The Lyrics

Also published on
(To the tune of Rain by Status Quo)

How can I go with this massive
How can I go where I went before
How can I tell it I don’t want it to stay
How can I make it to just go away
Yes I can live without mi-graine
Yes I can live without mi-graine

How can I watch the news on
How can I when all I care about
Is that girl that puts a smile on my
While some of the news is bringing a
tear to my eye
No I can’t live without my Zain
No I can’t live without my Zain

That’s torturing my head
Pain that’s aching in my head
Pain that’s aching
Pain that’s aching
Pain that’s hammering my head

I start to think about you know what
I’d like to write no line but a refrain
How can I write one when I have no
I’ll start to write tonight and write all
Now I can rephrase a refrain
Now I can rephrase a refrain

Hello Lord U. I enjoyed your parody. I presume we are talking about Zain Verjee, CNN's State Department correspondent in Washington? At first I thought Zain was a headache tablet, thank goodness for the internet!

I have always noticed that Status Quo songs from the 70s don't seem to get much of a response on this site, have never worked out why. With yours, it wasn't bad, although I felt maybe the pacing was off here and there, and you were missing one line out: you needed another "No I can’t live without my Zain" prior to "That’s torturing my head".

I felt maybe that ideas ran out in the last verse, i couldn't really follow where it was going. But overall, not bad stuff.
