"So Many People" as written by and Stephen Sondheim....
Everything under the sun
Going to hell
In an episode of SNL
Watch it on the TV
You ugly girl
You can not sing
Can't even lip sync
Apparently money
Can even buy you dignity
Never wanna forget
In a couple of days
It doesn't matter
What they say in the press
I guess I'm not the only one
Feeling the itch
'Cause they're given away the billboard award
To some phony little

So what would you know
About how your song goes
Just let that table roll

So many faces
Of so many people
Are covered in stupid
And all they wanna do is get in
I know that your parents
Are brother and sister
It's idiot season
So let the Hunting begin'
Let the hunting begin
Let the hunting begin
Let the hunting begin

Since practice wasn't on the list
Clearly talent doesn't exist
Maybe joking of buying you
A set of bigger tits
Apologize to the world
And admit that you were wrong
Who's dick you'd have to suck to
Get the number one song

So what would you know
About how your song goes
Just let that table roll

So many faces
Of so many people
Are covered in stupid
And all they wanna do is get in
I know that your parents
Are brother and sister
It's idiot season
So let the Hunting begin'
Let the hunting begin
Let the hunting begin
Let the hunting begin

Well
Who's this little girl
Who's got my elbow in her mouth
To keep herself from coming out
Said you're daddy's little girl
Nobody knows
What we all know

So many faces
Of so many people
Are covered in stupid
And all they wanna do is get in
I know that your parents
Are brother and sister
It's idiot season
So let the hunting begin
I know that your parents
Are brother and sister
It's idiot season
So let the hunting begin
So many faces
Of so many people
Are covered in stupid
And all they wanna do is get in
I know that your parents
Are brother and sister
It's idiot season
So let the hunting begin

    General CommentI'll take a wild guess and say it's about Ashlee Simpson and how people stupidly buy the crap she puts out.

    General Comment"maybe joking of buying you

    I believe this line is actually "Maybe Joe can buy you a set of bigger tits."

    If I'm not mistaken, Joe Simpson is the father and manager of Ashlee and Jessica Simpson.

    General CommentI am hearing a few things differently:

    "never wanna forget" sounds like "Everyone'll forget"

    "watch it on the tv" sounds like "busted on the TV"

    "im not the only one" sounds like "am I the only one"

    "said you're daddys little girl" sounds like "so your daddy's really proud"

    and I agree with the "Joe" suggestion above.

    General CommentAnd something that's bugging me -- if you Google search for these lyrics, you find a bunch of sites like lyricstime, smartlyrics, etc. that all have the exact same lyrics, right down to the typo in the second verse ('pratice').

    What's up with that?

    General CommentThis song is a personal favorite of mine. I don't think this is a direct stab to Ashley Simpson.. but it definitely includes her in the mesh of things. I think the Ashley Simpson lip sync scandal is probably the initial reason for writing this song.. and expands out to all the other pop punky pop shit that all sounds the same, that SO MANY PEOPLE listen to nonstop.
