There was a girl named Gurtie,

who wasn’t very purdy.

An Italian girl who weighed a half a ton.

She ate ice cream every day,

so the boys all stayed away

and she asked, “what can I do to catch me one?


Well, her dad was pretty smart,

and loved his fat sweetheart

so he came up with a special recipe.

He said, “This will make you thinner,

so with boys you’ll be a winner.

Eat this instead of ice cream and you’ll see.”


In a month she reached her goal

becoming skinny as a pole,

and all the boys in town began to flirt.

Now, back to how it got it’s name

and became a thing of fame…

With each batch her dear dad made

he’d call … ”Yo ….. Gurt!”
