Couch Potato

Written by: peggy caulfield

Sitting on the sofa
Munching on some chips
Not a care in the world
Of calories on the hips.

Slouched down on the cushion
The tv glued to his face
You ask him a question
But he's out in outer space.

You call him to the table
He won't leave his favorite chair
The sports are on the screen
He must eat his dinner there.

The man is getting fatter
Nothing you do will get him out
You turn the tube off
And all he does is shout.

This couch potato man 
No further does he get
His life is all downhill
Cause he's caught within a net.

The tv screen has got him
It's made him very lame
He won't go out the door
This man has earned his name.
