The Lyrics

Zig Ziglar says:Conceit is a disease that makes everyone sick, except the person who's got it.
Life is a symphony, everyone must play a note
I hear you toot your horn
But it sounds so rote

When you toot your horn, it's like: "I really care?"
I'm so bored to tears, don't wanna face hot air
With your rhetoric, you sure make me sick
It's like: "I care?" I know you had to share

I hear your voice, it's like an air bag priding
I have no choice, I hear your voice
Feel like chiding
I plug my ears, Oh God I think you're stalling
Out of my mind, I close my eyes
Oprah help me

When you pat your back, it's like a broken arm
I've lost my peace, I wanna cause you harm
As your hat size swells, I get fainting spells
It's like: "I care?" I know you had to share

Like a child you're boasting often to me
You want control just like a child
Water falling
Words like a stream, no end and condescending
Don't share with me, I want to scream
When your jaw swings

When you drop those names it's like: "I'll be impressed"
I'll call up my priest, I really must confess
At the midnight mass, I can vent at last
I'll say a prayer you know It's hard to care

It's hard to care, your voice is hard to bear
I'm not amused, you are cocaphony
Just want to scream, you are not what you deem
It's like: "I care?," no choice your voice I just cant bear

It's like: "I care?" you have to share
You bring out screams in me

555. Are you sure you want OPRAH to rescue you from a conceited person? Isn't that like 'out of the frying pan into the fire?'

How did I miss this the day it went up? Well said and totally relatable. The intro spoofed TOS beautifully. 555.
