one hit wonderful lyrics – reel big fish

fourteen minutes and fifty-nine seconds into our fifteen minutes of fame
when the luck runs out, i won’t wonder who’s to blame
because n*body said they had a guaranteed way
to win the hearts of the public who are easily swayed
and just this time last year, i thought we had it made

we were one hit wonderful
livin’ the life, playin’ the role
we were one hit wonderful
well, it can’t last long
they don’t love you
they just love that one song

well, things don’t last long in life; that’s how it goes
they’ll smile and applaud, then turn up their nose
things will shrink as quickly as they’ve grown
but it’s perfectly normal for us to ask why
the company wasn’t untrue, they just didn’t try
and a new career is born. it will eventually die

we were one hit wonderful
livin’ the life, playin’ the role
we were one hit wonderful
well, it can’t last long
they don’t love you
they just love that one song
that one song…
that one song

so many lovely melodies
so many messages to convey
but they don’t care about any of these
“play that one d*mn song!” is what they say

we were one hit wonderful
livin’ the life, playin’ the role
we were one hit wonderful
well, it can’t last long
they don’t love you
oh, no!
we were one hit wonderful
livin’ the life, playin’ the role
we were one hit wonderful
well, it can’t last long
they don’t love you
they just love that one song
