Short Song

This is going to be a short song
I promise a really short song
Some say that my songs 
Go on far too long
So here is my short little song

Now I'm going to sing the first verse
Just this once then perhaps in reverse
But that wouldn't quite work
I'd probably sound like a jerk
Nevermind this is the end of the verse

And now it's time to finish this song
Like I said it's a really short song
You know I wish you could sing
Along with this thing
But you can't 'cause this song is all gone
