‘I’ll Have What She’s Having’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Ballad

These are just words. Could go any number of different ways.

I’ll Have What She’s Having
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner

eyeing you two across the bar
I stare into my drink trying not cry
you’re so far away in your happiness
she gets to look into your eyes
while I got nothing but lies
I’ll have she’s having

we had our moment it’s true
time of sin that I can’t begin about
you made me want to scream and shout
with joy with our every bout with love

I’ll have what she’s having
is all I think
I’ll have what she’s having
I cry into my drink

I’ll have what she’s having

I’m alone now it’s sad but true
my only friend now is memories of you
the two of us ruled the world it seemed
then it all came crashing down
leaving me alone and sober in the dark

drinking you in across the way
there’s so little to day to my dismay
you’re gone for good I’ve got to admit
you get up to leave with her
what’s the rush I ask no one

I’ll have what she’s having
is all I think
I’ll have what she’s having
I cry into my drink

I’ll have what she’s having
I’ll have what she’s having
I’ll have what she’s having

[bridge]
need to sober up
stop drinking in the pain
the hangovers are too rough
but give me one more drink
of what she’s having

but I know in the end I’ll win
you’re restless and can’t be pined down
she’ll find you gone soon enough
awake to an empty bed
she’ll find herself like me
asking fate for a drink

I’ll have what she’s having
I’ll have what she’s having
I’ll have what she’s having

‘Hold My Beer’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Country Song

The only type of genre the “hold my beer” meme fits, at least to me, would be country music. Modern country music bangs you over the head with its message, so there you go.

Hold My Beer
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

we’ve all got friends out there
who think they know it all
they’re crazy as can be
like to raise a little Cain
otherwise thing thing they’re living in vain

they tell us we’re sad
when they’re fun to be had

don’t you fret they say
we’re all living in the fast lane
when something wild happens they just smile
they just smile and say
hold my beer
hold my beer
hold my beer

you see two men fighting outside a bar
you’re afraid it’s going to go too far
just as you’re about to jump in
maybe teach a lesson or two
your friend turns to you and says
hold my beer

some things in this life you can’t explain
no need to complain about your fate
when you see a hot girl at a bar
shooting down guys left and right
you know it’s going to be a fun night
that’s about when your friend says
hold my beer

they tell us we’re sad
when they’re fun to be had

don’t you fret they say
we’re all living in the fast lane
when something wild happens they just smile
they just smile and say
hold my beer
hold my beer
hold my beer

[bridge]
I’m no expect on life
just trying to get by
but it’s better to remain calm
that stir the shit

when it’s time to go
your night has been too slow
things seem like another letdown
that’s when you decide to turn to your friend
and say

hold my beer
hold my beer
hold my beer

‘The Luckiest Man In The World’ — #Lyrics To A Country Music Song

I don’t what’s going on with this one. I’m looking for a concept and it’s not quite there.

The Luckiest Man In The World
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

we’ve been here before
me sleeping in my car
you yelling all night long
throwing your ring
telling me it has a flaw
but in my heart I know I’m
the luckiest man in the world
the luckiest man in the world
the luckiest man in the world

lost my job yet again
staring at ceiling
as my mind is reeling
how do I get out of this spot
when everything seems to be rot
but good for me I’m the
the luckiest man in the world
the luckiest man in the world
the luckiest man in the world

can’t make rent it seems
there go all my dreams
down the drain yet again
but what do I know
maybe it’s just a lie ’cause I’m
the luckiest man in the world
the luckiest man in the world
the luckiest man in the world

‘On Repeat’ — #Lyrics To A Country Music Song

This is about me being obsessed with the #FOTUS theory.

