DARE TO BE FAT

by David Greenlee, Foster McKenzie III, and Ernie Lancaster


     Dare to be fat!
     Fat is where it's at!
     Dare to be fat!
     Fat is where it's at!
     Having a ball
     With cholesterol
     C'mon y'all -
     Fat don't matter at all!

I saw a fat girl in my neighborhood
Good God almighty, she was lookin' good
Tight ski pants, cashmire sweater
Root Boy can't think of nuthin', nuthin' better.

     Dare to be fat!
     Fat is where it's at!
     Dare to be fat!
     Fat is where it's at!
     Having a ball
     With cholesterol
     C'mon y'all -
     Fat don't matter at all!

She's got a shape that makes me drool
Lord, I'm just a fat girl's fool
She weighs in at two-oh-two
That's fine with me, I'm portly, too

     Dare to be fat!
     Fat is where it's at!
     Dare to be fat!
     Fat is where it's at!
     Having a ball
     With cholesterol
     C'mon y'all -
     Fat don't matter at all!

[spoken]
Man, those fat girls got me eating out of their hands
They got me playin' the fool
They got me doin' anything they want me to
They got me wrapped out around their pudgy fingers
I don't know how to get out of this syndrome I'm in


Me and my woman got it made
Eatin' in, eatin' out, at least six times a day
Breakfast and brunch, lunch and dinner, too
Plus a few meals that might be new to you

[spoken]
C'mon, c'mon, you fat girls
Give Root Boy some play
Fellow might not be noticin' you, but
I dig you, I dig you
I'm a fat man, too
I dig you fat girls
You're foxy, you're foxy
You got
[put on a pedestal?]
Highly elevated
Back in Medieval times
You're Rubenesque, baby
