Chocolate is my love — be it Trix or any other mix.
A chocolate bar I'd never miss,
I might even trade it for a kiss!
I would travel far and wide to get my "fix"!
What should I do? I love it so,
and the more I eat the more I grow,
But my boyfriend wants me "just so".
I guess I'll have to choose between the two.
Dear Lord, give me the will to give up chocolate,
because I want to keep my boyfriend.
I will love him to the end —
He is also my very best friend.
