Dyin’ To Be Thin

From the album Other Songs

Cho: Dyin to be thin!  Dyin to be thin!

Evrybody gonna love me when I'm nothin but skin!

Fat, fat, fat!  Good-bye fat!

Im gonna look yummy when my tummy is flat!

 

I wanna look like, the lady in the ad!

With a little tiny hiney, gonna be so bad!

Evrybody gonna love my skinny thighs,

And my big, sexy, sunken eyes!

 

Cho: Tough, tough, tough!  Gotta get tough!

So I punish my body but its never enough!

Dyin to be thin!  Dyin to be thin!

Evrybody gonna love me when I'm a skeleton!

(She's a maniac, maniac!)

 

I wanna be young and I wanna be sweet

And I wanna be special, so I dont wanna eat!

Im going on a fast!  Im goin on a diet!

An you cant stop me, so you better not try it!

(You look simply marvelous Darling!)

 

Cho: Sweat, sweat, sweat!  Gotta lotta sweat!

I lost a couple pounds, but I aint there yet!

Weight, weight, weight, gotta lose weight!

I starve myself, and then I celebrate

 

Drinkin diet root beer, eatin diet meat,

Lickin diet ice cream, cool and sweet!

Suckin diet candy, but I gotta stay thin, so,

I throw it all out, and start my diet again!

 

Cho: Sick, sick, sick!  I'm a little bit sick!

But when I'm boney, no baloney, hey!! I'm gonna look slick!

Dyin to be thin!  Dyin to be thin!

Evrybody gonna love me when Im nothin but skin!

(Im gonna be beautiful and happy and successful, if it's the LAST thing I do!)

Dyin to be thin!  Dyin!! Dyin! Dyin! Dyin!
