The Lyrics

Is it me, or does every Nickelback song sound the same? (No offense, Nickelback fans.)
Never made it through music school
I could never grasp originality
So I succumbed to the same chord
Transitions for every single album I
Have ever written with my band

This is how I write music
And sing to every song
This is how I write music
And sing to every song

It’s not like me to transpose chords
And ref’rence music from different genres
I’m used to rock and roll
Despite complaints from my dear bandmates

They say that we’re in a rut
We have the same template for every song
The fans have started to
Bitch, “Is there something different?”

Yeah, yeah, yeah
No, no
Yeah, yeah, yeah
No? Damn.

It’s not like I don’t have critics
They have the time to write a scathing review
And it must have done nothing
‘Cause every album we make repeats itself

Yeah, this is how I write music
And sing to every song
This is how I write music
And sing to every song

It’s not like me to expand my
Musical horizons ever
I stick to rock and roll
Despite complaints from my dear bandmates

They say that we’re in a rut
We have the same template for every song
The fans have started to
Bitch, “Is there something different?”

Yeah, yeah, yeah
No, no
Yeah, yeah, yeah
No, no
Yeah, yeah, yeah
No, no
Yeah, yeah, yeah
No? Damn.

Never made it through music school
I could never grasp originality
Oh, this is how I write music
This is how I write music

This is how I write music
And sing to every song
This is how I write music
And sing to every song

It’s not like me to open my
Mind up to constructive criticism
I write true rock and roll
Despite complaints from my dear bandmates

They say that we’re in a rut
We have the same template for every song
The fans have started to
Bitch, “Is there something different?”

Yeah, yeah
Is there something different?
Yeah, yeah
Is there something different?
Yeah, yeah
Is there something different?
Yeah, yeah
No? Damn.
