2-3-4 I'm a musician,
that's my life long position.
Somehow, I don't think I'm wrong.
I make a livin playin guitar
and singing my popular songs.
I write the lyrics, when I play my music,
sometimes the crowd sings along.
I like the night life, it's not a bad life,
singing into a micraphone.
I sleep when it's day time,
work when the moon shines,
playin another Honky Tonk;
for a hundred bucks, plus tips,
free drinks-N-tater-chips,
while my Baby is sleeping alone.

Yes, I'm a musician,
that's my life long position.
Somehow, I don't think I'm wrong.
I like the night life it's not a bad life,
but I don't like my Baby sleeping alone.
So, I told my wife I could give her a better life,
if I got a regular job.
She put her arms around me, gave me a kiss,
then said:

2-3-4 You're a musician,
that's your life long position.
Somehow, I don't think you're wrong.
You make us a livin playin guitar
and singing your popular songs.
But some day some Big Star will play his guitar
and sing your popular songs.
Then you can stay home,
your Baby won't sleep alone
and you can teach me to play guitar.

Now, we're both musicians,
that's our life long positions.
Somehow, we don't think we're wrong.
We make a livin playin guitar
and singing our popular songs.
We sleep when it's day time,
work when the moon shines,
playin another Honky Tonk;
for two hundred bucks, plus tips,
free drinks-N-tater-chips:

And, my Baby no longer sleeps alone.
And, my Baby's no longer... sleeping a-lone.
