The Lyrics

Oh, you can't eat forever, like when you were three
Tho' your mama was clever, dietician, not she
Now that you are grown up.
High fat foods aren't too nice
My friend, you'd better own up,
And just take this advice..

Lose a pound, lose a pound,
Whittle your..bootie down
Try to re-duce your calf
Have, on other chubbies, last laugh
Find your lap, no more swells
And you'll find yourself lots more gals
You won't need diet doctors, just put thin in your head
See yourself as a pencil, one without so much lead
You'll wind up a survivor, while your fat friends are dead..
Lose a pound, lose a pound, lose a pound

Lose a pound, lose a pound
Get your bod-y unbound
Stop that cra-zy food fest
Shrink your north, south, east, and your west
Pitch those big..baggy pants
Leave the scav-enging to the ants
Your seamstress and your tailor will thank you for small slacks
So will your chiropractor, you won't need all those cracks..
Your heart and your arteries will start to relax..
Lose a pound, lose a pound, lose a pound

Lose a pound, lose a pound
Walk on floors..with less sound
Lose it slow, by the ounce
And you'll soon decrease large amounts
Give your cells a down trim
You'll hear talk like, "I envy him"
Eliminate four square meals, and cut to just one course
The fat rolls and the cellulite will show no remorse
Don't straddle so much saddle, get a smile from your horse
Lose a pound, lose a pound, lose a pound

Lose a pound, lose a pound
And you'll soon..lose that frown
Learn to move, learn to stretch
And you won't feel like such a wretch
Hole your belt..twenty-eight
Every time you buckle, feel great
Start pacing on that treadmill, and get on the right path
It doesn't take an Einstein here, to figure the math
A fat name fits the "Obits" while the thin gets no wrath,
Lose a pound, lose a pound, lose a pound
