fat as i am lyrics – bette midler

fat as i am.
who wants to see a diva fat as i am?
i get mistaken now for lainie kazan.
how is it that i’m fat as i am?

fat as i am.
the camera’s gonna add a ton to my can.
this is the way they say godzilla began.
how did i get as fat as i am?

“try it again.”
all of my friends say i should diet again;
that all my fans are gonna riot again.
“look what happened to liz.”

all of my sins
are not as numerous as . . . all of my chins!
i could audition for the doublemint twins.
no one in the biz is as fat as i is.

ah, but what’s a career
when you put it next to knockwurst and beer?
they could park a dc10 on my rear.
god knows i got the gas!

there goes the chair.
but to tell the truth, i’m too fat to care!
i ate a meatball off the floor right over there.
ah, you don’t give a d*mn
when you’re fat as i am!
