Anorexia
Parody of: "Come Original" by 311 (N. Hexum, J. Mahoney, D. Martinez, C. Sexton, A. Wills)
New lyrics by: John Holland
Author's Note: And the moral is: ...

You got the
You got the
You got the

CHORUS:
Anorexia, you got the anorexia
You are just skin and bones, anorexia
You got the anorexia, you got the anorexia
You are just skin and bones
But why

Anorexia, it ain't nothin' strange
Least not when you trottin' down the runway
Showin' off the skinny, skimpy fashions and styles
Maxim Magazine's paycheck runnin' for miles

REPEAT CHORUS

Maybe at first it seems really great and
Every time you have a big meal you only taste and
Down to size 1, just five more pounds
Sooner or later, you know you're gettin' queasy

You look into the mirror and you think you're fat
When actually you weight fifty pounds more than your cat
Down to 80, you be so sexy, or so you read
Eventually it gets so bad it messes your head
'Cuz when candy bars are flashing in your mind
Your brain sees it as the equal of cyanide
Not to mention all the stress and the tension
And you have to look like you're on heroin

REPEAT CHORUS

Techno beats playin' on the runway and
Gaudy strut in silky gowns and
Deadly feeling comes over you and then
Starting to feel faint, you know you're gettin' queasy

This is not a person it's a stick figure
How you gonna cope if your mind has gone berzerk
And my hand can fit 'round your biceps eas'ly
Inflicting pain upon you, sorry...
This message brought to you by the Dead Models Society
Gain some weight and give fashion a little variety
And Lane Bryant, her models are cool, they ain't chumps
They're beautiful as you and they're festively plump

Everyone has said you are an anorexic girl
Put your hand up in your mouth and get ready to hurl
You think you have to be a bulimic chick
So why don't you go ahead and take your pick
Normal healthy life, or anorexia
Next thing you know, cardiac arrest
Badly weakened heart that's
Putting up a protest
Skeletal figure may look good in a 'zine
But this is the emergency room

Anorexia, you got the anorexia
You are just skin and bones, anorexia
You got the anorexia, you got the anorexia
Face has them pale tones, anorexia
You got the anorexia, you got the anorexia
Like all those model clones, anorexia
You got the anorexia, you got the anorexia
Under a gravestone

Anorexia-ia-ia....
