6-8th graders - writing lyrics
Hello. I hope this post finds you well. Chorus students - I miss you guys. So sorry about the concert.
Let's get started with writing song lyrics. You may notice that many songs rhyme. I'd like you to start writing your own songs lyrics. Don't worry about the melody. Let's focus on the words themselves.
Google the following song lyrics. There you will find some rhyme schemes to help you get started. I specifically chose songs that tell a story. You don't have to tell a story - maybe you simply have something to say. Either way, your lyrics should contain a central theme. Maybe each verse tells the short story of different people who all have something in common.
"Cowboy Bill" Garth Brooks
"Alabama Clay" Garth Brooks
"Love Story" Taylor Swift
