Don't want to be a fat man, people would think that I was just good fun.
Would rather be a thin man, I am so glad to go on being one.
Too much to carry around with you,no chance of finding a woman who
will love you in the morning and all the night time too.
Don't want to be a fat man, have not the patience to ignore all that.
Hate to admit to myself half of my problems came from being fat.
Won't waste my time feeling sorry for him, I seen the other side to being thin.
Roll us both down a mountain and I'm sure the fat man would win.
