The Lyrics

Before you ask, yes I do remember "Shout". Dedicated to Rice Cube....
Welcome to the charts,
there's no record deal.
even in your sleep.
we will play it.

acting on our single riff, now,
turn your back on music making
living in our one-hit-wonder world.

it's my only song,
up the chart with force.
help me to decide...
help me make the...

best of airplay and our one song,
nothing ever lasts forever!
living in our one-hit-wonder world.

there's no room where the song won't get you!
clamping ears while the radio blasts it out.
when they do I'll be glad for singles!

so now we've almost made it,
one song and then we'll fake it.
living in our one-hit-wonder world.

I can't stand this repetition.
better to just go out fishin'
living in our one-hit-wonder...

say that you'll never never never never like it...
one more time you'll love it, believe me!
living in our one-hit-wonder world

just want airplay of our one song,
nothing ever lasts forever!
living in our one-hit-wonder world.
