The Lyrics

Attempts are funny—whenever I try.
Talent's something money can't buy.
Birds in the trees sing their day full of song—
Wish that I could play along.

I tipple all day, yes, I drink quite a lot.
How do I get that way? Look what I ain't got:

Got no rhythm, can't read music,
Got no talent—
Who could ask for anything less?
In a daze—E's like F flat, huh?
Got no talent
Who could ask for anything less?

Triple, double?
How's the time set?
Just can't find it—so I guess.
Can't get bars right.
What's the beat seem?
Got no talent
Who could ask for anything less?
Who could ask for anything less?

JD, Royce--thanks. Except for the tippling, pretty much autobiographical, unfortunately.

Clever twist on a classic....especially like the line: "Birds in the trees sing their day full of song"
