lyrics

I wrote a new song and put it up on the web.
When I checked the next day, the number of plays, to my dismay was ten.
Maybe my music is not that great in the end.
Maybe I should sell myself to my friends.

And if you think this is true
There's one thing you can do

Please retweet this song
That's all they seem to say
Please retweet this song
Is the mantra of today
And if you agree
If you see the irony then
Please retweet this song

So many people are desperate to be heard.
They try to promote something they wrote to get upvotes on their network.
They urge us to click, to share and subscribe.
No need for humility, they wannabe a celebrity online.

And if you share this point of view
What I'd really like you to do is

Please retweet this song
That's all they seem to say
Please retweet this song
Is the mantra of today
And if you agree
If you see the irony then
Please retweet this song

Maybe this is not a new thing
The spread of personal marketing
People have always used their peers
To cultivate and propagate and advocate and disseminate and circulate their ideas

Please retweet this song
That's all they seem to say
Please retweet this song
Is the mantra of today
And if you agree
If you see the irony then
Please retweet this song

And as they keep sending metweets galore
The rest of us will endeavour not to measure our friends with a score
And as they grow ever greedier
My proposal is to focus on the social in social media.

And if you feel like this too
I think you know by now what to do

Please retweet this song
That's all they seem to say
Please retweet this song
Is the mantra of today
And if you agree
If you see the irony then
Please retweet this ...

Please retweet this song
That's all they seem to say
Please retweet this song
Is the mantra of today
And if you agree
If you see the irony then
Please retweet this, don't delete this, just retweet this song
