The Lyrics

I can't fight these cravings any longer,
'Cause I just ate a tube of cookie dough.
What started out as hunger, has grown stronger
I think of chocolate candies everywhere I go

I tell myself that I have to start a diet
I wish I could be skinny as a rail,
But when I try to lose weight, it's a riot
I go a day without food,
And I suddenly turn pale.

And as I wander for snacks,
I try to keep 'em light
But I wake up with these cravings
In the middle of the night
And I'm weighing more than a couple of Chevys might

And I can't fight these cravings anymore
I am always hangin' 'round the kitchen door
I make ten daily visits to the store
And fill my cart galore with goodies.

And I can't fight these cravings anymore,
I am always hangin' 'round the kitchen door.
And if I had to crawl upon the floor,
Just for a piece of pork,
Baby, I can't fight these cravings anymore.

I weigh so much, since I ate those beef burritos.
I've been gainin' pounds since I took that first bite
And it seems that you're tryin' to get me to exercise
'Cause you're always draggin' me down,
To the jogging track.

And as I wander for snacks,
I try to keep 'em light
But I wake up with these cravings
In the middle of the night
And I'm weighing more than a couple of Chevys might

And I can't fight these cravings anymore
I am always hangin' 'round the kitchen door
I make ten daily visits to the store
And fill my cart galore with goodies.

And I can't fight these cravings anymore,
I am always hangin' 'round the kitchen door.
And if I had to crawl upon the floor,
Just for a piece of pork,
Baby, I can't fight these cravings anymore.

Good song...I especially like the line "What started out as hunger, has grown stronger" =)

Did the one-guy visit me again, or is it really that bad? Jeff, thanks for the comments!

Nah, not bad. The only strike against you is that Jeff's already done it. I gave you 4/5/5 because I have an issue with the pacing, but otherwise it was very nice :)

Thanks RC-- I always get these good ideas, and someone's already done something like it ;) And yeah, the pacing was off a little bit in some places, especially the 2nd verse.
