The Lyrics

Sadly, Barry Manilow DID NOT write "I Write the Songs."
It's confused me forever, thought Barry wrote this killer song
Dudes put the words and the melodies together, not him
He is music but he don't write the songs

He don't write the songs but makes the whole world sing
He did write some songs but this isn't one of them
He sings the songs that make the young girls cry
But he don't write the songs, don't write the songs

This song lies deep within him
Lying about talent is real old
Now, when I look at the composer list
Don't see Barry's name, even though it's very good


Oh his music makes you dance
And gives you spirit to take a chance
But I wrote some rock 'n' roll so you can move
Barry broke my heart
Well, that's a real fine place to start
It's from someone else it's for him
It's from him, it's for someone else
He didn't write this song, see


He is Music (music) but he don't write the songs
