Lyrics

That Boy Can Sing

The scrawny boy with two left feet
Is chosen last for the softball team
And out in right field, he watches clouds go by
The other kids all laugh and play
He hopes the ball won?t come his way
Feels like he just can?t do nothing right
When that school bell rings, he takes the long way home
That?s the only time he can really let go

He sings at the top of his lungs
That?s the thing he really loves
Such a big sound for such a little boy
It fills the air with a joyful noise
He sings like he was born onstage
Fire and Rain and Amazing Grace
He opens his mouth and all his dreams take wing
Oh, don?t you know that boy can sing

Next day at school, he stands in the hall
Staring at a poster taped to the wall
They?re taking names for the 4-H talent show
Then the fifth grade bully looks him in the eye
Says, ?you don?t stand a chance, so don?t even try?
Scared to death, he feels his chest sink low
But that night, he sneaks outside when the coast is clear
Heads down to the river, so his folks can?t hear

And he sings at the top of his lungs
That?s the thing he really loves
Such a big sound for such a little boy
It fills the air with a joyful noise
He sings like he was born onstage
Fire and Rain and Amazing Grace
He opens his mouth and all his dreams take wing
Oh, don?t you know that boy can sing

He hears laughs from the kids in back as he takes the stage
But like a lightning bolt, that first high note takes their breath away

He sings at the top of his lungs
That?s the thing he really loves
Such a big sound for such a little boy
It fills the air with a joyful noise
He sings like he was born onstage
Fire and Rain and Amazing Grace
He opens his mouth and all his dreams take wing
Oh, don?t you know that boy can sing
