Payola Blues

música e letra

Neil Young

This one's for you Al Freed,
Wherever you go, whatever you do
'Cause the things they're doing today
Will make a saint out of you
Payola blues
I've got the payola blues
Even though I already paid my dues

Listen to me Mr. D.J
hear what I've got to say
If a man is making music
they ought to let his record play
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio

Well, here's three thousand
that ought to get it on
Well, thanks a lot man
I love your new song
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio

And it goes like this

I got a brand new record company
new manager too
Got a great new record
I can't get through to you
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio

How about this new Mercedes Benz
that ought to get it on
Well, thanks a lot man
I'll play it all day long
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio

I've got the payola blues, payola blues
I'm paying those payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio
