Adele and chocolate rank highly in my list of favourite things.  So seeing as it’s Easter I thought I would combine the two.  Here is my version of the heart-achingly beautiful, “All I Ask” for everyone that has overindulged on the chocolate eggs.

 

You might need a crowbar…

All I Ask

I’ve been stood on the scales again
It wasn’t good
The number’s way to high, you know
It’s time that we part ways my friend
And I am scared of what is coming next
No more chocolate in my life


Look, don’t get me wrong
I know we’ve tried this all before
All I ask is


If this is my last taste of you
Linger in my mouth, let’s just pretend
You’re not adding to my waistline.
Take you by the wrapper while I savour every bite
It matters how this ends
Cause I’m never going to eat you again


I will love you from afar
I can’t even dip my spoon
into the Nutella jar
No one soothes me like you do
And I can’t use the PMT excuse
I’m really going to miss you


Look, don’t get me wrong
I know we’ve tried this all before
All I ask is

 

If this is my last taste of you
Linger in my mouth, let’s just pretend
You’re not adding to my waistline
Take you by the wrapper while I savour every bite
It matters how this ends
Cause I’m never going to eat you again


Let this be my last taste divine
Let me have the will power this time
I don’t wanna share you with no one
And I ain’t asking for no fun size
All I ask is


If this is my last taste of you
Linger in my mouth, let’s just pretend
You’re not adding to my waistline
Take you by the wrapper while I savour every bite
It matters how this ends
Cause I’m never going to eat you again

 

Here’s the real version as performed on The Ellen Show….

    Very clever! I bet you loved writing this – such fun!! I love Adele but chocolate even more (just eaten a whole load of DELICIOUS Kingdom chocolate, the little brother of Montezuma’s for the blog … that’s put me back a few pounds ;)) Particularly like the ‘PMT not being an excuse any more’. (But surely sleep deprivation/endless patience are reason enough to indulge. And even more painful in my book!?) #FridayFrolics

    Not familiar with the song, but I’ve spent a lot of time pleading with the scale lately also. Without the good excuse that you have!

    Ha ha this is brilliant – I’m trying to refrain from singing it out loud in my open-plan office…! I think you should record yourself singing it out post it on YouTube… 😉
    Thanks for hosting #FridayFrolics

    Ah that is just brilliant! You should send this to Adele to see if she will perform your version! The dipping a spoon in the Nutella jar had me in stitches #fridayfrolics x

      I did tweet it to her, but not sure she runs her own twitter. She’s a down to earth girl, I thought it might make her smile!

    All I could eat during both my pregnancies was choccy and as soon as my babies were born I couldn’t stand it! Very clever post 😉 #fridayfrolics

    Too good. Laughed, related and then laughed some more! Brilliantly executed:)

    Absolutely brilliantly done Claire. I have not had chocolate for a week and a half – and it is killing me!! Thank you for linking to Prose for Thought xx

    Brilliant! I’m facing a similar resolution myself to cut out these goodies I have become somewhat addicted to since my daughter was born. The diet starts Monday. Easy to declare on the Saturday before…pass me some more chocolate, may as well make the most of it while I can.

    Brilliant! I felt every word Claire!! I am absolutely, definitely, positively never eating chocolate again. Maybe.
