Wenn Schon--Denn Schon!
"Wenn Schon--Denn Schon" (German for "If it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing!)
"Wenn Schon--Denn Schon"...my new outlook on life.
For if it's worth doing, just put that effort into Warp 5.
My weight loss and life changes have gone into hyper-drive,
and Captain Picard just ordered "phaser batteries released!"
(Navy term on a battleship to fire the main gun turrets, FYI))
I'm now off the market--and Pam is now Pam Bierstedt-Johnston--
married common-law style, with the rings coming soon.
I found the woman of my heart--and lost 145 lbs of weight, to boot.
My heart and soul are healing now, and my body is not far behind.
Everybody here is happy for me--plus I'm smiling inside now.
When I walk now, I go farther and wheeze far much less.
A hot shower is a treat after every after-meal stroll,
and the smell of clean clothes is the smell of success!
I'h happy in love--FINALLY--and my body is lighter and buff.
No Six-Pack Abs...I don't need such frivolity anyway.
I look for to growing old with the woman I love so very much.
Took the bull by the horns--and now I have become the bull!
She's my Alpha She-Wolf--I'm her Teddy Bear Project...
and the both of us look forward to the future God has planned.
So, understand--the "Wasted Years" were not really a waste,
especially when God smiled, and Fate took a hand!
