We have ways of making you thin!

It’s been brought to our attention that

Our population is too fat,

We’re going to have to deal with it

We can’t be having that.


You all need much more exercise

And you need to eat much less,

But how can we make sure that

You will do what is the best.


There’s something we can do

That will get you all to walk,

We’ll put up the cost of transport

So to use it you will balk.


We’ll put up the cost to own a car

The gas we’ll hammer too,

As long as we are all okay

We won’t worry about you.


And when it comes to diet

Perhaps there’s a way for us to fix

What you’re putting on the table

When there’s money in the mix.


We can mess around with taxes

We can put things out of reach

But don’t be looking to us

To practice what we preach.


We go to all the banquets

And drink the finest wine

And it’s paid for by your taxes --

Don’t worry, you’ll be fine.


We’ll think up a plan of action

To get you back to health

As long as it does not impact

On the countries wealth.


Don’t look at us all personally,

We might not look so fit,

But we are in your government

Just you remember it.


The studies are all pointing to

A national exercise plan

So take advantage of your freedom

Cause we’ll make you if we can.


A morning range of exercise,

A diet of bread and water,

If we put you on it long enough

You’ll weigh more what you oughta.
