Lo salt diet

Why won't the animals dance?
Seems once upon a time they could prance
Somehow, it's my entire fault
As I struggle with my diet
Trying to reduce the salt
Once the animals were happy
When I was small
Maybe now I’m above it all
I’m kicking like a horse in a stall
The hi salt habit is hard to break
All I want is a good steak
This crazy diet will ruin it all
I’ll gain all the weight back and more
After all
The answers not in a pill
Why won't the animals dance still?
This diet's no fun I can't eat what I used to
I guess I never will
Just too old and wore out
I just saw animals dance
I begin to shout
Animals might dance
However, it might be strange
Not as strange
As the food on my range
Tell that doctor he's fired
The animals won't dance
I can’t, I 'm still too tired
If you find a way to lose weight, keep the pressure down
Don’t tell anyone
Because the secret's like the animals, they're all over the town
