I’m Sorry, Garth Brooks

video

Blame it all on my blog
I work out like a dog,
And kill on my weigh-in each week.
Each Sunday, you know,
Each Sunday I show,
It’s the time I give
A glimpse of my physique.
But now I’m about done
With my weight-losing fun.
Just popped a bottle of lite champagne.
I may be at goal weight
But, honey, don’t get irate,
Cuz’ there’s others that’re losin’ as well.

Oh, I've got friends with low weigh-ins
Bringing their numbers down,
And trying to chase those pounds away.
And we’ll all be okay.
I'm not big like when I was buffeting.
Think I'll go do some basketball playing.
Oh, I've got friends with low weigh-ins.

Well, there’s Fat Daddy Rants
and ol’ F. McButter Pants
And Daily Diary’s big loser Sean.
They’re doing real well,
They’re rockin’ that scale.
This is a great adventure that they are on.
Hey, I didn't wish
To leave out Starfish.
Just give me an hour and then
Well, I’ll give you a list
Of bloggers that shouldn’t be missed
When they’re weighin’ in....

'Cause I've got friends with low weigh-ins.
Bringing their numbers down,
And trying to chase those pounds away.
And we’ll all be okay.
I'm not big like when I was buffeting.
Think I'll go do some basketball playing.
Oh, I've got friends with low weigh-ins.

282.5’s in the mix,
as well as 266.
Fixing Myself Thinner's Dawn.
Escape from Obesity’s Lyn,
Not to mention Tamzin.
Between 'em all that's a lot of pounds gone.
I don’t mean to cause a big scene,
But we losin’ a great deal of mass.
So how about you?
Can you lose it, too?
Why you bet your sweet ass!

'Cause you’ve got friends with low weigh-ins.
Bringing their numbers down,
And trying to chase those pounds away.
And we’ll all be okay.
We not big like when we were buffeting.
We on a great journey, that’s what I’m sayin’.
Oh, we’ve got friends with low weigh-ins.

  15. I just added some Garth Brooks tunes to my workout playlist, so this hits home with me.

    I think this might be the first time commenting here. Or second. I don't know. Anyway, hi.

  16. Well,
    I Sir, am honored to be forever included in this well written parody. You really should think about recording an album of weight loss parodies. You've written enough to fill a double! I'll come over and help you sing 'em. Then offer it for sale on your blog. You would be surprised how many would order! Might be a licensing nightmare...yeah---Uh, forget I said that.

    Great post my friend!

    My best always
    Sean

  17. well Jack.
    It's apparent that I'll never make it into your parodies as I don't have a name that flows off the tongue...so I have resolved to change my name to make it easier for you...
    How's about Orange crush...
    everything rhymes with orange.
    lmao.
    another good parody.
    Now if Garth would just come out of retirement....
    we are nothing in this country without our pop country legends.
