I never thought that you would love me the-the way that you do
I never felt that you would love me half as much as I do
You say you wanna know everything about me, well here you go
You say you couldn't live your life without me, I don't know
But if you want it girl, you've got it, it's all right here in my box set

I never thought that words like product could ever leave my lips
But something happened to me somewhere
That-that made me lose my grip
Well maybe it's a lack of inspiration that makes me stoop
Or maybe it's a lack of remuneration, I can't recoup
But if you want it folks, you got it it's all right here in my box set

Disc one
It's where we've begun, it's all of my greatest hits
And if you are a fan then you know that you've already got 'em

Disc two
It was all brand new
Al album's worth of songs
But all we had to leave the whole disc blank
'Cause some other label bought 'em

Disc three
Well this is really me in a grade school play
I had about a hundred thousand lines but of course I forgot 'em

I never thought there'd be days like this
There was always someone at my door
I never thought I would ever miss
And the crowd would always holler for more
But now it seems all the people want is what I used to be
And every time I try to do something new, all they want is 1973

I never thought I'd be regretful of all my past success
But some stupid number one hit single has got me in this mess
You can put it on every compilation, that's all right
You can hear it on the oldies radio station every night
And if you want it again, you got it, it's right here in my box set

Disc four
It never released before and you can tell why
It's just some demos I recorded in my basement

But disc five
I was barely alive, I was hacking up a lung
And so they had to use a special computer as my replacement

Disc six
A dance remix, so I can catch the latest trend
And it'll make you scratch your head and wonder where my taste went
Oh no, yeah, yeah, yeah

So now my fans are crying sellout
Well they say I've lost my touch
They say I should just get the hell out
But before I do too much
Well hear my songs in an ad for a bathroom cleanser
They say it's greed

And now I'm wondering where my friends are
In this time of need
But if you change your mind and buy it
I hope you enjoy my new box
I hope you enjoy my new box
I hope you enjoy my new box set
