On The Cover of People Magazine

Well, Shel Silverstein wrote a song for Dr. Hook
about wanting to be on the cover of Rolling Stone
And while it would be an honor to be on it,
There’s another magazine that’s very well known
It’s been quite popular for years and years
It’s visible while in the Supermarket checkout line
So if they ever chose me as someone fascinating
I’d be beaming with a smile and on cloud nine

Oh, to be on the cover of People Magazine
It would feel so amazing to be finally heard
They’d get to the heart of my compelling story
Might feel better than if I sang at the Bluebird
Maybe my Mama would buy a copy for herself
then she’d finally be so proud of me
On the cover of People Magazine
is somewhere I really wanna be

I’d talk to them about my interesting childhood
and the small college town where I was raised
They’d interview former teachers of mine
So they could reminisce about those school days
I’d tell them about my guitar playing PawPaw
He inspired me so much to do my own thing
And most of all I’d share about the love of my life
who I proposed to with MawMaw’s diamond ring

Oh, but time is short and I don’t know
how much longer I have here on Earth
All I can hope for is that this dream comes true-
This dream I’ve had in me since my birth

Oh, to be on the cover of People Magazine
It would feel so amazing to be finally heard
They’d get to the heart of my compelling story
and to some, it may even seem a little absurd
Maybe my Mama would buy a copy for herself
and she’d finally be so proud of me

On the cover of People Magazine
is somewhere I hope one day I will be
On the cover of People Magazine
is somewhere I hope one day I will be
