Lyrics

Karaoke King
(Toni Land & Andy Harrison ©1996)

"Here he comes"
"Wow, he's looking at me"

8:59 He gets his favorite mic, the words roll down the screen
Hush falls on the loud Wednesday crowd at the Holiday Inn lounge scene
He starts into his Garth Brooks wearing wranglers waving his Stetson Hat
Looks so damn good underneath those lights who cares if he sings a little flat.
Slips on an afro wig, flips on the mirror ball Country Disco Manilow, Hardrock, tonight he's gonna do it all
Grooves on through his smooth moves, a split into a slide
He is the best, no contest, he always steals first prize.

Karaoke King
Gonna make the whole world sing
Karaoke King
Gonna make the whole world sing

"How does he make his hair do that??"

He sends one out to Jeannie in the back corner booth
Winks, smiles, he's shining like the diamond in his tooth
Got 'em wooping, screaming on the edge, got em jumpin' off their bar stools cuz there in the presence of a legend whose just so damn cool

Karaoke King
Gonna make the whole world sing
Karaoke King
Gonna make the whole world sing

"He does Springsteen better than the boss. I love him."

Back at the cannery, working overtime
Got his rolex solaflex tape decks sound effects maxing out his credit line
Practicing his next routine, dancing with a dirty mop
Gotta stay sharp, gotta stay ahead, gotta stay on top

Karaoke King
Gonna make the whole world sing
Karaoke King
Gonna make the whole world sing
