Words and Music by John Masarone

You thought you had me
and fooled everyone
You son of the top gun

You hardly know a heart or a soul
You think you are so

You know no limits you know no shame
You think you're the boss
You're at a loss

and a douchebag

You are pathetic
A narcissistic jerk
A piece of work

You think it's your money
You think you have fame
but it is so funny because you're so lame

and a douchebag

You think the world's for you
but you don't have a clue

Everyone knows you are such a prick
They won't say it
but you are a dick

and a douchebag

You think the world's for you
but you don't have a clue
In eighteen years I have done a great job
but you are a menace and your shit must stop!

If I could can you
you would be gone
Until that day comes here is my song

you're a douchebag

For awhile, I thought you were singing about somebody else, but I'm not gonna name names. But seriously, this is a song most people can relate to, and it really strikes home for me, and a song that a lot of blue collar workers can certainly relate to. Witty and very well done musically as well. I like the sluggish intro. It is a nice departure from the norm. I also like the brief instrumental following the bridge.

I enjoyed listening to the lyrics of the song as well as the singers delivery. The bluesy guitar solo's were well played but I don't think I heard one single transition into a B or C section. It was A section for the whole 4 mins plus but it kinda worked for the type of song it is. Funny and seemingly honest!
