The Lyrics

this ain't thrilling,
should pack this in,
we're still singing

we put this out, the single stiffs again
I think we're gonna get dropped this time
we put this out, the album stiffs again
I think we're gonna get dropped this time

missing the charts again
missing the charts again

we put the ballad out
we put the remix out
limited e.p. out
the rockier track out
re-release songs from the time our fans would buy them
re-release songs from the time our fans listened to them

"you're not as good
not as good
as you were..."

we put this out, the single stiffs again
I think we're gonna get dropped this time
we put this out, the album stiffs again
I think we're gonna get dropped this time

missing the charts again
missing the charts again

we put dance singles out
we put the 12" out
the mini-albums out
our fanclubs bailing out
re-release songs from the time our fans would buy them
re-release songs from the time our fans listened to them

"don't buy this please
it's not worth it......"

we put this out, the single stiffs again
I think we're gonna get dropped this time
we put this out, the album stiffs again
I think we're gonna get dropped this time

we put this out, the single stiffs again
(this ain't thrilling,)
I think we're gonna get dropped this time
(should pack this in,)
we put this out, the album stiffs again
(We're still singing)
I think we're gonna get dropped this time
