‘We’ll Be Free’ — #Lyrics To An R&B Song

This is just me riffing off Jhene Aiko beats. I sometimes like to decompress a little bit by writing lyrics, even though I know they will absolutely never be performed and the whole endeavor is completely useless and a waste of time.

We’ll Be Free

Nothing is as it seems
Or maybe that’s just me
Hoping to glean some meaning to it all
But I’m ready for us to fall to the top

There’s not one drop I’d give up
Between you and me

We’ll be free
We’ll be free
We’ll be free

I’m ready for one last shot
Maybe write a bop with you in mind
But you’ll just smile and laugh
Tell me I’m a gas

I believe you’re wrong
I believe you’re wrong

Just you wait and see
We’re all going to join as one
Once this long road ahead of us ends
When the journey is done

There’s not one drop I’d give up
Between you and me

We’ll be free
We’ll be free
We’ll be free

(bridge)
I’m not a slave
Your love is my liberty
When the chains of sadness
Tie me down on the ground
I look at you and know

We’ll be free
We’ll be free
We’ll be free

‘Score’ — #Lyrics To A Country-Pop Song

This definitely has a pop-country vibe to it. Too bad it’s impossible to break into the music business at my age, especially the way I’m doing it.
Oh well.

‘Score’
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner

I knew the score with a roar
When I met you at the high school door
You were my type I knew without a doubt
No one caught my eye the way you did

The score of our life flashes across my eyes
You’re always going to score the goal
When you I go for a roll in the hay
It was a score ago but it could have been today

I scored the game putting down
the scores of your fame
No one else to blame
for what happened next
We were necking in the backseat
before you took off your cleats

The score of our life flashes across my eyes
You’re always going to score the goal
When you I go for a roll in the hay
It was a score ago but it could have been today

(bridge)
No need to tell me what happens next
Love and heartbreak go hand in hand
But sometimes things work out
And you have to put your fears down

It was all a score ago I’m afraid
Now I look into your eyes one last time
Cause I know the score for sure
No one tells you how this game will end
But maybe that’s besides the point
When the score is tied

‘Write A Book’ — A Lyrical Homage To Taylor Swift Songs

The thing with this one is while tonally it’s an attempt at a Taylor Swift type song, it’s not properly done structurally. But the conceit is pretty good. I think.

‘Write A Book’
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

Tapping my pen to pad
I see you across the coffee shop
And you smile
I smile back
‘Cause you seem
You seem like my type
That is
Out of sight

But will you walk over
And ask me my name
What would be the shame
You could make history
Or you could just

Write a book
Write a book
Write a book

I get up and walk your way
Hoping you’ll tell me what I wanna hear
What your name
What’s your claim to fame
But I walk on by without a sound
Feeling a little bit let down

But one day maybe it’ll change
Maybe one day my dream will come true
No more nightmares for me
I’ll be in the clear with someone dearl
Someone who wants to kiss
Instead of

Write a book
Write a book
Write a book

(bridge)
The truth is
Why is life so unfair
I have to wait for fate to arrive
Someone who makes me sigh
Waiting by the phone
With a grone

But in the end
All I can think is
I’ll find my name in a book
Knowing that a smile lead someone to

Write a book
Write a book
Write a book

‘millennial burnout’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Rock Song

Just like trying to tell a story in verse meant to be sung.

The sky’s the limit on my student loan debt
But don’t you fret I got a cat to pet
She’s a real cutie with a nice booty
Let’s me feed her avocado toast
While our clothes are at the laundromat
We’re too poor to buy a house
It’s all part of

millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout

We’re fighting a two front war
Living with our folks with a roar
People think we’re lazy
But I just think they’re hazy
‘Cause I work two jobs with a degree
Won’t someone take care of me

The jet set worry about their miles
While I’m rolling my eyes
‘Cuase I got not staycation on my horizon
I’m so broke I can’t get no help
That student loan debt is making me flip

millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout

(bridge)
X marks the spot
Out out it ain’t coming out
Maybe in the year 3000
I’ll have it all figured out
But for now
All I can say is
I got

millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout


‘Do You Got A Man’ — #Lyrics To A Dance Pop Song

This is just me letting off steam. No one cares. It’s supposed to be a pop rock song.

Do You Got A Man
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

I see you walking near me
The way you strut is making it rough
Making it rough for me to ignore your stuff
So all I gotta say much to my dismay is

Do you got a man?

Do you got a man?
What’s his name?
What’s his game?
Do you got a man?
Let me ask you one question
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?

Other girls got boys on their arms
I know if I chat them up a risk harm
But you’re a babe for all to see
So not knowing your status
Is really letting me have it

I promise if you’re free
I won’t say anything to make you flee
But I might ask you out
That’s for sure without a doubt

Do you got a man?

Do you got a man?
What’s his name?
What’s his game?
Do you got a man?
Let me ask you one question
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?

(bridge)

Once you’re mine
It will be sublime
Other people will know
Don’t you know
So they don’t have to ask
That I’m your man

Do you got a man?
Let me ask you one question
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?

‘Peaches’ — #Lyrics To A Dance Pop Song

I feel bad for the singer Peaches that Trump would sully her name with his stupid “you can call it peaches” quote about the wall, so here what are meant to be dance pop lyrics.

