The Lyrics

The title is self explanatory
41 years, that I’ve been alive
Seven of those years I was in a band
Called 4 Non Blondes
And we didn’t have a hit till 1993
Now everyone knows that I sound like a man
Whenever Im singing
The hit’s “What’s Up?”

Was a very big hit
We’re a one hit wonder
What’s with this song?
And I have the voice of another gender
And so I go do the doctor and ask him
If I am a guy
Or could I be a hermaphrodite?
And I sing from the top of my lungs
What's going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what’s with my voice?
Ooh, ooh ooh
And I swear, to all gods, I’m no guy
I swear I don’t sing the Numa Numa song
And I foun-ded record companies
Made people famous
Brought over James Blunt
To the USA
Cause he sounds just like me
Except more feminine
Sinus filled head
And no wonder we were 4 Non Blondes
Cause we’re just 4 brunettes
Yeah, this song was a hit
And I sound like it and I can’t sing very high
Am I developing testicles?
Got stupid hair
Boy George like ha-ya-ya-a-air
When I sing, what's with my voice?
I guess Im better off writing and producing
Songs that become really big hits, cause singing
-‘s not my best talent

It's kind of quiet today isn't it? I read your song and it looked okay to me.

Jack, I LOVE the idea, but I gotta be honest, brother: I couldn't pace this at all to TOS. The MP3 I downloaded sounds like I remember the song.... I don't know. I'd gladly give you a five for funny, but at the moment I'm at a complete loss as how to vote the pacing. *5*

I guess she found out that some people (Ernie Maresca in the Sixties, J.D. Souther in the Seventies, Jellybean Benitez in the Eighties, and now Timbaland) are better off writing and producing hits for others, and now she has, for Christina Aguilera and Pink, among others. As for Linda sounding like a man, I never thought so, but she is openly gay. And why didn't she just title the song "What's Going On?" Sure, Marvin Gaye had an all-timer with that title, but there's no law against doing another song (but not all that different in philosophy) with the same title.
