I never thought that you would love me
The way that you do
I never thought that you would love me
Half as much as I do
You say you want to 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 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 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 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, an album’s worth of songs
But we had to leave the whole disc blank 'cause
Some other label bought 'em

Disc Three
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 that 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
Never released before, and you can tell why
It’s just some demos I recorded in my basement

Disc Five
I was barely alive, I was hacking up a lung
So they had to use a special computer as my replacement

Disc Six
A dance remix, that can catch the latest trend
And it’ll make you scratch your head
And wonder where my taste went

So now my fans are crying sellout
They say I’ve lost my touch
They say I should just get the hell out
Before I do too much
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
