lyrics

Rice Belly

I've got bad eyesight
And I wear it like a pro
But if somebody asks me why
I really have no reply
My hair is thinning
Due to years of constant stress
But if somebody tells me so
I'll tell them where they can go

I know from what I have seen
That I'm no glamorous queen
On the cover of your magazine
There's no point to being this mean

I've got a rice belly
You can call it what you want, it don't matter what you got!
I've got a rice belly
Run another lap, girl, all that rice is getting to you!
I've got a rice belly
You can call it what you want, it don't matter what you got!
I've got a rice belly
I'm not proud of it, but I'll make do
Thank you

You've got a mirror?
It turns out, I have one too!
If there's a flaw that you want to show
Don't you think I already know?
I am not perfect, but I do the best I can
And I do it all on my own
So leave me the hell alone

My clothes look like they could rot
In my shoes you wouldn't get caught
Now as you sit and you scoff
Let me tell you what else I've got

I've got a rice belly
You can call it what you want, it don't matter what you got!
I've got a rice belly
Run another lap, girl, all that rice is getting to you!
I've got a rice belly
You can call it what you want, it don't matter what you got!
I've got a rice belly
I'm not proud of it, but I'll make do
Thank you

Get yourself out of here with all your hate
I'd run a marathon if you'd go away
Get yourself out of here with all your hate
I'd join a gym now if you'd just -
GO! GO! GO!

I've got a rice belly
Osuki na you ni yobaretemo ii yo!
I've got a rice belly
Debu debu kobuta, chotto undou sureba?
I've got a rice belly
You can call it what you want, it don't matter what you got!
I've got a rice belly
I'm not proud of it, but I'll make do
Thank you