On Repeat
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

this record is skipping
my mind is flipping
thinking of you
wondering where’d you go
now I’m alone
that’s all she wrote

and I’m on repeat
knowing I’m not complete
’cause of the guys with whom
I can’t compete
thought I could make the leap
but I’m on repeat

I’m on repeat
I’m on repeat
don’t call it obsession
I’m just on repeat

the word on the street says
I’m gone I’m beat
no way I can recover
grapevine is all sour
at this late hour

I’m not done yet
at least in my mind
all I can do though is sigh
when the clock strikes again
maybe we’ll still be friends

I’m on repeat
I’m on repeat
don’t call it obsession
I’m just on repeat

[bridge]
make it stop
let’s end it all
just accept my call
if I may have the gall

but it’s not to be
you’re just going to flee
’cause I’ve spooked you
I’m just going to have to accept
feeling gray

I’m on repeat
I’m on repeat
don’t call it obsession
I’m just on repeat

’13 Angry And Conflicted Democrats’ — #Lyrics To Woke Pop Country Song

It used to be, there was a significant subset of country music which can only be described as “hippie redneck.” They talked about gun control and smoking pot a lot. That, alas, is long gone. But these lyrics would harken back to those days. At least, that’s my goal.

13 Angry And Conflicted Democrats
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

our president’s lost his mind
it seems kind of sad I have to admit
time doesn’t seem to be on his side
one of these days thing will come around
he keeps ranting about Mueller
when he should just stay quiet

13 angry and conflicted Democrats
they may be our only savior I’m afraid
13 angry and conflicted Democrats
Mr. Mueller knows what he’s doing
13 angry and conflicted Democrats
they’re just doing their job like me and you

the president thinks everyone is out to get him
it’s sad, I know
but if he hasn’t done anything wrong
why does he act so guilty that’s a fact I want
but he just tweets up a storm
yelling into the sky hoping something will change

13 angry and conflicted Democrats
they may be our only savior I’m afraid
13 angry and conflicted Democrats
Mr. Mueller knows what he’s doing
13 angry and conflicted Democrats
they’re just doing their job like me and you

[bridge]
when will this all end
I say over yet another drink
when will Trump leave the Oval Office
that’s what I want to know

we’re stuck with Trump
at least for a little bit longer
it’s sad to say
when will he go, go, go
that’s all I ask
wish he was already gone
don’t you?

‘Doors’ — #Lyrics To A Woke Pop-Country Song Advocating Gun Control

I just like Kacey Musgraves’ vibe so this would be a mid-tempo pop country song where you could hear the lyrics really well. She’s really good a stuff like that. Regardless, I just like writing stories in verse and this is relaxing, so there you go. These lyrics allude to the fact that someone recently said it was too many doors in a school, not, like, uh, too many guns, that were the problem with school shootings.

Doors
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

we’re all demanding changes
too many children have died while learning
but you demand more locks on the doors
why can’t you see my friend
the lies you’re spewing aren’t true
it’s glocks not locks we should be thinking about

don’t tell me about
doors
don’t demanded fewer
doors
doors
doors

things don’t seem like they could get much worse
wish people would hear my cry
I don’t care about doors in the schools
we need to fix the problem with guns
locking doors isn’t going to help
when you’ve got an active shooter about

wish it wasn’t this way no way
I wonder if things will ever change
but I’m afraid I know the answer
we’re stuck with what we got
no matter how many locks we get

don’t tell me about
doors
don’t demanded fewer
doors
doors
doors

[bridge]
wish I could change our fate
even at this late date
I’m afraid there’s nothing to say
much to my dismay

when it’s all over
the history of this time is written
what will they say
was the problem too many doors
or too many bores who didn’t care
about the fate of the children

‘Crossfire Hurricane:’ #Lyrics To A Woke Pop-Country Song

In honor of the beautiful and talented Kacey Musgraves, here is my attempt at talking about Trump collusion with the Russians. It’s hopefully garbled enough that someone, somewhere might find it at least interesting. Enjoy.

Crossfire Hurricane
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

you and your plausible bullshit
think you can get away with it
you drink white Russians with abandon
have them visit you in your home
when you’re not alone boning storms

crossfire hurricane
that’s the life you live
crossfire hurricane
when are you going to give it up

they say where there’s smoke there’s fire
you live your life without a care
you’d trash the nation for a buck
but you’re not nearly as tough as you think
when the truth comes out your lies will end

crossfire hurricane
that’s the life you live
crossfire hurricane
when are you going to give it up

[bridge]
when all comes to light
you’re going to serve things out right
the bars will be cold
just like your soul

we’re all just waiting for the day
when this will have passed away
but nothing will change until we fight for it
this storm is only the beginning
we’re begging for some winning

‘Drinking Problem’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Country Rock Song

I like to drink and a woman I have a crush on does, too. So, this is me pining for her in lyrics. I just like to tell stories in verse, so you get this. I could see someone putting a country pop spin on this, actually.

