The Lyrics

This MIDI at least gives the notes in case you don't know the OS. Scroll down.
To my utter dismay
Never fails once to happen
See the words they say
Well, we do understand.
I don't like to be listening
Now it is expected all of the time
'Cause you found that you listened in
Should I turn away?

It's not right, I'll allow,
To be leading them on now.
They're half-vast, that crowd,
Don't see what they should know.
Unaware of blank looks,they drone,
Given as how their hearts have hoped,
They could find that they do intone.
Their theme is just to be loud.

Things they talk of are trite
They're not sublime, wrath during
Leaves me speechless this trite
We're in silent accord,
Using words you think are deranged.
They realized as they tried the same
That they never can change
Felt the stings of their plight.

( instrumental)

Now I'll just turn away
These people make me weary
I have to turn away
From oldness provided.
See, your words,I plead, you must share,
It's not that you should be standing there.
It's only my scheme you must agree.
I'll be turning away.

Thanks AFW and Yoidy. Sorry,Yoidy, it isn't. It's a parody about no one in particular.

It's a parody about most people. "Don't see what they should know. Unaware of blank looks,they drone"... Perspicacious and penetrating, Pat. 555
