Livin' Large

For the love of all
Holy mackerel
I can't believe
My eyes

One in four
One in four!
Are livin' large

I read today
In a newspaper
While I sat
Highlighter
Hair wrapped
In cellophane

One in four
One in four!
Are livin' large

Who's to blame?
Society and its
Standards of living?
The industry that
Promotes chub
A tub tub?

Awww...
Isn't she cute
With all that flub

Can we handle
The excessive rise
Of glucose
In the rivers of blood?

Or the hyper mania
As pressures rise
Rise, rise, rise
While we're downing fries?

Surrounded by
Evidence
We can't deny
We murder each
Other, by the
Examples we teach

One in four
One in four!
Are livin' large

Livin' large
As large as a barge
In a country
Of poverty

How did we
Get so fat?
