The Lyrics

i wrote this song last night
its slight
finished 'bout 9 P.M.
wasn't drunken or high
well, at least not then
i wrecked this song so much
it just ain't right
its homely...out of place
its such a mindless flight

and i think its gonna be the wrong wrong rhyme
i hope my muse comes 'round again in time
i'm not a man who should attempt a poem
oh no no no
i'm a mockin' man

mockin' man
churnin' cause his muse left him alone

this ain't the kind of tune that's fun to twist
in fact, its hard as hell
but there's no one here more brazen
so i did
its all defiance...that, i understand
its just my job, six days a week
a mockin' man
a mockin' man

and i think its gonna be the wrong wrong rhyme
i hope my muse comes 'round again in time
i'm not a man who should attempt a poem
oh no no no
i'm a mockin' man

mockin' man
churnin' cause his muse left him alone

and i think its gonna be the wrong wrong rhyme
and i think its gonna be the wrong wrong rhyme
and i think its gonna be the wrong wrong rhyme

Mars ain't the place to write a parody. But your computer, apparently, is. Five orbits.
