  • Song Lyrics:
    I'm called Little Butterball,
    Dear Little Butterball,
    'Though I could never tell why.

    My calories mount.
    My cholesterol count
    Is as high as an elephant's eye.

    They told me to diet.
    I promised I'd try it,
    Yet somehow my weight would not budge.

    Each Metrecal cookie
    To me tasted ookie,
    So I covered it with hot fudge.

    I ate watercresses,
    And other such messes,
    And pushed all my favorites aside.

    I said to the caterers,
    "No more mashed potaterers,
    Just baked, and hash browned, and french fried."

    I sing this sad song
    'Cause my diet went wrong,
    'Though I honestly tried to pay heed.

    I don't care how high
    Is an elephant's eye,
    But an elephant's rear I don't need!
