Keep on singing, don't stop singing
You're gonna be a star some day
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 6 years old
Started singin' in the streets
People would throw me pennies
So I could help daddy make ends meet

He said, "Keep on singin'
Don't stop singin'
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 singin'
Keep the bells a ringin'
Spread the music from town to town
There's not enough love in this old world
So spread your song around"

By the time that I was 10 years old
I had a little rock 'n' roll band
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 pull me to his side
And daddy would always say

He said, "Keep on singin'
Don't stop singin'
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 singin'
Keep the bells a ringin'
Spread the music from town to town
There's not enough love in this old world
So spread your song around"

He didn't have much money
But things didn't seem so bad
I felt just like the queen of the world
When I was with my dad
Then one rainy April night
Daddy called me to his side
He held me with his tremblin' hands
Right before he died

He said, "Keep on singin'
Don't stop singin'
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 singin'
Keep the bells a ringin'
Spread the music from town to town
There's not enough love in this old world
So spread your song around"

He said, "Keep on singin'
Don't stop singin'
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 singin'
Keep the bells a ringin'
Spread the music from town to town
There's not enough love in this old world
So spread your song around"

He said, "Keep on singin'
Don't stop singin'
You're gonna be a star someday
