‘NYFW’ — #Lyrics To Pop-Rock-Rap Song About Cardi B Fighting Nicki Minaj

I’m just an ignorant white boy in all of this, but I thought it merited some lyrics. Whatever it was that was going on.

NYFW

who throws a shoe
who throws a fucking shoe

two girls beefin
during New York Fashion Week
they got problems it’s obvious to see
but who am I to complain
they don’t care what we think
got things they got to explicate
but in the end I gotta say

who throws a shoe
who throws a fucking shoe
but I guess what else are you going to do
when you see your rival during
New York Fashion Week
New York Fashion Week
New York Fashion Week

girls will be girls
when you see a bitch you hate
you gotta throw what you got
to get her attention
but what’s it all about
don’t even know for sure
maybe one day it’ll all come out
I think it will
without a doubt
without a doubt

who throws a shoe
who throws a fucking shoe
but I guess what else are you going to do
when you see your rival during
New York Fashion Week
New York Fashion Week
New York Fashion Week

[bridge]
when it all comes out
we’ll have a reason to shout
but don’t you have any doubt
we’re all going to rock in the end
no matter who’s to blame

who throws a shoe
who throws a fucking shoe
but I guess what else are you going to do
when you see your rival during
New York Fashion Week
New York Fashion Week
New York Fashion Week

‘Making Faces’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Rock Ballad Inspired By #PlaidShirtGuy

I just like the phrase “making faces” and it seems like a good title to a pop rock ballad.

Making Faces
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

politicians making speeches
the world continues to turn
lovers moan and moan
feeling warm breath of the sun
as they tumble between the sheets
but we all know in the end

we’re just making faces
making faces is what’s going on
we’re just making faces
making faces is what’s going on

we don’t have to worry anymore
Secret Service has us protected
no matter how many faces may be made
in the end we just enjoy the humming economy
knowing we’re going to get laid and get caught
making faces

we’re just making faces
making faces is what’s going on
we’re just making faces
making faces is what’s going on

[bridge]
keep a straight face
if you can
that’s the plan, the plan
don’t let them see you
making faces

we’re just making faces
making faces is what’s going on
we’re just making faces
making faces is what’s going on

‘Lodestar’ — #Lyrics To A Pop-Rock Song

Just screwing around with lyrics. Lodestar sounds like a Radiohead song title.

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

the world’s falling down it seems
at least from I can glean
twirl you around for a better view
what are we going to
we need a lodestar

lodestar brighten my way
lodestar what will we do
when we’re done with you
lodestar
lodestar
lodestar

people in the streets scream for change
hoping this is all a nightmare
but when it’s over I fear
there won’t be much left for us to love
stealing papers from a desk
hoping nothing will blow up

lodestar brighten my way
lodestar what will we do
when we’re done with you
lodestar
lodestar
lodestar

[bridge]
when we’re at least free
no more need to flee
running towards victory
this will be in the past
eventually, eventually, eventually

lodestar brighten my way
lodestar what will we do
when we’re done with you
lodestar
lodestar
lodestar

‘Bite My Lip’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Song

This is my attempt at a Taylor Swift smack-dab-in-the-middle of pop music song. Say what you will about her, she can write a pop song.

Bite My Lip
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

our eyes locked before I entered the bar
saw you through the patio on my way in
knew from the moment you were in my life
things were going to change
when I look back at that moment
I can’t help but bite my lip

bite my lip
every time I recall
bite my lip
knowing our love is true
bite my lip
bite my lip
bite my lip

you make me bite my lip with desire
thinking of how we’re going to take it higher
how’s it all going to end
you tell don’t you worry
we’re all going to succeed
in our desires given the light of the midnight sun
we’ll be on the run between the sheets
no one will know what hit them
when we arrive late to the party
knowing smiles on our faces
I’ll turn to you and bite my lip
bite my lip
bite my lip

bite my lip
every time I recall
bite my lip
knowing our love is true
bite my lip
bite my lip
bite my lip

[bridge]
our eyes will lock
our lips will touch
close your eyes with a sigh
knowing I’m always yours
no matter what

bite my lip
every time I recall
bite my lip
knowing our love is true
bite my lip
bite my lip
bite my lip

‘Love After Life’ — #Lyrics To A Pop-Rock Ballad

This is meant to be an ode to middle aged love, but I don’t know if anyone would figure that out unless I told them.

Love After Life
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

things seem dire
like we can’t get much higher
but the ring of my phone
makes me emit one last moan
liars come and go
but your love shows
after life seems over
I can get a do-over

love after life
feels just right
love after light
fills my heart with delight

when the game seems at and end
there’s no more room for the midnight sun
the need for a little sin is over
life is fading in my heart
don’t think anything can get it to jump start
you come into my life with a grin
making me want to sing

what more could I ask for at this time
but someone to help think up my rhymes
you’re here for my overtime
long after it seems no one cares
you give me reason to believe again

love after life
feels just right
love after light
fills my heart with delight

[bridge]
maybe life’s not over just yet
I’m willing to play that bet
roll over and let me see
the joys you want to bring to me

love after life
love after life
love after life
love after life

‘Starburst’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Country Song

These lyrics are inspired by Kacey Musgraves’ Slow Burn.

