"Roly Poly" as written by and Rose....
Roly Poly eatin' corn and taters
He's hungry every minute of the day
Roly Poly gnawin' all the biscuit
As long as he can chew it it's okay

He can eat an apple pie
Before a cat can wake his eye
He likes everything from a soup to hay
Roly Poly daddy's little fatty
I'll bet he's gonna be a man someday

Roly Poly scrambled eggs for breakfast
Had bread and jelly twenty times a day
Roly Poly will eat a hardy dinner
It takes lotta strength to run and play

Well he bowls up weeds and he does the chores
He runs both ways to all the stores
He works up an appetite that way
Roly Poly daddy's little fatty
I'll bet he's gonna be a man someday

Roly Poly eatin' corn and taters
He's hungry every minute of the day
Roly Poly gnawin' all the biscuit
And as long as he can chew it it's okay

He can eat an apple pie never even bat his eye
He likes everything from a soup to hay
Roly Poly daddy's little fatty
I'll bet he's gonna be a man someday

    General CommentFine to make fun of people providing they don't mind it, but I doubt the man who this song is about was all too happy about it (when his friends were through with their love). We live in a society that judges people by their outer packaging...their body size and shape; their hair and makeup; their youth; their status; the amount of money in their bank account or the type of car they drive. It takes some of us years to understand that none of that means squat sh*t. And the funny thing is that those who profess to be non-superficial; accepting; tolerant; and inclusive are often the ones who judge people by their exteriors and judge themselves by those on their arms. I'm guessin' they often miss out on something or someone spectacular. As for the song, I like the original, although I still doubt the artist's "friend" really found it all that charming. I think I'll stick with songs about plastic, shiny people...

    General Comment"Daddy's little fatty." I used to hear 'What man would ever want you', so I suppose Roly Poly didn't have it too bad afterall:) Fun song. Definitely southern.

    General CommentThis is my song now, but that's OK. It's a fun song and I am a fun person. I shall know that when I do find someone I wish to be with for a very long time, s/he will love me for me...all of me, regardless of my outter wrapper. Having a secure wo/man of quality isn't a bad thing. And when I'm on top of my game again, how wonderful it will be to know that I was desired and loved when all my warts were showing. Looks/weight is what separates those who aren't superficial from those who are...gotta think positive when it comes to the issue.I love the song because it was not meant by the singer as an insult; it was joshing around between guys, and guys usually handle 'truths' much differently/better than females. Here's to all the wo/men out there who truly love and also who lust after those who society thinks should hide away in the book due to appearing gross and disgusting.
