Lyrics
THE SINGER
Written by: Howard Delnick


Verse:
EV'RY NIGHT ABOUT NINE O'CLOCK
I TAKE MY GUITAR AND WALK
ONTO THE STAGE AND SING MY MANY SONGS
FOR HOURS I JUST SIT AND PLAY
AND PASS THE TIME AWAY
DOING SONGS I'VE DONE A THOUSAND TIMES BEFORE

Chorus:
AND THE PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND
THE LIFE STYLE OF THIS MAN
TRAV'LIN' LIKE A ONE MAN BAND
IT'S THE ONLY LIFE FOR ME,THE LIFE OF A SINGER

Verse:
I MOVE FROM TOWN TO TOWN
DON'T THINK I'LL EVER SETTLE DOWN
DOIN' ONE NIGHT STANDS IN TOWNS YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF
AND I PLAY MOST EV'RY NIGHT
FOR SOME BEERS AND A BITE
THEN I TAKE MY THINGS AND HEAD ON DOWN THE ROAD

Chorus:

Verse:
THERE'S OTHER THINGS THAT I COULD DO
TAKE A JOB AND BE LIKE YOU
AND COME HOME EV'RY NIGHT TO A WIFE AND KIDS
BUT I JUST CAN'T SETTLE DOWN
GOTTA SPREAD MY SONGS AROUND
OH LORD I GOTTA SING 'EM JUST ONCE MORE

Chorus:

TRAV'LIN' 'ROUND AND BEIN' FREE
YA IT'S THE ONLY LIFE FOR ME
THE LIFE OF THE SINGER
