The Next Big Thing
(c) 2018 The Forum Monkeys
 
Verse 1
We never pretended to be anything
What we represented was really nothing
 
Pre Chorus
We were young and bold
Never thought of getting old
It was bound to be
As probable as you and me
 
Chorus
Never gonna be The Next Big Thing
Never had a shot at the big brass ring
But we can play and we can sing
Never gonna be The Next Big Thing
 
Solo
 
Verse 2
Smoke and mirrors is what we employ
We do it for fun, not to annoy
 
Repeat Pre Chorus
Repeat Chorus x 2
 
Verse 3
Always the bridesmaid, never the bride
But never the types to run and hide
But we can play and we can sing
You never know, we could be The Next Big Thing
 
Repeat Pre Chorus
Repeat Chorus x 2
Finale Solo
 
The Next Big Thing

    I enjoyed it and what's not to like about the theme and lyrics??? I dig the vocals particularly and/but found it harder to hear them in the chorus. During the verses, no prob. Cool adds for the bgvs, good choices there.
     
    It's catchy, too.
