Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

This is not a song

This song was created for Game of Bands round 223 : "Music Imitates Art"

Lyrics:

This Is Not A Song
Inspired by Rene Magrite's Treachery of Images


You better stop listening
Better stop singing along
For despite the evidence
This is not a song

There are no verses here
There are no words being sung
The drums are not being beat
Guitar strings aren't being strummed

There is no chorus approaching
No release coming headlong
Better turn off your speakers
Cos this is not a song

This is not a song
Do not sing along
This is not a song
Do not sing along

There are no chords being played
No bassline walking along
And I am not singing any words
Cos this is not a song

There is no call-and-response
No lyrics spelling it out
Music theory is useless
When there ain't no music about

There is no solo approaching
No melodies, weak or strong
Better unplug your headphones
For this is not a song

This is not a song (This is not a song)
Do not sing along (Do not sing along)
This is not a song (This is not a song)
Do not sing along

No solo here.
Nope, this part is definitely not a guitar solo.

Why are you still here?
Listening to this song
I mean, um, er, non-song
I didn't mean to say "song"

Just think about your parents
They must be really sad
This listening to nonsense
Must make you look quite mad

This doesn't have any notes
No keyboard lines to be seen
And my voice isn't singing
So let's see what we've gleaned

Despite all the evidence
That I am clearly wrong
I'll keep repeating this mantra:
This is not a song!

This is not a song (This is not a song)
Do not sing along (Do not sing along)
This is not a song (This is not a song)
Do not sing along

This is not a song (This is not a song)
Do not sing along (Do not sing along)
This is not a song (This is not a song)
Do not sing along
[Exit]
