STAND THERE AND SING

I wonder do you wonder
'Bout all the friends and trends
That you've seen come and go

Did you ever think you'd ever
Be called the King of anything
Or do you even know
That's what we say
You've never changed
No you'll never change

Just stand there and sing
That's all we need
The way you tell a story
Makes it easy to believe

Just carry on
And we'll all sing along
We'll  laugh and cry
Live our lives to a cowboy melody
So just stand there and sing
Stand there and sing

Did you always
know that your way
Was the best way
Or were you just doing what you do
Looking back now,
Hope that somehow
You've enjoyed yourself
as much as we still do

Because that's what we say
You've never changed,
Oh you'll never change

So just stand there and sing
That's all we need
The way you tell a story
Makes it easy to believe

Just carry on
And we'll all sing along
We'll laugh and cry
Live our lives to a cowboy melody
So just stand there and sing

Knowing the lights and smoke and mirrors
Were just that, you smiled and tipped your hat

Stand there and sing
That's all we need
The way you tell a story
Makes it easy to believe
Just carry on
And we'll all sing along
We'll laugh and cry
Live our lives to a cowboy melody
So just stand there and sing
Oh stand there and sing
