‘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

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

‘D.C. Shuffle’ — #Lyrics To A Woke R&B Song

I love me some Prince and I have the whole bonkers Shera Bechard — Elliot Broidy — Donald Trump issue on the brain, so these lyrics are me trying to tell that potential story in verse. I don’t really have any beat to go with these lyrics, but it would be a fast Prince song like in my imagination.

D.C. Shuffle
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

she fell in love with a powerful man
who told her he had the fate of the world
the fate of the world in his hands
they met in L.A. as you do
they were dancing with the bunnies
who had sin in their hearts and in their eyes
before the night was over he was between her thighs
they were doing the

D.C. shuffle
the D.C. shuffle
you know it by heart
once you get a taste of power
the D.C. shuffle is your thing
the D.C. shuffle will make you sing

she told soon enough she was in trouble tough
needed his help ’cause she her finances were rough
he told her not to worry as long as she kept her mouth shut
brought in a buddy who was willing to take the fall
before you know it they were dancing
dancing the the beat of the K Street beat
they were doing, doing the

D.C. shuffle
the D.C. shuffle
you know it by heart
once you get a taste of power
the D.C. shuffle is your thing
the D.C. shuffle will make you sing

[bridge]
now don’t get confuse
she’s doing just fine
got $1.6 million smiles
will the truth come out?
who knows

so the next time you see her
the next time she passes you by
know she’s doing great
’cause of her touch with fate
she got all she wanted and more
doing the

D.C. shuffle
the D.C. shuffle
you know it by heart
once you get a taste of power
the D.C. shuffle is your thing
the D.C. shuffle will make you sing

‘Coffee Boy’ — #Lyrics To A Woke Pop-R&B Fusion Song

I write lyrics because it’s relaxing. No one cares about any of these lyrics I write, but I enjoy telling stories in verse. The music for this would be something The Weeknd might use.

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

we’re all going down in flames
the administration is run by rubes
the pain is real for the nation on its knees
no matter who you are when you’re gone you’re just

a coffee boy
a coffee boy
believe you me
you too will be
a coffee boy
a coffee boy

when this is all over
and we’re all running for cover
we’ll think back and say
how we wish we’d gotten our way
if only the coffee boy had done it right
maybe we could still live in the light

a coffee boy
a coffee boy
believe you me
you too will be
a coffee boy
a coffee boy

[bridge]
nothing is as it seems
people rush towards me and plead
for some respite from the crushing fright
but we all know it’s gone until daylight

I like my coffee strong
I say with a sigh
this reasoning is weak
we may never get the truth we seek

coffee boy
coffee boy
coffee boy

‘Avoidance’ — #Lyrics To A R&B Pop-Rock Song

I fear my crush is actively avoiding me, so this is about someone talking about that scenario. As always, I just am writing these lyrics to vent and relax. It’s not like they’re any good or that anyone will ever produce them.

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

headed to the protest
hoping you’ll be there, be there
but your beau is supicious
won’t let you get within inches
so I walk around
looking for your smile
but it’s obvious to me
that you’re avoiding I believe

one day when you’re free
maybe you’ll be by my side
until then I’m alone
thinking of thee

you’re avoiding me
it’s obvious I’m afraid
you’re avoiding me
just hope you won’t flee
just hope you won’t flee

I hope to see you near
call you dear
maybe feel your presence near me
but I’m afraid it’s not to be
you’ll never be mine
’cause you love your man

you’re avoiding me
it’s obvious I’m afraid
you’re avoiding me
just hope you won’t flee
just hope you won’t flee

[bridge]
nothing will ever change
I’m afraid
I’m afraid
I’ll just think of you
with this sad refrain

you’re avoiding me
you’re avoiding me
you’re avoiding me

avoidance
avoidance
avoidance

‘Eyeache’ — Lyrics To A R&B Love Ballad

I can’t sleep — it’s too early to go to sleep anyway — so I’m relaxing by writing song lyrics to songs that will never, ever be performed. I just liked telling stories in verse, so you get this. This would be a dark, funky R&B song in my imagination.

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

you catch my eye every time we meet
I think of the ways I’d please you
given half a chance
but you just smile and walk away from me
leaving to my cross thoughts
of how everything is for not

your beauty makes my eyes ache, eyes ache
you break my heart
you break my heart
leaving me with eye ache, eye ache

my eyeache is real
wish you would give me the thrill
of allowing me to give you a twirl
but there’s little for me to say
maybe, baby, you’ll come my way

we should live a little I believe
let me have you believe
that things will get better with you in my arms
leave all those troubles behind

your beauty makes my eyes ache, eyes ache
you break my heart
you break my heart
leaving me with eye ache, eye ache

[bridge]
you’re just my type
one to give me delight
wish you would listen real close
let me hold you tight

but now it’s never going to happen
you’re leaving town for good
taking your man with you
at least, that’s what’s understood

your beauty makes my eyes ache, eyes ache
you break my heart
you break my heart
leaving me with eye ache, eye ache
