It's the end of 2008 and what do you do
Listen and I will tell you a thing or two
You must clean out of your closet those clothes that don't fit
Exercise and dieting just did not help a bit
The gown you tried on and it just would not fasten
You have tried all year but it just did not happen
So let's face it, don't sweat it, don't frown or fret
If you are happy and healthy that's the best it can get.
Call up the goodwill or a charity drive
Unload your outgrown things and be glad you are alive
Each day is precious, give out a big cheer
'Cause 2009 will be a wonderful New Year!
