Hey Fat Man

Hey Fat Man

A stranger asked me…"hey fat man, why are you so fat"
That's like saying "hey black man, why are you so black"
For in my country tis' of thee, we’ve seen the same type of hardships
Hatred and discrimination based only on physical, discarded…
From the rest of our society for reasons that we can't control
You probably think I eat all day pressing on remote controls
But the truth is that sometimes I wish I could remote my soul
While living outside my own flesh dig myself out this hopeless hole
All my life I thought I could do anything, but I can’t
All I wanted at Six Flags was to fly on that Superman
Yo' high metabolism having' ass probably take that for granted
But I was in that seat begging and squeezing…
"One more click" I COULDN'T STAND IT!

In America today, WE'RE the most discriminated
The fat, obese or overweight, whatever you want to name it
Know your facts, before you speak-and please don't be a "weight-ist"
Close your eyes and look at me, feel my spirit through my language
Just because I'm overweight doesn't mean I eat a lot of food…
Yo' dumb ass didn't know skinny folks have "FAT" problems too
High cholesterol, blood pressure, danger of heart attack
Your physical appearance doesn't always state the real facts
You can eat anything, not gain a pound with no exercise, it kills me
But every time I eat one french fry, you make me feel guilty!
Asking me "Hey fat man, why are you so fat" ….Fuck You BITCH!
I ain't really fat, but I am big boned-ed
