My body is big my body is wide
The others flaunt but under layers I hide
My sweater is saggy and my car is cheap
Maybe because I’m always spending on sugary peeps
I try to stop eating but the food likes my mouth
Then why does the food always want to go south?
South to the loo? Oh no, you are mistaken
South just enough that my zipper is breaking!
The others sweat after running the mile
But I leak gallons after cracking a smile!
Don’t even get me started on the size of my face
(Then again it’s only a tenth of my waist)
Yesterday a little boy asked me if I ate meat
According to him my belly looked like it had engulfed
…Six elephant feet
I told him no little one; I only eat veggies (a lie)
When I got home I swallowed a whole chocolate pie
I wish I was skinny I honestly do
But the food needs me, it needs me to chew
I’m just being nice, I can’t say no to the food
Because frankly, my mother taught me not to be rude!
After high school I am moving to Texas
I have heard that there, you don’t need to drive a Lexus
A movie told me that in Texas, everything’s bigger
Even the size of your boss’s trigger
It’s a pretty hot place; I’ll have to burn my old sweater
But I sure can’t wait, ‘cause the bigger the better!
