Ma chere Fatemoiselle,
It is with deepest pride
And greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight.
And now we invite you to relax,
Let us pull up a chair as the dining room proudly presents -
your second dinner!
All your foodstuff cooked in grease.
Tie your napkin ‘round your neck, cherie.
Let the eating never cease.
Soup du jour,
Hot hors d'oeuvres’ll
Help you broaden out those curves.
Try the grey stuff
Who cares that it’s not nutritious?
Hide the scale, let out your pants.
Grow as large as all of France.
Eat like me and you will never look your best.
Order the whole menu,
Eat it all and then you’ll
Jackiere and Chorus:
Maybe not .
Who can say?
You have a say in what you weigh!
It’s time to batten down the hatches
And just leap into the fray.
You're not alone ,
We’re right there, too.
And we’ll take each step with you.
No more excuses or complaining .
Let’s put an end to all this gaining.
I tell jokes! I run miles
With my fellow pedometer-philes.
And it all gets good results
That you can bet
Come on and work your ass.
We’re gonna lose some mass.
Not be obese.
If you're stressed
It’s exercise that I suggest.
Not be obese!
Life is so unnerving ,
When your curves are over-curving.
Feel like spit, pants don’t fit when they’re put on.
But, the good old days are still before us...
We can turn from a fat duckling into a swan.
For years we’ve just been stalling,
Eating habits were appalling.
Needing exercise, a chance to move our bods!
If we keep spending all our time being
Flabby, fat and lazy
We’ll soon be dead as Patrick Swayze!
Don’t be obese! Be obese!
Give your life a brand new lease.
When your body’s not so shoddy then you’ll
Finally know some peace.
With each meal, each workout
You’ll be leaving little doubt
That your healthy future’s showing .
There’s no telling where you’re going!
Pounds go down, one by one
'Til you shout, "Enough! I'm done!"
And we all shout “Congrats” at your big decrease .
So let’s all get fit together ,
Do our best to never ever
Be obese !
Don’t be obese!
