Do you mean Playtex? As in:
All around my fat, I will wear the Playtex girdle.

It's somewhere on this site if not in the DT, and is a sort of parody of All Around My Hat
Just put "All around my fat" in the search box.

Well, yes, it was in the Mudcat Songbook, but I see no reason why it shouldn't be here in the Forum. Micca, do you sing this one, too?

All Around My Fat
Lyrics by: Penny Ward (submitted by Micca)
Tune: All around my hat (Traditional)

Chorus:
All around my fat
I will wear the Playtex Girdle
And all around my fat
For an evening and a day
And if anyone should ask me
The reason why I'm wearing it
It's all for my true love
Who thinks I'm built this way

Verse 1
Take half a pound of talcum
And a small jar of Vaseline
A shoehorn comes in handy
It's the biggest you've ever seen!
You put it all together
And you will plainly see
I'm a different shape completely
And in abject agony

Chorus

Verse 2

The other night he bought me
A small box of lingerie
All frothy lace and satin
The colour of ivory
I went to change and left him
Anticipating hedony
So much for Janet Reger
I can't get them past my knees!

Chorus

Verse3

Fare the well Weight Watchers
And fare the well the step class
Three stone have I gained
And my waistline I have lost
I'll eat and I'll be merry
Dispense with guilt and calories
I'll stuff the sodding 'F' plan
It's a fry up for me tea!

No problem. It's difficult at times to wend one's way around Mudcat and I thought you'd like the lyrics. Thank you for requesting the lyrics. I've never seen them before and it gave me a good chuckle.

Or, with apologies to Bryan Hyland:

She was ashamed to come down from her bedroom.
She was afraid that her father would laugh.
She was afraid of the taunts in the classroom
For her new bra, size A (less a half!)

It was an over-shoulder-boulder-holder
That she wore for the first time today.
An over-shoulder-boulder-holder,
And in her bedroom she wanted to stay.

As with Playtex, you might have to be "of a certain age" to understand that, Nigel!
In case Ragman doesn't know about Playtex, here it is!
