where creative minds can interact

Song assignment to write from perspective of inanimate object

Let me know if you figure it out.

Don't have a clue about music for it. Maybe spoken word funk....hmmmmm, I'm thinking Stephen :-)

That being said, here it is

Excuse any sexist implication. This was done in fun!

Being Number 2

Ouch! Quit pushing. Do you think that I’ll work faster?
Hey! Lighten up. Can’t you just go with the flow?
Bungle! I’ll clean it. Don’t mind helping you communicate
Sometimes I think that you don’t know which way is up

Man! Hands are freezing. Be careful when you touch me, big guy
Listen! You’re messy. I’m getting tired of doing your dirty work
Yowl! These aren’t love bites. I’ll warn the others how you treat me
Sometimes I think that you don’t know which way is up

You are chipping away my essence
You keep on wearing me down
I used to be so sharp and stood up proud
Now you’ve got me spinning around

Sure! Forget me. Go ahead and do your disappearing act
Hmmff! So man-like. Put me in one of your little compartments
What! Discard me? Have you never heard of loyalty?
Sometimes I think that you don’t know which way is up

But, after all is said and done
No one has touched me the way you do
But you went and picked up a ballpoint pen
Hell, I never cared too much about being number 2.
