​If I Never Sing Another Song

This song is by Udo Jürgens.

The audience treated him kindly,
But nobody shouted for more.
These days you don't read much about him,
No star on his dressing room door.
I went backstage to see him,
No crowds to stand in my way.
He didn't look sad.
No, he didn't look sad,
But he had something he wanted to say...

In my high-day
Young girls wrote to me.
Everybody seemed to have time to devote to me.
Everyone I saw all swore they knew me.
Once upon a song,
Main attraction
Couldn't buy a seat.
The celebrity celebrities would die to meet.
I've had every accolade bestowed on me
And so you see...

If I never sing another song,
It shouldn't bother me.
I've had my share of fame,
You know my name.
If I never sing another song
Or take another bow,
I would get by, but I'm not sure how.

Always posing,
But you love it all,
Though you have to learn to act like you're above it all.
Everything I did the world applauded.
Once upon a star,
Framed citations
Hang on every wall.
Got a scrapbook full of quotes I can't recall at all.
There were times I felt the world belonged to me
And so you see...

If I never sing another song,
It shouldn't bother me.
I've had my share of fame,
You know my name.

If I never sing another song
Or take another bow,
Life would go on, but I'm not sure how.