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

we’re all made of stardust they say
I, for one, wouldn’t want it any other way
all I know is when you’re near me
I feel the stars above explode
leaving me feeling like a starburst

starburst of joy
that’s my love for you
starburst of joy
more than just a moment’s mood
starburst
starburst
starburst

feeling the sun shine down on my face
realizing we’re not in a race
one day this will all be over
lace will touch skin
we’ll dabble in a bit of sin
you’ll feel my starburst with your hand
and it’ll begin again

starburst of joy
that’s my love for you
starburst of joy
more than just a moment’s mood
starburst
starburst
starburst

[bridge]
when the sun sets its still there
just like when you’re gone
my love for you holds true
what else am I going to do

starburst of joy
that’s my love for you
starburst of joy
more than just a moment’s mood
starburst
starburst
starburst

‘Be The Power’ — #Lyrics To An Old School Rap Song

These lyrics are meant to up a homage, a spiritual successor to Public Enemy’s Fight The Power.

Be The Power
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

they told us long ago
to fight the power
well it’s a new century
the power we want to be is within
no need to fight it be it

be the power
be the power
make the change you want
be the power
be the power

we’re run by the Russians
the tweeting tyrant tells us no
hit the streets if you want to hear yes
don’t be afraid to express your views
just expect to be in the news
they want to keep us down
out of the people’s house with their lies
but we’re going to bring the down

be the power
be the power
make the change you want
be the power
be the power

[bridge]
don’t expect me to be quiet
now while the they grow rich
as the population grows poor
they’re going to hear us roar

I don’t expect it to be easy
we’re ready to do what it takes
getting their attention will be tough
but we got to make it so they can’t ignore us
be the power
be the power
be the power
be the power

‘Enemy Of The People’ — #Lyrics To A Rock Song

Trump definitely has a way of generating song titles, is all I gotta say.

Enemy Of The People
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

you say you’re one of us
tell us the truth
when we’re doubt
but what’s that all about

we don’t want the facts
just want lies
that fly high into the sky
when will it all be by and by

enemy of the people
raging against the night
enemy of the people
tell us what is right
tell us what is right

Just want some peace
flying at the speed of light
some delight to end my fright
the enemy of the people
will open my eyes

what it all means
I can’t seem to glean
maybe I’m not meant
to believe my senses
that’s what Big Brother says

enemy of the people
raging against the night
enemy of the people
tell us what is right
tell us what is right

[bridge]
when will this end
when will air be free again
why are we fighting over this
this shouldn’t be an issue
but it is
but it is
but it is

enemy of the people
raging against the night
enemy of the people
tell us what is right
tell us what is right

‘After The Witch Hunt’ — #Lyrics To A Rock Song

Benjamin Wittes gave me a challenge and so here are my lyrics. Someone else will have to put them to music. 🙂

After The Witch Hunt
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

just wait Vlad
wait until the time is right
I’ll betray my nation again
with a smile on my face
it’ll be a big disgrace

after the witch hunt
after the witch hunt
the news will come
after the witch hunt

we’re all rolling around in glas
many people are going to get hurt
I’ll blurt it all out into my shirt
not much isn’t known
I’m just a traitor

but things are too hot now
can’t meet you right away
I’ll wait for a little bit
until things are better
maybe right before the mid-terms

after the witch hunt
after the witch hunt
the news will come
after the witch hunt

[bridge]
why are people so upset
they don’t understand the jest
you’ve got me by the short ones
as everyone knows

after the witch hunt
after the witch hunt
the news will come
after the witch hunt

‘Owning The Libs’ — #Lyrics To A Rock Song

Just like telling stories in verse. These lyrics are just a rough draft, but it’s relaxing. No one ever listens to me, but I enjoy venting about how shitty Trump and his followers are in verse.

Owning The Libs
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

blow your hand off with a grin
anything you can do to own the libs
it’s all you want to do

owning the libs
is your goal
owning the libs
is your goal
owning the libs
why do you do this shit

burn the nation to the ground
run around hoping for the end
turn the keys over to the Reds
hoping they’ll get rid of the libs

why are you so sure the libs are bad
do you have any idea how you’ve been had
lies are all around you I’m afraid
your master implants them in your brain

owning the libs
is your goal
owning the libs
is your goal
owning the libs
why do you do this shit

[bridge]
the truth will set you free
that’s the way it’s meant to be
why are you so afraid of the facts
your desire to own the libs
is absolute

owning the libs
is your goal
owning the libs
is your goal
owning the libs
why do you do this shit
