Social Media Envy

Inspired by Billy Joel, my mom, and efforts to write What Am I Doing With My Life?: A Millennial Musical (the brainchild of me and Aldous.)

VERSE 1
Sandy beaches, busy streets, mountain trails, tasty eats
Eiffel Tower, Berlin Wall, Amsterdam and Rome,
Trips in a Westfalia, surfing in Australia
Sharing all these pictures, hashtag never coming home

Going skiing, lots of sun, always always having fun
Never in a bad mood, take a picture of the food
Summer drinks, ocean view, party with the best crew
All my friends, all the time, better put it online!

CHORUS
Social media envy
Everybody’s else’s time
Looks way more fun than mine
Social media envy
Oh I get depression
With each browsing session

VERSE 2
Working hard, job devotion, now I have a sweet promotion
Med school, law school, wow my life is really cool
Yoga poses, fitness pics, I just biked a hundred clicks
All my baby fat is gone, look I ran a marathon.

A proposal, she said yes, rings, flowers, wedding dress,
We’re in love, kissing pics, couples’ photos just for kicks
Baby bumps, happy spouses, look how fancy our new house is
Toddler and a cute dog, read about it on my blog

CHORUS
Social media envy
Everybody’s else’s time
Looks way more fun than mine
Social media envy
Oh I get depression
With each browsing session

VERSE 3
Things that I don’t post about: getting fired, love-life drought,
Student loans, car repairs, break-ups and my ugly hair
All my style is copycat, think I got a little fat
Spending money I don’t have, that’ll be my epitaph!

Can’t afford my own pad, still use bank of mom and dad,
Over-paying for my rent, can’t save for retirement
Netflix is my best friend, job is at a dead end,
Man, my life’s a total bore, I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE

CHORUS
Social media envy
Everybody’s else’s time
Looks way more fun than mine
Social media envy
Oh I get depression
With each browsing session

Social media envy
Everybody’s else’s time
Looks way more fun than mine
Social media envy
Our shares are zealous
But we all get jealous

Social media envy
Everybody else’s time
Looks way more fun than mine
Social media envy
And we play along, and life goes on
and on and on and on..line
