I Wanna Be A Songwriter (Kenneth Sibbett)

Here is another contribution from Kenneth Sibbett. In this piece, he's channeling those great songs and writers from the 60's.

I WANNA BE A SONGWRITER

Folk's
I wanna be a Songwriter
want to write about Yesterday
to hell with the Paperback Writer
want to lay with my Lay Lady Lay
I'm sittin' here in the House of the Rising Sun
been here All Day and All the Night
just listening to the Sounds of Silence
My Generation should damn sure write
While You Can't Always Get What You Want
My Proud Mary could always Light My Fire
just a Day in the Life of Good Lovin'
and I'll be writing 'till the Midnight Hour
want to write about that Old Time Rock & Roll
let the Stones Paint it Black for me
Let's Spend the Night Together baby
Mother's little helper always has the key
Clapton made millions on Layla
While at the Crossroads snortin' Cocaine
so Please, Please, Please, People Get Ready
can someone tell me Who'll Stop the Rain
I'll Cash in at Folsom Prison
by thumbing down the Lost Highway
staring out of Merle's Hungry Eyes
and forgetting When Time Slips Away
cruzin' with Bo Diddley in his Cadillac
with the old man and the Cinnamon Girl
everybody is Free Fallin' on Ventura Blvd
wonder what happened to We Are the World
we all Heard It Through the Grapevine
that the answer is Blowin' In the Wind
we'll need Lawyers, Guns, and Money
if we're all Born To Be Wild Again
got no Sympathy for the Devil
don't have a Whole Lotta Love for you
just sittin' here on the Dock of the Bay
looking good in my Blue Suede Shoes
everybody knows For What It's Worth
to follow the Tracks of My Tears
you know I Ain't Too Proud to Beg
been dazed and Confused for years
you say I Can't Get No Satisfaction
I'm a Believer that it's true
what happens When a Man Loves a Woman
what happened to Runaround Sue
been crying 96 tears in My White Room
turning a Whiter Shade of Pale
never been anyone's Fortunate Son
God Only Knows I'll end up in jail
My Girl You've Lost That Loving Feelin'
all your Good Vibrations Got a Ticket to Ride
I know The Times Are A' Changin'
cause the Sunshine of Your Love up and died
you asked me Do You Believe In Magic
You Really Got Me Eight Miles High
now I Need Somebody to Love
is it you Suite: Judy Blue Eyes
I just wanna be a Songwriter
want to write about Yesterday
to hell with the Paperback Writer
want to lay with my Lay Lady Lay
