The Lyrics

I wrote this parody at the last minute to turn into the editor of a Darren Hayes newsletter, "When The Music Feels Like This."
Come over here

All I got is this evening
To write this freakin' parody
You can laugh all you want
Everybody does yeah that's okay

So slide over here
And give me a moment
To write this damn song
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know
I have a deadline

I write this tonight
"Cause I was busy
I procrastinated it
'Till Halloween

Writer's block
I'm thinking
Wanna know what
Happened to me?
Listen to the rest
Of my story

I needed this song
so I downloaded it
But it was messed up
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know
I have a deadline

I write this tonight
Cause I got lucky
and found someone who had
The "Kick" CD

So it's Halloween
I'm writing
Everyone else
Is all dressed up
Writer's block
Is what I have
I'm staring at
A blank screen

No idea
what to write about
Now look what I did
I wrote about it

So I'm at the end
Of this here parody
I wrote about crap
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know

So slide over here
And give me a moment
I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know

I'm on a deadline
