Sing me a song like Gordon Lightfoot
He could always make me cry
Sing me a song like Gordon Lightfoot
I will love him 'til the day I die

Sing me a song like Gordon Lightfoot
He was quite the singer in his day
Sing me a song like Gordon Lightfoot
He's a paperback novel in an Arthur Miller play

He was a curly-haired singer from the north
No one was better or so they purport
He was the poet on the radio
They don't make them like that anymore
They don't make them like that anymore

Sing me a song like Gordon Lightfoot
Sinf me a song like we used to do
Sing me a song like Gordon Lightfoot
The one we used to sing, brother, after school

He was a curly-haired singer from the north
No one was better or so they purport
He was the poet on the radio
They don't make them like that anymore
They don't make them like that anymore

Sing me a song like Gordon Lightfoot
Sing me a song about that shipwreck in May
Sing me a song like Gordon Lightfoot
About the bloody speedball that killed Belushi that day
