The Lyrics

i'm in a big rush...a quick pace
i really stuff my face
no traumas...i don't blush
i don't feel disgrace
i look at my reflection... i am fat everyplace
i'm not hurt when the people say that i've had my fill
bulbous and i'm bulging
some will say my weight is appalling...appalling !
i say screw them all...i pig out still

tempted by one food or another
tempted by all food i discover
i keep eating on...now my figure's gone
i've got blubber
tempted by one food or another
tempted and i just can't recover

i hear the remarks...the retorts
they say i'm big as hell
the people keep on gabbing
they contend that i'm not well
i sit in jubilation when i hear that dinner bell
if you ain't tried...don't knock it
don't tell me that you're shocked
my body gets much grosser
i know the folks will talk
amazed...that i can function

tempted by one food or another
tempted by all food i discover
i keep eating on...now my figure's gone
i've got blubber
tempted by one food or another
tempted and i just can't recover

i never grovel...'bout my doom
my weight i do not rue
they tell me its unhealthy...i think that its untrue
upon closer inspection...i can't tell that i have grew

tempted by one food or another
tempted by all food i discover
i keep eating on...now my figure's gone
i've got blubber
tempted by one food or another
tempted and i just can't recover

Alvin, I am getting this really interesting picture of you - you weigh 300lbs, need a nose job and spend all day smoking reefer and watching South Park? Then you creep out at night when the moon is full and write these wonderfully paced parodies... ;-)

It was pretty good. I give it a perfect score.
