about

If you name your new song after another famous song, it will receive millions of plays on Spotify and Deezer. Probably.

lyrics

I was having trouble getting my songs played
On any of the streaming sites
Partly because I'm an unknown
But mostly because my songs are shite
Then I read an article on a website
And it gave me such a great idea
It said you've gotta name your song after another famous song
Then everybody's going to hear

It's just a cynical attempt, a cynical attempt
It's just a cynical attempt to get more listeners

So I'm probably going to call it Imagine
Or maybe even Live & Let Die
Night Fever, that one by Justin Bieber
Or American Frickin' Pie
And everybody's going to love me
When they play my songs by mistake
Fifty Cent's gonna par my rent
And I don't even need to be awake

It's just a cynical attempt, a cynical attempt
It's just a cynical attempt to get more listeners

There's just one problem though
I think you ought to know
There's just one problem though you see
You play me by mistake The only cash I make
Is 0.0001p, play it again now...

It's just a cynical attempt
(You know I think it's working)
A cynical attempt
(Honey I ain't jerking you off now)
It's just a cynical attempt to get more listeners
It's just a cynical attempt
(You know it's pretty nifty)
A cynical attempt
(I've passed a hundred and fifty plays now)
It's just a cynical attempt to get more listeners
