Subject: Lyr Add: BIG ITALIAN ROSE (from Fred Small)
From: masato sakurai
Date: 07 Jul 02 - 11:27 PM

ARTIST: Fred Small
TITLE: Big Italian Rose

She was riding on the airline leafing through their magazine
They said, "We'll fly you to the homeland that you have never seen"
Smiling tourists in the picture back in sunny Italy
Said she, "These pretty people don't look anything like me!"

{Refrain}
I'm a big Italian woman and I want the world to see
All the big Italian women who look just like me
You can take your slender models and their Fifth Avenue clothes
But you'll never find a flower like the big Italian rose!

Well, the more she thought about it, the more it made her mad
How they make you feel so ugly, how they make you feel so bad
See you junk food and booze then make you diet till you're dead
She sat and wrote a letter and this is what it said:

{Refrain}

"Well, I'm nearly 57, my hair is turning gray
The dress I wore at 20 I cannot wear today
Just an ordinary woman and it sure would make me glad
Just for once to see someone like me in your ad."

{Refrain}

Three weeks later came an answer, from New York it was sent
Said "We'd like to take your picture for our next advertisement"
Soon magazines across the nation in a prominent place
Showed a big Italian woman with a smile on her face

{Refrain}

~Masato

I'm looking for the lyrics and artist who wrote

I'm a big Italian woman and I want the world to see, All the big Italian women who are Just like me.

The song is about a woman writing the editor of a magazine complaining that all the photos of women in his mag are skinny. I think the editor responds by putting her picture on the cover!

Thanks.
