The Lyrics

I don't like fitness -
The normal kind
That is just the way
I was designed
The only part of me that races is my mind

Oh to conclusions
I jump for sure
And I've been running
For the school board
I often push my kids by making them do more

I should be fit 'cause, I should be fit 'cause
I've been exercising my freedom of speech
I should be limber, and really fit 'cause
Way up to the stars is where I try to reach
I have been swimming in a sea of doubt
My logic takes me round and round

I'm burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so
Burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so
I'm burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so
Burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so

I should be fit 'cause, I should be fit 'cause
I've been exercising my freedom of speech
I should be limber, and really fit 'cause
Way up to the stars is where I try to reach
I have been swimming in a sea of doubt
My logic takes me round and round

I'm burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so
Burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so
I'm burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so
Burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so

I've lifted some weight off of my chest and
I have been climbing up the social ladder
Everything I'm doing is completely active
Everything I'm doing should decrease my fatness
Everything

That's why I'm burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so
Burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so
I'm burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so
Burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so

Burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so
Burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so
Burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so

Burning calories I think I'm burning calories I really think so

This is hilarious - great job, funny parody, very witty! 5's ! "Burning calories" is an inspired internally-rhymed parody of "Turning Japanese" !!
