"Write What You Know" as written by Torquil John Campbell and Christopher Allen Seligman....
Write what you know
Keep the story funny
Have a happy ending
Make the female sexy
Sing it for the people
Hope they sing along
Yeah, they're gonna love it
And I will think it's strong
Fall into a corner, writer
Watch your favorite show
Pray to God to see her
Write what you know
Write what you know
Write what you know
Write what you know

Go and be a pony
In the pony show
Dance with other ponies
Got your fuckin' dope
Time entwines around you
Leads you through the door
Telephone is silent
We don't like calls anymore

Forget how to cry
The future is the dark
The future is the dark
Write what you know
Write what you know
Write what you know
Write what you know
Write what you know
Write what you know
Write what you know
Write what you know
Write what you know
Write what you know

Write what you know
Keep that story funny
Have a happy ending
Make the female sexy
This ending is so sexy
This ending is so sexy
This ending is so
This ending is so
This ending is so
This ending is so sexy
This ending is so
This ending is so sexy

    General CommentAmazing. My favorite Stars song. Though some lyrics are missing/wrong:

    after “we don’t like calls anymore” is the line “Try not to lie, it tends to leave a mark”
    and “the future is dark” should be “if you showed us the door” (x2).

    This song is almost trip hop, or a NIN song except more melodic. It’s like an outtake from Kid A. Combines a synth, strings, haunting vocals, and a beat, what more could you want? I’m guessing the meaning has something to do with idealizing romance. And ponies… drug dealing ponies.

    General CommentThis song definitely grows on you.
    I think its kindof making fun of the typical song, and when certain phrase are sung over and over its almost like they are saying "insert any chorus/verse of any other song here."
    At the beginning the writer is thinking "write something everyone can relate (what you know), make it sexy (include some sort of sexual/love reference which everyone loves), and the audience will DEFINITELY love it" no matter what the actual meaning or words are.
    The pony show is any concert where bands are on display- we all know most singers/writers are on drugs. Its entertainment for the masses.
    I like the end because shes saying "the ending is so sexy" in almost a mock sexy voice. Its like any song that they play at a club where everyone is out on the dance floor humping each other and whatnot.
