"Marathon Man" lyrics revised 2003...


Recommended Posts

Sing Along to the first verse and chorus so far:

15 YEARS THERE'S BEEN VERY FEW SONGS,

THAT I WANT THE WORLD TO HEAR.

RATHER LOUNGE ON THE COUCH WITH THE KIDS,

HAVE THE WIFE FETCH ME A BEER.

SOMEONE'S CALLING MY NAME.

IT'S FROM EC.COM.

MOST REQUESTS ARE THE SAME,

"JUST CREATE A DAMN SONG!"

MARATHON MAN, WHEN I'M WRITING.

MARATHON MAN, STOP YOUR WHINING.

I WILL WRITE WHEN I WANT,

'CAUSE I'M RICH, NOW I DON'T GIVE A DAMN.

I'M A MARATHON MAN....HA!...

I was hoping Bernie would laugh at this and make milk come up through his nose...You know, give him that moustache, the hard way.

Notice how each word stays true to the original syllable placements from Eric's music. Eric's music inspires me. It took less than 30 minutes to do these lyrics. When I write lyrics to my own melodies, why does it sometimes take months? Darlene writes complete song lyrics to Eric's songs. I bet she did it fast too. There's something special about that little Cleveland shut-in's music. He's got special gifts ...like...Rainman wink

You're absolutely right, Tony! Eric's music is so

easy to write lyrics to. I had them in 15 minutes.

Now, let's talk about MY projects--THREE YEARS, and I can't get them off my desk!!!! I have a love-hate relationship with my songs. I love them,

then I try to "perfect" them--and almost hate them for awhile, and put them up again.

Eric's melodies are so free-flowing and his rhythms so great, they're magnets for language and

creativity.
