Well I think it’s funny
That you refuse to understand
How nervous I get each time
I have to perform after your band.
People have listened to great music,
Cuddled up with their latest honey,
Then, I am expected to go on stage
And try to compete by being funny.
You tell me that I am being silly,
And to go ahead and get up there,
But, from my own personal experience,
I know their thoughts are usually elsewhere.
So, when I sit down on that stool,
Trying to redirect attention to me,
I have to be triple good with my jokes,
To keep from losing them completely.
