I WISH I COULD SING

I WISH I COULD SING


i wish i could sing
lullabys to you
can you teach me how?
all i do is talk a melody
but it don't come out a rhapsody

cover up your ears if you can
you don't know how bad i am

i wish i was Bing
young at 24
entertaining now
when i try to sing a melody
they all throw tomatoes at me

listen to Sinatra and see
god didn't give that to me
i escaped the draft by my ear
i told them i couldn't hear
tony orlando won't teach me
nobody thinks they can reach me

i wish i could sing
on the radio
i could teach me how
all i do is talk a melody
but it don't come out a recipe

i wish i could sing lullabys to you
i wish i could sing lullabys to you
i wish i could sing just as good as you
i wish i could sing harmonies for you
