Theme Song (Shameless theft!)

I was reading the wonderful Half of Me blog and loved a post Jennette wrote about her "theme song" so I am shamelessly stealing it for here!

It took me a while to think about what my theme song could be, and I was reminded of an episode of Ally McBeal when her therapist asked her to think of her theme song...can anyone remember what she chose? I have it hovering around the fringes of my memory - no doubt it will wake me up at 3am (or worse, 1pm when I'm on nights!) with a flash of recall!

Anyway, what did I come up with as my theme song? Well, it's a bit cheesy, but I love it, I always sing along to it at the top of my voice, and I think it has an important message or 2 buried in there.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you........Mika!

Big Girls you are Beautiful

Walks into the room
Feels like a big balloon I said,
Hey girls you are beautiful'
Diet coke and a pizza please
Diet coke I'm on my knees screamin,
Big girls you are beautiful'
You take your skinny girl
Feel like I'm gonna die
'Cause a real woman
Needs a real man here's why
You take your girl
And multiply her by four
Now a whole lot of woman
Needs a whole lot more
Get yourself to the Butterfly Lounge
Find yourself a big lady
Big boy come on around
And they'll be calling you baby
No need to fantasize
Since I was in my braces
A watering hole
With the girls around
And curves in all the right places
Big girls you are beautiful
Big girls you are beautiful
Big girls you are beautiful
Big Girls you are beautiful

I especially love the bit where it says a whole lot of of woman needs a whole lot more (real man) because for me that lays down a gauntlet - are you man enough to love a big girl?

I couldn't choose a song full of angst because I'm not an angst ridden person. But I bet 20 years ago I would have!

Now tell me yours.
