See, I really couldn't sing
I could never really sing
What I couldn't do was sing
I have trouble with a note
It goes all around my throat
It's a terrifying thing

See, I really couldn't hear
Which note was lower or was higher
Which is why I disappear
If someone says, "Let's start a choir"

Hey, when I begin to squeak
It's a cross between a shriek
And a quiver or a moan

It's a little like a croak
Or the record player broke
What it doesn't have is tone

Oh, I know you're thinking
What a crazy ding-a-ling
But I really couldn't sing
I could never really sing
What I couldn't do was sing

Three blind mice
Three blind mice
It isn't intentional
He's doing his best

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle bells, jingle bells
It really blows my mind
He gets depressed

But what I lack in pitch I sure
Make up in power
And all my friends say
I am perfect for the shower

Still, I'm terrific at a dance
Girls are messin' up my hands
I'm a birdie on the wing

But when I begin to chirp
They say, who's the little twerp
Goin' 'pong' instead of ping

And when Christmas comes and
All my friends go caroling

It is so dishearten-ning
It is so disquiet-ting
It is so discourag-ging
Darling, please stop answer-ring

See, I really couldn't sing
I could never really sing
What I couldn't do was

Do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, do
Do, ti, la, sol, fa, mi, re, do
La, la, la, la
Sing, sing

Sing, sing, sing, sing
Sing, sing, sing, sing
Sing, sing
