The Dum Song

Dum dum dum dum dum...
A world full of faces - no one to talk to
A world full of places - nowhere to walk to
A guitar full of music - the song on every string
Just because you know the words don't mean you can sing

Just because you know the words don't mean you can sing
Just because you wear a crown don't make you a king
Just because it's in the phonebook don't make it ring
Just because you know the words don't mean you can sing

Build the better mouse trap - everybody buys
A million dollar funeral - nobody cries
Brush away the cobwebs where the weeds grow in the spring
Here lies the man who knew the words but never learned to sing

Just because you know the words don't mean you can sing
Just because you wear a crown don't make you a king
Just because it's in the phonebook don't make it ring
Just because you know the words don't mean you can sing
Dum dum dum dum dum...
