Again here we go
I’m in the same place
I’ve been before every time I try to escape
These idiosyncracies

And I move slow
I don't want to waste my speed
I need to be ready for my entry
To society

Well, pretty baby
Time now to take your seat
See the girls coming in now one two three

Well, she’s too broad
And the second is too fancy
Try the third,
She says her name is Nancy

She seems like she’d be a good time!

Here she goes
Holding out her hand
To be filled with an empty promise again
All she has can be had for the price of a mojito

And this is the game
That I don’t care to play
I’ve tried many times
But I’m not built that way

‘Cause everything about me curves
And it won’t go straight
I'm done revising my body weight
I don’t care what these girls say.
‘cause any place
that they go
they’re looking for a man
who can show
them the road
take them into wonderland

i won’t be swayed
nobody’s gonna carry me away...
i’m too heavy!
oh could it be
the prince wants to sweep me off my...
please... you can’t lift me!

that’s sweet
but i’m not your queen
I’m too heavy

I’m just trying
to state my P.O.V.
you can go with the flow
but only ‘til you sink
yeah, and all i know
is what i’m told
and what i’m shown
on the TV shows
and all I see.....

is any place that they go
they’re looking for a man
to take control

well I won’t be swayed
can’t carry me away

‘cause I’m not afraid
to be too heavy
I’m in the way
‘cause I’m too heavy
I’m not a blonde
and I’m too heavy
I’m no Bond girl,
I’m too heavy, Baby!
