How to keep music out of my head?

I'm trying to write a song, but I can't think of a tune because I end up thinking of songs I heard, I came up with one that isn't good, but it's too similar to the lazy song... I can't write lyrics without a tune, so how do I come up with my own without thinking of others??? I also want it to be original... Ish...

Do you have a tune(beat, what ever) of your own? To write the lyrics too?

Play a game or sport or some sort if physical activity that will distract you from the song

I guess it can't come to you overnight, and a lot of hard work must be there.

It might not be so possible for anyone to forget the songs we have ever heard, unless we have some gift to create music and we are able to concentrate and forget everything else while we do. I can't write songs but I think it should be that way. :p
