When you're poor and fat you think about the strangest things...

The Poorboy by Mike Hebel
TTTO - The Boxer by Paul Simon
--------

I'm just a poorboy
In the Midwest seldom sold
Unpopular with the kiddies
With a mouthful of the burgers such as sliders
With fries I'm best
Still a diet coke I'm eaten with
To disregard the risk

Starting with chuck roast in the crockpot
A real one not a toy
In the corner of the counter
To cook throughout the day set on low it is
Bubbling through and through
Until the meat falls from the bone
Leaving the juicy meat ever to be known

Fries fries fries!
Fries!
Fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries!
Fries fries fries!
Fries!
Fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries!

Served on a hoagie roll
I am brought to the table
But without the napkins
Just a roll of paper towels such as Bounty sheets
I have to say though they absorb the
Greasy mess quite well

Fries fries fries!
Fries!
Fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries!
Fries fries fries!
Fries!
Fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries!

On the scale leans a fatman
With a poorboy in his hand
And he scowls at the numbers
Of every scale he's stepped on
Or visited at the doctor's
Till he passes on the blame
"I am healthy! I am healthy!"
But the poorboy still remains
Still remains

Fries fries fries!
Fries!
Fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries!
Fries fries fries!
Fries!
Fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries fries!
