The Lyrics

This is pretty bad...but here it is anyway...feel free to express your thoughts...
Man, the music i sing
Where will it go from here?
When will it stop
I believe that luck has brought me here
And I shouldn't be singing babe, but I am

My voice sounds like I smoke, but I don't
It sounds like I'm missing a lung

I try to sing a song but I gag
I try to hold a note but I warble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My obnoxious voice is one that people fear

Try to sing but I gag
I try to hold a note but I warble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My raspy voice is one that people fear

I may appear to sing well
Instead I simply gag when I try

And I may seem all right when I begin
But my good looks are a cover up
A cover up
Hey

I sing so bad that I cough up my lungs
Try to keep my cool but I can't...

I try to sing a song but I gag
I try to hold a note but I warble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My obnoxious voice is one that people fear

Try to sing but I gag
I try to hold a note but I warble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My raspy voice is one that people fear

Here is my confession
I gag after every session
Boy, I try to hard to sing
Too much, too hard, and such
With all my money I try
But this I can't deny
Deny

I'm glad I wasn't on American Idol
Who knows what Simon would say

I try to sing a song but I gag
I try to hold a note but I warble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My obnoxious voice is one that people fear

Try to sing but I gag
I try to hold a note but I warble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My raspy voice is one that people fear

Try to sing but I gag
I try to hold a note but I warble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My raspy voice is one that people fear
