The Dieter's Song
(to the tune of "Story of Love*")
Copyright © 2012 Kevin Ahern

David Simmons' recording HERE

I love simple, effective rhyming schemes and the original song, "Story of Love" is a classic in this regard. I was reminded of the
song when I heard Paul McCartney's recent recording of it. As is obvious from my collection of songs, I have a "thing" for
nutrition, diet, and exercise. Once I got the rhymes in the first stanza, the song flowed very easily. I'm very proud of some of
the rhymes here - diet / try it / deny it and waistline / baseline / racetime.

You better lose your middle
Run a little
Get yourself fit as a fiddle

You must break a sweat
And you'll truly get

You need to change your diet
Don't deny it
Reducing intake you should try it

Hold off on the cheese
Count the calories,

Whenever there is juicy stuff
You need to ponder on the cost
Cuz just a little is enough
Or else your diet's lost

You wanna move your waistline
To the baseline
Give those legs a bit of racetime

It is worth the sweat
When you truly get

It is worth the sweat
When you truly get

*Sometimes called "Glory of love"
