The Lyrics

Soft rock, gives me such a headache, I've been holding my breath
I wish they would change the damn station, It is a matter of life or death
When you hear this song, when you hear this song
It sounds so trite, superficial, even worse than the sound of a gong

Goes on too long, can't tell if my behavior is right or wrong
This song they play has been heard so much, this time I want to throw up

I've been waiting for this song to end, preserve my sanity
I've been waiting for this song to end, to write a parody
I've been waiting for a new song to make me feel awake
Yeah, waiting for this song to end for my co-worker's sake

It's so bad, when the song's over I'm so glad
It is much more than a sense of relief
You wish this pain would be so brief
When you work somewhere, yeah, when you work somewhere

I know it sounds wrong, it has been on ever since I was playing Pong
There's nothing that I'd like to see more than turn off this crashing bore

I've been waiting for this song to end, preserve my sanity
I've been waiting for this song to end, to write a parody
I've been waiting for a new song to make me feel awake
Yeah, waiting for this song to end for my co-worker's sake

I've been waiting, for a good song, ooh, I've been waiting
I've been waiting
(I've been waiting for this song to end, I've been waiting)
Won't you change the station?

A highly sincere rip on the contradiction-in-terms barf-fest that is soft rock. You have my respect and gratitude.

Tim, I can only remember the endless, endless, endless, repetitive, repetitive, repetitive chorus part of this OS, but you captured the mood well and then you properly tortured it, so I'm giving you 5-5-5 based on that.

Ah, yes, Foreigner, who, with Queen, formed the double bill that was the first concert attended by John Rocker.
