lyrics

SHED OFF THE POUNDS
(Words and music by Herb Garden)

Dieticians tell them news
People go on five-mile runs
Occupation all devout
Cut out the butties fried and nice

Got to shed off the pounds - it's aesthetic propaganda
Got to shed off the pounds - to make your life better
Got to shed off the pounds - it's that Western occupation
Got to shed off the pounds - it's aesthetic propaganda

Higher-seller work-out tapes
Vanity has gonne to seed
More subscribers part with cash
Sod the Third World, let's look flash

Got to shed off the pounds - it's aesthetic propaganda
Got to shed off the pounds - to make your life better
Got to shed off the pounds - it's that Western occupation
Got to shed off the pounds - it's aesthetic propaganda

Work it out!!
[pant, pant, gasp!]
Oyez, work it out for yourselves!
Oyez
Work it ouuuuuuuutt!!

Surgeons face-lift the grotesque
Cosmetic values grow and grow
Got to look your Sunday best
(Not yourself-
Be someone else!)

Got to shed off the pounds...

WORK IT OUT!

We've remastered 1989's 'Eponymous' EP, often known as Bulldozer Jones, and all the tracks that led to Warner's DNA mini-LP. We've loads to reveal!
