The Lyrics

Car- (bleah!)
-ly (bleah!)
and (bleah!)
James (bleah!)
Carly and James,

Carly and James must be mad! (they must be mad!)
Their "Mockingbird" song is freakin' bad! (it's freakin' bad!)
Those two must have been paid like kings, (must have been paid like kings)
For them to whine, screech, and cry that thing! (to cry that thing!)

'Cause if they weren't paid well to whine, (paid well to whine)
Surely they'd have said "You're out-a your-a mind!"
I guess money's why they sang it anyway, I'd say!
Yeah, yeah!
Oh, whoa, whoa, it blows, oh, whoa!

Hear me now, believe me then! (believe me then!)
That stupid song is some piece of wrong! (some piece of wrong!)
And if that piece of wrong gets played, (if it gets played)
I'm gonna throw my radio away! (throw my radio away!)

And if it plays on VH1, (on VH1)
(I-I-)I'll shoot at the tube, have fun with my gun!
Can't stand Jim and Carly, shoutin' in my ear!
Those two,
Blow-whoa-whoa, oh they blo-o-ow!


Carly and James must be mad! (they must be mad!)
That "Mockingbird" song's so frikkin' bad! (so frikkin' bad!)
I can't im-ag-ine why they'd sing (can't imagine why they'd sing)
A piece of pap like that crappy thing! (that crappy thing!)

They must've made some coin real fine, (coin real fine)
To hurl an' blow the chunks of, ev'ry stupid line!
And that's why I keep on tellin' everybody,
Bleah! Bleah!
Oh, whoa, whoa, they blow, oh, whoa!

Hear me now, trash 'em again! (trash 'em again!)
That song is vile, it's a steamin' pile! (a steamin' pile!)
And if that pile of vile still steams, (if it still steams)
You're gonna hear all my defiant screams! (defiant screams!)

And if I hear it on the air (on the air)
(I-I-)I think that I'll drink until I don't care!
Don't know why Si-mon and Tay-lor sang that crap, hey!
Those two,
Blow-so-bad, oh they blo-o-ow!

Oh, big thankyou for this, Johnny - I almost didn't read this I hate the OS so much, but I'm now glad I did - what a shocker - brilliantly lampooned - 555

Marriage makes you do strange things musically when you're both musicians. Not that I'd know anything about that. Funny and true, Johnny.
