I've got a rhyming dictionary
So some of my lines are pretty hairy
I thought it would be legendary
I could rake it in like Richard Berry

Except that he was screwed out of his royalties
When he wrote "Louie Louie"
But he didn't have a little dictionary like mine
And that is probably why

Because rhymes don't make you money
You'll be out of pocket all your life
If you want your life to be sunny
Then get a job and get a wife
'Cos songwriting doesn't pay
I waste time every day
Writing songs
That no one will ever hear!

I've got a new thesaurus
It'll help me out no end with the chorus
It'll be about the ancient god Horus
or the star sign now known as Taurus

Except that nobody wants to hear
About weirdo stuff like that
So if i want to be a superstar
I'd better keep it all under my hat
