"Chain Letter" as written by and Todd Rundgren....
Don't take yourself too seriously
There are precious few things worth hating nowadays,
And none of them are me

I was only trying to say how things used to be
Til we grew up and we all went our separate ways
Looking for our own paths to immortality
This is how I thought I'd start my song
And it seems a little silly when I think of it
But now I'm so far along

And no one really wants to know that he's wrong
That his ears can't really hear or he's blind a bit
Or that he's really weak when he thinks that he is strong
Now I'm in the middle and I just don't know
If I'll make it any further if the words don't flow
When you live in silence any sound is dear
But for those who don't, take heart because the end is near
This is the ending of my song

It has made me blind and deaf and weak but most of all
It shows you that I'm wrong

For you see it's really twice this long
And if I should die tomorrow it will carry on

    General CommentThis is a tongue-in-cheek response to all the criticism he got from feminists for the lyrics to "We Gotta Get You a Woman". It's an early example of his wit and his habit of including at least one humorous song on almost every album.
