Well the thread title says it all really.

I'm in a ska band of which I play the trumpet, we have a few gigs coming up and we only have covers at the moment, I'd like us to play our own number (or two) but it'll come down to lyrics. Don't ask why I'm the who'll be writing them but I need some about something, anyone got any tips?

I know how to write chord sequences and stuff

I'd preferably like it to be about something spontanious, if that makes any sense, I just need some tips.

Thanks in advance.

Since ska origanated in jamica look to them for some inspirational lyrics their culture is about uplifting people and over coming oppression.
