The Lyrics

Here I stand: On the scale, ate nothing but soup...soup...soup!
Sleepless nights: Losing pounds but reaching for food...food...food!
Eating only sa-a-a-lad...at dinner time
Can't go to McDo-o-o-o-o-nalds, or Popeye's...no french fries!

Someday, lunch will find you
Break those, belts that bind you
One bite will remind you
How to munch, forget your target weight

If your stomach hurts you
Chow down, Eat dessert too
Cupcakes, Captain Crunch too
Time for lunch, forget your target weight

Flabby thighs: Swimming laps my legs were in pain...pain...pain
Exercise: Two aerobics classes in vain...in va-a-ain, in vain
If you must ru-u-u-n, I wish you luck
You'll never dine alo-o-o-o-ne, prepare your lunch, don't miss your lunch

Someday, lunch will find you
Break those, belts that bind you
One bite will remind you
How to munch, forget your target weight

If your stomach hurts you
Chow down, Eat dessert too
Cupcakes, Captain Crunch too
Time for lunch, forget your target weight

Another good one, Jeff! If you're really trying to lose weight, you should try the Survivor Diet... Day One, you can eat all the bugs you can find. Day Two (see Day One) etc... ;)

(ABC3) A very Yankovistic parody, in the Food/Obesity category. Nice job.

(ABC3-T) Excellent! I love the first two lines.

(ABC3-T) DKTOS, but it reads well, like a great recipe.
Jason - March 24, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC3T) Good effort.
Cat - March 24, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC) A bit on the short side...but a great send-up of an OS I absolutely LOATHE!
Stuart McArthur - March 25, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC3T) wow, a VERY early one of yours Jeff - aside from the repeated chorus stanzas (it was early Jeff though!), some nice and witty rhymes - 555
Johnny D - March 25, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC) Now THAT's a parody with gravitas!
Rick C - March 26, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC3T) I didn't realize you'd been around here that long, Jeff. Good parody to a great old OS. 555

(ABC3T) Gee: I wasn't even thinking about writing parodies when you put this one together, Jeff. Solid effort, which gets 5s simply for introducing me to a cheesy but fun Journey tune.

(ABC3-T) I never knew the OS name, though I love it and have heard it a million times. Excellently stuffed, err, excellent stuff, Jeff, with the carried syllables indicated and what not. My target weight is whatever doesn't break the scales and allows me to fit into the clothes I have. 5s.

One note: Usually I pay no attention to URLs, but how was this listed as a Survivor song?

Thanks for the comments, one and all! RA, I botched the original performer when I first submitted the song. Chucky was nice enough to switch it to Journey for me, but the URL stayed the same.

ABC...ha! I don't know that I've ever read this one before but it totally made me giggle, Jeff!

Loved it! 5s
