Default No One Cares About Songwriters


Their names in parentheses
In tiny print
Nobody want to
Give them a cent
The singers get love
The bands get laid
The poor songwriters
Never get paid

No One Cares About Songwriters
Faceless and unknown
They're anonymous
Living in shadows
No One Cares About Songwriters
Unless it's Dylan
Or Paul McCartney
Who've made a killing

They seldom get credit
And when they do
It's never enough
Never their due
This way of things
Is so wrong
Cos we all know
It starts with song

Elvis got the girls
Though he didn't write
The brains are called nerds
It just ain't right

No One Cares About Songwriters
Faceless and unknown
They're anonymous
Living in shadows
No One Cares About Songwriters
Unless it's Dylan
Or Paul McCartney
Who've made a killing
