Depends upon the tears you weep, so cry, lover cry, cry, cry, cry
Oh Cathy, oh Alison, oh Phillipa, oh Sue
You made me so much money, I wrote this song for you
Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue, Deborah, Annabel, too
I wrote this song for you

Ken Jennings wrote:Some people might say that "Just an Old-Fashioned Love Song" (if that's the title) is self-referential, but I don't think so. It's not old-fashioned, it's not much of a love song, and (crucially) it doesn't come down in three-part harmony.
The singer is clearly describing some other song.

I was about to post the same thing. You can find many more facts (and versions) of "I Write the Songs" here. It was part of a Top Ten chart recap for January 1976 that I wrote about early last year.

A friend of mine and I thought there should be an album inspired by this song called "Songs About Songs About Rain."
