lyrics

A big fat house a big fat car a big fat swollen shopping cart and people came from near and far because he had a big fat heart.
He had a big fat bank account so they would never do without the finer things that life could give, but he was never positive that he was fitting in.

Them you me we just wanna be loved, birds bees trees we just wanna be loved, him she me we just wanna be loved -

That boy was born to be fat - he was born to be fat and everybody knows you can't take that away
Born to be fat - he was born to be fat not everybody knows your worth's not what you weigh.

There was a girl he thought he knew who told him he looked trim and cool, she also told some porkies to the other big fat boys she knew, it's more than a man can chew...

Them you me we just wanna be loved, birds bees trees we just wanna be loved, him she me we just wanna be loved -

'Cause he was born to be fat - he was born to be fat and everybody knows you can't take that away
Born to be fat - he was born to be fat and everybody knows it won't just drop away.

Everything he'd tried had failed, every potion ever made, and the more he tried the more it stayed...
The more that he tried seemed the more he craved, the more that he tried seemed the worse she behaved, the sadder he was then the more they made him pay.

(then the more that he tried
then the more that he craved
then the more he failed to avoid it

and the more that he tried
then the more that she strayed
then she swore then she misbehaved with his buddies

and the more that he tried
then the more that he failed
then the more that they made him give
the more thy made him pay)

Born to be fat - he was born to be fat and everybody knows he'll never fade away
Born to be fat - he was born to be fat not everybody knows you can't take that away

Born to be fat - he was born to be fat and everybody knows that curves will have their day
Everyones born to be fat - we are born to be fat not everybody knows your worth's not what you weigh.
