Don't want to be a fat man
People would say that I was just good fun
I would rather be a thin man
I am so glad to go on being one, yeah

Too much to carry around with you
And no chance of finding a woman who
Will love you in the morning and all the day time too

I don't want to be a fat man
I have not the patience to ignore all that
I hate to admit to myself
Half of my problems came from being fat

Won't waste my time feeling sorry for him
I've seen the other side to being thin
Roll us both down a mountain and I'm sure the fat man win
