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!”
