Payola Blues lyrics

This one's for you al freed,
Wherever you go, whatever you do
'cause the things they're doing today
Will make a saint out of you
Payola blues.
I've got the payola blues
Even though I already paid my dues.

Listen to me mr. d.j., hear what I've got to say
If a man is making music, they ought to let his record play.
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.

Well, here's three thousand, that ought to get it on.
Well, thanks a lot man! I love your new song.
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.

And it goes like this.

I got a brand new record company, new manager too.
Got a great new record, I can't get through to you.
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.

How about this new mercedes benz, that ought to get it on.
Well, thanks a lot man! I'll play it all day long.
Payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.

I've got the payola blues, payola blues
I'm paying those payola blues
No matter where I go
I never hear my record on the radio.
