Sing For The Song

  • (Shel Silverstein)

    Chorus:
    Sing for the song, boy
    Just like you did when you stood on the corner
    And you didn't feel the cold
    Sing for the song, boy
    Just like you did before the beer, the whisky
    Got hold of your soul
    Sing for the song

    Sometimes you sing for the money
    Sometimes you sing for the show
    Sometimes you sing for those listening ladies
    You can still make them cry, don't you know
    Sometimes you sing for the glory
    But the glory doesn't last very long
    Through the haze of the stage
    Can you look back to the days
    When you used to sing for the song

    No, you really don't make too much money
    And you don't give much of a show
    And those listening ladies next week will be listening
    To somebody else, don't you know
    When the music is becoming a burden
    When the words come out twisted and wrong
    Through the haze of the stage
    Can you look back to the days
    When you used to sing for the song

    Repeat 1

    (as sung by Iain MacKintosh)

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1986:] Sometimes my tours have been snowballing lately - up to eight weeks long. And the temptation when you get near the end of the tour, maybe the last ten days or so, is to switch on to automatic pilot, just say the same things each night and sing the same material. I found a nice little song to finish off the night and to keep my feet on the ground. (Iain MacKintosh, intro 'Standing Room Only')
