The Lyrics

About a long and annoying car trip I took with my cousin, who likes two things...classic rock and singing really loud to songs she likes. The problem is is that she has an really awful singing voice, but that doesen't stop her from singinging at the top of her lungs.
'Heartache Tonight'
'Rock & Roll All Night'
and 'Born To Be Wild'
I guess those songs are fine
'Honky Tonk Woman'
and 'Sharp Dressed Man'
those are two more you like
but please be kind

'Cause when you sing along
you sound like a dog
so, please just don't sing
please, just don't sing
How you sing 'New Kid In Town'
I could just do without
so, please just don't sing
you know you can't sing

'Behind Blue Eyes'
and 'Your Lyin' Eyes'
you think you sing them fine
but my ears deny
And when 'Desperado'
is on the radio
you wail through your nose
and I just hate how it sounds

'Cause when you sing along
you sound like a dog
so, please just don't sing
please, just don't sing
How you sing Lightfoot's 'Sundown'
you sound like a sick cow
so, please just don't sing
you know you can't sing

And how you sing 'Big Balls'
makes my skin crawl
so, please just don't sing
please, just don't sing
Ratt's 'Round And Round'
I wish I could just go deaf now
oh, please just don't sing
you know you can't sing

'Bad To The Bone'
is on the radio
your singing b-b-blows
I just hate how it sounds

Now, 'Twilight Zone'
'Already Gone'
it goes on and on
and I just hate how it sounds

Oh, when you sing along
you sound like a dog
so, please just don't sing
please, just don't sing
'The Boys Are Back In Town'
please, let me out now
who said you could sing?
damn! you can't sing

I feel your pain! There's just no easy way to ask someone not to sing along but, it can be SO annoying...555

DKTOS, only "Above", but this is funny. I sing but do not try "impossible" stuff out of my range.
