The goal of our "Song Challenges" is to write songs/lyrics on demand within set parameters. We don't critique each other's songs in this thread (but you can say you like someone's song if you want to.) Please post your original works. If you have already written a song/lyric that fits within the parameters, please feel free to post it.

Time for our New Year Resolutions: You will need either a repeating hook in the verses or a chorus. The song must have the word resolution(s) in it somewhere. Good luck and Happy New Year to you all!

OK, here is one of mine from an earlier time. Will try to get the instrumental up on the mp3 forum for you to hear the music. No vocals.

Get Around To ©2001, 2007 J.M. Richardson Bullock (JeanB)

Refrain:
Get around to, really meant to do,
Gonna, gonna, gonna get it done, someday.
Get around to, really meant to do,
Gonna, gonna, gonna, gonna talk it away.
Itís talk. Just talk.

1.
You hardly say I love you to your honey anymore.
She is keepin' score;
one day she's gonna leave you.
You don't talk to your children like you say you're goin' to.
Soon they will be grown
and you'll be left alone. (Refrain)

2.
You sit upon the sofa while you're watchin' your T V;
on it you can see
some children goin' hungry.
You never send 'em money like you say you're goin' to.
You never send 'em any
not a nickel, not a penny. (Refrain)

3.
You make a list of resolutions every New Year's Day.
Nothin' that you say
ever really happens.
It's time to make those changes like you say you're goin' to.
You know it's up to you.
Quit talkin' and just do!

Bridge:
Gonna do, meant to do, I'll get it done is all you ever say.
When opportunity comes knockin',
it only hears you talkin'
and time keeps slipping away.
Do what you say!

Refrain

Hi Jean,

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you! Here's my offering. Each Chorus is slightly different. A little past my bedtime...but hey...it's Christmas! smile


ďResolutionsĒ ((Gender neutral/Uptempo))
©2007 Lynn Orloff

Another year is over,
But I ainít lookiní back,
You had my heart I will admit,
Iíll surely give you that.

Yeah baby you were usiní me,
You didnít treat me right,
Shame on you to break my heart,
Itís just not plum/real polite.

Lift
Iíve got some resolutions, infact I got a list,
I thought youíd like to hear emí, they go somethiní like thisÖ

I resolve to never fall for someone just like you,
I resolve youíll never hear me singiní out the blues,
Yes I resolve to uninvolve my heart from loviní yours,
Cause baby you canít use my heart like some revolviní door.


Donít think that Iím a losiní sleep,
Cause you ainít worth the zzzzís,
Iím gonnaí dot my iís this time,
Iíll even cross my tís.

Yeah I wonít make the same mistake,
I'll take my sweet ole' time,
The word is out, Iím fancy free,
The guys/gals have formed a line.

Lift
Iíve got me resolutions, so many thereís a list,
Iíll read em' to you one by one, they go somethiní like thisÖ

I resolve to tell the world that youíre not worth the time,
I resolve to not forget that sometimes love is blind,
Yeah I resolve to have some fun and when Iím done have more,
Cause baby you canít use my heart like some revolviní door.


Bridge
Don't even try to win me back,
You're sure to get the boot,
You'll find my will is stronger now,
Just call me resolute!

I resolve to listen to the wisdom of my friends,
Who told me that I shouldnít even look at you again,
Yeah itís goodbye, good riddinís, this time Iím really sure,
Cause baby you canít use my heart like some revolviní door.

Resolutions
© words by C. Stewart ( Dec. 26, 2007 )

Every year we go round and round
Like the old black vinyl forty five
Got some skips and scratches in our sound
The fingerprints of life, but we'll survive

CHORUS...
With resolutions
Maybe we'll follow through this time
With resolutions
Baby you make yours and I'll make mine

We're trying very hard to improve
Hoping that the future will be bright
Try to clean the dirt from our grooves
And remove all the blues from the night

CHORUS...
With resolutions
Maybe we'll follow through this time
With resolutions
Baby you make yours and I'll make mine

BRIDGE...
Our song of love is spinning, out of control
And all of the notes have went flat
But here's a way to fix all that

CHORUS...
With resolutions
Maybe we'll follow through this time
With resolutions
Baby you make yours and I'll make mine

Another year (Parody of Paul McCartneyís Another Day)

Stars from yesteryear keep passing on
Sun rises in the morning
Each Day begins another dawn
Itís just another year
Politician ramblings
People so confused
Deeply in despair and depression
Ah itís just another year

Cars break down and catch on fire
Everything seems to
Be coming down to the wire

Itís just another year du du du du du
Itís just another year du du du du du
Itís just another year

So bad so bad
Resloutions turn out so bad
Every year we decide once again
To try to do things with a different spin

Ah, we try, try very hard
Not to do what we shouldnít
But we do the next day
So bad
Resolutions turn out so bad

Stars from yesteryear keep passing on
Sun rises in the morning
Each Day begins another dawn
Itís just another year
Politician ramblings
People so confused
Deeply in despair and depression
Ah itís just another year

Itís just another year du du du du du
Itís just another year du du du du du
Itís just another year

it's funny
I've had a new years resolution song idea for several years
last year I pitched it to a cowriter and she liked it and wanted to work on it
it wasn't till the last few days that I completed the first draft of the lyric (that I was happy with) then asked her again if she was interested

I'll post it when I've got a demo or a video

As The Midnight Bell Starts To Chime
We All Sing A Chorus of Auld Lang Syne
Then Raise a Glass and Maybe Shed A Tear
As We Bid Farewell To Another Passing Year.

Then My Resolution Oh Everyone Shall Know
Because I Shall Broadcast It In Full Stereo
My Resolution Is ..No More Resolutions
So I Shall Keep Just One And Let The Other Go.

Happy New Year To All @ J.P.F.

(sorry just just can't help it smile with apologies to the Boys)

Resolution

You say you want a resolution
Well, you know
We all want to change our weight
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change our shape
But when you talk about delusion
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
all right, all right


....

On a serious note, how often do you have these challenges? I'm new around here.

Well here I am and I'll guess i'll just jump right in.

Here's a Christmas lyric.

Christmas Past

Maybe the snow was a little whiter
Maybe the tree a little more green
Maybe the stars shown a little brighter
I don't know - Christmas Past wasnít just a dream

There was a time that I remember
When I could hardly sleep at night
Listening for hoof prints on the roof top
I'd fall asleep with sleigh bells in my mind

Was it that long ago I hung those stockings with care
In hopes that Santa Claus would soon be there
How can I return to a place I knew back when
A Christmas Past I knew when I was ten

Santa Claus if you're still there I've got a wish for you
I hope you can bring it to me
If you can spare the room
I need you to take me back to a place where reindeer fly
And the stars shine as bright as the
Magic in the children's eyes

Was it that long ago I hung those stockings with care
In hopes that Santa Claus would soon be there
How can I return to a place I knew back when
A Christmas Past I knew when I was ten

It would help if I actually read the challenge.

Here's my shot..... Happy new year.

My Resolution

Itís that time of year again
When we fine whoís the real friend
The one who stands beside us
When we make this New Yearís promise

A solution to my problems
Is quite simply you see
All I needís a resolution
To be all I can be

So I ask you my friend
To stick with me till the end
Till the end of the week at least
Iíll lose the weight then we can feast

A resolution is a simple solution
Nothing to do but promise
Nothing to do but say
I promise to make a resolution some day.

I promise to be truthful
I promise to be true
I promise my resolution
Will last at least till this song is through

( hmmm.. Is this lyric to short? )
