Give Me Something to Sing About

Give me something to write about
Give me something to sing
Been racking my heart and my head all day long
And I just can’t find anything

I’m tired of singing of broken hearts
Or the woman I had last night
I’m fed up with singing about
The world’s constant struggles and fights

I just want to sing something
That everyone will like
And not have to sing the blues
I want you to listen
To what I’m singing
And not stare at my blue suede shoes

I don’t want you to hear me because it’s cool
Or because your friend told you to
And I don’t want you to listen because
You want to be different
Listen ’cause you like the tune

Give me something to write about
Give me something to sing
I’ve been scratching and searching all day long
And I just can’t find a thing

I don’t want to sing about rock ‘n’ roll
Or a fast car that I’ll never have
I don’t want to sing about a place that’s not there
Or a world that’ll never be…
