Going For A Song

You can take the stained glass from my window
You can drink my whiskey and champagne
You can drive a plough across my golf course
But please don't make me sing that song again
You can put piranha in my swimming pool
Kick me and I just won't feel the pain
Scratch your name all over my Lamborghini
But just don't make me sing that song again
It's not because it's hard to reach those high notes that it makes me sad
But when I think what I used to be -- ooh
It makes me feel so bad
Please don't make me sing that song again
It's not that I dislike the words
Though I must admit there are better words around
But every time I hear that tune
It really brings me down
I don't mind you asking for my autograph
But please don't ask what happened to my friends
Please don't show me any more old photographs
And please don't make me sing that song again
Oh no darling
Please don't make me sing that song again
I've sung it so many times
Please don't make me sing that song again
