"Four Chord Wonder" as written by and Kris Roe....
How many bands have wrote this song before?
I can name at least fifty
I bet you could name a hundred more.
There's over a couple thousand chord progressions around
Will someone tell me who decided
They'd run this one into the ground?!

I'm putting a stop to it once and for all
I'm putting my fist right through the wall
I'm telling you one and all
You better not write this stupid song again
"I've got a little plan, so listen up
We could write a four chord wonder
And make a million bucks"
No need to mention names cause' you know who you are.
Take word of my advice or I'll break your guitar
I think it's time to set things straight
I just write the song I hate.
And, I'll write it again and again and again

    General Commentthe beat is ment to be similar to hey kid cos theyre taking the piss outa themselves
    if you read the booklet to the re-released anywhere but here it says the have "I just wrote the song I hate.
    And, I'll write it again and again and again" at the end of this song, then its followed by hey kid which is what they are talking about

    reading over it none of that made sense
    oh well
