Say my name Say my name
My name is Craig David
And don't you forget it
Say my name Say my name
Come on now, it's been minutes

Why don't you say my name once more?

Say my name Say my name
My name is Craig David
And don't you forget it
Say my name Say my name
Just hurry up and say it

Some phychologists say that I have
An irrational love of my name
But I don't think the same
I think that storys real lame
'Cos what's irrational about this?
Just try and make a list

I remember in times gone
People used to say my name all the time
But now those times have gone
Which I think is really wrong
So if you want to stop this crime
Then sing along with this rhyme

When I take someone out to dine
Then my mind is not on whether there late
Or the contents of my plate
It's on how much longer I'll have to wait
Before my mind they do abate
By just speaking tbose words - Craig David

All I want, is for everyone
To say my name every day
But today, they just ain\'t doing that
Every other word is something else
And that wont do - oh no!
You gotta say my name once again

In your car say my name
Then say my name once again
Don\'t try saying something else
\'Cos that won\'t hit the mast
When two seconds have passed
Since you said my name last

Say my name Say my name
My name is Craig David
And don\'t you forget it
Say my name Say my name
Come on now, it\'s been minutes

Why don\'t you say my name once more?

Say my name Say my name
My name is Craig David
And don\'t you forget it
Say my name Say my name
Just hurry up and say it

If your standing by your phone
Pick it up and say Craig David
It doesn't matter who-oo-oo
That you say my name too-oo-oo
Just as long as you say it
Then I'll even pay for it

I don't care when you say Craig David
I don't care how you say Craig David
I just care that you say Craig David
Come on now don't be a tit
Just you keep saying it

Some people would now say
This song is getting rather long
But it has to be this way
Or else it's really wrong
'Cos then they might not say my name
Which will be a cause for me to complain

Say my Name Say my name
My name is....
Craig David

Craig David

(Repeats Countless Times To Fade)

    General CommentI really like the structure of this song, I think it's about being in the spotlight of the media. Definitely the best song Craig ever wrote.

    General CommentI believe this is the song Craig is most proud of writing, he wrote it as some personal advice for his fan. It will probably be the first single off his next album, provisionally titled, 'My Name Is Craig David'.

    General CommentMaybe your right, this is interesting, what do other people think.

    I really like the verse:

    'Dont try saying something else
    'Cos that won't hit the mast
    When two seconds have passed
    Since you said my name last '

    Incredible rhyming ability. I have spent months doin some extensive research into the esoteric mast reference and I believe I have found the answer - this is something that sailors used to say when they went sailing the seven seas of the solent in days gone by, just off portsmouth I believe.

    It is a euphynesuym, whilst simultaneously also being a metaphor if you like (and who doesn't on a Tuesday like today). I know what it means....:-you know what it means-:....what more need be said, none more said!

    All of this contributes shitloads to Craig's transcendant perspicacity for modern day life.

    I thought it was well harsh when that big eejit who used to be in that band with the funny keyboard guy said he was a shit-for-soul little motherhubbard.

    General CommentI can't believe there have been no more comments on this masterpiece. Call yourself fans? You should be ashamed of yourselves.
