The Lyrics

This is dedicated to my best friend who is doing quite well after having Lap-Band surgery, and all her fellow Bandsters.
Well it won't go down, no it won't go down
You can chop it up and chew it well
But it won't go down

Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this weight from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground, cuz it won't go down

Hey baby, the band's no easy way out
Hey I will lose these pounds
Cuz it won't go down.

Well I know what's right, but my band's too tight
In a world where food keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground and it won't go down

Hey baby, the band's no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And it won't go down
No, it won't go down

Jan - Deserves more looks than it's gotten so far, mine's only the 2nd vote here (5-4-4). Question: Is this "Lap-Band" surgery the same as that "Stapling" procedure I've heard about in the past? I knew someone who had that done about 35 years ago and wonder if it's the same thing. Well, way past my bed-time for sure now...'nite all...

No, the lap-band is fairly new. Less invasive, reversible, and adjustable. My friend is doing great with it.

Jan Unwin - Thanks for the additional info, Jan. Can't believe this has only garnered two total votes so far. Surely people know this Tom Petty song (I know, stop calling you "Shirley"). And don't they know that this is officially "Jan Unwin Appreciation Week"?