Drinking Problem
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

she says she’s been wasted
for days and I didn’t get your message
but you’d wait and wait and wait
if you thought it’d help you get a date
but she’s far away and you’re always too late

you’d drink her in given a chance
she’d give you a drinking problem
she’d give you a drinking problem
one glance would do the trick
given you a drinking problem real quick

she’s the kind of dame
makes you feel lame, lame, lame
she’s got real personality
likes to drink as much as you do
but to tell so would make feel a fool

so many women out there who drink like a fish
but to get just one kiss from her would make you blush
she’s special as can be
but you’re afraid she’d flee if she knew
the feelings you had for her

you’d drink her in given a chance
she’d give you a drinking problem
she’d give you a drinking problem
one glance would do the trick
given you a drinking problem real quick

[bridge]
there’s so much drama in the world
you’d like to stir things up with her
just one smile would make you walk a mile

you’d drink her in given a chance
she’d give you a drinking problem
she’d give you a drinking problem
one glance would do the trick
given you a drinking problem real quick

‘Standing On Principle’ — #Lyrics To A Woke Folk-Country-Pop Song

The music to these lyrics would be something slow and folk-country like a Charlie Daniels’ song. I got the chorus from Twitter.

Standing On Principle
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you perform or produce

the man on TV tells me the crazy shit going on
my friends support Trump but I don’t that for sure
they explain that he’s making America great again
but I won’t deny what I can hear and see
no matter what happens
I’m standing on principle
the one I was raised with that ain’t going no where
no matter what Trump may do or say

Trump’s a weak man’s ideal of a strong man
a dumb man’s ideal of a smart man
a failure’s ideal of a success
because of that I’m standing on principle
standing on principle
standing on principle

all I can say is if you love this country
you need to get to work
you need to engage your brothers and sister
we got to join forces to make a difference
we got to stand on principle
we got to stand on principle

I remember back in the day
when people were honest and true
when a politician told me something
I knew it was at least half true
but now, it’s all bullshit
what are we to do, what are we to do
we got to stand on principle
we got to stand on principle

Trump’s a weak man’s ideal of a strong man
a dumb man’s ideal of a smart man
a failure’s ideal of a success
because of that I’m standing on principle
standing on principle
standing on principle

[bridge]
things are bad it obvious to see
but maybe with a little luck
things will get better you see
you’ve got to have hope

I don’t know what will happen next
but the future looks pretty bleak
unless we stand on principle
if we don’t stand on principle
we got nothing left to fight for
don’t let them get you down
be sure to stand on principle
stand on principle
stand on principle

The Night The Lights Went Out In Texas #Lyrics To A Woke Country Pop-Rock Song

This is just me screwing around. I am not feeling very inspired right now, but I can see the possibility to tell a story of sorts about the Friday night went it seemed all this news broke about the same time. This would have a country pop-rock beat to it.

The Night The Lights Went Out In Texas
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

it was a quiet Friday night
I was getting ready for next day’s fight
it seemed as though Harvey was the news of the day
that he was going to cause many people pain

but wouldn’t you know Trump made a decision
one that would shake us to our core
remind us of how much he is a bore

soon enough it went across the wire
Trump had pardoned Joe Arpiao
a very bad man indeed
yet another norm broken without heed

that’s the night lights went out in Texas
that’s the night they pardoned a guilty man
don’t you think it won’t happen again
Trump’s got Mueller breathing down his next

I was shocked at this turn of events
shocked as can be
shocked at what was happening to my nation
believe you me

what’s worse the so-called president
made it so transpeople can’t serve
shouldn’t matter how you dress
or where you piss
as long as you serve the country with finesse

that’s the night lights went out in Texas
that’s the night they pardoned a guilty man
don’t you think it won’t happen again
Trump’s got Mueller breathing down his next

[bridge]
what can I say but we’re screwed
nothing is going to change for a while
but I’ll see you at the ballot box
if not next year then 2020, you bet

now let’s just accept where this is headed
keep our head down and focus on the test
it was a Friday night and it all came to a head

that’s the night lights went out in Texas
that’s the night they pardoned a guilty man
don’t you think it won’t happen again
Trump’s got Mueller breathing down his next
