Parody Song Title:

"I'm Gettin' Round"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

one stone = 14 pounds; saturnine: sluggish in temperament
CHORUS:
I'm getting' round,
Round, round, gettin' round,
I'm gettin' round,
Yeah,
Gettin' round, round, round,
I'm gettin' round.

I'm gettin' round,
Packin' pounds.
I eat too much bread,
I am way overfed.

I'm gettin' bulged fryin' up those mounds of bacon strips,
They gotta find a place to go, and it's my hips.

My butt won't recede--it's hittin' near twelve stone,
I'm a fat guy, bloatin' up like an Elvis clone.

CHORUS

I cannot shake the carbs, 'cause I love leavened treats
And I never miss gettin' my mitts on sweets.

One of my thighs is so heavy, I couldn't wear tights.
As I ingest corn curls, I'm a saturnine sight.

CHORUS x2

Since Malcolm did, indeed, use the obvious joke... I'm serving you a five-course meal. (That's also been done before.)
