Nothing Compares to the 5:2

In the month of April we lost over 2 stone and Prince (loads of other people but I like Prince) one of these facts I am happy about (it’s the weight loss).

In a homage to his Purpleness I have done a piece on our journey on the 5:2 diet using his work as inspiration (and yes Prince did write it and perform it so take your Sinead O’Connor and fuck off)

Anyway here we go, trying my hand at creativity once more.

“Nothing Compares to the 5:2”

It’s been seven hours and 30 days
Since you took our snacks away
We don’t go out all night or drink all day
Since you took our treats away

Since they’ve been gone we can’t do whatever we want
We can’t drink whatever we choose
We can eat our dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing, nothing can take away these rules

Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to the 5:2

Beer, Spirits, Kebabs and Curry It’s been so lonely without you here
Like an El Food without a pint
Nothing can stop these fasting days from hurting
But we are here because we previously went wrong

I could put my hands around each scotchegg I see
But then the calories remind me of the 5:2
We went to the Zibs and guess what they told us, guess what they told us
They said, “El Food Bro’s, you better try a healthy alternative to pies and booze.”
Now they’re not fools

Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to the 5:2

All the empty calories we consumed brother
Down the Abel
All died and we went the right way
I know living with the 5:2 is sometimes hard
But I’m willing, see I’m willing to give it another try

Nothing compares
Nothing compares to the 5:2

Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to the 5:2
