She Sings For Free
Paul Williams

She's the girl singer
Who sings in the background
On half the hit records
You're hearin' today

Part of the chorus
A tree in the forest
A little girl singer who's pavin' the way

For a pretty young face
Who was blessed with a grace
And a smile that is charming and easy to sell
While she hides the mistakes
Someone else gets the breaks
But because she's professional
She'll never tell

'Cause she's the girl singer
Who sings in the background
On half the hit records
They're playin' today

Born sympathetic
And so energetic
A little girl singer who waits for her day

It's a patience that she can afford
'Cause on Sundays she sings for the Lord

She sings for free
Freedom to worship and wait
In the light of the one she adores
She sings for free
Freedom to live in a spirit of giving
She gives more and more

She's the girl singer
Who sings in the background
On half the hit records
They're playing today

None recognize her
They'll always disguise her
She sings for her supper
And wanders away

She's a star who receives her reward
When on Sunday she sings for the Lord

She sings for free
Freedom to worship and wait
In the light of the one she adores
She sings for free
Freedom to live in a spirit of giving
She gives more and more
