The Lyrics

No, Cover, Oh Why
No, Cover, Oh Why
No, Cover, Oh Why
No, Cover, Oh Why

Today I noticed, when I got my mail
The bundle of letters felt so strange
And when I looked, through the delivery
There was something I could not explain
Amongst the bills and other bulk rate ads
Was my 2010 Consumer Reports Buying Guide
The cover was missing, he had been ripped off
All I could do is sit at the curb and cry

No, Cover Oh Why
No, Cover, Oh Why
Looking to the heavens, I began to cry
No, Cover, Oh Why

I slowly walked, up my long driveway
Shaking my head and cursing my life
Somehow I managed, to get through the front door
Then broke into tears in front of my wife
She said ” What’s wrong. Why are you crying so.
What has made your life so out of order.”
I slowly looked up and showed her the cover less Buying Guide
Then my wife screamed in shock at the horror

She Said
Everything’s gonna be alright
We’ll call Consumer Reports tonight
They’ll gonna make everything alright
Ship another copy, FEDEX tonight
Till then we have to brave the fight
We’ll do whatever to make it right
Our love is strong so hold me tight
Cause everything’s gonna be alright

I know it’s tough and it’s a price we shouldn’t bear
But looking at my Buying Guide I just scream and stare

No, Cover, Oh Why
No, Cover, Oh Why
Looking to the heavens, I begin to cry
No, Cover, Oh Why
