The Statler Brothers — Thank You World lyrics

Thank You World

I wanna thank you world for lettin' me belong
I'm just one fourth of one small group that sings your songs
I know that there are others who have served in bigger ways
All I can do is sing your music all my days
It makes me grateful just to know to know that I can be
Unique and fill the spot beside the other three
Without a place here in this world I know that I'd be lost
Thank you world for lettin' me contribute to the cause
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/the-statler-brothers-thank-you-world-lyrics.html ]
I may not ever stand like Stonewall Jackson stood
But standing on that stage to me is just as good
And I may never be a heavy or a great
But you've given me the strenght the strenght to pull me weight
Oh for the part I sing is truly part of me
And it does it's part to lock the other parts in key
And it does it's part to pull to pull that sweet applause
So thank you world for lettin' me contribute to the cause

Oh world you've given me a place that I call mine
Though I've stepped out of it and I've gotten out of line
Sometimes I sing your music slightly out of key
And I know I make it harder for the other three
Oh I've always done my part the very best I could
And it's done the other guys a world of good
You've let me sing your praises world and harp about your faults
I thank you world for letting me contribute to the cause
It makes me grateful just to know to know that I can be
Unique and fill the spot beside the other three
Without a place here in this world I know that I'd be lost
Thank you world for lettin' me contribute to the cause
Without a place here in this world I know that I'd be lost
Thank you world for lettin' me contribute to the cause
Thank you world for lettin' me contribute to the cause
