Singing don't pay the bills no more

about

this one hits home hard! I have been working mostly as a musician since I wrote this song in 2008!

lyrics

Singing (don’t pay the bills)

On the day I was born verse D A G D
The doctor spank’d my bottom chorus G D A D
And I started to sing

Oooiooh. Waaaaaahaha
Dream’d my name in lights

But singing don’t pay the bills no more
And singing never paid the bills before

I can’t find no job
So I can’t afford no beer
And I love beer

Beer keeps me drunk
And drunks as good as happy
But I’d rather be singing

But singing don’t pay the bills no more
And singing never paid the bills before

To just scrape by
I don’t see the point
Working nine to five

I’d rather be sober
Picking my banjo
And feeling so alive
