writer’s block blues

sat down to write a song
but nothing came out
for once in my life
i’ve got nothing to rant about
trying to make a record
and it’s close to being due
banging my head on a deadline
i got the writer’s block blues

thought i’d write about love
and where it went wrong
but the last thing we need
is a stupid love song
my head’s all dried up
i don’t have a clue
i’d do anything for a song
i got the writer’s block blues

i wrote down a few lines
but they were a joke
am i all washed up
artistically broke
producer keeps asking
which songs i’ll use
i lie to him i’m ready
i got the writer’s block blues

i lie to him i’m ready
oh the writer’s block blues
