Lyrics

Terry Gross

I may never grace the cover of the Rolling Stone
And that might be all right with me
To go someplace that Axl Rose has been before
Might not be wise, hygienically

I may never be on Leno or on Letterman
I might not sing on SNL, but that's a
Lot of pressure just to play a song or two
Perhaps it's just as well

But there's one perk of stardom I desire
To meet the interviewer I admire:

chorus:
Terry Gross - you are the one -- I'll tell my secrets just to you
Terry, please pick up the phone and call me for that interview

Your guests phone in their parts from hometown studios
There's no bad hair, no stressful flights
You're not getting makeup plastered on your face
Or sweating under banks of lights

You're really nice to nearly all performing types,
I think your research staff's the best
Your subjects don't seem dictated by corporate slugs:
Sometimes you'll have an obscure guest (like us!)

[chorus]

You edit out - our stammers and foolish mistakes
Improving life - condensing the years
Making it interesting, and fitting it all between breaks

There's just one perk of stardom I desire
To meet the interviewer I admire

Terry Gross - you are the one -- I'll tell my secrets just to you
Terry, I hope you don't mind: I've got a Prairie Home song,
One for Michael Feldman, I've got an Ira Glass song too.
