Fatty Bum Bum


How did I end up in this state?
I'm always fighting with my weight,
I'd like to put it down to fate,
but that ain't honest!

I know for sure what I do wrong,
I've known the truth all along,
but I always sing a different song,
and that ain't honest!

I've tried to blame my family,
for passing the fat gene down to me,
and making me a big fat'B',
but that ain't honest.

So now I'm gonna face the fact,
I have to make me a slimming pact,
and with exercise I must react.
Now, that is honest!

    I have to admit, I really cheesed off the doctor when in hospital recently. They suspected (Wrongly - Hooray!) something unnecessarily unpleasant.
    Have you lost any weight recently, Mr O'Neill?
    No idea, I never weigh myself.
    Ooh! she said.
    Go to the Phillipines. I said.
    End smile. (Report) Reply
