The Lyrics

The nightmare parodist's torment. I suppose if/when this one feels real, I will run away. :-)
"(Throw This) One Away”

As I write this song
I try not to get it wrong
With rhythms and rhymes that don’t belong.
And as I still write on
I think of the things I’ve done
And whether I am still having fun.

I’m-a balkin’ with my pen,
Fears are stalling my scribblin’
Hoping this new song won’t bomb
At Am-I-Right dot com
And I wonder
Wah – wah – wah – wah wonder
(Is) my
My, my, my, my, my best play,
Yes, I wonder
Is my best play
To throw this one away?

(musical interlude)

Rhymin’ schlock’s all I’ve written
Peers’re callin’ my works a sin
Sayin’ they’re all quite a snore,
Urgin’ me to write no more
Of my blunders,
Bluh- bluh- bluh- bluh- blunders.
(To) my
My, my, my, my, my great dismay
In a thunder-
ous voice they say,
"Throw ev’ry one away!"
Away, way, ev’ry one away!
Away, way, ev’ry one away!
(fade, repeating)
