Conference Songs
Vancouver, WA - April 22th-24th, 2005


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

(Verse 1)
Yeah she was always the heavy one, the one where they poked the fun,
Sometimes she just wanted to lie 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?

(chorus)
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?

(Verse 2)
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?

(Verse 3)
The storms of life have done their best, to put her to the acid test
At times it looked like they'd spell her defeat
Her knee went under arthroscope,
And then she had to try to cope, with smoking cessation’s demands to eat
But while things were crumbling, in spite of her stumbling,
Dotti still refused to fall!
Each obstacle clearing, her goal ever nearing, And now I'm asking you all...HOW DO YOU LIKE DOT NOW???
(Repeat Chorus twice)

D.W.L.Z.

Words by Al and sung 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 31 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,
And I'm Telling you,
The pounds are droppin'
And it's clear to see,
Things are jumpin' at Dotti's
D-W-L-Z!

Now thirty 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
D-W-L-Z!

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
D-W-L-Z!

You Will Win

Words written by Al and sung to the tune of
"Let It Be"

The road to goal's not always easy,
At times it's uphill all the way,
But take heart and listen to me, as I say...
If you're right on program daily,
Or if you're over points again,
Never give up trying
And you will win!

Yes, you will win,
You will win.
Never quit, just start again.
Even if you falter you will win!

When your joy has sunk in darkness,
When you feel you've lost your sight,
Hope's candle still is burning in the night!
For when you stuggle ever forward,
Moving past your eating sin,
You will be rewarded,
Yes, you will win!

Oh, you will win,
You will win.
Never quit, just start again.
Even if you falter you will win!

The secret of a winning journey?
Giving up is never done;
as long as you keep trying you have won!
Dotti's Weight Loss Zone awaits you,
where your friends help you to win,
Especially when you're struggling once again.

Oh, you will win,
You will win.
Never quit, just start again.
Even if you falter you will win!

Yes, you will win,
You will win.
Never quit, just start again.
Even when you falter you will win!

Side By Side

Words modified by
and song performed by
The 40’s Forum

Original words and music
by Harry Macgregor Woods

Oh! we ain’t got a barrel of money,
Maybe we’re ragged and funny,
But we’ll travel along,
Singing a song,
Side by side

I don’t know what’s coming tomorrow;
Maybe it’s trouble and sorrow,
But we’ll travel the road,
Sharing our load,
Side by side.

Thru all kinds of weather,
What if the sky should fall?
Just as long as we’re together,
It really doesn’t matter at all.

When they’ve all had their quarrels and parted,
We’ll be the same as we started,
Just traveling along,
Singing a song,
Side by side.

Thru all kinds of weather,
Maybe the pounds will fall,
As long as I have my Zonies,
It doesn’t matter at all.

Oh, we can’t eat a bundle of candy,
Losing weight is still dandy!
So keep counting the points,
And exercising our joints,
Side by side.
