I can sing my own song


I can sing my own song while the music plays loud,

I can sing my own song, of this I am proud.

I can sign loud & clear though it might hurt your ears,

Cos I’m singing a song that’s not playing!

You must understand that it’s not my fault,

You must understand, you must know what’s the cause.

It’s what I was taught in my aural training –

To hold my tune while someone else is singing.

The music plays loud but I hear the song,

That matches my current emotion.

I sing it out loud till I let it all out,

And feel like a different person.

I sing out loud when I need a release,

From the daily routine of cooking meals.

I’m wailing away while the dinner gets done,

And you walk in wondering what is wrong!

I sing my own song even when it’s all wrong,

Cos it’s not on the CD that I put on!

You hear me wailing and think I’m ailing

And that I might need to visit the doctor.
