Lyrics: 

I'm Just a Word Whore

As I seek collaboration
I think hard on what I've said
When posting on these song sites
All the thoughts inside my head
These ideas are changing
This brain's a blender and a train
Of words that come together
Even if that sounds insane

I'm just a word whore
You either love or hate
I'm just a word whore
Who needs a melody mate
Someone who'll put my words
To music somehow
Starts off as a blind date
Then becomes a marriage vow

Can you turn this art of writing
Into something that sounds great
Pleasing to the listener
That your feelings intimate
This quest can be lonely
Is sometimes how this writer feels
It's a chance that I must take
Hoping language use appeals

I'm just a word whore
You either love or hate
I'm just a word whore
Who needs a melody mate
Someone who'll put my words
To music somehow
Starts off as a blind date
Then becomes a marriage vow

So, let's have some fun
And the wedding bells will chime
Once the lyric meets the music
All the efforts worth the time

I'm just a word whore
You either love or hate
I'm just a word whore
Who needs a melody mate
Someone who'll put my words
To music somehow
Starts off as a blind date
Then becomes a marriage vow

Funny and well-crafted and oh, so true! A nice study in self-deprecating word play, and a paean to the sense of joy that a perfectly-crafted collaboration can bring.

I think you've nailed a good deal of the joy of collaboration here! Great sense of humour.
