Yearn to Groan

This one is about how I feel now whenever I see one of those right-wingers on the TV machine, saying the same line of crap that’s been disproven so many times before (or would be by the next morning.)

And I have to give a big Thank You to my beautiful honey, Jane, for a great suggestion for the title. Thank you, honey. I love you.

Enjoy the song. I included two videos on this one. The first is a version with the band singing it live, many years after it was a hit. Note the reaction of Jeff Lynne when they do the fast talking part. The second video below the lyrics appears to be a produced video, lip-synched, with some of the band members dancing around the set while playing their violins and bass fiddles. Kind of cool. I just hope they don’t get blocked two seconds after I post this. 🙂


Yearn to Groan
Original Words and Music "Turn to Stone" by Jeff Lynne
Additional lyrics by Wayne A. Schneider

The talking heads are empty now
          The lies don’t work no more
And so the thoughts are way down low
          Churning, churning, churning
A crowd that knows it lost the fight 
          The a-holes of the hard right
Says anything that is a lie 
          To my Blue world

I yearn to groan when you are on, I yearn to groan
Yearn to groan, when you going off, I can’t look on

The lying members of the right 
          The liar that slowly talks 'til dawn
Still show up on the tube to fight 
          Burning, burning, burning
The dire tweets they type away 
          From them to everywhere they go
Show us they have nothing to say
          In my Blue world

I yearn to groan when you are on, I yearn to groan
Yearn to groan, when you going off, I can’t look on
Yearn to groan, when   you   are   on   I   yearn   to   groan

Yes, I'm yearning to groan cause you keep coming on
Why you keep coming on if I'm yearning to groan?
You've been on for so long that I can’t carry on
Yes, I'm yearning, I'm yearning, I'm yearning to groan

The shouting voices on the mall
          The foot tap in the stall
Are all I hear since you've been on
          Yearning, yearning, yearning
And though I sit here as you hate
          I yearn to groan, I yearn to groan
You will return again some day
          To my Blue world

I yearn to groan when you are on, I yearn to groan
Yearn to groan, when you going off, I can’t look on
Yearn to groan, when   you   are   on   I   yearn   to   groan

I yearn to groan when you are on, I yearn to groan
Yearn to groan, when you going off, I can’t look on
Yearn to groan, when   you   are   on   I   yearn   to   groan
