CHORUS

 

Eat your feelings

 

Eat them all away

 

If having trouble dealing

 

Try the combo or buffet

 

When the anxiety mounts

 

Ignore the calorie counts

 

And eat your feelings away.

 

 

VERSE 1

 

I can tell by your frown

 

This life’s got you down

 

Outta work or lonely town?

 

Seems your life is swirlin’ round?

 

It’s time to dry the tears of a clown.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Eat your feelings

 

Eat them all away

 

If having trouble dealing

 

Try the combo or buffet

 

When the anxiety mounts

 

Ignore the calorie counts

 

And eat your feelings away.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

Do the mac and cheese thing

 

That’ll make your tastebuds sing

 

No doubt ice cream is the king

 

Yeah, they call it com-fort food.

 

Because it does so much for your mood.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Eat your feelings

 

Eat them all away

 

If having trouble dealing

 

Try the combo or buffet

 

When the anxiety mounts

 

Ignore the calorie counts

 

And eat your feelings away.

 

 

BRIDGE

 

I know how much it hurts

 

But you gotta stop the crying.

 

Think of all the rich deserts

 

That are out there for the buying.

 

 

So instead of asking:

 

"Won't you tell me, why, oh why?"

 

It’s time you started basking

 

In the smell of sweet apple pie.

 

 

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

 

 

VERSE 3

 

I’m not here to chastise.

 

But you’re out of alibis

 

Gonna help your spirits rise.

 

Let’s get out and exercise

 

For starters just say no to the fries…Nawwwww,

 

 

CHORUS

 

Eat your feelings

 

Eat them all away

 

If having trouble dealing

 

Try the combo or buffet

 

When the anxiety mounts

 

Ignore the calorie counts

 

And eat your feelings away.

 

 

VERSE 4  (Very, very optional)

 

Try the Golden Stock-Yard               [Note:  aka The Golden Corral]

 

Cannot go, cause you’re barred?!?

 

Thought it had to be a gag.

 

When they nixed the doggie bag

 

Had to be shown the door by a guard.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Eat your feelings

 

Eat them all away

 

If having trouble dealing

 

Try the combo or buffet

 

When the anxiety mounts

 

Ignore the calorie counts

 

And eat your feelings away.
