lyrics

INDIE
by Mike Phirman

they told us not to use these words
they told us not to use these notes
they said "don't write that song"
but we did because we're Indie

their lawyers called our moms and dads
they told them they'd take all we had
so daddy said "don't do it"
but we did it cos we're Indie

these dicks at school came up to us
surrounded us behind the bus
said "make that song and you're dead"
but we made it cos we're Indie

our girlfriends told us on the phone,
"you write that and you're on your own!
just let it go!"
but we didn't cos we're Indie

so we laid down the song we had
Just me, nick, brad, and his step-dad
every station had to have it
so we had to say "NO WAY!"

So now our song's at number one
we're selling copies by the ton
they tried to sue us, but we won
the judge said "that's my JAM, son!

we've all got new girls and cars
we're VIPs at all the bars
we're only seen with other stars
and everything we want is ours

SO our next song will be...
whatever our new label says it should be based on market research within our target demographic which is white males between the ages of 14 and 21 who are into Indie
