Babble On
Bill Mumy

When I walked in the room

I was feeling so fine

But in twenty two minutes

I felt like no friend of mine

 

You took what I gave

And reduced it to waste

Your smug big money mouth

Left a bad sour taste

 

            And you babble on, you babble on,

            You babble on, you babble on at me

 

You preen like a cock

Like you created this earth

You're just a nickel in the meter, man

Not much is all that youíre worth

 

Today youíre on top

But that will not always be

One day youíll get what you give

One day youíll feel just like me

 

            And you babble on,  you babble on

            You babble on, you babble on at me

 

I feel sorry for the ones down the hall

Who kiss your ass everyday

I wonder why the rules change in this game

I wonder why we even play

 

So we sit back in the night

And watch it all on TV

It looks so easy from the sofa

I guess thatís how it should be

 

But did a lesson get learned

Will justice carry the day

Does the hero return

Or is it all just O.J.?

 

            As you babble on, you babble on

            You babble on, you babble on

            You babble on, you babble on at me
