Kris Kristofferson - Song I'd Like To Sing Lyrics

(na na na na na na na....)

There's a song I'd like to sing
Do you know the song I mean?
It don't always sound the same
But it's always good to sing.

Maybe it don't mean a thing
It's a pretty little tune.
It's a song I'd like to sing
And I'd love to sing with you.

And we can get to know each other
Like a sister and a brother
Like a father and a mother
Like a woman and a man

We can sing along together
Just enjoying 'til it's over
It don't need to last forever
If we want it to it can.

([muppets:] na na na na na na na....)

    Hi, biggestkkfan. So glad you're still here so I can say thank you for all your work. Have only just found it in the midst of a massive retro-trip brought on finding stuff I wrote when I was 20 - 45 years ago. KK wrote the soundtrack of my life at a time when it wasn't "cool" in the UK to admit to liking anything even vaguely Country. I responded so much to the lyrics and the music, feeling he wrote for me. I went through "The Silver-tongued Devil", "Help Me Make It..", "The Taker" (big time!), "Loving Her Was Easier....", "Casey's Last Ride" (so beautiful), up to and including "The Lady's Not For Sale" before I finally did "win the gentle man" - though I nearly blew that too, I wore out my vinyl and a couple of tapes - all I could afford that was available over here then, so am so happy to have discovered all your stuff on Youtube. Most of it has been here for so long that I was afraid I'd missed the chance to say thank you - a million times thank you - even if most of it makes me cry..


    +biggestkkfan I certainly will. Not sure where you get the stuff, but it's wonderful. Such a shame the copyright rules keep screwing things up. Nobody seems to understand them. Love the look on KK's face on the line "like a sister and a brother"! Well, it was a family show,


    +lindagal Have you watched my latest video of this song? Somehow I couldn't find the song in my channel and thought it had been removed and so uploaded my edited video which I only had on my other channel by then... I used slow motion to add some more scenes from the show ☺
    It's here


    +biggestkkfan does the link work???


    +biggestkkfan Yes. I've just watched it. You're very kind to do all this, in spite of the problems you encounter. Thank you.

    biggestkkfan....I beg to differ!!! I'm in the competition. Your the one the one that led me, with this song even, several years ago through my journey to discovering Kris on this venue. It was a hard trip made so much easier, by listening really listening to this man's beyond genius, right into just plain, ordinary, insightful everyday life experiences, culminating in me seeing him in person at the Comox Valley Music Fest. I was going to buy his "All Hits Album" for my souvenir, at the last in a truly karma moment, I bought "Being Mortal" instead. Suffice it to say that it got to the point (only about a week or so after I bought it) where I could only play it when none of my family was in hearing distance. I'll subscribe now. THANK YOU!!


    Thank you! Feeling Mortal is such a beautiful album... his latest three albums (Feeling Mortal, This old road and Closer to the bone) are kinda trilogy... really worth buying them all 😃
    I have even made a better video to the song when I couldn't get to this one here even when I was logged in to my channel...

    Hilda Wiesner

    +biggestkkfan I will buy all. Just watch the new version. Great. Another song that drew me into Kris' world at the same time was "Please don't tell me how the story ends". Did THEY ever record it.


    +Hilda Wiesner Yes. On Kris and Rita's last common album "Natural Act" (1978). It's track 8.

  28. Valerie Stone

    Thankyou "biggestkkfan?

  29. Henry Lindholm-Ventola

    hieno pari ja kaunis laulu!

  30. Rm M

    elias bannoura

    +Rm M Just enjoying 'til it's over
    It don't need to last forever

  31. Teresita Augustine

    I love them very much! Thank you, biggie for redoing the video. I am enjoying watching them happy together.

  32. James Williamson


  33. Brian Byrne

  34. Dienie Fay

    Per calendar.songfacts(.)com/events/February/14/
    On this day 1978 {February 14th} Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge, then married, appear on 'The Muppet Show' and performed "Song I Like to Sing"
    {It was a track from their duet album 'Full Moon'...


    @Mary Shaw That's not quite correct. Rita and Kris have a daughter together, Casey, but Kris shares the stage for a couple of his songs in the concerts with daughter Kelly, who is 23 and Kris' wife Lisa is her Mum.

    Cynthia's Channel

    Thanks Mary..... So Kris and Rita has a daughter together named Casey ?   Then does Kris and Lisa have children.. together. too ?  If Lisa is the mum.... So who does Casey belong to... Rita or Lisa....... ?  Because I am not sure......

    Mary Shaw

    Yes, they have several and they now live in Hawaii. They have a wonderful retreat there.


    Kris and Lisa have 5 children together, 4 boys and Kelly... the youngest is 19, the oldest 30.

    Eliene Costa

    happiness for you kris, and his beautiful fa family

    The "Maybe it don't mean a thing..." verse was cut off the song for the 45 RPM issue on A&M 1475 (US).

  40. George Margo

    They were such a great couple ..Sad ending

  41. Timothy Himes

    Simpler music times, post hippie craziness, ballads my favorite.

  47. ellienc

  48. biggestkkfan

    @Daniaboot lol

  49. William Doyle

    So Biggie ... what cha doin' ... raising a whole generation of little kids to be Kris fans ...?

  50. biggestkkfan

    @Daniaboot my class that I'm the class teacher of, is really musical, so when we learned the song they started to move and dance to it... that's cute, and they loved the na-na-na part lol

  51. biggestkkfan

    @Daniaboot This is a song I use to deal with my 5th grade students - I cut all the lines to let them put them into the right order - they just start out with written English in year 5 ... it's fun to them to arrange the lines - and Kris was so kind to let a gap between each line to give them enough time to manage it lol

  52. biggestkkfan

    @Daniaboot ... but my ears are or my eyes, for i would have to read not hear your advice ;-)

  53. biggestkkfan

    @ItsWaldo Thanks for watching here!

  54. ItsWaldo (Walter Brinkman)

    Great song and video....thanks for sharing

  55. William Doyle

    You ought to be ashamed ... I've been waiting for this video (vid) forever ... quit screwin' around and get on the ball ...!!! And where is Josie ...? I would not presume to offer advice as to what movie you should use ... you've been doing okay so far without any input from me ... I'm still waiting Biggie ....
