udo jurgens - If I Never Sing Another Song

The audience treated him kindly
But nobody shouted for more
These days you don't read much about him
No star on his dressing room door
I went backstage to see him
No crowds to stand in my way
He didn't look sad
No, he didn't look sad
But he had something he wanted to say

In my heyday
Young girls wrote to me
Everybody seemed to have time to devote to me
Everyone I saw all swore they knew me
Once upon a song
Main attraction
Couldn't buy a seat
The celebrity celebrities would die to meet
I've had every accolade bestowed on me
And so you see

If I never sing another song
It shouldn't bother me
I've had my share of fame
You know my name
If I never sing another song
Or take another bow
I would get by, but I'm not sure how

Always posing
But you love it all
Though you have to learn to act like you're above it all
Everything I did the world applauded
Once upon a star
Framed citations
Hang on every wall
Got a scrapbook full of quotes I can't recall at all
There were times I felt the world belonged to me
And so you see

If I never sing another song
It shouldn't bother me
I've had my share of fame
You know my name

If I never sing another song
Or take another bow
Life would go on, but I'm not sure how
