The Lyrics

Most of the songs I've ever hated have been repetitive and mindless in other words, monotonous. So if I'm ever hit with another case of writer's block, all I gotta do is listen to Z-100 (New York's major Top 40 station, 100.3 FM) for about six hours, and I'll have a new edition of "Monotonous."
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo-da-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo, da-doo-doo
da-doo-doo-doo, da-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.)

Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo-da-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo, da-doo-doo
da-doo-doo-doo, da-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.)

Uh-oh!
When woman the lyrics turn cold
this guy's song don't get warm!
I got the wrong temperament for this stupid music form!
Oh, Lord, girl, he got the right tactics for you to get sick
And girl, I take you to the doctor real, real quick!
Oy vey!
When woman the lyrics turn cold
this guy's song don't get warm!
I got the wrong temperament for this stupid music form!
Oh, Lord, girl, he got the right tactics for you to get sick
And girl, I take you to the doctor real, real quick!
Oy vey!

Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo-da-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo, da-doo-doo
da-doo-doo-doo, da-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.)

Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo-da-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo, da-doo-doo
da-doo-doo-doo, da-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.)

He thinks he's brilliant!

He thinks he's brilliant!
That bull is pure!
I'm sick of this song!
And that's for sure!
I hear it on the subway!
Hate it like any man!
This song is awful beyond compare!
Shoulda kept it in the can!
You're pitiful!
You're pitiful!
You're pitiful!
It's true!
I'll punch your face
in any place
and you won't know what to do
'cause, James Blunt, I'm sick of you!

Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo-da-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo, da-doo-doo
da-doo-doo-doo, da-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.)

Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo-da-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo, da-doo-doo
da-doo-doo-doo, da-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.)

You're singing this song, and you hit a new low.
You're faking some talent, and that we all know.
I tell you your singing is way off line.
I'm falling to pieces everytime
And I don't need you carrying on!

'Cause you had a bad song!
You're taking us down!
You sing a bad song, you can't turn it around!
You say you don't know
this song makes us cry?
We work at a smile, but we know it's a lie!
You had a bad song!
The people don't lie!
Don't you come back 'round
'cause we really would mind!
You had a bad song!
You had a bad song!

Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo-da-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo, da-doo-doo
da-doo-doo-doo, da-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.)

Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo-da-doo.)
Monotonous.
(Doo-doo, da-doo-doo, da-doo-doo
da-doo-doo-doo, da-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.)
Who needs Sean Paul? We've already got people on this site who don't seem to speak English. Who needs James? We've already got people who are quite Blunt, myself included. And who needs Daniel Powter? Arwen's the only Pouter we need!

I would like to say something for the record. I cannot hold still when I hear Sean Paul sing...er...do whatever it is that he does. The act of hearing him REQUIRES me to dance. Seriously. I can never get myself to actually buy his CDs...but I have a friend who has 'Temperature' as the ring tone on her phone...and sometimes, when I'm hanging out with her, I call her phone just to hear the song...and then, in turn, "shake that thing." Something you might like to think about before you condemn his works completely...; )

And I LOOOOOOVE Daniel Powter...and not just because his last name would SO suit me...; ) Have you heard anything beSIDES 'Bad Day?' Give it a try...some of his other songs remind me a little bit of Elton John. I LOOOOOOVE his music. Seriously. His is a CD I AM willing to spend money on...I just haven't yet...

Having said all of that...you HAVE to know that I would take YOU, Mr. Blunt, over James ANY DAY OF THE WEEK!! And, as far as that goes, I don't want to have Fictional Flings with the first two...I just want their music to be on the soundtrack of my Fictional Flings...; ) xoxoxo!

The original performer of the song is Italian composer extrordinaire Piero Umiliani...

Artist Police, turn in your badge. The song "Ma-Na-Ma-Na" is by Jim Henson. You don't credit "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" to anyone but Dusty Springfield, do you? Do you credit "Seasons In the Sun" to Terry Jacks or Jacques Brel? Don't make me come after you. I don't have to bring Arwen, but I might, just for kicks.
