Sing a Little Song About Anything

This song is a duet between Roy and Smiley Burnette in Roy Rogers movie

Billy the kid Returns. In the movie, Roy is mistaken for his look-alike outlaw,

Billy the Kid. He is arrested and denies being Billy the Kid. He tells the authorities

that he is just looking for a music job. Since Billy the Kid can’t play or sing a note

Roy sings this song to prove he’s who he claims.

 

Sing a Little Song About Anything

Sing a little song about anything

“I wonder why he feels so happy?”

Words should rhyme but whose got time?

Just sing a little song about anything

“I wonder why he feels so happy?”

I know lots of things worth knowing

“But you won’t have a need of an education where you’re a goin”

I am haunted

“You mean wanted”

Sing a little song about anything

I wonder why I feel so happy?

“What do you think of a crazy gink who feels so cheerful?

Is he a guy who  never cries ,’oh how fearful’?”

Sing a little song about anything

I wonder why I feel so happy?

“Do you suppose the fella knows the meaning of worry?

One that never feels the blue or in a hurry.”

Sing a little song about anything

“I wonder why I feel so happy?”

I know lots of things worth knowing

“But you won’t have a need of an education where you’re a going”

I’ll be singing

“You mean swinging”

Sing a little song about anything

I wonder why I feel so happy?
