Am             G                 F                Em
Do not feed doughnuts to your obese children
Am           G                F                   Em
You will regret it when theyíre in their teens
Am                G                 F                       Em
Maccas might shut them up now that theyíre seven
      F            
But they wonít forgive you, when
Em                                        Am
Theyíre getting picked last for PE
Bm7

Boombalata motherfucker

Have you noticed that your kids are fat?
Am                                          D7
What are you going to do about that?
Am
What are you going to do?

Am                                 D7
So you telling me that your family
Am                    D7
Has a history of obesity
                Am           D7
You got a polycystic ovary
Am                                D7
Itís just the way that God made me

Am             D7   
Itís unlikely, statistically
             Am     
To be a physical thing
               D7
But either way it donít explain why you
               Am
Are in the cue at Burger King

             Am            D7
You can blame it on biology
             Am                    D7
You can blame your physiology
             Am                D7
You can point to genealogy
             Am                 D7
And your social anthropology
           
              Am                       D7
You can say you are an ectomorph
              Am                            D7      
That you just canít get the kilos off
                     Bm7    
Well you can be what you wanna be
                                           E7
But stop feeding that boy KFC

     F                         
He weighs 40 kilos and heís only three
     Bm7                                           E7
He looks like a clean-shaven Pavarotti

F                                     C
Switching to Diet Coke is not the way back

         F                                               C
Your 5 year old princess in her size 14 tutu
G                          D                   E7
Only eats pizza like that because you do
             C      
Will be dead of a heart attack
     G                                      C       G
Before your grandchildren are ten
     C                          
Perhaps youíll consider
    G                                C        G
A cut-back on extra fries then

Am

Am              D7
But Ė and in your case
               Am                 D7
Thereís a reasonably big butt
            Am                               D7
Do you think itís an appropriate treat
                          Am            D7
The all-you-can-eat at Pizza Hut?

                 Am                   D7
Thereís no excuse you silly goose
         Am             D7
For a child with a caboose
          Am                                        D7
Like a moose whoís eaten too much mousse
      Am                          D7
Itís tantamount to child abuse

Kick them off the fucking couch
    Am              D7
Unplug the Playstation
                 Am             D7

Until their jogging shorts fitíem

If they still resist, hitíem
