FAT

lyrics by "Weird Al" Yankovic
music by Michael Jackson (parody of
"Bad")


Your butt is wide ... well, mine is too
Just watch your mouth ... or I'll sit on you
The word is out ... better treat me right
'Cause I'm the king ... of cellulite
Ham on, ham on, ham on whole wheat ... all right
My zippers bust ... my buckles break
I'm too much man ... for you to take
The pavement cracks ... when I fall down
I've got more chins ... than Chinatown

Well, I've never used a phone booth
And I've never seen my toes
When I'm goin' to the movies
I take up seven rows ...

Because I'm fat, I'm fat - come on
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat - you know it
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat - come on, you know
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
Don'tcha call me pudgy, portly or stout
Just tell me once again ... who's fat?

When I walk out ... to get my mail
It measures on ... the Richter scale
Down at the beach ... I'm a lucky man
I'm the only one ... who gets a tan
If I have one more ... pie la mode
I'm gonna need ... my own zip code

When you're only having seconds
I'm having twenty-thirds
When I go to get my shoes shined
I gotta take their word ...

Because I'm fat, I'm fat - come on
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat - you know it
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat - you know it, you know
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
And my shadow weighs forty-two pounds
Let me tell you once again, who's fat ...

If you see me comin' your way
Better give me plenty space
If I tell you that I'm hungry
Then won't you feed my face ...

Because I'm fat, I'm fat - come on
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat - you know it
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat - you know it, you know
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
Woo! Woo! Woo!
(When I sit around the house, I really sit around the house)

You know I'm fat, I'm fat - come on
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
You know I'm fat, I'm fat - you know it
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
You know, you know, you know - come on
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
And you know all by myself I'm a crowd
Lemme tell you (once again ... )

You know I'm huge - I'm fat - you know it
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
You know I'm fat - you know - hoo!
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
You know I'm fat - I'm fat - you know it, you know
(Fat fat - really, really fat)
And the whole world knows I'm fat and I'm proud
Just tell me once again ... who's fat?
