The Lyrics

See also "The Block of a Writer In Peril." We've all been there. Some of you may be there right now. But, as the late, great Leo McGarry (John Spencer on "The West Wing") put it, "Yeah, but I've been down here before, and I know the way out."
(instrumental opening)

Every writing boy and girl
all around this big wide world
gets a case of writer's block.
Keeps you up around the clock.

Jack be nimble, Jack be quick.
Jack can't write song 'bout his chick.
Keeps him up around the clock.
He's been hit with writer's block.
Wha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Thinking harder now.
Thinking harder now.
Such strain on the brain!

You turn on the radio.
Get inspired, there, you know.
But the tunes you hear them play
don't give you no hints today.

Jack be nimble, Jack be quick.
Jack can't write song 'bout his chick.
Keeps him up around the clock.
He's been hit with writer's block.
Wha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

(La-las over the backing track)

Get yourself to your TV.
Turn on MSNBC.
There's a story that might help.
Bush has embarrassed himself.

Jack be nimble, Jack be quick.
Jack laughs at Bush with his chick.
Now a song comes, ain't no shock.
He just broke his writer's block.
Wha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Write out all eight bar!
You'll be a parody star!
You'll thrive with the fives!

(whistle to end)
The "Jack" listed above does not refer to our own Jack "Red Ant" Fletcher. At least, I hope it doesn't, for his sake. And I'm sure some of you were hoping for something else to rhyme with "quick." Sorry.
