Memorex Cassette

APPEARS ON


I borrowed twenty dollars from a friend in my home town
So I could record some songs I'd written and play them all around
And when a big star finally cuts one, hell, you know I'll be set
Right now my future's riding on a Memorex cassette

Is it live or is it Memorex?
You can hardly tell
All my best songs are on there
And I'm hoping that they sell
Right now they don't think I'm anything
They ain't heard me yet
Wait til they get a load of
What I got on my cassette

Gonna take them down to Music Row in Nashville, Tennessee
I'm gonna play them songs for everyone that will listen to me
I know the odds ain't looking good, hell, a gambler wouldn't bet
That I could change my whole life with a Memorex cassette

Is it live or is it Memorex?
You can hardly tell
All my best songs are on there
And I'm hoping that they sell
Right now they don't think I'm anybody
They ain't heard me yet
Wait til they get a load of
What I got on my cassette

The car was packed and loaded and I was on my way
That demo tape rode shotgun, I guess that's where it shoulda stayed
But I had to give myself one more listen and I never will forget
I heard my life get chomped away when the deck ate my cassette

Is it live or is it Memorex?
I guess I'll never know
As for that trip to Nashville
I guess I won't even go
I could have been an up-and-comer
Now I'm just upset
Cause my goddamn car stereo
Went and ate my Memorex cassette
