‘Drive Me To Drink’ — #Lyrics To A Pop R&B Song

The news these days suck. This is a little attempt to express how it makes me feel.

Drive Me To Drink
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner

watching the news
things zoom through
what can I say
much to my dismay
it’s enough to
drive me to drink

drive me to drink
it’s all a little too dark
drive me to drink
just to slink into the dark
drive me to drink
drive me to drink
drive me to drink

why is it this way
I have to say
things once were sane
but that’s no more

the presence tense is the worse
just wish I could fix it quick
but it’s not to be
maybe I’ll buy another beer

drive me to drink
it’s all a little too dark
drive me to drink
just to slink into the dark
drive me to drink
drive me to drink
drive me to drink

[bridge]
sober as I can be
things don’t seem to change
all I want to do is cry
as I try to forget it all

we’re going to take it higher
to the next level
when it’s all over I say
we’ll no longer think
it’s about to

drive me to drink
it’s all a little too dark
drive me to drink
just to slink into the dark
drive me to drink
drive me to drink
drive me to drink

‘Rouge Killers’ — #Lyrics To An R&B Pop Song

It is completely pointless for me to write lyrics, but sometimes I feel like doing it as a treat so here you go. Trump has a way with words, or at least thinking up song titles and concepts.

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

they roam the streets and the clubs
looking for people like you and me
they want to drain us dry of love of this world

rouge killers of love
in between the sheets
always wanting your deets
are you kidding me?

looking all fly
wanting to be your guy
they bite their lip
before giving you the slip
they’re the ones mamma warned you about
the lie, lie and lie

rouge killers of love
in between the sheets
always wanting your deets
are you kidding me?

[bridge]
need someone safe
to but me back together
why does it have to be so rough
when will I finally get enough?

stop kidding me I beg
rough killers are in your head
faking you out with their doubt
making you feel like you’re right
to be left out

rouge killers of love
in between the sheets
always wanting your deets
are you kidding me?

rouge killers
rouge killers
rouge killers
rouge killers of love

‘How It Works’ — #Lyrics To A R&B Song

This meme originally comes from a TV commercial. But whatever. No one listens to me. No one cares.

How It Works
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

see you walk by in the dark club
rub your lips together till their wet
can see it in your strut
that you got lust in your heart
put your had on my side and I sigh
as I say

that’s not how it works
that’s not how any of this works
that’s not how it works
that’s not how any of this works

think you’re going to get me in your crib
you believe you’re living in my head
but let me be clear babe
you’re got it all wrong
I’m my own person it’s true
so before you make your move let me be clear

that’s not how it works
that’s not how any of this works
that’s not how it works
that’s not how any of this works

[bridge]
work it slow
give me room of my own
maybe you’ll touch heaven soon enough
or I may kick your into hell
for you to dwell on your sins

that’s not how it works
that’s not how any of this works
that’s not how it works
that’s not how any of this works

‘25% Less’ — #Lyrics To An R&B-Pop Song

I’m just screwing around. Trump keeps producing song titles and lyrics at an alarming rate, so much so it’s kind of surreal. This title comes from him saying he likes Taylor Swift “25% Less.” Sounds like two lovers arguing to me. Hence, these lyrics. These lyrics are ok. Definitely a first draft. But, remember, I just like writing lyrics. It’s relaxing.

25% Less
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@sheltbumgarner
please give credit if you produce or perform

you slam the door in my face
hoping I’ll roar in disgrace
but I see you nude tip-toe on the lamb
coming back my way in the dark
your anger has faded
you’re so easy to be persuaded
ask me if I love you still
touch your nose softly and smile as I say

25% less
out of infinity
25% less
taken from the end of time
25% less
25% less
25% less

I’m always going to be by your side
slide into bed late at night
know you’ll always own my heart
with a body like that and a mind that won’t quit
how am I supposed to compete
I’ve love you 100% more till the end of time

25% less
out of infinity
25% less
taken from the end of time
25% less
25% less
25% less

[bridge]
I’ll top you off with my love
give you my all and then some
you only deserve the best I believe
no matter how much I want to take from you
I’ll give you my 100%

25% less
out of infinity
25% less
taken from the end of time
25% less
25% less
25% less

‘Void’ — #Lyrics To A R&B-Pop Song

Now, I have no beat, but I have a concept. This would be a FKA Twigs kind of song. A dark, pop-R&B vibe that was slow and soulful. But, whatever. I just like to tell stories in verse and I find there to be a creative purity to it sense the entire song-writing business is designed to prevent some rando like me from breaking into it.

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

you’re on the edge of a cliff
my love is waiting for you
will you set yourself free
jump into my arms
fill my void

my hips know their place
I’ve got the grace

fall into my void
fall into my void
you’ll hear me roar
when our bodies slap
in the big black void

it won’t hurt one bit
just let me lick my lips
refresh your memory
of what to expect in the void
I’ll break your heart
but you’ll ask for more

I’m waiting for you
the void is calling
it’s warm and wet
like nothing you can expect
when will come my way to stay

my hips know their place
I’ve got the grace

fall into my void
fall into my void
you’ll hear me roar
when our bodies slap
in the big black void

[bridge]
know you’re worried
but have no fear
we’ll be in the clear
I’ll steer your right
in my garden of delight

my void is aching for you
never faking what I got
I’ll take all you with an arch
you’ll never look back
once you fall into my void

ready as I’ll ever be
the sea has nothing on me
when you dive into my void
you’ll be safe for eternity

‘How’s It Going To End’ — #Lyrics To A Pop-R&B Song

I love the idea of a song starting relationships for no other reason than it prompts a guy to take a chance of a woman he notices. That’s the kind of power only an artist has and I want it. Anyway, his would be to a Jhene Aiko type fusion beat. Maybe a little bit faster than her usual stuff, but I just write the lyrics. It’s up to someone else to determine the music to go along with it.

