Lyrics

Too Fat To Fly – Patrick Evans (with Sofia Evans)

Intro
Daddy,
Yep,
I know what happens when you die.
Really? What’s that?
Well, when you die you don’t just lie there like this………
You actually turn into an angel or a shepherd.
Really?
Seriously, for real Dad…
Girls become angels and boys become shepherds, well, some boys can become angels if they’ve been really good.
But Daddy,
Yes,
You’ll have to be a shepherd..
Why?
Because you’re too fat to fly…..

Song
You’re too fat to fly,
You’re far too fat to fly,
You’ll have to be a shepherd, not an angel when you die
I guess you’ll be alright
Watching your flocks by night
Just watching angels flap about
Coz you’re too fat to fly

The way things look right now
I really can’t see how
How old St Pete will find some wings
To lift you off the ground

I know you like your fries
And cream on apple pies
But if you don’t listen to me
With sheep you’ll spend eternity



Because you are so round
You’ll tumble to the ground
No pair of wings on Heaven or earth
Can lift that mighty girth
I guess you’ll be alright
Watching your flocks by night
Just watching angels flap about
Coz you’re too fat to fly


Bridge
When I was a boy I had a hero
And he flew south, north, east and west
You’d think a flying ace could be an angel
But even Biggles would have failed this test.


Coz you’re too fat to fly,
You’re far too fat to fly,
You’ll have to be a shepherd, not an angel when you die
I guess you’ll be alright
Watching your flocks by night
You’ll have to have that bible look,
A stripy cloak and shepherd’s crook,
Herding sheep by a babbling brook,
Coz you’re too fat to fly
