The Lyrics

As well, dumbbell means "fool,"
Beyond the iron
Ya heft to make the gym rats drool
When you’re lyin’
With arms weight-flyin’.

Then you try to stand up,
But you’re weighted down.
You can’t get a hand up
’cause those damn things each weighs 50 pounds.

Look what befell poor you:
In pumping iron:
You’re tirin’.

What to do
With these two
Above you;
Sweat on you’s runnin’ down,
Soakin’ your hair
And your whole body.
You scream real loud. . .
Can’t hear you.

And then one fell on you,
Which makes you whine.
