The Lyrics

She is svelter than you,
In fact, she's lithe.
You weigh in at 4-0-2.
Too much fryin',
Too much food fryin.

Every time you stand on
The scales. . .put feet down
Number's gonna land on
Grand total--more than 400 pounds.

She is svelter than you.
In fact, she's lithe,
So lithe.

4-0-2--get it down,
Or else prepare
For coronary--
You're much too round.

She is svelter than you--
Just 1-0-5.

[fade on sound of springs breaking in scale]

She might be svelter, but is she smarter?
