|in a hundred,||B|
|you on the first||D-mod|
|while listening half of the day,|
|But the hundredth||C|
The song may be cheerful, moody, or dark,
Or something there is no name for.
But the hundredth song will hit the mark
The rest of the songs all aim for.
Odds are about ninety-nine to one
They quickly will go out of fashion.
While the hundredth song has long since won
Your funny bone, heart strings, or passion
It may make you laugh. It may make you cry
In sadness or out of pleasure.
Stay up and listen ’til dawn draws nigh,
In hopes that you’ll hear such a treasure.
Odds are about ninety-nine to one,
In meeting room, hallway, or guest room,
That that extra-special song gets done
While you’re on your way ... to the rest room!
