Us singers call that "a talk"

I was teaching aerobics with an older lady a few years ago who sang and played the banjo on the side. She was a mother of 3 and extremely condescending about her life stage in comparison to mine. Somehow we got into a conversation about a song. I sang a line of “Last Dance” – “beside me…to Gui-i-de me.” She said, “Us singers call that a talk.”…I replied, “US singers call you- an idiot!”

I suppose I shouldn’t have said that. We already know that when backed into a corner, I’ll always spew my way out verbally! We’re all even though…she is likely a grandmother now…and…well…us singers?…are still single!
