The Lyrics

Don't get me wrong. People with terminal illnesses should live each day to the full. I've lost one person to Lupus, and one to cancer, so I know what he's saying in the song. But DAMN! ALL the time? ALL THE TIME!? Can't turn on the radio without 'live like you were dying' coming on. Just AAAAAAAH!!
In every town in every city
This little cute 3 minute ditty
Of a song that came and made some people smile
Now I spend most of the next days
Hiding from the airwaves
Fiddling with the buttons
And my car's radio dial
I hate that it's sunk it
That they might really play the song again
When's a hit like this ever gonna be through?
Play something new!

Yeah, he went sky diving
He went Rocky Mountain climbing
For 3 minutes and 15 seconds, yeah this song just plays on through
Now it sounds cheaper, it's notfun either
It's sooverplayed, there's just no denying
and I'll say, "Yes sir, you wrote a pretty tune,
But I wish that song were dying."

On every station and every channel
It's more than I can handle
It's become a song I wish I hadn't heard
You know it's time to turn it off, when
They play a single song too often
And you just can't stand it, but you know all the words
Makes you wanna read a good book
Or go pop your eardrums with a fish hook
And it makes you wonder when it's gonna end
No, not again!

he went sky diving
He went Rocky Mountain climbing
For 3 minutes and 15 seconds, yeah this song just plays on through
Now it sounds cheaper, it's notfun either
It's sooverplayed, there's just no denying
and I'll say, "Yes sir, you wrote a pretty tune,
But I wish that song were dying."

You see music is a gift and you got eternity to think about
What'd you do with it what did you do with it
What will you do with it?
What did he do with it?
(the song plays again!)

Sky diving
Crazy, this is driving
For 3 minutes and 15 seconds, yeah this song just plays on through
Now it sounds cheaper, it's notfun either
And there seems to be no point in trying
But I'll say, "Yes sir, you wrote a pretty tune,
But I wish that song were dying."
I wish that song were dying
I wish that song were dyyyyyyyyyying
