REPETITION

Written: Gallagher Street, Las Cruces NM, 1985

 

Evolving from disco music, R&R in the 80s was polluting the airwaves with songs that seemed to Knees to be nothing more than a line or two being repeated ad nauseum, as if the listening span of the average teenager had dropped below the five second level. So of course Knees had to write an opus celebrating lyrical and musical laziness. If you donít want to join 'em, then parody 'em, Knees always said.

 

I donít care if the sun never rises

Long as my music gives me no surprises

An I donít care if the melodyís cheap

Long as I can sing it in my sleep.

 

Repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition.

 

I donít care if itís June or December

Thereís just one lick I got to remember

An I donít care if Iím live or dead

Just drive that rhythm right into my head.

 

Repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition

Repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition

Repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition

Repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition

Repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition

Repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition

Repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition

Repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition.
