Alice Cooper – I Never Wrote Those Songs lyrics

My tape recorder,

It must be lyin’

’cause this I just can’t believe.

I hear a voice that’s cryin’,

That’s not me.

The wheel goes round.

I hear a sound.

It’s comin’ out all wrong.

And I swear to you I never wrote that song.

I been livin’ in my own shell so long:

The only place I ever feel at home.

And oh, that music,

I hate those lyrics.

It stayed inside me so long.

And I swear to you I never wrote that song.

But pardon me,

I’m not lookin’ for sympathy,

Not sympathy.

I’m just thinking out loud.

The melody,

It goes nowhere pointlessly.

Silence please.

I been livin’ in my own shell so long:

The only place I ever feel at home.

And oh, that music,

I hate those lyrics.

It stayed inside me so long.

And I swear to you I never.
