From the recording Consciousness
I'm gonna run in a marathon, next summer in June
Cuz if I run in a marathon, that'll show I'm big and strong
No I'm not lazy, fat or old...I've still got a heart of gold
There's a store where I can run and buy some food to get it done
Carb load! Bring on the bread ...Carb load! Bring on the red
Potatoes and butter, that is the plan
Cuz I'm gonna be a marathon man
I'm gonna run in a marathon, T'show my kids I'm great
And when I've run that twenty six, I'll just do "point two" for kicks
And when I finish they'll be glad, that I'm no sedentary dad
So I'll eat pasta and drink more beer, T' fit into my Nike gear.. .......
Carb load! Bring on the bread.....Carb load! Bring on the red
Potatoes and gravy, that is the plan
Cuz I'm gonna be their marathon man!
And when I triumph on marathon day
The triathlon's a whisper away!
I'm gonna run in a marathon, and show'em how it's done
I'm gonna watch those miles drift by
Step back chilluns, and watch gramps fly
And when I cross that finish line, in some kinda grandpa, record time
I won't stop my regimen
Cuz there inside the finish tent
I'll carb load! Bring on the pie!...Carb load! Reubens on rye!
Danish and strudel, carmelized flan!
Yeah I'm gonna be a marathon man
And you know I’m not gonna starve, cuz Ill be loading up on carbs
And when I finish up my crust, That’s when you can eat my dust!
