 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

I get to the party, but I'm too late
And I got stood up on my very first date 
I listen to country and everybody goes rock 
I get to the dance floor, that's when the music stops 

It doesn't matter what I do, I just can't seem to win 
But here I go again

And I say, "Hey, that's the story of my life 
I had a good plan but it didn't go right 
Oh no, I'm overdrawn, 
I check my account and the money's all gone 
Why me? I don't know what to think, 
I finally get aboard and the whole boat sinks 
Seems to be the story of my life 

I pick a slot machine and lose it all again 
But when I walk away, someone else always wins 
She finally calls me, I forget my phone
And when I'm starving, you know the kitchen's closed

It doesn't matter what I try, it all ends up the same 
And here I go again


Just when it seems like it's turnin' around for me 
There's always something that ends up happening 
I found my car, but I can't find my keys 

I get to the party a little too late 
And once again the music starts to play


The story of my life
The story of my life
That's the story of my life 
That's the story of my life
