Hightower Tony – I Am The I In Iconoclast lyrics

Oh yes, I made this song up
Yeah sure, I wrote these words
This composition is unlike any that you've ever heard
This is an original hit
And I am an original star
I know, cos saying it makes it true (right?)
Or does my voice even carry that far?
I wanna meet Natalie Merchant
Fix up a date with me & Helen Hunt
Get Winona Ryder on the phone
I want, I want, I want, I want,
I want, I want, I want
So my influences. . . well let's see
Commercial Jingles
& Gilligan, and Bullwinkle, and the Brady Bunch (of course)
And I got really introspective
When John Lennon got shot and Frank Zappa died & my parents got divorced
Put my name on my hometown sign
Put my name on a candy bar
I belong on an island nation
I'm not a star, man, I'm a constellation
The T in Trouble stands for me
I am the Bomb in Bombast
I put the Evolution in Revolution
And I am the I in Iconoclast
I am the I in Iconoclast
I am the I in Iconoclast
[Johnny Rotten]
No sleep, I've had no sleep
I haven't slept, I drank too much, I haven't slept & I'm broke
Any way that I could bum a cup of coffee off of you?
Any way that I could steal me a smoke
Hey, check out my cool biker boots!
Dig the cool Brando t-shirt
I tried to roll a pack of smokes in the sleeve
But I stopped cos it made my arm hurt
The T in Trouble stands for me
I am the Bomb in Bombast
I put the Evolution in Revolution
And I am the I in Iconoclast
I am the I in Iconoclast
I am the I in Iconoclast
[Zapatista]
I wrote a great hit song (This is it)
I bought a shiny blue guitar
I learned a cool Velvet Underground tune
I wrote the lyrics down somewhere
I'm sure I wrote the lyrics down
Somewhere
(Big finish)
OF COURSE I'M SENSITIVE MAN I AM AN ARTIST AND I HAVE THIS GIFT THAT I
MUST
SHARE
AND I MUST GIVE AND GIVE AND GIVE AND GIVE AND GIVE AND GIVE UNTIL
THERE'S
NOTHING THERE
For a wise man once said to me
He said, "Tony, your life is short on this earth,
And you must squeeze the great unwashed
For all that they are worth."
The T in Trouble stands for Tony
I am the Bomb in Bombast
I put the Evolution in Revolution
And I am the I in Iconoclast
I am the I in Iconoclast
I am the I in Iconoclast
