The Lyrics

No Mexicans were harmed in the making of this parody.
I've tried Jenny and Weight Watchers
When they all had their special offers
But their systems didn't aide
I increased my waist anyway

So I thought and tried something different
From Mexico to be specific
A weight control to wash the pounds away
That was banned here by the FDA

I'm taking Mexican diet pills
Just two a day will help control my will
I'm taking Mexican diet pills

The first week there was no effect
Until I had a change in dialect
Then I broke into a sunburn rash
And woke up with a strange wet back

I'm taking these Mexican diet pills
And I'm breaking out in hot tamale chills
I'm taking Mexican diet pills

My hair's turned black, no longer sunny
And all my words come out a little funny
Now my skin has turned brown ash
I don't remember growing this moustache!

Then I looked and read the label
What I saw made me feel unstable
Instead of pills that make me thin
They turn me into a Mexican

I'm now a Mexican American
Just trying to stay in the U.S. of A
I'm now a Mexican American
Now all I say is No Habla Ingles?

Mexican
Mexican
( No Habla Ingles )
Mexican
Mexican

( Fade )

This is such a hilarious parody, Dan! Wow, I heard that diet pills have serious side effects, such as stimulants, but foreigner transformation? That's a new one on me! I also heard about this condition where people talk in foreign accents called the FAS due to severe brain injury. But all in all, you were very creative with the plots in your lyrics. Here's 5 tacos, 5 burritos, and 5 refried beans with this one! Ole, hombre!

Reminds me of a parody I wrote back in 2005 called "Discount Mexican Pharmacy" that I had deleted because I didn't like it very much. But this was much more specific and different in the side effects and results! Funny stuff, 555 pills

Would it be inappropriate to call this good job "one big phat parody"? ;D

This one sounds like it should be...
"Played on "Dementia Radio!"

I lol'd at "hot tamale chills," by the way. 555
