A Really Long Boring Song

dedicated to open mikers everywhere!

The only thing worse than a boring song
Is a really long boring song.
Some people don't know when to quit;
They must go on and on!
And they don't seem to mind a bit
When we begin to yawn,
For they don't think there's anything wrong
with a really long boring song!

Verse 1.
They'll sing about the environment,
About their sad childhood;
They think each word was heaven-sent,
They'd use more if they could!
If two words fit where one was meant,
Than that's all to the good;
And if three will help you vent,
Why, then you really should!

Repeat Chorus

Verse 2.
They'll run twenty minutes or darn near
And say they've more to do;
Then proceed to bend your ear
With something that's brand new.
That's time enough to have a beer,
We'll slip out for a brew.
So I'll cut this one short right here--
I don't want to bore you, too!

Repeat chorus...or would that make it too long and boring? :)
