Mr. Soundman, mike me well, please
Give me the best noise-to-signal DBs
Take me away to pure audio heaven
With a Shure vocal mike SM87
            Soundman, please tweak the tone
            So I don't sound like an old gramophone
            Enhance, compress, or emulate
            Mr. Soundman make me sound great.

Mr. Soundman, (miked spoken voice: Yesss?) I'll sound superb
If you just give me a touch of reverb
But not too much or I know I'll sound spacy
And watch the bottom so it isn't too bass-y
            Soundman, I beg you, please
            When I'm on stage or recording CDs
            Transistor, tube, or solid state
            Mr. Soundman, make me—please, please, please—
            Mr. Soundman, make me sound great!
