I Guess I Just Lost My Readers

Edifying text for writers and readers to Pink’s “So What?” (see below to play the song)

I guess I just lost my husband
I don’t know where he went
So I’m gonna drink my money
I’m not gonna pay his rent
(Nope!)

I got a brand new attitude
And I’m gonna wear it tonight
I’m gonna get in trouble
I wanna start a fight

Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
I wanna start a fight
Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
I gonna start a fight!

So, so what?
I’m still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t need you

And guess what
I’m having more fun
And now that we’re done
I’m gonna show you tonight

I’m alright
I’m just fine
And you’re a tool!

So, so what?
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t want you tonight

Uh, check my flow, uh

The waiter just took my table
And gave it to Jessica Simp
(shit!)
I guess I’ll go sit with drum boy
At least he’ll know how to hit

What if this song’s on the radio
Then somebody’s gonna die
I’m gonna get in trouble
My ex will start a fight

Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
He’s gonna start a fight
Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
We’re all gonna get in a fight!

So, so what?
I’m still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t need you

And guess what
I’m having more fun
And now that we’re done
I’m gonna show you tonight

I’m alright
I’m just fine
And you’re a tool

So, so what?
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t want you tonight

You weren’t there
You never were
You want it all
But that’s not fair

I gave you life
I gave my all
You weren’t there
You let me fall

So, so what?
I’m still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t need you

And guess what
I’m having more fun
And now that we’re done
I’m gonna show you tonight

I’m alright
I’m just fine
And you’re a tool

So, so what?
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t want you tonight

No no, no no
I don’t want you tonight
You weren’t there
I’m gonna show you tonight

I’m alright
I’m just fine
And you’re a tool

So, so what?
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t want you tonight

I guess I just lost my readers
I don’t know where they went
So I’m gonna write my novel
I’m not gonna put them in
(Nope!)

I got a brand new idea
And I’m gonna write it tonight
Characters want some trouble
They wanna start a fight

Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
They wanna start a fight
Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
I’m gonna write all night!

So, so what?
I’m still a writer
I got my write moves
And I don’t write bad

And guess what
I’m having more fun
And now the book’s done
I’m gonna show you tonight

How to write
I’m that good
And you’re amazed!

So, so what?
I am a writer
I got my write moves
And I don’t write bad tonight

Uh, check my text, uh

The reader just took my novel
And gave it a one-star review
(shit!)
I guess I’ll go read some Steven
At least he knows how to write

What if this book’s up on Amazon
A character’s gonna die
He’s gonna get in trouble
Readers will read all night

Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
They’re gonna read all night
Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
We’re all gonna read it all night!

So, so what?
I’m still a writer
I got my write moves
And I don’t write bad

And guess what
I’m having more fun
And now the book’s done
I’m gonna show you tonight

How to write
I’m that good
And you’re amazed

So, so what?
I am a writer
I got my write moves
And I don’t write bad tonight

You didn’t read
You never did
You want TV
But that’s not fair

I gave you books
I gave my all
You didn’t read
You let me fall

So, so what?
I’m still a writer
I got my write moves
And I don’t write bad

And guess what
I’m having more fun
And now the book’s done
I’m gonna show you tonight

How to write
I’m that good
And you’re amazed

So, so what?
I am a writer
I got my write moves
And I don’t write bad tonight

No no, no no
I don’t write bad tonight
You didn’t read
I’m gonna show you tonight

How to write
I’m that good
And you’re amazed

So, so what?
I am a writer
I got my write moves
And I don’t write bad tonight
