Someone with the best intent
Went and killed the president
Because he had the influence
To massacre 10,000 men
Wake me up from this great dream, I can't believe my eyes

And some one tried to jail the king
For the way he liked to sleep
But you can sleep with anything
When your pockets are that deep
If you think you can sing this song better man, go on and try
But you'll never be able to give them everything that they

Hey! You asked for one
So I wrote you this song
I want to give it to you
Play! It in your ears
You're gonna learn all the words
You're going to sing along too
Take! My every thought
Wrap it up in a box
I'm going to feed it to you
I'll say! A thousand words
To get you out of your shirt
I want to get into you

Look at you all floating there
Half-suspended in the air
Never been more beautiful
Then how you look above that chair
But get down from there now, you're scaring me, you're playing with your life

There's nothing here that we can't fix
There's no one here that we can't trick
Baby I can take a hit
Believe me I can take a hit
If you think you can love this girl better man, go on and try
But you'll never be able to give her everything that she

Hey! You asked for one
So I wrote you this song
I want to give it to you
Play! It in your ears
You're gonna learn all the words
You're going to sing along too
Take! My every thought
Wrap it up in a box
I'm going to feed it to you
This is! The anthem of anyone who has loved then turned around and been used

Every one is so enraged
Because you know we're all to blame
But in this house there are no maids
So let's lie in this mess we've made
We thought we could get there much faster, we all love to drive
If you think you can get somewhere better man, here is the

Hey! You asked for one
So I wrote you this song
I want to give it to you
Play! It in your ears
You're gonna learn all the words
You're going to sing along too
Take! My every thought
Wrap it up in a box
I'm going feed it to you
This is! The anthem of anyone who has loved then turned around and been used

    General CommentI just wanted to mention that in the first round of the chorus, the last two lines go:

    "I'll Say! A thousand words to get you out of your shirt I want to get into you"

    Anyway.. to me, this song says you're never going to make everybody happy- whether you're a king, a president, a frontman in a band, in a relationship, or simply driving a car. If you're in any kind of position or task in which people can observe you, you're going to have your critics and haters.
