The Lyrics

I hear you talk about your grocery list
I wish I knew just what that means
I guess my mother never learned to shop
I'd even eat some pork 'n' beans

My sister told me just the other day
she'd found a way to get some food
My problem is I'm not a sexy girl
I guess I just can't be a whore
and I'm sorry

I need to eat, it's so pathetic
I can't believe, I'm anorexic
I never needed anyone to feed me, but I need some food
Will I just have to eat myself? Have to eat my...

My mother has never, ever liked to cook
and now, she says she don't like meat
After work, she eats at a health food store
she said she'd bring some home to me
I don't love her

I need to eat, it's so pathetic
I can't believe, I'm anorexic
I never needed anyone to feed me, but I need some food
Will I just have to eat myself? Have to eat myself

I saw a cookie laying on the sidewalk
no one was around, so I ate it all
'cause I'll take a meal, wherever I can
like my father, like my father

It's so pathetic
I can't believe, I'm anorexic
I tried to eat beets, I failed at it
I guess starvation is now a habit

I hear you talk about your grocery list
I wish I knew just what that means

Several good lines in here. Not the one with the cookie on the sidewalk, other ones.. ;-)

Thanks Tim. Since you're one of the top writers here, (fairly) high praise for one of my songs from you means alot. But now...to the person who gave my all 1's...if you think my song is unfunny, and just sucks overall, that's fine. But how can you give me a 1 on pacing? Haven't you heard the original?

Good job...well to highlight this serious health condition. 5's

Billy, there are some pitiful people out there who are so jealous of parody writers' talent and skill that they feel compelled to vote all 1's. Even when a parody's pacing is good, or even when they don't even know the original song, these pitifully insecure people still vote 1's because they want to punish the parody writer for being smarter and more talented and gifted than they are. Putting down others who they know are more gifted and skilled than them is how these all-1's-voters try to hide from their own lack of self-esteem.
