LYRIC
Song Seller

Verse 1

This is just a little memo
To remind you of my demo
Put it in the mail a week ago
Haven't heard it on the radio though

Chorus

Good morning, song seller
I suppose we've got it made
You're such a charming fellow
Why can't you get this record played?
Record played?
Record played?
Record played?
Record played?

Verse 2

I got two sleeves, I tore off The Beatles
Had 'em sewn on with a magic needle
Now, I can play like George and Ringo
Haven't heard it on the radio, no

Chorus

Good morning, song seller
I suppose we've got it made
You're such a charming fellow
Why can't you get this record played?
Record played?
Record played?
Record played?
Record played?

Bridge

Waiting around for the devil
I'm gonna make me a record deal
I'm gonna need me a real big wheel
Ooh, somebody tell it to me real, now

Verse 3

I'll cut you a track that's truly truckin'
If you want me to, I'll sing about fucking
Sing about it fast, sing about it slow
Wanna hear it in the radio, though

Chorus

Good morning, song seller
I suppose we've got it made
You're such a charming fellow
Why can't you get this record played?
Record played?
Record played?
Record played?
Record played?
