‘Thighland’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Rock Song


I don’t know anything about music, but I do enjoy writing. So, here you go. Maybe someone might see it as a stepping off point. I would like credit for it, though.

Thighland

land of a thousand smiles
she might tap you on the shoulder
telling you to go
lies come and roll
but there’s no place like

thighland
always warm
always welcoming to your love
even if it’s just a tug
thighland
always warm
always welcoming to your love
even if it’s just a tug

we’re all happy in this land
never have to worry about the rain
it’s never in vain
lately it’s been dull but it’s just a lul
wait until the night and it’ll change
here in

thighland
always warm
always welcoming to your love
even if it’s just a tug
thighland
always warm
always welcoming to your love
even if it’s just a tug

(bridge)
close the gate
if you’re too late
rub your muff if you get enough
of your time in the land of honey
it’s all too sweet in
thighland
thighland
thighland

thighland
always warm
always welcoming to your love
even if it’s just a tug
thighland
always warm
always welcoming to your love
even if it’s just a tug

‘The Trumpty Dance’ An Anti-Trump Old School #Rap

This is embarrassingly bad, but it gives you some sense of what I wanted to do with it.


The Trumpty Dance
lyrics by Shelt Garner

(With apologies to The Digital Underground)

lie to me baby
lie to me baby
lie to me baby

you thought I was a fooling you
but here I am ruling you
so let me introduce myself
my name is Trump
sure I’m a litte dumpty
but I’m still getting grabbing pussy
and I’ve got a new dance
if you don’t do it you’re a wussy

the Trumpty Dance is gas
the Trumpty Dance is at first glance
just a bunch of crap

I got a foreign wife
while I try with all my might
to tell you immigrants are a blight
but you’ll buy my crap
you think it smells so nice
as long as I get my wall
it’s my call

Nazis do the Trumpty-Trump!
Rich people do the Trumpty-Trump!
Gun-nuts do the Trumpty-Trump!

‘Read My Mind’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Song

Just screwing around. Feeling inspired. I know nothing about music, but sometimes it’s fun to blow off some steam by writing lyrics.


Read My Mind
lyrics by Shelton Garner
@sheltgarner
please give credit if you produce or perform

I look at you with a thrill
wondering what is your drill
all I can assume what is done is done
free your mind since you’ve

read my mind
guessed my thoughts
read my mind
read my mind
guess my thoughts
you read my mind

I’m afraid it’s time to go
you’re so worried about the flow
my thoughts are too much I’m afraid
’cause you’re still not going to get laid

read my mind
guessed my thoughts
read my mind
read my mind
guess my thoughts
you read my mind

(bridge)
read my lips
I’m done with your shit
no more to think
action is it

read my mind
guessed my thoughts
read my mind
read my mind
guess my thoughts
you read my mind

‘The State Of The Union’ #Lyrics To A #Pandemic #PopRock #Protest Song

Shelton Bumgarner

With this one, I cribbed the structure from Neil Young’s “Southern Man.” Anyway, this would be a really angry rock song like that song. Or something. It makes me feel better to vent in verse sometimes.

The State Of The Union
lyrics by Shelt Garner
@sheltgarner

(hook)
we all bleed
the same colored blood
we all bleed
the same colored blood
we all bleed
the same colored blood

Verse
we are no longer red nor blue
we are only
patriots, citizens and humans

Chorus
get away from me with your hate
there’s no time for that
at this late date
we’ve all fallen short
that is the glory that is God
that is God
that is God

(hook)
we all bleed
the same colored blood
we all bleed
the same colored blood
we all bleed
the same colored blood

Chorus
get away from me with your hate
there’s not time for that
at this late date
we’ve all fallen short
that is the glory that is God
that is God
that is God

‘All Will Be Remembered’ #Lyrics To A #Pop #Ballad #BillieEilish #Pandemic

Shelton Bumgarner
Source: The Internet, duh.

I occasionally get in moods where I need to express myself in verse. I know nothing about music, but I am a reasonably good writer. So, using what little I know about the structure of pop lyrics, here’s a rough sketch of a pandemic-themed pop-song. It’s barely a rough draft. But it makes me feel better to write it. I see this as a Billie Eilish-type jam.

All Will Be Remembered
lyrics by Shelt Garner
@sheltgarner
please give credit if you produce or perform

we saw the world
in shades of blue and red
shout at each other in our minds

as the storm clouds began to rise
in the east but we gave it no mind
we blamed each other as it rushed our way
not caring we were all in its way

heroes would be made
cowards would be shamed
all would be remembered
all would be remembered
remembered, remembered, remembered
for what they did
in the vortex

a crack of thunder and it began
people began to flee from this world
head into the next
the headwinds of fate
crashed against our faces
we realized to secure in place
in the vortex

heroes are made
cowards are shamed
all are remembered
all are remembered
remembered, remembered, remembered
for what they did
in the vortex
in the vortex
in the vortex

(Bridge)
all was calm
for so long
we felt we had it all
but now we
see it was all gall
in the vortex

heroes were made
cowards were shamed
all were remembered
all were remembered
remembered, remembered, remembered
for what they did
in the vortex
in the vortex
in the vortex
in the vortex
in the vortex
in the vortex

‘Dystopia in the US’ — #Lyrics To A #Punk Song

Dystopia in the US
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

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
Please give credit if you produce or perform

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 To A #Punk Song.

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

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

Jack Black
Jack Black
Jack Black
Jack Black

‘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
