The Lyrics

A finger-snappin' up-tempo number for all you hep-cat Ray Charles fans - inspired by when this OS made it's snappy appearance in the movie "Ray!"...................................................download the OS from http://www.stuartmcarthur.com/HitTheRoadJack.mp3
Sick of low-fat
I don't want that crap
no more no more no more no more
sick o' low-fat
I don't want that crap no more

...whad I say?

Stick "The Zone" mac
and all of those At-
kins low-carb, no-carb, low-carb laws
cannot go back
to low-carb crap no more

well, gimme a super-duper scoopin' of fries
add an extra super to my "super-size"
I'm stuffin' it in - I'm a mountain of meat
I'm lovin' every finger-lickin pound
I eat!

sick of fruit, mac
so don't gimme that
paw-paw paw-paw paw-paw paw-paw
sick o' stewed snacks
and anything healthy or raw

...whad I say?

just like Kojak
I wanna have stacks
of chuppa chuppa chups to gnaw
unlike Womacks
there's no teardrups no more

I always was determin-edly hopin' to lose
all the flab that my metabolism won't use
just to watch the scale-needle scootin' back west
every day was mis'reeble - who woulda guessed?
well I shoulda realised before!
that MORE - not less! - is more
(THAT'S RIGHT!)

ditched the prozac
I don't need quacks
no more no more no more no more
gonna go back
'n discover my omnivore

...whad I say!

Sick of low-fat
take me to a tac-
-o store, senor, senor, senor
wanna grow fat
gimme enchiladas galore - (well)

til I'm sinkin' right through that floor - (no way!)
til ya hafta widen up that door - (hot damn!)
til there aint no space no more - (hey whoa!)
til I'm meati-er than Al Gore - (now wait!)
never ever hafta eat coleslaw - (oh man!)
I'm a-ready and I'm gonna explore - (explore?)
where no man's ever gone before - (what the?)
gonna be an island off Timor - (is that possible?)

it's what I say!

I've used this joke plenty of times, but it applies here: I just ate this one up! Agri: Seeing as how Ray once did a version of "Jack" for a Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial, I'd say you're right.

Do some more, Mack! This is awsome, Stu. I'll vote right after I stuff this double chubby-chuck into my mouth. Super-sized 5's

Very good parody, Stuart, but I think you have a long way to go to catch up with Al Gore.

A culinary maserpiece. I'll see your three 5's and raise you two chicken legs.

Really, really clever....some great wordplay, fun rhyme schemes, and LOL moments. SOTM? 555
Jeff Reuben - July 14, 2005 - Report this comment
Very well done, I love a good no-diet song!
Red Ant - December 01, 2005 - Report this comment
(ABC-S05) See above, and you went way way beyond TOS in not repeating a single line in the choruses, approaching the surreal towards the end which made it all the funnier. "Coleslaw" doesn't rhyme right though to my American ears, so this is only 99.95% perfect. ;-)

(ABC05) I got a kick out of all of the "no way" and "hot damn"s at the end and, "gonna go back 'n discover my omnivore".
