Here's a summer anthem you can sing all year long!  It's my story, sad but true...

Lyrics

Last summer I was skinny, I wore a blue bikini

Got lazy, made bad choices, started listening to inner voices saying,

“Go ahead and stuff your face.” Now something’s growing around my waist

Looks like it’s gonna be a...

 

Tankini Summer

The girls on the beach all look like Twiggy

Tankini Summer

I’m covered up, looking like Miss Piggy

It’s such a bummer, but soon I’ll get on track

With a few more crunches and a lot less snacks,

Next summer that bikini’s coming back

 

Friends who’ve gained weight and kept it say they’ve learned to accept it

As part of getting older, roll their eyes and shrug their shoulders but I

But who am I to judge and what’s the point of even caring?

‘Cause we love the sun, the sea, the shore

So why can’t we love ourselves the way we are

Even if it means we have a...

 

Tankini Summer

‘Cause nobody really looks like Twiggy

Tankini Summer

And who’s more fabulous than Miss Piggy?

It’s such a bummer to fall into that trap

With a few more crunches and a lot less snacks,

Next summer that bikini’s coming back
