‘Ask Me Anything’ — #Lyrics To A Pop-Rock Ballad

Just screwing around with song titles and concepts. This one is pretty good. Just like telling stories in verse. That’s all that’s going on. It’s relaxing.

Ask Me Anything
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

we’re all alone in this world
don’t know what I’m going to do
moan all you like but in the end
life can give you a twirl
so I say to fate with a wink

ask me anything

maybe you’re the one
I tell you and smirk
is it possible you’re my love
a white dove ready to coo
what ever am I going to do

don’t you fret at all
I’m ready to take the plunge
ready to open the door to our first date
but you’ve got to stop waiting
get off your ass and ask

ask me anything
let the questions flow
from your tongue to my mind
ask me anything
ask me anything

[bridge]
let me answer all your questions
ease all your fears
I’ll get you closer to
everything you hold dear

what is there to worry about
once you ask me anything
I’ll say yes
maybe tonight
we’ll get undressed

ask me anything
let the questions flow
from your tongue to my mind
ask me anything
ask me anything

‘Whose Side Are You On’ — #Lyrics To A Pop-Rock Ballad

This is just relaxing. If I was all that serious about this I wouldn’t be publishing it on this dumb blog and I would spend more than 15 minutes writing it. But it is fun to see if I can tell a story in verse.

Whose Side Are You On
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

I look at your eyes
think of you between my thighs
wonder where your mind is
are you mine or someone else’s
how would I know if it’s all lie
I think and sigh

whose side are you on
I need to know
whose side are you on
I moan and moan

let me know the truth
I need the facts
your lies cut like glass
please be mine totally
devoted as can be

whose side are you on
I need to know
whose side are you on
I moan and moan

[bridge]
I want to believe you
but it’s tough
I just might leave you
if you don’t shoot straight
it’s beginning to get late

whose side are you on
I need to know
whose side are you on
I moan and moan
whose side are you on
I need to know
whose side are you on
I moan and moan

‘Summer Of Rage’ — #Lyrics To Pop-Rock-Folk-Rap Song

This would be a really fast folk-rock-pop song where everything but the chorus was rapped. At least, that’s my vision for it. It would be a little bit like the Run DMC / Aerosmith cross over hit version of “Walk This Way.”

Summer of Rage
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

summer of rage is here
‘gunna bring the heat to the pigs
summer of rage is here
cling tight to what you hold dear

summer of rage

[rapped]
you think you got it figured out
everything that makes you shout
but let me tell you without a doubt
lock your doors not your mind
the summer of rage won’t be kind
we’re going to rock for our freedom
break the back of the Man at last
no one will doubt our might
as we rage until dawn breaks
the end won’t happen I’m afraid
until we make it what we want
which is a return to sanity

summer of rage is here
‘gunna bring the heat to the pigs
summer of rage is here
cling tight to what you hold dear

[rapped]
we’re going to rage all summer
till we break back what we love
we risk being cast out of heaven
if we don’t do something fast
we’re a city on the hill
for real for real
laugh all you like is all I can say
the things we love are at risk
they’re in play because of a big baby
who shits all over himself
speaking garbage every chance he can get
screaming at the top of your lungs
is the only way to deal

summer of rage is here
‘gunna bring the heat to the pigs
summer of rage is here
cling tight to what you hold dear

[bridge]
we’re going to win
is all I can say
we may break a few eggs
along the way
but freedom’s not free
just be sure to vote in the fall

summer of rage is here
‘gunna bring the heat to the pigs
summer of rage is here
cling tight to what you hold dear

‘Intuition’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Song

Just enjoying a little lyric writing. Absolutely no one cares and none of these lyrics will ever be produced, but writing lyrics is relaxing and I honestly have nothing better to do other than look for a job. This would be for a female vocalist.

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

sometimes you never know
but your heart tells you so
we all know which way the wind blows
at least my intuition tells
intuition
intuition
intuition

what my heart tells me is you’re the one
soon enough we’re going to be on the run
people will be gawkin’
the town will be talkin’

knowing what we’re doing when we’re alone
the way I moan when I touch your hand
my intuition tells me
you’ll be the best I ever had

sometimes you never know
but your heart tells you so
we all know which way the wind blows
at least my intuition tells
intuition
intuition
intuition

[bridge]
though my heart tells me so
know I have to keep my eyes open
before my heart breaks
again

sometimes you never know
but your heart tells you so
we all know which way the wind blows
at least my intuition tells
intuition
intuition
intuition

‘Don’t Care’ — #Lyrics To A Pop-Rap Fusion Song

Just enjoying writing some lyrics. No one cares. It’s just relaxing. Everything but the chorus would be rap-sung.

