She wants to be a great big star –

She wants to sing like Reba ………

Like Reba

A little girl growing up –
Singing all the time
Holding her toy microphone
Sings – See you in the big time!
Her parents think it’s all pretend –
A little girl’s big plans
She looks them squarely in the eye
Says – I’ll introduce you to my fans!
I want to sing like Reba does –
I want to laugh every day
I want to be a great big star
I ain’t got time to play!

I want to sing like Reba does –
I want to laugh every day
I want to be a great big star
I ain’t got time to play!

Her teachers say – now, settle down
Your homework isn’t done
She says I ain’t got time for this –
I’m off to have some fun!
She gets a little older –
And still loves to have some fun
Boys get way too serious –
So she says – I have to run!
I want to sing like Reba does –
I want to laugh every day
I want to be a great big star
I ain’t got time to stay!

I want to sing like Reba does –
I want to laugh every day
I want to be a great big star
I ain’t got time to stay!

She keeps on singing through the years –
Plays in a local bar
They ask her to keep coming back –
‘Cause they know she’s going far
So then she goes to Nashville –
Sees the stage where she will play
Says – If I could sing with Toby Keith –
Then I’d be here to stay!
If I can sing like Reba does –
I’ll be laughing every day
Then I’ll be a great big star
And I’ll be here to stay!

If I can sing like Reba does –
I’ll be laughing every day
Then I’ll be a great big star
And I’ll be here to stay!

So Toby in the audience –
Says – Heck – She’s pretty good
I’d love to sing a song with her –
I wonder if she would?
So then they sang a song or two –
It all went really fine
She signed a great big contract –
Yep – right on the dotted line………
So now she sings like Reba does –
She’s laughing every day
She became a great big star –
You know she’s here to stay!

Now she sings like Reba does –
She’s laughing every day
She became a great big star –
You know she’s here to stay!

Thank you to Tim Craig. Great working with you.
