This one was written about FaceBook and all the stoopid posts, political opinions and nonsense from people whom I wonder why they spend the time?!

DON’T CLOG MY NEWS FEED

Lyrics and Music By George Douglas Lee

 

E  I don’t care what you had for lunch

E  Or if you’re going out for your afternoon run

A  Your boyfriend troubles don’t matter to me

E  I’m glad you feel blessed by your 7th pregnancy

B  But I’m gonna make a post, for all of you to see

A  Don’t clog my news feed

 

E  Why do I care if you had enough sleep?

E  Or all of that love you have for your peeps

A  The trite platitudes are nauseating me

E  I’m gagging on the nonsense, so I’m asking you please

B  I know it’s all you got in your life that’s free, but

A  Don’t clog my news feed

 

CHORUS:

E  Don’t clog my news feed

E  Too much mediocrity

A  There might be something that I need to see

E  Don’t clog my news feed

E  Living for those likes is doin’ nothing for you

So little time, so little to do

 

SOLO

 

MID 8

 

Dflatm  When I look at facebook, D  I admit I get addicted  (Ooh’s and Aahs)

A  Wading through the babble   E  so many sound afflicted

Dflatm  I wonder why the peeps spill  D  out their  personal life (oohs and aahs)

A  And how they have the time to be E   online day and night

 

You rock, you’re awesome, so many clichés

Be kind to everybody, you’re blessed when I pray

It is what it is at the end of the day

 

E  Don’t clog my news feed

E  Don’t clog my news feed

B  Living for those likes is doing nothing for you

A  So little time, so little to do

 

B  Don’t clog my news feed!

 

BREAK

 

 

 

 

VERSE

E Please don’t post another picture of a cat

E  There’s gotta be more to your life than that

A Don’t want to have a convo with the army of peeps

E  Your political posts are giving me the creeps

B  Reading this graffiti is causing me pain

A  Facebook is just chewing gum for the brain

 

CHORUS:

E  Don’t clog my news feed

E  Too much mediocrity

A  There might be something that I need to see

E  Don’t clog my news feed

E  Living for those likes is doing nothing for you

So little time, so little to do

 

CHORUS:

E  Don’t clog my news feed

E  Too much mediocrity

A  There might be something that I need to see

E  Don’t clog my news feed

E  Is it just me, or is this a fool’s game?

Everybody posting for their minute of fame
