Ah, punctuation?

Sorry, that was prickish, but I can't help myself.

I'd begin with listening to music with English lyrics. I think it's as simple as that. It's easier to put out something if you're used to taking it in that way.

Once you've begun to hear English-based music, then listen to the actual word usage. There are some really good stickied threads in Techniques that give a primer on meter, cadence, syllabic stresses, consonance, assonance - basically, everything to know to make your lyrics 'sing'. From there it's just practice, practice, practice.
