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.
