Might As Well Be Me

Listen

words and music by Kim Townsend

Somebody buys a guitar somebody takes a chance
somebody writes a catchy song, makes people wanna dance

Somebody gets a a listen, somebody gets a look
Somebody gets a manager with a little black book

Somebody's getting better gigs and makes a little green
Somebody's gotta do it and it might as well be me!

Somebody stops playing coffee shops and open mics
Starts opening for big stars, their name up there in lights

Somebody's on the radio, the net, iPods, and more
somebody's selling millions of their CDs in the stores

Somebody's quit their day job and livin' out their dream
Somebody's gotta do it and it might as well be me

chorus

Somebody gets a chauffeur, a limo, and a plane
Somebody gets a tour bus, a fortune, and fame

Somebody sleeps in hotel suites instead of in their car
Somebody always prayed that they would make it this far

Somebody's filthy rich now and happy as can be
Somebody's gotta do it and it might as well be ME
