Sometimes I wish I sang a little better but I don't.
Might be a frog in my throat,
Or a lapse in my brain
Must be a wrong guitar chord in the refrain.

Sometimes I wish I sang a little better -
I sound so fine in my head
But when I hear that tape played back to me
It sounds like someone else entirely.

And whoever says you need to sing well
Has never heard Stephen Pastel
And it's sincerity that gets me
Just like Bernard Sumner on "Love Vigilantes"

Sometimes I wish I sang a little better
Maybe just a little more control
Maybe just a little sharper on the flat notes

Sometimes I wish I sang a little better than I do
Still I won't be deterred by you
When all my favourite singers are challenged vocally too

And whoever says you need to sing well
Has never heard Kleenex Girl Wonder
And it's sincerity that moves me
Just like Feargal Sharkey or The Legendary Jim Ruiz

And whoever says you need to sing well
Has never heard Stephen Pastel
And it's sincerity that moves me
Just like Calvin Johnson or Feargal Sharkey

And whoever says, "Let someone else sing"
Has no idea how much it hurts
Letting someone else destroy your words
I'll sing the things that I want in the way that I want to.
