Body image

My shirt is too taut to
Cover up my bumps
My shirt is too taut to
Stretch down to my trunks
My shirt is too taut to
Pretend I've got guns
My shirt is too taut to
Say that I'm a hunk

My jeans are too tight to
Prise coins from my side
My jeans are too tight to
Unfasten the fly
My jeans are too tight to
Hide my surprise
My jeans are too tight to
Give me a disguise

My clothes are too tiny
Tighter than my skin
My clothes are too tiny
For the shape I am in
My clothes are too tiny
It's a sartorial fact
My clothes are too tiny
Or am I too fat?
