Earworm, earworm underneath my marigolds,
Underneath my plain brain pan,
driving me insane.
Earworm, earworm, why can't you just go away,
take your playlist out to play and
cling to someone else.
Earworm, earworm, I can hear you all the time,
You make my life a long soundtrack of
syllables that rhyme.
Earworm, earworm, what would I do if you're not there,
Where would I go to find my peace
without you as my guide.
Earworm, earworm, are you really so benign
why are you there all the time and make
me sing your rhymes.
Earworm, earworm, what happens if I just say no
How can I make you say goodbye and lose the
Earworm, earworm, humming is so part of me
It makes want to scratch and bleed and
sing along off key.
Earworm, earworm, do I have my own true thoughts
Or am I just a cipher of your
mass commercial rot.
Earworm, earworm, I'm a fish caught in a net
Make my breath sound out the tunes that
I can barely catch.
Earworm, earworm, how does this playlist capture
me. Does it keep me from noticing
life's rhythms and its time.
Earworm, earworm, wouldn't it you'd rather hear
songs that come from the outside
that make us laugh and tear.
Earworm, earworm, I think I'll plumb my list
for now, find a song of a whippoorwill
or a hummingbird's plant kiss.
Earworm, earworm, instead I stare at a blank wall,
drink my coffee and think nice thoughts
while music makes me sail.
Earworm, earworm, internal beat of a snare drum
that follows life inside of me, my mind
a cheerful hum.
Earworm, earworm, I hope you let me find my way
to happiness and joyfulness while you
sing and dance all day.
Earworm, earworm, others take a look at me,
hear me humming easily
and think of my content,
They don't know that I'm a slave
to harmony that does not stave
but keeps me in its glare.
