Jelly bellies and Thunder Thighs

Pizza coke beer and chips
We really love them all to bits
Pringles, oreos on lemon cake tart
This is where I think I'll start

Choc chip brownies in chocolate sauce
There really is no time for pause
Food lava flows into the belly
Isn't life grand in front of the telly?

Cellulite schmellulite beneath that orange peel look
Our plus sized thighs says every man we can hook
Rolls upon folds and skin on skin
Oh look at that! Mousse comes in a tin!

Scratch scratch scratch, itch itch itch
Wedgies are now the only hitch
Chafe chafe chafe, rub rub rub
We need more cream, and by the tub!

Huff and puff, moan and groan
Snap! Breaks the new wooden chair
On our back beading moustache sweat
A beached whale with a wild eyed stare

Heave and ho, roll and twist, rising from the cold hard slab
Buckled knees and twisted joints and lots of bleeding scabs
The summit is reached, the mountain climbed
Towers a force of nature un-resigned

With trembling lips and convulsing hips
And thrills running down to the fingertips
For on the table sits a Roly-poly pie
And we think it is time for a Roly-poly high
