“Suck it in, suck it in, suck it in if you’re Rin Tin Tin or Anne Boleyn/ Make a desperate move or else you’ll win/ And then begin to see what you’re doing to me/ This MTV is not for free/ It’s so PC it’s killing me/ So desperately I sing to thee of love/ Sure, but also rage and hate and pain and fear of self/ And I can’t keep these feelings on the shelf/ I’ve tried, well no in fact I lied/ Could be financial suicide but I’ve got too much pride inside to hide or slide/ I’ll do as I’ll decide and let it ride until I’ve died and only then shall I abide this tide of catchy little tunes/ Of hip three minute ditties/ I wanna bust all your balloons, I wanna burn all of your cities to the ground/ I’ve found, I will not mess around unless I play, then hey, I will go on all day/ Hear what I say, I have a prayer to pray, that’s really all this was/ When I’m feeling stuck and need a buck
I don’t rely on luck because the hook brings you back/ I ain’t tellin you no lie/ The hook… on that you can rely.” –Blues Traveler, “Hook”
