Still Stuck in the Chute

I wanna be a country singer--got me a guitar
and figure, in a dozen years, I'm gonna be a star.
I'm brushin' up on dancin' like the great Shania Twain
and smilin' sweet like Patsy Cline, like sun defyin' rain.
I've memorized those hometown lines that Reba always drawls
and dressed up to the nines with country duds from seven malls.
My hair's as big as Dolly's, like a helmet made of hair.
I shimmy just like Faith Hill, and it's Wranglers that I wear.
All day I practice to perform for friends and all my folks,
ignorin' all the critics, all the groans, and jabs, and jokes.
You see, I'm on my way to fame, except for one small thing:
I get a HORSE-ness in my throat, most every time I sing!
It's not a little wheezy colt' it's more a buckin' bronc!
The air goes upside backwards, and out comes a snortin' honk,
and then I whinny tryin' hard to get that air back down
(by then my Patsy smile has turned to Johnny Cash's frown).
The more I try to stable-ize my voice, the worse it goes.
I feel like jumpin' all around, to get it out my nose.
My shimmy turns into a tremblin' mass of shaky skin!
The lyrics leave my mind while nothin' seems to rein them in!
I guess I should be grateful with this malady for now.
It would be worse--to lose the horse--and sing just like a COW!
