The Lyrics

How can I
Stick to just light low cal food
When my appetite’s in the mood
To stuff my mouth with some cheese

I despise
Having to consistently say no
So my measurements won’t grow

I need calories!

But even if I hardly eat anything
My pants feel tight

And tell me now

How can I live without food?
I want to know
I want to eat some cashews
I gottta say no
I know I better
Drop down one size
Every month
Every month
For a while

I want two
Of everything in my sight
When I’m walking down and up aisles
And all I see’s groceries

I’ve tried
Everything from Atkins to the Zone
Always keeping something low
It changes each week

57 gurus are giving me
Such mixed advice

And tell me now

How can I live without food?
I want to know
I want to eat and still look
As thin as Nicole
Light as Sienna
Slim as Posh Spice
Late at night
My stomach cries
But I can’t give in

Please tell me baby

How do I go on?

Do-you know I feel?
Any time I look at that skinny bitch
Angie Jolie
Wanna take my finger and stick it in
And set food free

To lose the pounds

How can I live without food?
I want to know
Want to look thin in the nude
And when fully clothed
I gotta measure
One serving size
Stop at one
Two, three, four
Or maybe five

Excellently written and so much better than the original (so sick of the original because a local station (with an adult contemporary format) keeps playing this a lot every day for some reason). 5's

That's how I am most of the time. I'm always a huge eater. I'm used to raid the fridge in the middle of the night and I love to eat rich and fattening foods! But now I have some kind of body conscience telling me what I should eat and what I shouldn't. Well, congrats! You just lost 555 lbs with this one!
