I'm really hoping the delay in your next post is due to the fact you are currently arranging and recording a hit album with all of our suggestions.

---She had dreamy blue eyes and I was so smitten/ Til she bit off my head like I was a marshmallow kitten.

And then I wonder why I wrote this song,
But I look at her and then I just carry on.

You know, I really liked the daily posts. I know that you haven't been too successful at turning blog hits to dollars, and I realize that it takes a bit of time each day to blog, however I know I would pay 5$/year for access to a premium site that (guaranteed/shot for) say 300 posts per year. You could post still once or twice a week for free to lure in new customers.

There are likely more people just like me. Just a thought.

Feel free to post something new each 3 days...

Chorus:

My heart is burning with deep desire,
Love fuels my belly fire.

Skippy

More lyrics:

water eyes follow crimson plumes
blowing time through the soul's monsoon

Bruce Harrison

Main theme (C/W version):

“She had runaway eyes and marshmallow kittens.

My heart heard a dream like ten thousand gay mittens.

She left me roped in like red calves in a stable,

And now my nose glows like Rudolph on my cable."

Skippy

Slam the peaches, pineapple pie
She had stardust lips tripping the sky

Just part of the lyrics

Ron Davison

The generation that grew up listening to gibberish in lyrics seems content to see it in presentations. Maybe, post-PowerPoint presentations will just cut straight to the "huh?" factor and include music and lyrics and interpretative dance.
Oh, and the lyrics?

She had runaway eyes and marshmallow kittens.
My heart heard a dream like ten thousand gay mittens.”

She said she'd expressed her affection by carrier pigeon
Wasn't much to say, she only loves me a smidgen.

"She had runaway eyes and marshmallow kittens.

My heart heard a dream like ten thousand gay mittens.”

Regular verse:

Her pink delicious ears could hear the clapping of the doves.
When I saw her face I put on my boxing gloves.

Lithara

Lyrics:

They say you can go broke saving money,
Let's go broke together, honey....

yep, that's all I got. ^_^

The KLF went one step further than your blog and wrote all of this up as "The Manual". It was their guide to getting a #1 single (it's more about marketing and stealing off other people than writing lyrics) and it's a cracking read.

My Favorite nonsense lyrics are from the Cult song "Aphrodisiac Jacket"

excerpts:

"Sittin' on a mountain, looking at the sun
Plastic fantastic lobster telephone"

"Aphrodisiac jacket
Napoleon machine gun"

yeah now that's song writing.

Steve

Pussycat pleasures, so soft to the touch
I never knew I loved her that much

Ha! I just wrote this based on the titles of the last few blog entries:

“The famous artist’s golden age and Johnny wants his “K”
With God, the prez, vacation man, not blogging every day.”

Dianne

The sounds of the summer, the smell of the sea
The colors of sunset, the distance to me

Greg

I feel the world is turning without me
A darkened room without the happy tree

Wherever it fits

"I Tried so hard,
and got so far,
but in the end,
it doesn't even matter"

"All the late night bargains have been struck Between the satin beaus and their belles And prehistoric garbage trucks "

This is a Dire Straits song. How unoriginal. unless your Mark Knoppler this shouldn't be posted with how saying whop it is from.

i.e.

"Cheating cheaters cheat the cheating for the truthiness of being"

Truthiness from Steven Colbert, or one of his striking, striking workers. Cheating cheater, can't remember where I heard that. See not much original material, but some retribution.

I laughed so hard at my cotton candy
that in the end tasted like brandy.

where brandy is not a girl,
now that would give the song
a kinky twirl.

ooh ooh...living next door to Alice.
from Dilbert.


:D

Scott, it looks fine !
can you please write a lyric for the Spain national anthem, using your rules ?

Spanish Olimpic Comitee is looking for lyrics to sing with our national anthem (currently, just music)
I think we can cope with english lyrics!
Could be great

Bob

There is another approach to writing big hits without thought. Do what "The Bangles" did. They clearly said the words "Walk like an Egyptian," but mumbled everything else.

This is one of the reasons I like Iron Maiden. Their songs tell coherent stories, and they annunciate their words. They don't hide behind mumbles like most singers and bands. I like Belinda Carlisle and Pat Benatar for these reasons too.

And as we choked on our own fear's pollution
The apple candy shouted: "It's me I am the solution!"

ddelphi42, if you're going to post the lyrics of a Dire Straits song you should at least attribute.
