Story

I wrote this after a long road trip where I was having a hard time staying awake and the only thing I could get on the radio was the syndicated "Delilah" program- ALL LOVE SONGS (Zzzzzzzzzzz).

Lyrics

I don’t like corny schlocky sappy songs About the way it was when you were mine But every time I turn on the radio It's the only kind of song I can find On every station an irritating whiny steel guitar I've nearly worn out the seek button on the radio in my car I don’t like corny schlocky sappy songs About the way it was when you were mine But every time I turn on the radio It's the only kind of song I can find Some guy in a cubicle trying to sound beautiful He breaks out his thesaurus throws in another chorus He took songwriting classes He's writing for the masses That's where it all begins I will not be sucked in By a corny schlocky stupid tacky boring song about the way it was when you were mine every time I turn on the radio it's the only kind of song I can find Between the news and the preacher and the shouting car ads It's hard to find a song at all and then I’m really mad when it’s a Boring stupid crappy sappy tacky song about the way it was when you were mine About how when you kissed me I melted inside How when we parted part of me died How I often wondered if you'd ever come back I'd never write about that Because… I don’t write corny schlocky stupid songs About the way it was when you were mine Every time I turn on the radio It's the only kind of song I can find I don’t like corny schlocky lame pathetic sappy pointless unsubstantial vapid boring tedious monotonous long and drawn out Songs about the days when you were mine
