George Harrison - This Song

"This Song" is a song by English rock musician George Harrison from his 1976 album Thirty Three & 1/3. It was released as the first single from the album and reached number 25 on the American pop charts but failed to chart in the UK. Harrison wrote the song as a response to the copyright infringement suit launched against him over his early 1970s hit "My Sweet Lord". The lyrics use terminology associated with the court case and mention other song titles as a satirical comment on the notion of plagiarism in popular music.

Lyrics[]

(Verse 1)

This song has nothing tricky about it.

This song, ain't black or white as far as I know. Don't infringe on anybody's copyright so.

(Chorus)

This song, we'll let be.

This song, is an E.

This song is for you and.

(Verse 2)

This tune, has nothing bright about it.

This tune, ain't bad or good and come ever what may. My expert says its okay.

(Chorus)

As this song came to me, unknowingly.

This song could be you, could be.

("Could be 'Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch', No, sounds more like 'Rescue Me'!")

(Saxophone Solo)

(Verse 3)

This riff, ain't trying to win gold medals.

This riff, ain't hip or square, well done or rare. May end up one more weight to bear.

(Chorus)

But this song could well be, A reason to see that. Without you, there's no point to this song.

(Guitar Solo)

(Chorus)

But this song could well be, A reason to see that.

Without you, there's no point to this song.
