If I was a sculptor, but then again, no...

I love the song, Elton, but don't you think you could have written the lyrics before you got to the recording studio? (Perhaps he meant something like 'I'm not a sculptor, but I wish I was', but this is the best way he could arrange 'em to fit the structure of the song?)

Repetitive Song Lyric -> Latest Entries

Toni Braxton's, "Breathe Again"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
And I can't stop thinking about,
About the way things used to be,
And I can't stop thinking about,
About the love that you made to me.
And I can't get you out of my head;
How in the world will I begin
To let you walk right out of my life
And throw my heart away?
And I can't stop caring about,
About the apple of my eye,
And I can't stop doing without,
Without the center of my life.
Why They're Repetitive:
The constant "And I can't" gets old after a while.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Traditional's, "Frosty The Snowman"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Frosty the Snowman was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal

Frosty the Snowman is a fairy tale they say
He was made of snow but the children know
How he came to life one day

Later:
Frosty the Snowman was alive as he could be
And the children say he could laugh and play
Just the same as you and me
Why They're Misrhymed:
"Pipe" and "nose" don't rhyme with each other. However, the words "snow" and "know," "say" and "play," etc. rhyme.

Lyrics Pronunciation -> Latest Entries

Taylor Swift's, "Blank Space"
The Lyrics:
Got a long list of ex-lovers
Why:
I couldn’t make sense of this line until I read the lyrics. That’s because of the peculiar way she’s stressing words. Instead of stressing the prefix “ex-” of “ex-lovers”, she’s stressing the preposition “of”, which wouldn’t usually be stressed.

Paul Revere & The Raiders', "Steppin' Out "
The Lyrics:
Well, I had to leave town because of Uncle Sam's deal, ha ha ha yeah
Well, I guess my good lovin' done lost its appeal
Because when I come back I heard the bad bad news
They say our big romance has been gettin' abused
Now tell me true, don't lie to me
Have you been step, step, step, step, step, step, steppin' out on me?
I've got ways of findin' out if you've been steppin' out on me
It'll do me good and I'll give you a piece of my mind
Why:
An Armed Forces soldier who is either on leave or has finished his enlistment returns home to discover his girlfriend has reportedly been seeing another man behind his back. In the song, he is confronting her and informing her that he has no qualms about ending the relationship if the story is true.
