splurge
Can't fit in uniform, bulimic, no gimmick
Every muscle will vibrate, spare tyre oscillate
Pushing right, pushing left, stretch up, stretch down
Bend my knees, creak, creak, uh oh
Am I a backyard old guard, retard in a leotard
It's punishment, it's punishment this bloody exercise
Giving out pollution, giving out that CO2 as I recline

I'm attending a class in aerobics
I'm distending my arse, but I'm stoic
My rear end's way too vast, and I know it... waste of time

I'm attending a class in aerobics (It's time I lost some weight, you know)
I suspend disbelief as I go, it (It's time you lost some weight, you know)
Will be ending of me, and I know it and I resign (It's time we lost some weight, you know)


The other night I dreamt o' nice continental cheese and wine
Piles of food in a line, cooked by Rick Stein
Blumenthal, Masterchef, Jamie Bloody Oliver
Birthday nibbles, cheesecake, jellybean, FOOD!
You narcissistic, parasitic, thin but heck! Night, Night!

I'm attending a class in aerobics (It's time I lost some weight, you know)
Just pretend to squeeze past and don't blow it (It's time you lost some weight, you know)
I will send for some fast food, and bro' it tastes real fine (It's time we lost some weight, we're gross)

I'm attending a class in aerobics
It's a blend of high farce and heroics
As I end on my arse, and I know it... I won't whine

(It's time I lost some weight, I know)

This is exactly like my parody of this song that placed 3rd in SOTM... A bit too similar if you ask me, I don't know how to vote on this, cause it's kinda like you stole my idea, but I know you're better than that so I'm just confused...
alvin - March 04, 2009 - Report this comment
this cracked me up...it must have been a workout even composing this to that demanding OS...i've never had the courage to even attempt it...bravo

Well, I guess that'll teach me not to sit on something for such a long time - this one's been on the drawing board for two years or so, with only the odd line left to complete for months. I've just had a quick peek at yours, though, and there's no overlap lyrically at all: I'm sorry if you think I nicked the idea, but it's a natural extension of the title sub, which I kind of like.
Claude Prez - March 04, 2009 - Report this comment
Actually, it's a great title sub. No offense to Matthias, but both parodies are really good and way different; if he hadn't pointed it out I never would have noticed the similarity (which is there, to be fair, but obviously a coincidence). Anyway, great stuff as always Phil, to an OS that looks really difficult; hard to pick a fave line but "retard in a leotard" stood out a bit.

Not going to lie that title sub is perfect!

That hard work on a difficult song paid off well. Great job, Phil!
Dr. Oliver Clozoff - March 04, 2009 - Report this comment
This was really good, and probably lots of work!
Phil Alexander - March 05, 2009 - Report this comment
:-) Thanks, guys..

Say, Alvin... looks like you managed to sneak a comment in while I was typing mine

Hi Claude - good to see you around - have to admit my favourite line is "a blend of high farce and heroics", which is pretty much what it would be if I ever tried this aerobics lark

Matthias - :-) Thanks

Mark - Yes, it is one of the more difficult songs to parody (as Matthias will probably agree)

Oliver - I think I've mentioned you in one of my (somewhat ancient) parodies... "Has Anybody Seen Mike Rotch?"
Joe Siebert - March 05, 2009 - Report this comment
Love it. This must've been a rather tough song to make a parody of, but I think it's good. Perfect 555 from this end.
