"The Girls Don't Care" as written by and Eef Barzelay....
Don't extend the solo
Lay the groove too deep
Try not to sing the words
As if you're mumbling in your sleep

Don't say that you won't do it
'Cause it's been done before
Don't start a revolution
Just because you're feeling bored

The girls don't care
That you ache to be free
You see, the girls just want
A sweet melody

Don't quote 'Five Easy Pieces'
'TiVo Cool Hand Luke'
Don't talk about how
God is dead and love is just a fluke

Don't listen to Frank Zappa
Late Coltrane, Faust or Can
Just take that twisted heart of yours
And lay it in her hand

The girls don't care
That you ache to be free
You see, the girls just want
A sweet melody

The girls don't care
That you yearn to be free
Girls just want
A sweet, a sweet melody

    General CommentI think this song is genius!

    It seems to me to be some compilation of advice for writing music, things that listeners want to hear. But that's not really what the song is about...it's all a metaphor for pursuing a relationship, and how that process is similar to the process of writing a song. I suppose a songwriter can fall into the trap of trying to draw too much from their influences and over-complicate an otherwise simple song with a good melody.

    The basic message in the chorus is 'Don't over-do it' in your efforts to pursue the girl, and don't try to be someone else - because they just want a sweet melody.
