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 cliché 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
