I prefer (making) songs

I have made up my mind, I want a job
I'm sick of this idle life
It is about time! I could be
A banker or something like that
I have already applied
But they rejected me, yeah
They said my application wasn't actually an application
Too little text, too much melody
 
I prefer making songs
Everything else doesn't work out
I prefer making songs
Without them life would be dull
You can love them, you can hate them
I can't help it so I don't mind
I prefer, much more prefer making songs
 
My uncle has great hopes for me
As a computer scientist
My mother senses a lot of empathy,
Imagines myself being a psychologist
My girlfriend doesn't really know
She'd like best to be with that Federer guy1
But at the end of the day I'll make a hit song
And become multi-billionaire
 
I prefer making songs
Everything else doesn't work out
I prefer making songs
Without them life would be dull
You can love them, you can hate them
I can't help it so I don't mind
I prefer, much more prefer making songs
 
What else shall I do? I have already tried everything
Doesn't matter if at the office or at the building site, it has never worked
Sooner or later I get back to the songs
And leave when the boss says
Mr. Stein, you're fired!
 
I prefer making songs
I'm too stupid for anything else
I prefer making songs
Without them life would be dull
You can love them, you can hate them
I can't help it so I don't mind
I prefer, much more prefer making songs
 
I prefer making songs
Everything else doesn't work out
I prefer making songs
And without them life would be dull
You can love them, you can hate them
I can't help it so I don't mind
I prefer, much more prefer making songs
I prefer making songs
I prefer making songs
I prefer making songs
Oh, I prefer making songs
I much more prefer
I prefer making songs
