“I write songs about sewing machines. I’m a Singer songwriter”

The Singer Corporation makes sewing machines. Of course, there are jokes about musical singers. “#wokeupthismorning to compose another ditty about an old-fashioned sewing machine. That’s the life of a Singer songwriter” was posted on Twitter by GauntletBoy on October 9, 2010. “When I say singer/songwriter, and I don’t very often, I mean songwriter who writes songs with a singer sewing machine. What did you mean?” was posted on Twitter by Mike Turnbull on January 13, 2011.
 
“As a singer-songwriter I only write songs about sewing machines” was posted on Twitter by Tom Appleton on April 15, 2013. “My friend composes ditties about sewing machines.She’s a Singer songwriter. http://bit.ly/M2cEfd via @sickipedia” was posted on Twitter by Fresh Stand Up on February 9, 2014. The joke has been printed on several images.
 
   
Wikipedia: Singer Corporation
Singer Corporation is an American manufacturer of domestic sewing machines, first established as I. M. Singer & Co. in 1851 by Isaac Merritt Singer with New York lawyer Edward Clark. Best known for its sewing machines, it was renamed Singer Manufacturing Company in 1865, then The Singer Company in 1963. It is based in La Vergne, Tennessee, near Nashville. Its first large factory for mass production was built in Elizabeth, New Jersey, in 1863.

The Singer Sewing Co. should put out a sewing machine called the Songwriter.
