The Lyrics

Some people like exercise, some don't. This guy doesn't...and his friend picks the worst way to fix that...
Sit around on my arse
But you say no
And throw me in your car
This is not fun for me
Was watchin' shows
On my computer screen

Hate to go to this damn place
No fun in a gymnasium
Why'd you drag me he-ere, my friend?
You know I hate gymnasiums

Constantly runnin' in place
Oh, not travelin' far today
All my muscles get sore
As I swear up a storm
Liftin' all of those heavy weights
Know my elbows are gonna break
Yes, no weight's been put on
Bar's heavy, like your mum

Can't do push-ups, my spleen hurts
No fun in this gymnasium
Might throw up if I do curls
You know I hate gymnasiums
Hear a click from over there
We're locked in this gymnasium
Was that you? You dick, how dare
You know I hate gymnasiums
Aware I hate gymnasiums
Hostage in a gymnasium
Not fair, I hate gymnasiums
You're obsessed with gymnasiums
My weight's
Not great
But mate
This ain't

If you had just asked me (we're mates)
I just might have agreed (okay)
A lie? A bit (fair play)
But this is shit
Lose weight?
But mate
This way's

I'm glad that I don't know any friends who would do this. I know my brother is able (as he both exercises and can easily kick my ass) but he doesn't care about my weight.

Now I feel a lot fitter than this guy.

(Artistry) A bit silly, as how was the singer tricked into walking into a gymnasium in the first place? But yeah, I know how the singer(you) feels.

I agree with Agrimorfee a little bit on this one because how can somebody be forced to exercise... I know people have tried with me and that just doesn't happen. I think having the singer regret his decision in order to be healthier would of worked out better and been really accurate for lazy people (like me) lol

Overall, not bad...I think the story could have used some tweaking, but there were some funny lines in there and I love the "gymnasium/America" switch. Nice work!
