Song Description

Amusing story of a narcissistic individual with an absurd addiction to Facebook, and the attention it brings him.

Story Behind the Song

I started spending a bit too much time on FB and I thought about the parallels between a FB addict and other addictions and thought that it may make an amusing and interesting song.

At first I thought this was a song about a drug addict, but quickly and humorously the tide turned and I realized I was hearing the funniest song ever about Facebook addiction. It has a bell-ringing truth to it! There are many people stuck in this addiction and this song exposes it all in a very original manner. Love some of these rhymes (saved me/tased me) and the line about the golden retriever is a crack up. This is a clever writer/artist for sure! Keep the good stuff coming!

This is a funny song, I don't think it's meant to be taken seriously - at least, I hope not! There's definitely a sparkle of originality in the story line - I could see this as a SNL segment, with Fred Armisen as the addict. As a basic demo, this recording is fine.

Lyrics

Verse 1

I was born and raised in a normal loving family
But I needed my fix and I needed it so badly
Heroin, cocaine, meth they all bored me
But when I got my first hit on Facebook it nearly floored me!

Chorus

Now I'm a Facebook addict I wake up in the night, to put up my posts, and count up my likes
I'm a Facebook addict and it gives me a smile, but I can't face the truth cause I'm deep in denial

Verse 2

Well my family and friends they all threw me an intervention
the shrink was there and my high school teacher from detention
I pretended to listen, I faked I was paying attention
But late that night I just went onto Facebook and unfriended them!

Alternate Verse

Cause I'm a Facebook addict I wake up in the night, to put up my posts, and count up my likes
I'm a Facebook addict and it gives me a smile, but I can't face the truth cause I'm deep in denial
I'm a Facebook addict and I'm high as a kite, when I see all the comments I'm in the limelight
I'm a Facebook addict and it gives me a smile, but I can't face the truth cause I'm deep in denial

Bridge

Every place that I go, every thing that I do
Even blowing my nose is some Facebook news!
I lost my job, they took away my phone, I'm desperate and poor and I'm all alone
So I pawned my gold watch, I robbed a liquor store, I had sex for a cell phone
Now I'm a Facebook whore!

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3

Well I lost my wife, I lost my kids, my whole family
Even my golden retriever, she looks at my so sadly
They threw me into rehab, a twelve step program gonna save me
but when I snuck out the window, the security guard tased me!

Repeat Alternate Chorus
