isn't this like divine intervention? i got the idea to do "500 songs" as i ran a count on my songs and discovered they were probably over 500. then when i ran another count, i found they were exactly 500.

yeah, i've deleted some, but this is my 500th on the site - unless i skipped some songs in the song index page.

will i wake up? will i know it's not a dream?
i wanna be the man remaking every tune
i want no doubt, and i know i wanna be
i wanna be the man who wrote the songs anew

it makes sense, cuz well i know i loved to read
i loved to hear vocabu-sense of every school
a fourth-grader, when i'd know the top 40
i'd wanna "eat it," al had made my view askew

and i have mauled 500 writers
and i would scorn 500 more
with a rerun and a mock of what those writers'
hot songs are standing for

in song-birthing, yes i know i oughtta see
the love to hear vocab and words and phonics used
and if money comes in for the work i do
i'll thank utmostly my mom, i read at two

when i fumble with a bonehead parody
anong the half-a-grand, who's stung but so excused?
and if i grow old, well i know my parodies
are gonna give me laughs and something vogue to do

and i have mauled 500 writers
and i would scorn 500 more
with a rerun and a mock of what those writers'
hot songs are standing for

when i'm lonely, well i know i'm gonna be
i'm gonna be the man who won't be sad and blue
when i'm breathing, yes i know i'm gonna dream
i'm gonna dream about the rhyming i will do

i have no doubt that i know i wanna be
i wanna be the man who molds the older tunes
and if i fumble with a bonehead parody
i'm gonna see the grand i've done and be excused

i'm gonna be the man who fucks the older tunes
