Is it ok if I sing while you are talking? (A D E)
'Cos I got this song I really want to sing. (A D E)
It's a song about nothing very special. (D E A)
But I like it and it's special to me! (D E A)
I know your conversation is important. (C#m D6)
Far more so than this song could ever be. (C#m D6)
And I'm sorry if you find this song distracting. (C#m D6)
But I'm gonna sing it...anyway! (D E A)
It's obvious to me that you like talking.
And those around you really need to hear
every word that comes to mind from your subconscious.
But if you shut up, I think you'd hear them cheer!
Your stamp collection sounds like it's impressive.
Your uncle's second wife: a real dream.
The colour of your bicycle is stunning.
And your culinary skills rule supreme!
The sound of your own voice is most melodic.
You love to hear its message loud and clear.
To a silence, it's a necessary tonic.
But to us: it's verbal diarrhoea!
Now this song of mine is very nearly finished.
You see it really didn't take so very long.
So if you'd like to say something that's really special,
nick off, and put it in a song!
