Look It Up

about

A mid-tempo rock song with piano delivers a story many of us can relate to about the feeling of becoming weary of being asked too many questions by someone and reaching a point where it must stop.

lyrics

"Look It Up"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

I could show you how, but I ain’t no teacher
I won’t write you instructions or describe every feature
But I wrote you this song, even though I can’t sing
If I was a librarian, I’d say the same thing

Look it up, I don’t have time to explain
Got too many thoughts floatin’ around in my brain
Look it up, I know the answer but you’re botherin’ me
I don’t have the patience, and I don’t work for free
I’m not at your service, I’ve got better things to do
You need to leave me alone, and go ask somebody new
Look it up

I’m getting tired of always being that go-to-guy
Bombarded with who what when where and why?
Whether it’s in person, by email or phone
I can’t take any more questions, so you’re on your own

Look it up, I don’t have time to explain
Got too many thoughts floatin’ around in my brain
Look it up, I know the answer but you’re botherin’ me
I don’t have the patience, and I don’t work for free
I’m not at your service, I’ve got better things to do
You need to leave me alone, and go ask somebody new
Look it up

You need to learn to be more self-sufficient
I’m all out of favors and I’m far from omniscient
Next time you want my help, just play this song
Chances are the internet is right and I’m wrong

Look it up, I don’t have time to explain
Got too many thoughts floatin’ around in my brain
Look it up, I know the answer but you’re botherin’ me
I don’t have the patience, and I don’t work for free
I’m not at your service, I’ve got better things to do
You need to leave me alone, and go ask somebody new
Look it up

No I won’t write you a cheat sheet or draw you a doodle
So go online and try Yahoo or Google
Look it up
