The Lyrics

Dave's not here...
It used to seem to me
That my thighs were much too vast
And I had to sit down slowly
Just to make the good pants last
But when you're born to bulge
It's so hard to just slim down
So don't be surprised to see me
Packin' the pie-party pounds

I'll be back in the wide life again
All the chairs I broke one time
will blow apart again
I'll be back in the wide life again
All the belts that notched me once
will fail to take me in

And I'll drink and eat with no hands free
Packin' pizza into me
An overloaded manatee
Back in the wide life again

Food chewed'll be the best
To make life be wide for us
We know that food's still out there
Let's eat on a Greyhound Bus
We'll have ourselves a feast
As we're rollin' down the road
Eatin' psychedelic mushrooms
Lickin' tripped-out, horny toads

We'll be back in the HIGH life again
All the brains we wasted once
We'll stupefy again
We'll be back in the HIGH life again
All the bongs we washed out once
We'll resinate again

And we'll sing and dance so Grateful-ly
And leave this world so easily
And out-of-body we will be
Back in the HIGH life again

Reading your parody gave me a couple of my own. Not sure if they have been done but "Drinking the High Life again" (about that terrible beer Miller High Life) AND "Back In The High Life Again" about a stoner who is going back into smoking pot after taking a break from it (that's what I thought your parody was about originally).

I like the line about "Gratefully". Can relate to the food imagery. Great use of a fine original song.

With the cost of food these days, I know what you mean by HIGH life..
