LORD, SHRINK MY BODY OR STRETCH MY CLOTHES

As heard on the Good Stuff with Jim Thompson

Lord, shrink my body or stretch my clothes.
I've gained more weight and heaven knows
I've tried on everything I own
And can't believe how much I've grown. Lord, shrink my body or stretch my clothes.
I can't pull up these brand new hose.
Where did I get this extra weight?
Is being fat my awful fate? Lord, shrink my body or stretch my clothes.
I bend and just can't reach my toes.
You know that I'd be filled with glee
If you could melt some pounds off me. Lord, shrink my body or stretch my clothes.
This dress right here is one I chose
To wear to church last Sunday night;
It must have shrunk and I'm a sight Lord, shrink my body or stretch my clothes.
I know the answer, I suppose.
To you my problems I can bring,
But melting FAT is not Your thing. Mariane Holbrook
