The Lyrics

Marvelous Man, Marvelous Man
Shopping for things with a marvelous plan
What's he buy? It's not important
Marvelous Man
Since he’s hot, the women he gets
Designer clothes get him respect
But normal fellows hate him instead
Wish he would leave…Marvelous Man

Average Man, Average Man
Average Man hates Marvelous Man
He’s got a girls…Average don’t
Average Man

Middle-Aged Man, Middle-Aged Man
Malls really irritate Middle-Aged Man
Usually tries to avoid if he can
Middle-Aged Man
He needs a gift last minute, and
“Millennial what? Don’t care about brands!”
But this sales girl doesn’t understand.
Really annoyed… Middle-Aged Man

Married Man, Married Man
Sits on a bench with Average Man
Waits outside with a purse in his hand
Married Man
Isn’t he stressed? He’s not depressed?
He’s stuck outside Victoria’s Se-cret
Who came here with Married Man?
Smoking hot wife, Married Man

Average Man, Average Man
Average Man hates Married Man
He’s got a girl…Average don’t
Average Man

This is great! Please tell me that you're submitting this for the Artistry competition because I think it would be a strong contender for sure!

very funny story to go with the very short OS. A bit of a odd to stretch "average" into three syllables to match the "triangle" man (av-er-age man)...but I'm willing to overlook that because this was well written. Nicely done!

Average man will get a break one day...maybe.

Certainly makes more sense than the OS lyrics...or maybe that's what they were going for all along? Regardless,welcome to our Artistry competition and stay for more. Good luck!

(Artistry) Pretty well written, but I'm afraid I didn't quite get the joke. Clearly that's my bad, not yours, but still. "Average" having three syllables made perfect sense to me, though. Could be I'm smarter than the av-er-age bear, who knows.

(Artistry) I really liked this a lot. Very fun and very simple idea. The whimsy is infectious. I wish the story would've had a more satisfying ending, but with such a short OS, you just ran out of time. Good work!
