Hey Matt - Lyrics

Hey Matt, hey Matt
Here's the thing
You know I love writing songs but I can't sing
Need a little advice or something
Just a couple of pointers so I gave Matt a ring
I don't want to waste your time
I'm sure your on the road, driving all night
But Matt I could use some advice
Cause I've been off key, all my life
It's time I learned to sing, that's why I'm giving you a ring

Hey Walt, hey Walt
Here's the deal
If you sing too high it's got no appeal
If you sing too low it don't sound real
So close your eyes, Walt, and sing what you feel

You know Walt,
I've got a little exercise we could try, repeat after me
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

And Walt don't waste your time, singing about love and lonely nights
Cause no one's gonna pay a dime to stand line to hear you whine

You gotta sing something new
Just try to keep it in tune
Lord knows that's all I do

Hey Matt, I guess that's all
You know I really appreciate you taking my call
For helping me out with my singing and all
You know Matt, you've got a very special voice
I admit, for this song, you weren't my first choice
You see Matt I tried to get Randy Newman
Randy Newman never actually responded
Thanks for stepping in Matt, it really means a lot

Thanks Matt
*No problem, Walt, you really ask Randy Newman to sing in the song?*
Yeah I did actually
*That would have been awesome*
Yeah I know
*Why didn't he do it?*
I don't really know,
I'm thinking maybe he thought my
organ playing was too flashy or something
I don't know, or maybe he's not into hand-claps, you know

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
*My fault, Walt, went too high, down*
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah,
