lyrics

Your song's too long
Your song's too long
Your song's too long
Your song's too long

You opened up nice, with two verses and a chorus
But right after that you started to bore us
You were four minutes into your first guitar solo
When I looked at my watch and it said "TIME TO GO"

Had a couple of drinks and I went to the can
Came out to find you still stuck in the same jam
Your keyboardist locked in a one chord vamp
Maybe his hand has developed a cramp

Your chops appear real, like the Shroud of Turin
But I'm sure I've heard that lick ten times before
If I don't fall asleep I'll hear it ten times more
Like astronauts that circle back through golden clouds of their own urine
I'm beginning to feel like the needle is stuck
In a groove thats a trend no one onstage can buck

Your song's too long
Your song's too long
Your song's too long
Your song's too long

Down at the front the beery crowd was all cheering
But I was like Ambrose Bierce, disappearing
Your drummer seemed the model of modern restraint
But the spotlight went on him and suddenly he ain't

My songs all top out at two minutes thirty
If I play any longer it makes me feel dirty
My lyrics concise, my solos succinct
I just took one now but you missed it, you blinked....

Your song's too long
Your song's too long
Your song's too long
Your song's too long
