 Watch: New Singing Lesson Videos Can Make Anyone A Great Singer

The same long faces in the workman's hall
Caramel crisp counts his birds 
Cliff chip's lines up his dominoes 
Kingfisher lead singer calms his nerves 
I'm drinking, sinking, swimming, drowning
Working, smirking, learning, burning, sleeping 
Thieving, cheating, beating 
I'm eating I'm deep in a goldfish bowl 
It's sink or swim 
The hall down town just burns to the ground
My boxing ring turned to ash 
Red head ginger bread sells tickets at the door
Stella sleep walks in the sand 
I'm drinking, sinking, swimming, drowning
Working, smirking, learning, burning 
Sleeping, thieving, cheating, beating 
I'm eating I'm deep in a goldfish bowl 
It's sink or swim they're looking in 
Hard up outta luck time to ride the village bike
A bike been used ten times or more 
Grape vine here's the wife 
Lays down her royal flush 
I think I've lost another wife
