The Lyrics

You tell me that I can't write a song
Well, buddy - you're dead wrong
I know all of the rules
I need to break
First, you gotta end each phrase on "one"
A hook - you're almost done!
The words come last 'cause they're
Easiest to fake

And though it sounds a little absurd
Write one like one they've already heard

Tell me where have I heard that song before?
Is it Chaka Khan or Shakatak
Or oh, so many more?
There's that song! I hear it forty times a day
Even though I concentrate
It always slips away
I can't recall the name

Now, nobody writes a song alone
And each new hit's a clone
Is it laziness
Or no imagination?
Pop music was never meant to be
A corporate entity
It's the same playlist
On ev'ry FM station

Isn't it time they realized
Pop shouldn't be homogenized?

Is it Weil? Is it Masser? Is it Snow?
Is it Carol Bayer Sager's song
Or Barry Manilow?
Is it Mann? Is it Graydon? Who can tell?
Is it David Foster's tune?
It doesn't ring a bell
I don't know who to blame

There's that song! And it drives me up a wall!
Sitting in the dentist's chair
Or shopping at the mall
There's that song! If I hear it one more time
I just might go postal
And commit some heinous crime
What a f*%^$#@^ shame
