It was Friday and I needed a tune
so I turned off my TV, went into my room.
Just a bunch of notes between A and G.
I'd be outta here by a quarter to three.
Made some coffee and I settled down,
activated my keyboard, moved my fingers around.
Pretty soon it was approaching dawn,
then I realized all the riffs are gone.
I was sad, feeling so bereft.
All the hooks are taken. There's nothing left.
What to do when there is no more?
We've been beating that mule since '54.
I coulda quit, I coulda shut it down,
I coulda been a cynic, walk around with a frown.
But I won't 'cause it occurred to me all the riffs are free.
All the riffs are free!
