lyrics

"Open up and sing about your life," they say to you
You don't know me, don't pretend you know what good that'll do
"Carry on and sing your song then go about your day
You keep trying, you keep trying and maybe things'll go your way"

But there's too many songs already
What good'll one more do?
What good'll one more do?

Every clever turn of phrase and hummable melody has been sung
Has been written at least once in every key
So come kids put down your pens, step away from your guitars
Don't you worry we'll be fine without you singing in our bars

Cause there's too many songs already
What good'll one more do?
What good'll one more do?

I'll tell you what if you've got something to say
Put it in a twitter or mass email
Maybe in a hundred years when the internet's all full
We'll be needing songs again
But until then...

Food and clothes and medicine; the world needs many things
But songs we have aplenty
Especially ones that don't rhyme

Cause there's too many songs already
What good'll one more do?
What good'll one more do?
