Lyrics

I stood there and I said to Shari
"I'm so confused inside"
She said there's really no confusion
It's easy to see why
"You're leaving me because I'm heavy
75 pounds overweight
So why don't you just shut up and leave
Go find yourself a more attractive mate"

You don't need to wait til the fat lady sings
You're movin on Movin on
You're movin on, to bigger and worser things

Next week I moved in with Barbara
A model type for sure
The woman glowed with sheer charisma
In those dresses that she wore
Everything was going great
Til we both lost our jobs
We were stuck at home lookin thru the want ads
Frustration crowding out the love that was

You don't need to wait til the fat lady sings
You're movin on Movin on
Movin on, to bigger and worser things

[Bridge]
Yeah, we, turned to food for comfort in these dark days
She dropped her aerobics, I stopped lifting weights
But Barb got her life together as I continued to spiral down
She returned to her slim self
As I Dealt with the pain by trying
To drink, and eat, my way out
As she broke up with me, we said almost in unison-

I don't need to wait til the fat lady sings
I'm moving on Moving on
You're moving on
To bigger and worser things
