Dystopia in the US

I live in a dystopia
I’m told lies everyday
by the people in charge

I don’t wanna be
in
the dystopia in the US
the dystopia in the US
the dystopia in the US

we’re better than this
or at least I thought
that’s what I was taught
this shame is going to leave a mark

no going back I’m afraid
they’re going to come for you and me
once they get done crushing the immigrants
gunna make us all live in a cage
it’s all the rage!

I don’t wanna be
in
the dystopia in the US
the dystopia in the US
the dystopia in the US

(bridge)
how did things change so fast
leaving all our hope in the past
now it’s stand and fight
or just be another dog in a cage

I don’t wanna be
in
the dystopia in the US
the dystopia in the US
the dystopia in the US

‘Leaving Manhattan’ — #Lyrics To A #Pop #Rock Song

Leaving Manhattan
Lyrics By Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

Everyday is like the last
Think it’s going to be a gas
When you leave Manhattan at last
But we all know, you’re never going to go
No matter how many times you say in a row
That it’s your fate, don’t you know

Leaving Manhattan
No one is to blame
Leaving manhattan
Maybe one day you’ll see the island by plane
But we all know you’re never
Leaving manhattan
Leaving Manhattan
Leaving Manhattan

Just another whiff
Of your cigarette
And the people around you will complain
Tell you to hop that train
But you know it’s just all very lame

In the end you’ll be in the Midwest
Remembering what you lost
All the coffeeshops where you were the boss
But no one will remember in the end
How you never left Manhattan
No matter the cost

Leaving Manhattan
No one is to blame
Leaving manhattan
Maybe one day you’ll see the island by plane
But we all know you’re never
Leaving manhattan
Leaving Manhattan
Leaving Manhattan

(bridge)
You’ll stay forever that’s for sure
They’ll name a street after you
Or maybe a chair at your favorite bar
You won’t go far
Especially not midtown
That would leave a scar

But you’re ready for flight
If even for upstate
Anything at this point
To lift the weight

Leaving Manhattan
No one is to blame
Leaving manhattan
Maybe one day you’ll see the island by plane
But we all know you’re never
Leaving manhattan
Leaving Manhattan
Leaving Manhattan

Jack Black
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner

Sometimes it’s jack and sometimes it’s black
But in the end we all know it’s whack
If you don’t love me in the end
All we got is

Jack Black
Jack Black
Jack Black
Be mine or let me leave
To force me to choose is too much
Believe me

Girls come and go
Some are hot and some are not
They can be good in bed or not
But all I know is I want you
If you leave it will be black as night
Jackshit is to much for me to bear

I’m ready for you to be mine one way or another
You’re going to to love me I know for sure
If you don’t then I am unaware
If the end of this will be all that fair

If you don’t love me in the end
All we got is

Jack Black
Jack Black
Jack Black
Be mine or let me leave
To force me to choose is too much
Believe me

(bridge)
No need for this bridge to exist
Jane or June is just as fine
But you’re not telling me the truth I can tell
Let me tell you what I know
You’re just as fun, just as fun, just as fun

When are we going to straighten things out
So I won’t have to scream and shout
All I need is just a taste of your love
To know if you’re going to be the one for me
Otherwise, I’ll just scream

‘Forward’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Rock Song

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

The trick is to go forward
No matter what they say
Don’t blame anyone but yourself
If you don’t get laid, laid, laid

The girls will exclaim you’re just lame
But you and I know that’s not the same
As putting yourself out there for the fame

Forward is the only way
Forward is your direction
Forward
Forward
Forward
Any other way is backwards, my friend

If you’re not breathing then you’re dead
You’re going to have to face
That you’re in the red
Don’t believe what you’ve read
Girls like you’d that’s the truth
They will, at least, if you produce

You can’t edit a blank page
If you write what the people want
You might just get laid
But don’t blame me
If you choke
You’ve got the will within you to produce great art

Forward is the only way
Forward is your direction
Forward
Forward
Forward
Any other way is backwards, my friend
(Bridge)
No one will listen to you
If you just say oh shoot
Publish or perish I have to say
You want to get laid
I mean that as no shade

Now is time to do your job
Rob from the greats if that’s your thing
In the end you’ll be seen as great
Maybe finally get a date
With a girl you sees you a a catch
How long that will last
Is anyone’s guess




‘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
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

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
Please give credit if you produce or preform

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.

millennial burnout

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
