Winston Montgomery
The Songwriter Never Gets The Girl
 
Lyrics
Verse 1:
I've searched my thesaurus for hours at a time trying to find that perfect word
I've strummed the same three chords all night long looking for a melody I thought I heard
There're no bright lights or opening nights, it's a pencil pushing world
And that's why the songwriter never gets the girl

Verse 2:
I told ideals to take a hike a couple of eons ago
I'd sell out my best friend in a heartbeat to hear my song on the radio
I've stolen so many ideas that it makes me want to hurl
And that's why the songwriter never gets the girl

Bridge:
I know I don't sing too well A7
My guitar licks sound like hell Dmin
I don't look like no movie star G
My charisma won't take me far C-- E

So I pray to Hoagy that before too long A7
Some smooth cheeked boy will sing my song Ab--C#min
So I can stay at home in my room F#
And hire some hotshot to plug my tunes B7

Verse 3
Even a bridesmaid gets a chance to catch the bouquet
The wingman inherits the girl that the hero has tossed away
But the songwriter's left with the oyster shell while the performer gets the pearl
And that's why the songwriter never gets the girl
(Except for occasional English major)
And that's why the songwriter never gets the girl