Peaches
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

You can call it whatever you like
You can call it peaches if you like
If helps you fuck the pain away
But no matter what you say
No matter what you do
It’s still fucking wall

Peaches won’t separate us
Peaches taste so good
Let’s eat them not built them
Peaches won’t separate us
Peaches taste so good
Let’s eat them not built them

Don’t you worry
Don’t you fret
The best of peaches is to come
But these peaches are based on love not hate
You’ve just got to see what freedom is
To accept my plea

Peaches won’t separate us
Peaches taste so good
Let’s eat them not built them
Peaches won’t separate us
Peaches taste so good
Let’s eat them not built them

(bridge)
Bridge peaches with a smile
Overcome your peaches fears
A latter is all you need
Nice and strong and ready to come
When asked

Peaches won’t separate us
Peaches taste so good
Let’s eat them not built them
Peaches won’t separate us
Peaches taste so good
Let’s eat them not built them

AOC — #Lyrics To A Rock Song

I’m using the AC/DC song T.N.T as the basis of this one, but you could probably — with a producer and some tinkering — come up with something that had its own beat structure.

AOC
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

She’s a girl from The Bronx
Will walk you like a dog
If you don’t get along
Her plan is to help the poor fight, fight, fight
Here’s her name so don’t you forget
She’s AOC

She’s the future I tell you
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC
Going to slay the patriarchy
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC

Bring the spirit of JFK, RFK, MLK to the fore
She’s here to rock and roll
If you have any reason to forget
She’ll remind you of her name, don’t you fret
From the block wearing hoops on her ears
She’s AOC, AOC, AOC

She’s the future I tell you
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC
Going to slay the patriarchy
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC

(Bridge)
Maybe she’ll be POTUS one day
But for now she’ll clap back when you attack
Just because you’re stupid
Isn’t her affair
She just wants what is fair
She’s the future I tell you
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC
Going to slay the patriarchy
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC

Very Cool — #Lyrics To A Pop Rock Song

This is dumb. No one reads any of these or if they do they think they suck. But I can’t help it that Trump generates song titles and concepts without thinking about it.

Very Cool
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

I can get away with anything
If I do it, it’s very legal, very cool
I rule this land with a very shaky hand
But like I said

I’m very legal
I’m very cool
I’m very legal
I’m very cool
And I rule

When will it start to sink in
That you’re going to be my friend
It shouldn’t be so difficult to see
That you were meant for me
I can make you an ambassador
I can land a man on the moon for you
What more do I have to do

Women let me blow their minds
The rails of success can’t hold me
‘Cause I’m bigger in life than on the TV
I’m always going to be kind of your heart
Make your eyes dart, dart, dart
When things break down you’ll see

I’m very legal
I’m very cool
I’m very legal
I’m very cool
And I rule

[bridge]

If I do it
It’s not illegal is what they say
So if we get all freaky
Then the only laws we break will
Those of sin
Where to begin, where to begin

I’m very legal
I’m very cool
I’m very legal
I’m very cool
And I rule

‘Individual 1’ — #Lyrics To A Dance Pop Song

Individual 1
Lyrics by Shelton bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

Paid my bills ‘cause I had my thrills
My fixer does the hard work while I play
Running the country leaves me in dismay
While my enemies are in despair
Women come and go when you’re at the top
When you’re

Individual 1

We’re all here for a short amount of time
History may not repeat but it does rhyme
I lie in bed all day lying with my words

But I’m individual 1, individual 1, individual 1
Individual 1, individual 1, individual 1, individual 1
I’m at the top of my game
If you need someone to blame it’s not me
The buck stops with everyone
But not with me, but not with me

I’m in control of the nuke codes
If I sneeze wrong everything you know goes
The smoke will make you choke, choke, choke
And winter will never end, believe you me
Russia will always be in my heart
Girls who give me golden in showers be best
My main chick doesn’t give me what I request

We’re all here for a short amount of time
History may not repeat but it does rhyme
I lie in bed all day lying with my words

But I’m individual 1, individual 1, individual 1
Individual 1, individual 1, individual 1, individual 1
I’m at the top of my game
If you need someone to blame it’s not me
The buck stops with everyone
But not with me, but not with me
I’m telling you one last time
I can spin on a dime
Bright as can be when you’re me
People will look the other way
Even when you’re a risk to the world
They may fret but they’ll be my bitch
‘Cause of the power of the office
When you’re individual 1

They let you do it
They let you do it
They let you do it

‘Shut Down’ — #Lyrics To A Rock Song

I have no idea what I’m doing and I only write song lyrics to let off some steam. That’s it. So, it’s not like I expect anything to come of writing this. Just like to tell stories in verse.

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


the sun is setting
we’re all betting on our next paycheck
if we don’t get it we’ll be a wreck
but don’t you fret
not one bit
the shut down will be over just yet

the shut down is causing waves
the shut down may last until our graves
our leaders are shut down from our cries
how long until our demise?

I’m not ready to swim into the blue
people know the truth
the devil’s in the details isn’t it
don’t you think we’re too old
to squabble over something so bold

the shut down is causing waves
the shut down may last until our graves
our leaders are shut down from our cries
how long until our demise?

[Bridge]
open up the government
I demand it I say
why is it so difficult for something to easy
to be made is my refrain

now is the time for the powers to greet
maybe let a few people make ends meet
when will this shut down end
don’t know my friend
don’t know my friend
don’t know my friend
