Quickie Ditty (A New Stage at R-B-C)
© Erick Duran Manard, 2021

VERSE 1 –
Well…they say my songs play too damn long
When all they want is a jingle
But an artist does things his own peculiar way
To entertain I’d rather not feign
Nor compete to write a hit single
But may this suffice and play nice
I won’t sing all live long day (what’d he say?!)

CHORUS 1 –
So here’s your ditty
It’s just a quickie ditty
Nothing too fancy or complicated
Just a simple pop song for you
‘Let’s have a quickie’ (they say)
Oh, here’s your fricking quickie ditty (ole’)
It ain’t the size they say that matters
But how well I can turn this screw

VERSE 2 –
Well…they say radio runs the show
The masses have ears to tickle
But I’m true to myself, though you may think this a bit crass
Nevertheless I’ll sing in jest
I needn’t earn me your blasted nickel
I’ll mimic what you want, “what you really really want”
While you pucker up and kiss my ass (what a gas!)

CHORUS 2 –
So here’s your ditty
It’s just a quickie ditty
Nothing too fancy or complicated
Just a simple pop song for you
‘Let’s have a quickie’ (they say)
Oh, here’s your fricking quickie ditty (ole’)
It ain’t the size they say that matters
But how well I can turn this screw

BRIDGE (2x)
La de da da de
La da de de da
La da de de
La de da da dumb de dumb

CHORUS 3 –
So here’s your ditty
It’s just a quickie ditty
Nothing too fancy or complicated
Just a simple pop song for you
‘Let’s have a quickie’ (they say)
Oh, here’s your fricking quickie ditty (ole’)
It ain’t the size they say that matters
But how well I can turn this screw
If integrity is not the main matter
Then I’ll wave my finger too…at you! (Gesundheit!)
