With Apologies To Randy Newman

by

Watching The Defectives has been in existence for two years now.  The actual date was a week or so ago.   I’ve thought about how best to commemorate this, but this Randy Newman tune keeps playing in my head.  With some slight lyrical changes.

I have nothing left to say
But I’m going to say it anyway
Thirty years upon a stage
And now I hear the people say
Why won’t he go away?

I have a family to support
But surely, that is no excuse
I’ve nothing further to report
Time you spend with me
Is time you lose

I always thought that I would know
When it was time to quit
That when I lost a step or two or three or four or five
I’d notice it
Now that I’ve arrived here safely
I find my talent is gone
Why do I go on and on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on and on

When will I end this bitter game?
When will I end this cruel charade?
Everything I write all sounds the same
Each blog post that I’m making
Sounds like a post that I made
Just not as good!

I’m dead but I don’t know it
(He’s dead He’s dead)
I’m dead but I didn’t know
(He’s dead He’s dead)
I’m dead but I don’t know it
(He’s dead He’s dead)
Please don’t tell me so
Please don’t tell me so
(YOUR"RE DEAD!!!)

    You sound like a sleep-deprived new father. Oh yeah, you are. Surely you’re not thinking about giving up WTD? How will I know what is going on with you?

    Okay… I’ve always said that the reason I haven’t carved out my own little space on the web is that I’d probably post something that would cause me to lose my job. Now there’s a second reason: my mother would probably find it.
