The Lyrics

I was doing a crossword puzzle one day and the clue was "Singer Bob". The letters I had were D_ _AN, and I was racking my brain to think of a SINGER who's name could possibly fit.
The Rolling Stone rock critic sighs
The able keyboard player cries
The silver dulcet tones I try sure escape me
The cracked sounds and the raspy throat
Hack and mutilate each note
Guess it's not the day for anyone to tape me
I'm singin' -I'm singin'-I'm singin'
So bad
Funny my singin'

The vocal range is out of reach
It sounds like I gargled with bleach
Those who cannot do should always teach
Yes, that is true
And I wait for back up singers' voice
But I'm the star, don't have a choice
I guess I'll just have to foist my sound on you
I'm singin' -I'm singin'-I'm singin'
So bad
Funny my singin'

Now all my hit songs, they've been done
Much better, by some others
I've seen small animals all run
My voice's loved by my mother

Well, I return to sing on the stage
In rock music it's all the rage
It's getting worse the more I age
Just look at me pushin' sixty-three
I sound just like a rusty gate
When I was young I wasn't great
But it doesn't matter
I'm singin' -I'm singin'-I'm singin'
So bad
Funny my singin'

And you're list'nin' now with earplugs in
I grab guitar now to begin
My crooning is an awful sin, no fun
But I do it for the royalties
Don't have to pay some singer fees
Besides who else sings it like me?
No one!
I'm singin' -I'm singin'-I'm singin'
So bad
Funny my singin'
You know the routine.

Rick it's a shame the song isn't better known because you have done this perfectly !

I knew this wasn't going to be a top ten, that's why I posted on Sunday, but I just remember thinking this when it was a hit. Of course, Bobs' voice has certainly improved over the years, hasn't it?
