The Lyrics

Ever wonder why fast food, although TERRIBLY bad for you, tastes SO good?
It doesn't matter what you pay
So long as it fits your selection
And makes you feel that it's OK
Your value meal will pass inspection

But it's just nothing but carbs
And greasy shortening in big oily cakes
And it don't matter who you are
If they're doing their job then the flavor's all you'll taste

Because the food brings you back
I ain't tellin' you no lies
The food brings you back
Would you like to add some fries?

There is something I missed
I am being insincere
In fact I am not...a nu-tri-tion-ist
Still their concessions draw you near

To confuse the issue I refer
To familiar heroes from long ago
No matter how dumb the Ham-burglar
He wouldn't let his burgers go

Because the food brings you back
I ain't tellin' you no lie
The food brings you back
Add on an apple pie

(harmonica solo)

Suck it in suck it in suck it in
On your chin chin chin, just cram it in
Make a run for food, you're way too thin
And then begin
To see
What you're doing to me this KFC is not fat free
It's so greasy it's killing me
So selfishly it clings to me
My blood
Sure but also salt and fat and bad cholesterol
And I can feel it caking up my walls
Inside, with triglycerides
Could be committing suicide but I've got too much food inside
To hide or cry
Cholesterol is high, I'll let it ride until I die
But until then I gotta try this pie
McDonald's is the place
It's in a billion cities
I no longer have a waist
I have become a man with t*tties
I am round! I've found
My weight, it does astound
How much I weigh, but hey
The pounds go on all day hear what I say
I have a song to play
This really is the last
What I'm saying, dude, is I need food
And I prefer it fast because

The food brings you back
I ain't tellin' you no lie
Be sure to supersize

Thank you. Please drive through
