Liner Notes: 

I wanted a balloon song with an attitude. I imagine someone like Pink singing this.

Thank you @vivalarayna for hosting & for the theme.

Lyrics: 

Hot Air

I stopped him within the first hour
On the first date
When he took me to his place
And made me wait
As he gathered his trophies
Bloviating how good
He was at many things
As I intervened I stood

And said

You got a lotta hot air
Just like a balloon
And I'm bursting your bubble
Cause your so out of tune
Save your crap
I don't wanna hear
Take your big ego
And blow away my dear

It was like he was trying to sell
Me a used car
Convincing me he was king
The shining star
Never stopped to take a breath
He continued his praise
Looking in the mirror
He was really in a daze

So I said it again

You got a lotta hot air
Just like a balloon
And I'm bursting your bubble
Cause your so out of tune
Save your crap
I don't wanna hear
Take your big ego
And blow away my dear

And I picked up my purse
And walked out his door
Said this date is over
I'm not into no bore

You got a lotta hot air
Just like a balloon
And I'm bursting your bubble
Cause your so out of tune
Save your crap
I don't wanna hear
Take your big ego
And blow away my dear

You win the skirmish for using the word 'bloviating' in a lyric! Definitely has the right style and attitude.

Good write! Love the attitude. I'm sure I ran into the same guy.

Yes, lots of sassy attitude!! Definitely bonus points for "bloviating". Love the "take no crap" energy here.

Yes! A dynamite use of the prompt! And an excellent telling of a story that is empowering and perfectly appropriate for this bloviating fool! Nice work here!

A great chorus and; such an enjoyable lyric. Love the in-your-face attitude and can definitely hear this as an edgy rock song. Great writing!

Ha! A lot of hot air to deflate here and I was glad to see it perfectly deflated! Such a great chorus! I would like to hear this set to rocking music and then play the chorus at top volume when a few people I work with come into my office
