Originality is overrated
If something's good it shouldn't matter if it's new
So why do people get so aggravated
When someone sounds a lot like other people do?
So take me to another time
Where plagiarism ain't no crime
We've got a right to join the fray

Though we've got nothing new to say
Nothing new to say
You can be Oasis and I can be Green Day
Nothing new to say, nothing new to say
The Beatles and the Buzzcocks have already had their day
They've got nothing new to say

Well there's nothing wrong with imitation
It's the sincerest form of flattery, I'm told
So then why does it cause such consternation
When something new sounds just like something else that's old?
You know the rules as well as me
Each time you hear the chord of E
You know what's coming up is A

Because there's nothing new to say
Nothing new to say
Tons of bands sound just like us across the USA
Nothing new to say, nothing new to say
So listen to the masters and acquire all their habits
And if you're lucky you could be another Lenny Kravitz
Are you gonna go his way?
He's got nothing new to say

We've all got nothing new to say
Nothing new to say
I make fun of others but I'm just as bad as they
Nothing new to say, nothing new to say
So listen to your favorite bands, assimilate their highlights
And if you're lucky you could be the next Stone Temple Pilots
It made them what they are today
There's just nothing new to say
Nothing new to say
Nothing new to say
