The Lyrics

Part of my "Blame It On The Pop" self-challenge. An ode to writer's block. Enjoy!
I've run out of nouns, nouns, nouns, nouns, nouns
No-o-o-o-oun, no-o-o-oun
Why can I not find one single noun?
No-o-o-o-oun, no-o-o-oun (oh)

This is a load (load, load)
I'm utterly stumped, the words won't flow
They're a no-show (show, show)
This writer's block must weigh eighty stone
No ideas will come to me
Not a single spark or flame (flame, flame)
One word would do it for me
But bog all comes from my brain (brain, brain)

When I write, normally
Ideas come to me
In quite a flurry
Instantly I scribble them all down
Tonight, I'm empty
My drive has left me
And I'm out of nouns, nouns, nouns, nouns, nouns
No-o-o-o-oun, no-o-o-oun
Simply out of nouns, nouns, nouns, nouns, nouns
No-o-o-o-oun, no-o-o-oun
How come I can't find one useful noun?

All that I need
Is one damn word to simply come to me
But they've gone away (hey)
My mind's all dried up like a bad summer's day
Know all words from A to Zee
Or Zed, that's what I should say (say, say)
Fingers write a noun, oh please
Cause my mind's about to break
No, that's a verb, for smeg's sake!

This is a worry
It's why I'm angry (oh-ooooh)
This isn't like me (no-ooh-ooooh)
This shouldn't be hard, and so I frown
No dictionary (yeah-eah)
Can really help me (no-ooh)
Too long to find nouns, nouns, nouns, nouns, nouns
No-o-o-o-oun, no-o-o-oun (woo!)
I need a quick noun, noun, noun, noun, noun
No-o-o-o-oun, no-o-o-oun (mm, no nouns)
I can't come up with a simple

Noun, just verbs come to me
Adjectives come easily
Nouns are what I'd prefer
But so far nada's come to me
I'm boned (boned), I'm in deep
Deep trouble, the deadline's at three
Must get this to the editor
One last damn word then I am free
I can't think of one word
Like a tube of glue, I'm stuck
Don't care if the word is stupid
Since the character's a schmuck
Can nouns drive one to insanity?
Apparently, well, honestly
I'm screwed, you see all nouns have run away from me

I need to hurry
Writer's block's crushed me
Bossman, I'm sorry (woah!)
I can't think of something to write down
And, sir, you know me (oooh)
This just ain't like me (oooh)
To run out of nouns, nouns, nouns, nouns, nouns (not one good word can be found)
No-o-o-o-oun (nouns), no-o-o-oun (nouns)
Can't think of one noun, noun, noun, noun, noun
No-o-o-o-oun (ah-ooh-ooh-ooh), no-o-o-oun (I think my brain has left town)
I feel like an illiterate clown
Oooh, na-ooh-ooh-ooh (ha-ha-ha-ha)
Well, I've done run out of nouns (screwed, man)

Was thinking of making this about my own writer's block when it comes to parodies, but I came up with the "character's a schmuck" line and it made more sense to make it about a novel writer. I was also gonna have random nouns in the elongated "down" parts, but I figured it wouldn't make sense if the singer can't think of any nouns.
