Write me a song about singin'
Write me a song about free
Do a little tune about lovin' and a-livin'
Do it just for me

[Chorus]
But please don't make it a sad song
I don't wanna sing the blues
For god's sakes make it a glad song
I got no time to lose

Now, write me a song about rivers
Write me a song about trees
Do a little tune about climbin' the mountain
Play it in the key of me

[Chorus]
But please don't make it a sad song
I don't wanna sing the blues
For god's sakes make it a glad song
I got no time to lose

Lay a little get-down rhythm
Sprinkle in a dash a' soul
Mix it with a little bit a' breakdown country
Plus a lot a' Rock an' roll

[Chorus]
But please don't make it a sad song
I don't wanna sing the blues
For god's sakes make it a glad song
I got no time to lose

Well, write me a song about summer
Write me a song about sun
Do a little tune about good times
Do it just for fun

[Chorus]
But please don't make it a sad song
I don't wanna sing the blues
For god's sakes make it a glad song
I got no time to lose
