The Lyrics

Someone is so vain, she probably thinks this song is about her. But is it?
She:
Well, I can't forget your writing.
You fell in love at first sighting.
But I guess that's just the way the story goes.
You try ignoring me
but musical love shows.
Yes, it shows.

No, I can't forget the laughter
and I just assume that after
writing this song that you'll never let me go.

He:
Well, now, it's only fair that I should let you know
what you should know:

You can't live
if this song ain't about you.
You can't give
give a damn anymore.
You can't live
if this song ain't about you!
You can't give
give a damn anymore!

She:
Well, I can't forget your writing.
You fell in love at first sighting.
But I guess that's just the way the story goes.
You try ignoring me
but musical love shows.
Yes, it shows.

He:
You can't live!
If this song ain't about you!
You can't give!
Give a damn anymore!
You can't live!
If this song ain't about you!
You can't give!
Give a damn anymore!
If this song ain't about you!

(instrumental fadeout)
I think it's time for me to duck.

I know the parody says not to give, but here's some 5's anyway.

Of COURSE it's about me...so don't worry...I'll go on living...um...and giving. A damn.

And there really isn't any need for ducking, Darling...because regardless of what the song says...it only proves that you think about me ALL THE TIME. Which is a good thing...=)

My favorite line was "you try ignoring me, but musical love shows..." Hee! That is SO something I would say...you're starting to know me a little too well, Michael.

That "She" doesn't fool anybody, Michael - this is about ME, isn't it - I'm so flattered (you devil) - 555

Stuart, if I want to pay tribute to Australia, I'll tip big at Outback Steakhouse. Or ask Graeme Lloyd (pitcher on Yanks' '96 WS champs) for his autograph.