Don’t Care
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

don’t care about Kylie’s lips
or about the size
of her sister’s big olde hips
what you should care about
is leaving your servers a nice tip
’cause every day I see
lady liberty man handled in the press
by our leaders who cry
fake news till they’re blue as the sky

don’t care
not at all
don’t care
don’t care
don’t care
don’t care

don’t care about the latest fued
about what dumb thing the press
wants me to learn
I care about my country
where it’s going
and it’s future
give me some hope about our fate
stop telling me to commensurate
about the latest celebrity wedding
I’m worried about where we’re heading
and you should be too
that’s what I care about

don’t care
not at all
don’t care
don’t care
don’t care
don’t care

[bridge]
one day things will return
back to the way the once were
we’ll be able to ignore the world
just give girls a twirl
but for now I have to care

I care about the truth
care about facts
care about where my nation’s headed
how we can get it back

‘Open Borders’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Rock Ballad

Given that it’s difficult to write about anything political directly, this brings up the issue of open borders, but in the context of a romance gone bad.

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

look at me from across the table
said you’d always call me baby
but those times are over
now I just want open borders

open borders
let them free
open borders
why can’t you see the need
the need for
open borders

when we were young it was so simple
you held my hand in the promised land
we played fools who knew the rules
didn’t think to shut things down
we were such clowns

open borders
let them free
open borders
why can’t you see the need
the need for
open borders

[bridge]
when will others see
what I see
that our love was meant to be
but now we just flee
to our closed borders

open borders
why is this a problem
open borders
let me in
let me in
let me in

‘Where Are The Babies’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Punk Rock Song

This would be one of those pop punk rock fusion songs that was really fast, but you could hear the lyrics well enough that you could sing along. At least, that’s my vision. But no one listens to me and this is just relaxing.

Where Are The Babies
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

turn on my TV eat my dinner a
what do I hear but the screams of children torn
from their mother’s breast
what do I have to do to attest my rage
that my country is engaged in this shame

where are the babies
I scream
where are the babies
I want to question the powers that be
where are the babies
where are the babies
where are the babies

those in control are quite droll
tell me we’re on a roll
making America great again
but I hang my head in shame
lulz, nothing matters but
where are the babies

when will I get the answer
will Jeff Sessions stop lying to me
thousands of children are in a void
I’m supposed to ignore their fate
even at this late date

where are the babies
I scream
where are the babies
I want to question the powers that be
where are the babies
where are the babies
where are the babies

[bridge]
when this is all over
we can go back
to talking about the weather
but for now we have to rage
until we get the answer to my question

where are the babies
I scream
where are the babies
I want to question the powers that be
where are the babies
where are the babies
where are the babies

‘Eat In Peace’ — #Lyrics To A Rock Song

I like this one. It’s interesting. But I’m just relaxing writing lyrics. No one listens to me. No one cares.

Eat In Peace
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

babies cry in cages
longing for their papi
while you drink your sake
you’re a monster it’s true
you won’t eat in peace forever

never again will you eat in peace
never again will you eat in peace
never again will you eat in peace

complain all you like
but the people are stirring
you’re going for a ride
no more cake for us

we’re gonna bum rush Trump Tower
if that’s what it takes
to free those kids
there lives are at stake

never again will you eat in peace
never again will you eat in peace
never again will you eat in peace

[bridge]
when the babies are freed
we’ll put you on a leash
parade you around the streets
you create the monsters you keep

be prepared to
never again eat in peace
never again eat in peace
never again eat in peace

‘Cages’ — #Lyrics To A Folk Rock Song

Just screwing around. Enjoy.

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

[hook]
babies in cages
what are we going to do
babies in cages
won’t quit till their free

think we’ve forgotten
forgotten so quick
but let me tell you
that’s not going to stick

babies in cages
babies in cages
babies in cages

Uncle Sam’s putting babies in cages
we gotta set’em free
that’s all I know
that’s all I know

[bridge]
don’t talk to me about Obama
that’s not the issue
we’ve got children in cages
gotta free’em soon

[hook]
babies in cages
what are we going to do
babies in cages
won’t quit till their free

babies in cages
babies in cages
babies in cages

‘Postcards To Voters’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Rock Ballad

Just screwing around. In the mood to write lyrics. No one listens to me. This is just relaxing.

Postcards To Voters
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

the world is turning on its axis
we all want to be famous
twirl around and let me see
your claim to fame, baby

postcards to voters
is what we need
postcards to voters
oh say can you see

the nation is on its knees
worried about the state it’s in
leave the debate to the mavens
I say let’s roll

don’t blame me if we’re screwed
I know what to do you fool
walk as quick as can be
once the polls open my friend

postcards to voters
is what we need
postcards to voters
oh say can you see

[bridge]
there’s hope this fall
if we have the gall
to install a new government
to take care of it all

see you at the polls
see you at the polls
see you at the polls
see you at the polls
