I needed to get smaller or so I thought
So, rather stupidly: diet jelly was all I ate
And my body got smaller – it’s true
But alas my weight, it continued to grate.
And soon those kilos I’d lost found me again

I needed to get skinnier or so I thought
Aha, I’ll jog in a plastic suit decided I
And my body got smaller – it’s true
But life wasn’t all the better, I wondered why
And soon those pounds came back plus a few extra

I needed to lose some fat or so I thought
Milkshakes will do it, I know they will
And my body got smaller – it’s true
But still life felt like an uphill
And soon what I’d lost was back yet again- plus more

I needed to get slim or so I thought
So I signed up for a weight loss program
And my body got smaller – it’s true
But still my problems didn’t go away – damn!
And all too soon those pounds caught me again

I needed to trim down or so I thought
But I’d tried the Scarsdale and ga-zillion others too
And my body had only got BIGGER – it’s true
So what to, what to, what to do?
Coz here’s the secret – diets don’t work!

I needed something different, so I knew….
Aha…I need to shrink my dieting
That’s when I found, a new inner peace
And yay…my life took on a new lease
Soon those joyous feelings I’d lost found me again
Soon those magical moments came back plus a few extra
Soon the life I’d lost to dieting caught up with me all over again.
