This song's just six words long
This song's just six words long
This song's just six words long
This song's just six words long

Couldn't think of any lyrics
No, I never wrote the lyrics
So I'll just sing any old lyrics
That come to mind, child
You really need words
Whole lotta rhyming words
You gotta rhyme so many words, mmm...
To do it, to do it, to do it, to do it
To do it, to do it right, child

This song's just six words long
This song's just six words long
This song's just six words long
This song's just six words long

I know that you're probably sore
'Cause I didn't write any more
I just didn't get to complete it
So that's why I gotta repeat it

This song's just six words long (six words long)
This song's just six words long (six words long)

Oh I make a lotta money!
They pay me a ton of money
They're payin' me plenty of money
To sing this song, child
I gotta fill time
Three minutes worth of time
Oh, how will I fill so much time? Mmm...
I'll throw in a solo, a solo, a solo
A solo, a solo here

This song's just six words long
This song's just six words long
This song's just six words long
This song's just six words long

This song's got nothing to say
But I'm recording it anyway
I know if I put my mind to it
I know I could find a good rhyme here

Oh, you gotta have-a music
You need really catchy music
This song has got plenty of music
But just six words, child

And so I'll sing'em over
And over and over and over
And over and over and over, Mmm...
And over and over and over
And over and over and over again

Six words long...
Six words long...
Six words long...
Six words long...
