The Lyrics

The lyrics may be confusing but then again so were the original lyrics
It's been one week since you ate with me
Broke the door down and said I'm hungry
Five days since you tried the pie
Hadn't had ice cream since the middle of July
Three days since the pizza crust
Thank goodness that you found it on the bus
Yesterday you'd forgiven me
Because it'll still be two days that you go hungry

Hold it now look and watch my shakes
I really need my pancakes
You think you can have salt-water clams
But I can see in your eyes that's wrong
Because you want a big piece of sliced ham
Know it's hard to pass at dinnertime
When it looks so fine
But you are trying something new
You've decided to go on a diet
Yeah maybe I oughta try it
It is hard when you first start
Giving up your favorite brownie bake
And giving up your chocolate shake
Giving it up for food that has little flavor
Gotta let you have a little donut hole
Or else your pressure will grow
And you'll react with lots of evil behavior

I can see that you don't want soup from a can
I know you want food sizzled in a frying pan
But you know I can't fry it
Can't understand what I mean
Well you are on a diet
You had a tendency to always eat lots of beef
Now you only get to eat lettuce leafs

It's been one week since you ate with me
Broke the door down and said I'm hungry
Five days since you tried the pie
Hadn't had ice cream since the middle of July
Three days since the pizza crust
Thank goodness that you found it on the bus
Yesterday you'd forgiven me
Because it'll still be two days that you go hungry

To get all those fast food things
Well then go to Burger King
But I don't know where to go to
When you wanna go buy tofu
Well you know it can't be all bad
Just try a little salad
You always want another piece of pie
Well I have to say no
Think you better go
I can't really explain why
Can't give you food anymore
Leave kick you out my door
All this food is fattening can't you see
Why not go to the store
Where the choices there are many more
They have more food that's fat free

I can see that you don't want soup from a can
I know you want food sizzled in a frying pan
But you know I can't fry it
Can't understand what I mean
Well you are on a diet
You had a tendency to always eat lots of beef
Now you only get to eat lettuce leafs

It's been one week since you ate with me
Broke the door down and said I'm hungry
Five days since you tried the pie
Hadn't had ice cream since the middle of July
Three days since the pizza crust
Thank goodness that you found it on the bus
Yesterday you'd forgiven me
Because it'll still be two days that you go hungry
