Since you started working in this office
my snack habit has started to escalate
God .. do you never ever stop eating?
Shuffle shuffle crinkle crackle
sweet wrappers, biscuits and cake
that ruddy drawer keeps opening and shutting
So I take another trip to the snack machine.
You take the bloody biscuit you do mate
you tell me solemnly of the diagnosis
it's diabetes apparently and you can't imagine
how such a thing could have befallen you
as you eat so much salad and fruit these days
I walk over silently and open the drawer
we gaze down at the evidence. 'nuff said.
