It’s hard to resist deserts
I try until it hurts
Whenever my sister comes in town
my willpower goes way down

We always go out to eat
it’s hard to resist a treat
no matter how many tries
it may take I always fall for brownie cake

My willpower usually dies
I guess that’s the point
of exercise

I fight, and fight
but in the end, I have to try it
I guess when she leaves
I’ll go back on my diet
