Calorie Blues

Oh, Lord, why did you make so many calories?
Oh, Lord, why did you make so many calories?
Ever since Adam ate the apple,
Temptation has been followin' me.

Well, if I'm not supposed to eat it,
Why did you make it taste so good?
I've tried every kind of diet,
But I'm still in love with food.

Oh, Sweet Temptation, won't you have mercy on me?
Oh, Sweet Temptation, won't you have mercy on me?
Lord, keep my feet from strayin'
Down the street with the bakery.

Summerimte, and the eating is healthy.
Red ripe tomatoes on top of salad greens.
Oh, I was doing so great,
Till that blue cheese dressing go ahold of me.

Choc'late mousse, pizza pie, brownies, cookies, Get away from me.
Choc'late mousse, pizza pie, brownies, cookies, Get away from me.
Cause I look like the Pillsbury doughboy,
And my thighs are like a giant redwood tree.

Oh, Lord, why did you make so many calories?
Oh, Lord, why did you make so many calories?
Ever since Adam ate the apple,
Temptation has been followin' me.
