Lyrics to our Musicals

How Do You Like Dot Now?
Words by Al, and sung to the tune of "How Do You Like Me Now?"

Yeah she was always the heavy one, the one where they poked the fun,
Sometimes she just wanted to lay down and die.
She tried to lose her weight you know,
It always would go real slow,
And then the weight came back and she’d break down and cry.
She wanted so badly to be thin and healthy,
But her will power seemed far too weak,
And then all at once she climbed up that mountain,
and now she lives on its peak. How do you like her now?
How do you like Dot now? Now that she’s on her way?
No one thought that she’d be -- standing here today.
Now she’s climbed the mountain, she wants you to do it too.
That’s why she made the web page, How do you like Dot now?
It started off just a little thing, an Internet iffy fling,
Never imagined it’d go half this far.
Then the restaurants and recipes
The helpful hints and niceties, they all seemed to really catch on.
Her pictures of before, and then those of after,
Showed how her weight had really gone.
The guest book was filling, the emails were thrilling,
And next thing the conference was on! How do you like Dot now?
(Repeat Chorus twice)

Words modified and sung by Al to the tune of
"Surfin' in the USA"

Well, you've heard of the web page, D-W-L-Z
It getting real hot now, from sea to shining sea,
Over 6 million have dropped in to see,
What Dotti's got cookin' at D-W-L-Z.

They're coming in from Texas,
Massachusetts too,
And from way down under,
Right here in St. Lou
The pounds are droppin'
And it's clear to see,
Things are jumpin' at Dotti's

Now thirteen thousand are lurking,
Or posting every day,
Talking to each other,
Supporting all the way,
And here we are at the conference
Anyone can see,
Things are jumpin' at Dotti's

We're counting our points, now
We're drinkin' water too.
We're all on a journey
Our weight loss skies are blue
We're climbing that mountain,
Just come and see,
Things are jumpin' at Dotti's

Dotti's Two
Words modified by Al, sung by Becca
to the tune of "Over the Rainbow"

With the arch like a rainbow, in St. Lou
Here we are with our friends now,
Enjoying Dotti's Two.

We are set on a journey, and its true
It's what you dare to dream of,
That you will really do!

But when you start it seems so far,
To reach your goal and touch that star above you.
Yet then you find it falls in place,
And a smile grows on your face
As your dreams all come true!

When you are on your journey, you can know,
There you'll find all the Zonies,
With you where e'r you go.

Will Have Thin Thighs!
Words modified by Lisa (lameret) sung by 100+ Forum & other
Zonies to the tune of " I Will Survive"

By Lisa/lameret (not coming to Conference)

At first I was afraid I was petrified
Because my true weight was a number I had always lied
And I spent so many days trying to squeeze into my jeans
I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high

And so I went I finally joined
I really wanted to be thin and not just so "big boned"
And as I go from day to day just counting up my points
I wonder why
But know that I ...

Will have thin thighs!!!

I spent far too many years trying to understand
Making excuses for my ever increasing waist band
Now as far as I'm concerned I'm just living day by day
And exercise
So here's a word to the wise

You can Move, Grove and Lose or walk with Ms. Sansone
But you'll never find a place as good as Dotti's Zone
You'll get tips and recipes and a boost for your ego
You'll never go
And now you know

You'll have thin thighs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Leave a Little Room for the Zone
Words modified by Barbara (librarylady2), sung by Lifetimers
to the tune of "Leave a Little Room for God" by Neil Diamond

Leave a little room for the Zone
As you’re going through rough days
Leave a little room for the Zone
And it will help you find your way

Save a little place inside
With memories from old St. Lou
And leave a little room for these friends
And they'll keep memories of you!

Weight loss is so mysterious
You wonder how you’ll make it through
But when you start to get real serious
The Lifers will be there for you

So, leave a little room for us all
Just in case you need a friend
Everyone’s got rainy days
It isn’t so much if, but when

"Dotti’s" is a gift we’re given
Every single day is new
We’re thankful we can share our livin’
But thankful exactly to who?


Journal each and every bite
Fight fat, as if this were a war!
And guzzle down that H2O
Or your goal will stay afar

And, leave a little room for the Zone
As you’re travellin’ down the scale
With us Lifers cheering on
There is not a chance you'll fail!

Yeah, leave a little room for the Zone
And thank your lucky stars above
That Dotti’s working hard for all
She’s giving quite the gift of love!

Leave a little room for the Zone, my friends
Lifetime Room is waiting for you . . .
Just need
To give others a little back, too!
