LYRICS:
Now and then I find a video that's really special
Like when that naked guy gets painted and starts to cry
But as it rose in popularity
All the covers and the parodies
And now I think it's the most overplayed song ever

I became addicted quick at first cuz it was magic
My favorite station played again, and over again
I repainted my whole room like it
Got a full-body tattoo of him
This song is much harder to ditch than a lover

[Chorus]
But now it's time to turn it off
Never heard a song so catchy had to break up with it
I wish that I could keep it on
But they played it at my cousin Jacob's Bar Mitzvah
I wish it didn't go viral
Didn't expect it'd be so trendy it when it dropped last summer
It's my grandmother's new ringtone
So now it's just some music that I used to love
Now it's just some music that I used to loveIt's like "The Macarena" or "Whoomp, There It Is"


I know you wanna break up with us and you want your closure
But they play us everywhere, you cannot hide, you cannot run
So, give our other songs a play
You'll help them all become clich├ę
Like them, forward them and then repost
Then you'll help us make more music into music that you used to love


[Gotye:]
I really need to turn it off
Otherwise I'm gonna stick my head into an oven
I just wanna escape its clutch
But it plays in elevators and the gas stations
It's turned my brain into Jell-O
Ask my friends to slap my lips off if they hear me humming
I bet it wins a Grammy though
But for now, it's just some music that I used to love
