The Lyrics

Mixed Metaphor

Writing songs pits you against a strong foe.
Yes writing songs pits you against a strong foe.
You want to heed rules, but sometimes you need ta
Use a mixed metaphor.

How you gonna get those two lines to rhyme?
Yes, how you gonna get those two lines to rhyme?
You want to heed rules, but sometimes you need ta
Use a mixed metaphor.
[Repeat]

You're like Joyce Kilmer, writing text about a nursing, praying tree.
Yes, you're like Joyce Kilmer, writing text about a nursing, praying tree.
You want to heed rules, but sometimes you need ta
Use a mixed metaphor.

Yes, writing songs pits you against a strong foe.
Yes writing songs pits you against a strong foe.
You want to heed rules, but sometimes you need ta
Use a mixed metaphor.

DKTOS, but I agree with the sentiment...once you've mixed a metaphor or two, it frees you up. Well done 555

DKTOS also...but agree also...my brother, David creating a saying about mixed metaphors using about three of them all thrown together to explain why one shouldn't use mixed metaphors. It was very clever, but unfortunately I can't remember how it goes now. I've been sitting here about 5 minutes kicking it around and nada...zippo...I do know that all three he used were really oft-spoken old chestnuts that I must have heard 1,000 times each. Wait..."Mixed metaphors are a pain in the neck and.....(???)"...Well, maybe something like that. I think it's funnier if you actually spit it out instead of bumbling around like I am now. oh, well...
