Hump Day Sing-a-long!


Sing along, January dieters!
WE ARE THE FAT ONES
(to the tune of Queen's "We Are the Champions")

I've cut down carbs
Time after time
Feels like a punishment
Without any crime
And bad diet choices
I've made a few
I consider it a challenge, meal by meal,
And I hope I don't spew

(Yet the diet goes on...and on...and on... and on...)

CHORUS:
We are the fat ones, my friends
Calorie counting till the end
We are the fat ones
Don't hate our big buns
No time for boozin'
No fun for the fat ones...of the world!

I've cleansed my bowels
Clean in-tes-tine
All that went in, came out, with all that goes with it -
I can barely crawl.
Might as well have colonoscopy
Just to have proof
There's a reason I walk so rigidly straight
(I'm not just aloof).

(Yet the diet goes on...and on...and on... and on...)

CHORUS:
We are the fat ones, my friends
Forcing our foodstuffs out the end
We are the fat ones
Don't hate our big buns
No time for boozin'
No fun for the fat ones...of the world!

  1. LOL! Thanks for sharing this. Oh, and I don't mind your son checking out my blog posts, I do have French readers and they do comment in French. Here in Quebec, French is the first language and even though my mother tongue is English I am fluent in French. :) Thanks so much for all your kind comments on my posts, I really appreciate it.

    1. I love your blog, Linda!

      Thank you for giving Gonzo an outlet for translation. We have often spoke of going to Quebec or Montreal, instead of biting the bullet and heading to France to experience the language.

  2. Good morning, dear Cherdo!

    Well done! Your Queen musical parody reminds me of the glory years of Mad Magazine, a publication that included a song parody in many of its issues. I read Mad for years and it helped shape my twisted sense of humor. Did you read Mad? Do you still read it and keep it hidden under the mattress to prevent hubzam and kiddos from finding out?

    Again I salute you for doing such a fine job with this Queen classic.

    Happy Wednesday to you, dear friend Cherdo!

    1. I DID read Mad Magazine and truthfully, I wasn't sure it was still around (please don't attack my blog if you work for Mad Magazine...). My favorite part was when they aimed their humor-gun at pop culture.

      I double salute you, for being Shadytastic.

      Have a great day, S4!

  3. Cherdo, this fits right in with my state of mind at this point of dieting to get off the holiday pounds. I can hang in there for five pounds, but ten would be much better. Great song!

  5. This can be my personal anthem:) I loved this song in high school and now it is in keeping with my very cushioned behind

    1. Every cushioned behind needs a theme song.

  7. I made Fat Bottomed my theme song a long time ago- I can add this Queen remix to my Awesome Me Life Soundtrack

    (I was trying to email you about your kind offer to host me, but I don't think I have your email. Mine is eseckman(at)ymail(dot)com if you wouldn't mind dropping me a line.)

  9. This is fantastic! I've dabbled in some musical parody myself, it was part of my show at the Adelaide Fringe Festival last year.
