The Lyrics

A tribute to Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.
While we're on the subject
Could we change the subject now?
I was doing your prison sentence but you were always out
Looking towards the future
We were begging for the past
Well we knew we had the good things
But those never seemed to last
Oh please just last

Everyone's unhappy
Everyone's ashamed
Well we all just got bad looking
At somebody else's page
Well nothing ever went
Quite exactly as we planned
Our ideas held no magazine
But we used them like Playboy

Oh, and we carried it all so well
As if we got a new position
Oh, and I laugh all the way to read
Saying yes, this is a fine promotion
Oh, and I laugh all the way to read

Of course everyone goes reading
Over such and such and such
We made a magazine on you
We just used it as on Playboy
We were certainly uncertain
At least I'm pretty sure I am
Well we didn't need the magazine
But we just built that good reboot

Oh, and I know this of myself
I assume as much for other publications
Oh, and I know this of myself
We've listened more to life's end gong
Than the sound of life's sweet heart

Was it ever worth it?
Was there all that much to gain?
Well we knew we missed Hugh Hefner
And we'd already missed the journalist
We didn't read Playboy
We just dance at our wake
All our favorites were playing
So we could shake, shake, shake, shake, shake

Tiny curtains open and we heard the tribute by the fans
A tiny girl would tell a little joke and get a tiny laugh from all the folks
Sitting drifting around in Playboy and thinking it was us that carried them
When we finally got it figured out that we had truly missed Hugh Hefner

Oh, and we carried it all so well
As if we got a new position
Oh, and we owned all the people ourselves
But not the skills to make a journalist with
Oh, what useless new people ourselves
