to write make up lyrics on the spot?

when i write songs i generally just make music then add lyrics after, often i make up the lyrics as i record the vocals.

Should i spend more time on lyrics or is this totally acceptable?


i'll u an example of my lyrics, from my latest song, about half of this song was mae up on the spot, only the first and last verse were planned.

i don't give a f*ck about you
why would i?
he said
as he lay her down
as he lay her down
in the dirt
in the dirt

when you say my name
when you burn teh flame
it's just not the same
it's just not the same

he met a girl
near the old oak tree
they talked for nealry a week
then his eyes turned red
it was all he could see
all he could see
all he could see
all he could see

red

red

red walls
red floors
red sheets
red door

why oh why?
why oh why?

but he loved her

you lay her down
in the cold wet dirt
can't escape
can't understand
what's inside
what's inside
asking why
why?

why lord why?
who am i?
why lord why?
who am i? who am i?
who am i?

i just can't live whithout you
why would i?
he said
to his latest friend


are these ok or should i spend more time planning lyrics for my next song

In my oppinion i think you need to spend more time on them, but that's just my oppinion, someone else might think those are the greatest lyrics they have ever read. What sort of genre are you writing for ?
Peace

If it has a good body, a nice long neck and 6 strings i'd hit it like Ron Jeremy on viagra.
