A Nice Chlorinated Feeling

I would like to say at this point in my career that I have won a songwriting competition. I guess maybe I don't really want to achieve that goal because I sat down the other day with the concerted intention to craft a hit and all that came out was obstinate blackness. Oh well, there's always tomorrow!

back in 1961 Paul McCartney turned to John Lennon and said:
let’s write a swimming pool, let’s write a swimming pool 
and we’ll be sipin’ cocktails at the top of the Standard
walkin’ ‘round town in a VIP lanyard
then they got out of Liverpool, yea they made a suit look cool

now John’s watery grave is a song competition that bares his name
dougboy never make a wave, dougboy never make a wave
but it does have
an nice chlorinated feeling

back in 1991 Kurt Cobain turned to Dave Grohl and said:
Let’s write a stomach ulcer, let’s write a stomach ulcer
so we can get my songs on the hit parade, David knew he was unafraid
then they got out of Aberdeen, yea they made it to the tv screen

now Kurt’s abdominal pain is heavy weight vinyl in a plywood rack
back in vogue at the suburb mall, back in vogue at the suburb mall
and it does have
an nice chlorinated feeling

back in 1976 Steve Jobs turned to Steve Wozniak and said:
let’s make a bicycle, let’s make a bicycle
and we’ll be flyin to Asia on a private jet, thinkin’ up things that we ain’t done yet
then they got out of their garage, new kid and the woz

now Steve’s bicycle thing is choking everyone over in Beijing
they used to ride everywhere, they used to ride everywhere
well, it does have
an nice chlorinated feeling
