​I Write The Songs

This song is by Me First And The Gimme Gimmes and appears on the compilation Smash Ignorance Up! (1998) and on the album Have Another Ball (2008).

This song is a cover of "I Write the Songs" by ​Captain & Tennille.
I've been alive forever
And I wrote the very first song
I put the words and melodies together
I am music and I write the songs

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

My home lies deep within you
And I've got my own place in your soul
Now when I look out through your eyes
I am young again even though I'm very old

My music makes you dance and gives you spirit to take a chance
And I wrote some rock 'n' roll so you can move
Music fills your heart and that's a real fine place to start
It's from me, it's for you, it's from you, it's for me
It's a worldwide symphony

Yeah! I write the songs that make the whole world scream!
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

I am music (music) and I write the songs
Yeah
