You're my singer
Lemme be your song
Celestial bodies
They get along
And I just want to sing along

You're my single
Lemme be your chart
If you never make the hit parade
You're number one in my heart
As long as I can play a part

Vegetarian by choice
Not by fashion
It's not so much what you eat
As what you balance on
And watch me balance on

Instrumental passage here
We're playin' it now
But you are not among us here
To play like you know how
Beg us to allow

You're my singer
Lemme be your song
No matter what you want to do
Let me pick along
I just want to sing along

Country ladies
Take us by the hand
Soft eyed and cotton clothed
Through Parrish meadowland
And John and I can be the band
