My first semesterly assessment is due in this Monday and i was stupid enough to forget about it until now.

The requirements are that we write a full length kids song using a major scale with included lyrics and a complete portfolio of how we made the piece. We also have to record the piece.

Now i have figured out how the song will go and i am in process of writing out how it will go. So far i have figured out i want it in G major and a key change at the end to A major. Structure of the song will be Intro, A, B, A, B, C(Key change), D, Outro.

My major problem will be with the lyrics. I am dreadful at writing any lyrics at all. If i ad remembered a week or so earlier i could have grunted through it and made some half decent lyrics but this close its a no hoper. This is where you guys come in . Im not asking for anyone to completely write out lyrics for me (Although i wouldn't mind it). I'm just after some really good ideas and general words i can use.

Im thinking the title will be along the liens of "Sharing is caring". I cant get it started off at all

Please help if you can.
For those who care.

good luck,
I suck at lyrics as well.
Just write something similar to Mars Volta's stuff.
And make sure no one understand you.

Just uploaded the full finished song. I'm still completely blank on lyrics :S

I changed the structure of the song around a tad as well.

Listen to the band They Might Be Giants. Write something like it, but you can choose not to include to wonderful sociopolitical metaphors, and you're done .

Ha I've just listened to the Kids Song, funny stuff.

Kids, like alot of repetetion, and a story. I'm thinking you could put a moral in there, because kid's also love aesop's fables.

If it was me I would start of with:

'Well.................... Jimmy was a boy with alot of sweets,
He would eat and eat and eat and eat,
Bla bla bla,'

It could be a story about Jimmy who would share his sweets, and then something bad happened to him, and then Danny is a boy who shared and he had loads of freinds.

Lol, well, its an idea...

Honestly, kids lyrics are awesome to write, just put a TMBG cd on and release the randomness.


I miss being in a band that made that kind of stuff.
