"Keep On Singing" lyrics

Keep On Singing

Keep on singing
Don't stop singing
You're gonna be a star someday
You're gonna make a lot of people happy
When they come to hear you play

I don't remember mama
She died when I was born
We lived in a one room shanty
But daddy tried to make it a home
When I was only six years old
Started singing in the streets
And people would throw me pennies
So I could daddy make ends meet

They said keep on singing
Don't stop singing
You're gonna be a star someday
You're gonna make a lot of people happy
When they come to hear you play

They said keep on singing
Keep the bells a ringing
Spread the music from town to town
There's not enough love in this old world
So spread your songs around

By the time that I was ten years old
I had a little country band
And daddy's eyes were growing dim
But I didn't understand
He would be so proud of me
Each time he'd hear us play
At night he'd call me to his side
And daddy would always say

He'd say keep on singing
Don't stop singing
You're gonna be a star someday
You're gonna make a lot of people happy
When they come to hear you play

He said keep on singing
Keep the bells a ringing
Spread the music from town to town
There's not enough love in this old world
So spread your songs around

He didn't have much money
But things never seemed so bad
I felt just like the queen of the world
When I was with my dad
And then one rainy April night
Daddy called me to his side
He held me there with trembling hands
And just before he died

He said keep on singing
Don't stop singing
You're gonna be a star someday
You're gonna make a lot of people happy
When they come to hear you play

He said keep on singing
Keep the bells a ringing
Spread the music from town to town
There's not enough love in this old world
So spread your songs around

Keep on singing
Don't stop singing
You're gonna be a star someday
You're gonna make a lot of people happy
When they come to hear you play

He said keep on singing
Keep the bells a ringing
Spread the music from town to town
There's not enough love in this old world
So spread your songs around
