I want to be a singer in Nashville Tennessee

and sing you my songs on the Grand Ole Opry

But I'll never be a singer

while I'm sitting here on my thinker

and you'll never ever hear from me.

They hear me on the karaoke

singing country and pop rock songs

You'll never know how much it hurts me

that I only sing my songs at home.

Is that Johnny---

No I'm just taking out the trash

Is that John---

No I'm just removing a splinter

Is that John---

No I'm just mister next in line

I'll never be Johnny Cash, John Denver, or John Prine.

I want to be a singer in Nashville Tennessee

and sing you my songs on the Grand Ole Opry

But I'll never be a singer

while I'm sitting here on my thinker

and you'll never ever hear from me.

They hear me on the karaoke

singing country and pop rock songs

You'll never know how much it hurts me

that I only sing my songs at home

that I only sing my songs at home.
