The Lyrics

following the recent spate of crap madonna covers (i.e. Kelly Osborne and some crappy dance band) I've donated the following song to Mrs Ritchie for when she decides to concentrate on making music rather than dull films
boy bands, I know you're going to be washed up
appealing only to little girls
but you sell sod all now, and haven't lately

your pop svengali's left and gone
you need the sales just to carry on
the record selling art
is something you've no say in

the hit you couldn't do without
the record co. want to chuck you out
you've just got no songs left
and you've not had lately, please

Don't cover me, write your own songs please
Don't cover me, 'less it's hits you need
Songs you wrote on your own, they won't be remembered
no they won't be remembered

you saw that it charted at number 3
alongside such mediocrity
maybe you'll sell alright
and the album chart's in sight

but reviews keep saying you should give it up
from the royalties you never earn enough
what you need just now is some songs to write, please

Don't cover me, write your own songs please
Don't cover me, 'less it's hits you need
Songs you wrote on your own, they won't be remembered
no they won't be remembered

covers, covers, oh do we really need
a dance mix of Madonna, please?
You'll only mess the thing up now
Cause this is no good,
This is no good, Please

Don't cover me, write your own songs please
Don't cover me, 'less it's hits you need
Songs you wrote on your own, they won't be remembered
no they won't be remembered
