A--Now you and me, we're supposed to be songwriting partners in crime,
B--Well how come you sit there for hours on end and leave it up to me to think of all the good lines?
A--Hmm, yeah, but if they're all such good lines, how come none of them ever rhyme?
A & B--Seems like every time we get together for a little co-writing...

A --Uh B --Oh
A & B--We're co-wronging...
A--I'm still waiting for you to come up with at least one good I-dear...
A & B-- Cooperating, it's a beautiful thing, B-- but I don't see you doing any of that around here...
A & B--Now this may be a partnership that we both don't belong in...
A & B--We ain't co-wri-e-i-e-i-e-i-e-iting, we're co-wronging.

A--Now, you ain't no Lennon, B--Well, you ain't no McCartney, A--Yeah, well you are definitely Nowhere Man!
A & B--We've had a Hard Day's Night. B--Help, I need somebody. A--But I sure don't Wanna Hold Your Hand.
B--If We Can't Work It Out and Come Together with a song, I'm going to join a Lonely Hearts Club Band,
A & B--We need to stop this Helter Skelter and Get Back where we belong, co-writing...

A--Uh B --Oh
A & B...we're co-wronging...
A--Tryin' to write songs with you is definitely puttin' the hurt on my career... (B--Career?)
A & B --Cooperating, it's a beautiful thing. B--And you could start by getting your mind on music and off of the cleanin' lady's brassiere?
A & B--The two of us are supposed to be pros, we're s'pposed to be co-wo-songing,
A & B--We ain't co-wri-e-i-e-i-e-i-e-iting, we're co-wronging.

A--How's about you and me call a truce?
B--How's about I kick you in your big caboose?
A--How many times can I accept an excuse, when you haven't got a tune?
B--Oh, yeah? How'd you like a free trip to the moon?
A--Oh yeah? B--Oh, yeah!
A--Oh No!
B--Hey, "Mr. Music Row", if this don't get settled, one of us has to go...

A--Man, you are so nuts, it's a wonder you haven't been eaten by a Nashville squirrel.
B--Well if songwritin' was fightin' I'd have to say you still got a punch like a third grade girl.
A--If you'd spend less time whining about me and more time giving this thing a whirl,
A & B--We might make some progress here actually co-writing,

A & B--BUT... We're co-wronging...
A--I'm STILL waiting for you to come up with at least one good I-dear...
A & B Cooperating, it's a beautiful thing, B--Why don't you pick up that pencil and put down that beer?
A & B--Bouncing thoughts offa each other's heads, the deepest A--philosophical, B--theological,
A--psychological, B--cosmological A & B--concepts a' ping-ponging,
A & B--We ain't co-wri-e-i-e-i-e-i-e-iting, we're co-wronging.
A & B--We ain't co-wri-e-i-e-i-e-i-e-iting, we're co-wronging.
