"I-Spy" as written by and Samuel Lloyd Duckworth....
I spy with my little eye something that begins with 'I don't care',
That this song, has a melody.
Or that the beats are not complex,
I'm just trying to make you sing,
And not be perplexed.
It doesn't mean any less.

Face, in a crowd.
If you don't care then why are you singing out?
Face, in a crowd.
If you don't care then why are you singing out?
Why are you singing out?

And I spy with my little eye something that begins with 'I have just',
I have just begun to realise.
Put on my favourite song,
Forgot this style instructs you to sing aloud
Why don't you sing along?

It goes,
Face, in a crowd.
If you don't care then why are you singing out?
Face, in a crowd.
If you don't care then why are you singing out?
And I can hear you singing,
La la la la la la la la la laaa,
You're singing,
La la la la la laa.

It doesn't matter that this song has a simple tune,
Even though it's not what I'm supposed to do,
What I'm supposed to do,
What I'm supposed to doooo,
What I'm supposed to doooo...

It doesn't matter that this song has a simple tune,
Even though it's not what I'm supposed to do,
What I'm supposed to do.

And can you hear me going?
La la la la la la la la la laaa,
La la la la la la la la la laaa,

Now it doesn't matter that this song has a simple tune,
Even though it's not what I'm supposed to do,
What I'm supposed to do.

    General CommentIn my opinion it is simply saying that this is a song without a hidden depth- I think that is the whole point of the song, saying why does every song have to have a meaning, why can't it just be a song? Anyway everyone is welcome to their own opinion I think.

    General CommentThose lyrics up there are WRONG, so that may be leading some misconception. The lyrics say:

    And I spy with my little eye something that begins with 'I have just',
    I have just begin to realize.
    That all my favorite songs
    Regardless of style or structure are sing alongs.
    Why don't you sing along?

    General Commenti really like this song, he's just saying songs dont always have to have double meanings, imagery and whatever. As long as you enjoy the song its all good.
