The Lyrics

Because the radio stations can kill a good song by playing it to death...
Sometimes a song just gets under your skin
Brings you a smile when you hear it again
You buy the CD at your favorite place
Add the artist to you friends on MySpace
You post the lyrics on your blog

One at a time all your friends each come around
Singing the praises of this catchy new sound
The radio plays it one more time
You think to yourself well this is fine
Next thing you know hey there's that song

CHORUS: This song's way overplayed
Gonna drive me insane
It's a really good song but it's hurtin my brain
They just can't let it go
For an hour or so
Every seventeen minutes gonna hear it s'mo
This song's overplayed
Wish the DJ would die
FM, XM or SIR'US, turn them on and your find
This song's overplayed
It's way overplayed

At one time this song just made you say
I'd love me a blue sky holiday
But radio has done it wrong


Some times you go to a bar for a drink
And I'll be damned but there's that song
You try and try to get it out of your mind
But it won't leave you alone
You sigh and groan.

So sometimes a song just gets under your skin
Oh not again
You have to ignore till it falls off the charts.


--Robeson 2006

(with all due apologies to Daniel Powter-- it really is a good song, the radio stations are just playing it to DEATH)

Pretty good, but I had to dock you a point for actually thinking that piece of crap was a good song. ONCE would have made it overplayed.
