New Year Resolve

 New Year Resolve

 

It's early in the New Year

And it's time to decide

Whether to get into shape

Or lie back and hide.

 

Try to lose some festive weight

That's started on my belly

Or eat and drink some more

And watch some more telly.

 

I've got to really decide

To make a strong resolution

To lose weight and get fit

Seems the only solution.

 

Ideally i could work out

And become really fit

Or just have my clothes

Be a really comfortable fit.

 

I want to do some workouts

And then to do them faster

I don't want to be stuck in the past

Or even stuck in the pasta.

 

If i can get myself organized

Maybe sign on at a gym

Get myself into better shape

Even if i don't get really slim.

 

So, i could go and exercise

Then take a well earned shower

But only if i do all this

And show enough willpower.

This is just brilliant, Michael! Your rhyme, rhythm and flow are spot on. It has the ring of honesty and authenticity delivered with a semi-light hearted voice. Love it! Don't get stuck in the past OR the pasta!
