Fat Funny Friend
Maddie Zahm Lyrics


I break the ice
So they don't see my size
And I have to be nice
Or I'll be the next punchline

I'm just the best friend in Hollywood movies
Who only exist to continue the story
The girl gets the guy while I'm standing off-screen
So I'll wait for my cue to be comedic relief

Can't be too loud
Can't be too busy
If I don't answer now, are they still gonna need me?
Can't be too proud
Can't think I'm pretty
Do they keep me around, so their flaws just seem silly?

I say I'm okay
'Cause they wouldn't care anyway
And I could try to explain
But my effort's in vain
They can't relate to how I've

Drawn out in Sharpie where I take the scissors
If that's what it took for me to look in the mirror
I've done every diet to make me look thinner
So why do I still feel so goddamn inferior?

Can't be too loud
And can't be too busy
If I don't answer now, are they still gonna need me?
Can't be too proud and
Can't think I'm pretty
Do they keep me around, so their flaws just seem silly?

Life of the fat, funny, friend
Life of the fat, funny, friend

It's funny when I think a guy likes me
And it's funny when I'm the one who says, "Let's go to eat"
It's funny when I'm asked to go out on Halloween
Dresses and thigh highs, while I hide my body

Can't be too loud
And can't be too busy
If I don't answer now, are they still gonna miss me?

Can't be too loud
And can't be too busy
If I don't answer now, are they still gonna need me?
Can't be too proud and
Can't think I'm pretty
Do they keep me around, so their flaws just seem silly?

Life of the fat, funny, friend
Life of the fat, funny, friend
Life of the fat, funny, friend
Life of the fat, funny, friend

I've drawn out in Sharpie where I take the scissors

19 year old girl here. This hurts and hits so hard. My freinds are total sweethearts and I know that they dont judge me but .....I can't stop thinking this.
But at the same time I have people in Mt life who think commenting on my body every single day isn't body shaming or pointing out my flaws. They hide it as concern but it slowly kills me.
While all my freinds looked cute af in their school uniforms, teachers told to wear looser clothes because I looked "odd"
People touching my stomach, when I proudly told them I lost a few KGs to make sure "I was telling the truth"
Having emotional breakdowns before going to fancy parties cause the dresses hugged in all the wrong places.
People being shocked to learn how little I ate "because I didn't look like it'd fill me up"
Being told not to wear certain styles of dresses because they though it looked bad on me because I was fat.
Looking back at and deleting pictures because my double chin was showing or I just looked odd next to my model like freinds.
Or photos taken even further back and reminiscing on how "skiny I used to be.
Having to hear for the last 2 years that no one would want to Marry me because of my weight.
I can't even imagine a guy ever being remotely attracted to me.
Being told by family I barely know or random qss people like a dentist and a shoe salesman that I need to loose weight.
And you know what I'll be honest, I'm not even that big. Though I am slightly over weight, I'll acknowledge that , but no where big enough that my health would be affected in the slightest, nor is it that j can't find proper sizing in ready made clothes. It's just that im bigger then the average or ideal size for women in my country. And all of these people seem to take it personally acting as if I aren't already aware of how I look

Is it okay that I'm actually sobbing right now?
"Can't be too loud, Can't be too busy,
If I don't answer now, are they still gonna need me?"
"It' funny when i think a guy likes me"
"Dresses and thigh highs while i hide my body"
It is clearly unbelievable how this song fits my life, as I'm that fat funny friend, who's actually been body-shamed her whole life, and who actually hates her life, because of how she looks like.
I don't really know, whether should I thank you for writing a song about this huge problem, or should I just "relate" to you, and be like "ah yes...i understand you".
So I'm going to do, what I want to.... I send you an unknown-virtual hug, and a little sigh.
(And oh, forgive me please, if there's a problem with my English, I'm learning it.)

I can't "relate" to this song, so I've held off on commenting because I don't want to take any attention away from the ones who do relate to it. But this is honestly one of the most beautiful songs I've heard in a long time. I hardly hear emotion in music anymore, but I can hear the pain, the struggle and and overall emotion. You've got a phenomenal voice and a talent for songwriting. I hope you go far.
