"Platform" Lyrics

It’s concert season. Oh, read your emails, please.

We’re sending out practice tracks and a note from your trustees.

Oh, I wish we had a platform we could all rely on.

 

But I’ve got spreadsheets; they bring me to my knees.

I’ve gotta update four more lists and sort 'em S, A, T, and B.

Oh, I wish we had a platform we could all rely on.

 

Oh, I wish we had a platform so strong,

I could kiss spreadsheets goodbye!

Oh, I wish we had a platform we could all rely on.

These details make me cry!

 

The board they try to help me, their overworked E.D.

But they don’t have solutions; I need some kind of relief.

Oh, I wish we had a platform we could all rely on.

 

This roster’s hard to manage with a pencil and a pad.

Lost track of the best tenor that we ever had

Oh, I wish we had a platform we could all rely on.

 

I wish we had a platform so strong,

I could kiss spreadsheets goodbye!

Oh, I wish we had a platform we could all rely on.

These details make me cry!

 

It’s concert season. Oh, read your emails, please.

We’re sending out practice tracks and a note from your trustees.

Oh, I wish we had a platform we could all rely on.
