Song Lyrics

There`s only two songs in me and I just wrote the third

Don`t know where I got the inspiration or how I wrote the words

Spent my whole life just digging up my music`s shallow grave

For the two songs in me and the third one I just made

A rich man once told me

"Hey life`s a funny thing"

A poor man once told me

That he can`t afford to speak

Now I`m in the middle like a bird without a beak `cause

There`s just two songs in me and I just wrote the third

Don`t know where I got the inspiration or how I wrote the words

Spent my whole life just digging up my music`s shallow grave

For the two songs in me and the third one I just made

So I went to the President

And I asked old what`s-his-name

Has he ever gotten writer`s block

Or something like the same

He just started talking

Like he was on TV

"If there`s just two songs in ya, boy

Whaddaya want from me?"

So I bought myself some denim pants

And a silver guitar

But I politely told the ladies

"You`ll still have to call me Sir

Because I have to keep my self-respect

I`ll never be a star

Since there`s just two songs in me

And this is Number Three"
