I HATE MUSIC

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


                  I know you've all seen movies
                  about the world of film.
                  and we always read news stories
                  about how the press is such a gem.
                  and the libraries are full of books
                  on the literary art.
                  and there are so many stage shows
                  about theatre.

                  they all seem to say:
                  the blank-blank industry is wonderful.
                  I'm part of the blank-blank industry.
                  therefore,
                  I am wonderful.
                  now I bet you think
                  that just because I'm up here singing a song
                  that I'm gonna sing you a song
                  about how wonderful
                  the music industry is.
                  I'm not gonna do that at all.
                  I'm not like that.

                  I hate music!
                  I mean what good does it do?
                  they say it soothes the savage beast.
                  well, let them all sing at the zoo.
                  all those nasally nostrilled noses
                  blowing in microphones:
                  the hills are alive
                  with the sound of
                  mucous.

                  I hate music!
                  consider the symphony.
                  in all there's maybe forty strings,
                  four strings on each instrument.
                  and where do catgut strings come from?
                  one hundred and sixty cats!
                  the hills are alive
                  but the cats are dyin'.

                  you'll never hear me say:
                  the music industry is wonderful.
                  I'm part of the music industry.
                  therefore,
                  I am, uh...

                  I hate music!
