well i usually write a song music wise first and then put lyrics but to each their own really, try my way and then singing along without thinking will help you get an idea of how the singing is going to sound then throw words in to go with whatever your song is about, thats how i do it anyway, goodluck

you should call one of the songs, "Respecting Old People" just to mix things up.

i normally write a bunch of little verses and a bunsh of chord progressions and put them in 2 seperate folders... then when i think i have enough i go through the chords folder and pick out progressions i really like, then i go through my lyrics folder and see if there is anything that fits or almost fits. Then I take/add bits and pieces etc.

just make sure when u write lyrics don't go back and edit it until you have found chords, you might be losing something cool

I write the music 1st then I sort of improvise hum the melody and words usually just fit into that. In other words, pretty much what the other people have said so far.
