Lyrics

I write 30 songs a day but they're all bad
I can't remember the last good one I had
I wrote "Peggy Sue" in '52
But Buddy calls up and says "That wasn't you ooh ooh"
Yeah I write 30 songs a day but they're all bad

I write 30 songs a day but they're all bad
It's so long between the good ones it's just sad
I wrote "Ode to Billie Jean" in '83
I got sued by "Michael" and Bobby Gentry
I write 30 songs a day but they're all bad

30 songs a day and they're all bad

I write 30 songs a day and they're not good
You gotta believe I'd do better if I could
Cos' I work all day just to make 'em rhyme
And I'd work some more but I run out of.... patience
Yeah I write 30 songs a day and they're all bad

Well I wish the world would take a look
At all my songs, at all my hooks
Cos' I've a ton and I'd have one more
If I could just think of another chord

If I could just come up with one
I would retire and bask in the sun
But I write 30 songs a day and they're all bad
30 songs a day and they're all bad
