Everybody wished one day to come up with an idea that would be so brilliant
That it would be enough to get them celebrity and money for as long as they want.
Even just a song, as Bridget Jones’ friend or Hugh Grant in About a boy,
Successful enough to make your bank account feel like a toy.
David Fincher tried to show that it wasn’t always pretty to be the guy with the genius idea,
But I found his Social Network even more tempting, I wish I had thought of FaceMe.
Even more genius in a world that, God knows, doesn’t exist, without even trying,
Ricky Gervais became king when he came up with The Invention of Lying.
Please give me this one flash of genius that would end for life any pecuniary distress.
Even then I’d need a catchphrase, everybody has one in the US.
