I never thought that you would
Love me the way that you do
I never thought that you would
Love me half as much as I do.
You say you want to know
Everything about me - well here you go,
But if you want it girl, you got it;
It's all right here in my box set.
I never thought that words like
Product would ever leave my lips,
But something happened to me
Somewhere that made me lose my grip.
Maybe it's the lack of inspiration
That makes me stoop,
Or maybe it's a lack of
Remuneration; I can't recoup.
But if you want it folks, you got it;
It's all right here in my box set.
Disc One
It's where we've begun, it's all
My greatest hits, and if you are a
Fan then you know that you've
Already got 'em.
Disc Two
It was all brand new, an album's
Worth of songs, but we had to
Leave the whole disc blank
Because some other label
Bought 'em.
Disc Three
This is really me in a grade
School play; I had about a
Hundred thousand lines, bur of
Course I forgot 'em.
I never thought there'd be days like this,
There was always someone at my door.
I never thought I would ever miss
And the crowds would always holler for more.
But now it seems all that people
Want is what I used to be
And every time I try to do
Something new, all they want is 1973.
I never thought I'd be regretful of
All my past success
But some stupid number one hit
Single has got me in this mess.
You can put it on every
Compilation - that's alright.
You can hear it on the oldies radio
Station every night.
And if you want it again, you got it
- it's right here in my box set.
Disc Four
Never released before, and you
Can tell why; it's just some demos
I recorded in my basement.
Disc Five
I was barely alive, I was
Coughing up a lung, so they had to
Use a special computer as my
Replacement.
Disc Six
A dance remix, so I can catch the
Latest trend and it'll make you
Scratch your head and wonder
Where my taste went.
So now my fans are crying sellout,
They say I've lost my touch.
They say I should just get the hell
Out before I do too much.
Hear my songs in an ad for a
Bathroom cleanser - they say it's greed,
And now I'm wondering where my
Friends are in this time of need.
But if you change your mind and
Buy it, I hope you enjoy my new box.
I hope you enjoy my new box, I
Hope you enjoy
My new box set.
