Music: “Circle Sky” by Michael Nesmith
My old hits
Bored to bits
Same old thing
Oh, do I have to play that once again?
Dear God, do I have to play that once again?
Played this song
For so long
But now I have to play this once again!
Yes, now I have to play this once again!
It’s a very tedious thing
But no one out there understands
But I sing what I must just to please
All my fans….all my fans
Trapped by my
Grin and play
And now I’ve gotten through it once again
Thank goodness I have gotten to the end.
This song was written on the way back from seeing Mickey Dolenz in concert, and I was asking myself “What on earth must it be like to have to play the same songs, over and over again, for thirty years?” In a way, I can guess. There are times I look at all my collected songs and think “I hate everything in this book and I don’t want to play any of it.”
