I wanta sing about the things that make me happy
I wanta sing about my brother and my mother and my sister and my pappy
I wanta sing about the things that make me happy
But most of all I wanta sing about you.

I picked up my first guitar when I was just eleven
Listened to them grand old opry shows
Well, I cut my teeth on gospel songs and good old country fair
My favorites then were Acuff and Bill Monroe.

What a beautiful thought I am thinkin'
Conserning that great speckled bird
Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
They were the sweetest songs I ever heard.

I wanta sing about the thing that make me happy
I wanta sing about my brother and my mother and my sister and my pappy
I wanta sing about the thing that make me happy
But most of all I wanta sing about you.

I travel all over the world singing good old country music
It makes me feel so good to hear them cheer
Some like for me to sing the hits I do on the Grand Ole Opry
And after all that's why were really here.

Well, my favorite songs that are sung today
Are like Rivelle and Williams
Boy, oh boy, they really were the best
And when they sang their songs
People laughed and cried by millions
And here's the ones today they all request.

Always late with your kisses
But your cheating heart will tell on you
I love you, I'll prove it a thousand ways
And that's why I got the lovesick blues.

I wanta sing about the thing that make me happy
I wanta sing about my brother and my mother and my sister and my pappy
I wanta sing about the thing that make me happy
But most of all I wanta sing about you.

Yeah, most of all I wanta sing about you...