How’s It Going To End
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

eye you across the way
lower my sunglasses and cock an eye
wonder what you surmise
do you think of delight
between my thighs at night
are you serious or just joshing
with that grin
how’s it going to end

we’re just two ships
sailing towards our fate

how’s it going to end
are we about to sin
begin again
or just walk away with a grin
how’s it going to end
how’s it going to end

I’m no dope
I know you’ve got hope
of my slight touch
feeling the warmth of my breath
on your face in the dark
is this just a lark
or are you going to work for me

other girls might admire you
but I’d own you given the chance
I doubt you have it in you
to put in the effort for my attention
I guess we’ll see
how it’s going to end

we’re just two ships
sailing towards our fate

how’s it going to end
are we about to sin
begin again
or just walk away with a grin
how’s it going to end
how’s it going to end

[bridge]
when we finally meet
and you sweep me off my feet
will you remember the moment we locked eyes
realized our fate was in the stars

how’s it going end

I’m waiting for you to come over
waiting for you to make your move
what happens next is up to you

how’s it going to end
how’s it going to end
how’s it going to end

‘Bra & Panties’ — #Lyrics To An R&B Song

Just like the phrase “bra and panties” and the idea that if a woman’s bra and panties match when she takes her clothes off in front of you, she seduced you. This would be an R&B beat, whatever that means.

Bra & Panties
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

look in the mirror
what do I see
but black bra and panties
waiting for my time
to throw down
he won’t know what hit him
the sin will be too much
’cause I know he likes it rough
once he sees my

bra and panties
only the best
bra and panties
show a little bit of flesh

he thinks he’s got his eye on me
when I’ve got my eye on him
I’ll let him win
but I’ll claim my victory
when he’s moaning on top of me
he won’t know what to say when he sees my

bra and panties
only the best
bra and panties
show a little bit of flesh

[bridge]
a little passion is my fashion
when I see his smile
things will break my way
as they always do
without fail

there’s nothing he can do
he’ll have to swoon
when he get a sight of my
bra and panties
bra and panties
bra and panties

‘FOTUS’ — #Lyrics To A Woke R&B Song

Right now, either the media powers that be are looking into the FOTUS scandal theory or they’re not. Either we’re closer to knowing the truth, or I’ve just made a fool out of myself in public yet again. As part of my effort to process this as if it was Broidy and I need to move on, here’s are lyrics to an R&B song with a music in my imagination that might be in a The Weeknd song. I have no beat, but I just enjoy telling a story in verse. So, there you go. This would be for a woman to sing.

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

met you at the mansion
when I caught your eye and you touched my thigh
things went from their as they say
can’t explain what happened next
was by your side NYC on a September night
passion was our middle name
soon enough, though the truth came out

FOTUS
it’s your baby
it’s your baby
FOTUS
FOTUS
FOTUS
now it’s gone

found myself in a troublesome state
Davidson was your man
he and Cohen made the dirty deal real
they demanded a life for the green
desperate as I was I said yes
now I look back in shame to this day
you’re in the White House signing gag orders
while a death was done at your command

FOTUS
it’s your baby
it’s your baby
FOTUS
FOTUS
FOTUS
now it’s gone

[bridge]
what was I thinking
why did I do it I ask myself
but now it’s all changed
’cause you command the codes
and we know how it goes

it’s now in the news
what am I going to do
how long will this story hold
will Coop tell the truth when asked
our will you survive another day
to blast our freedoms away

FOTUS
FOTUS
FOTUS
FOTUS

‘Spygate’ — #Lyrics To A Woke R&B Pop Song

This would be in the same vibe as Drake or The Weeknd. Chuck D used to say music was the CNN of the African American community and as such this song would be a way to slip in some politics into a song that had a smooth beat.

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

it’s criminal what you’ve been doing
I see you walking around the neighborhood
rushing around with your new friends
what does it mean
why do you just want to flee
you used to be the one for me
now it’s crime against man
it’s a

Spygate (x6)

we’re all in this together
why can’t we fly up into the heavens
like we used to do
when we were in love
I have to spy on you here and there
bigger than Watergate
you’re doing it on the fly
leaving me just to sigh

Spygate (x6)

[bridge]
nothing has changed
in my heart
you make me want to dart
where to start

I don’t know what it all means
will we ever be as one
late at night wearing only love
or am I doomed to be
all alone

‘Criminal Deep State’ — #Lyrics To Woke R&B Song

Guys, the president is insane. But he does have a way with a turn of phrase. So, in honor of this on-going political horror movie we’re all forced to watch, here are my ham-handed effort at trying to tell a story in verse. The beat to this would like something you might find with The Weeknd. At least, that’s my vision for this.

Criminal Deep State
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

you leave me with my head in my hands
sitting on the side of my bed
wondering about this deep state I’m in
was it all a dream
all that living in sin
it’s criminal what you did to me
fucking with my head again and again

it’s a criminal deep state
out to get me
it’s a criminal deep state
spies all around
spies all around
spies all around

when you told me you loved me
did you have to rub the pain in
with salt from your tears
the state of mind you’ve left me in
fills me with dread
I know I could have done better
but once you left me light as a feather

it’s a criminal deep state
out to get me
it’s a criminal deep state
spies all around
spies all around
spies all around

[bridge]
but you’re gone now
at least I think
sometimes I think I see you
but it’s just the criminal deep state
you left me in

I hope it’s all a dream
the birds I hear tweeting to me
I don’t know when it will end
this nightmare you’ve left me in
but all I know it’s criminal
the state you’ve left me in

it’s a criminal deep state
out to get me
it’s a criminal deep state
spies all around
spies all around
spies all around
