Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 9/24/17

This week, the lyric Simply Marquessa chose was: “Don’t pick up the phone. You know that he’s only calling because he’s drunk and alone.” However,  once again, the theme I chose doesn’t have much to do with that one lyric.  The name of the song it comes from is “New Rules” by Dua Lipa. I listened to it for the first time yesterday and really enjoyed the song. More importantly, though, it supplied the theme for this week.

I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of schizophrenic when it comes to rules.  If there is a guideline to follow, I’m pretty much a stickler for it unless you give me a good reason to not follow it.  So, on one hand, I like rules, but on the other hand, I do believe they aren’t always for the best.  I guess what I’m saying is that if there is a rule, follow it, but don’t be afraid to change the rules if they no longer serve the purpose they were intended for. Clear as mud? I thought so.

Anyway, as you may have guessed, our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “rules”.  

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

If you would like to suggest a theme, I am open to suggestions.   Please either pop it in the comments or send me an email at helenvahdati@yahoo.com.

Here are the “rules”:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song
  • Ping back to this post or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process

  6. I was playing Scategories with my family last night and mentioned the theme for this week, and my daughter blurted out, “Teenagers,” I knew instantly what she meant, so without further ado here is My Chemical Romance’s “Teenagers.”
    Written by Bob Bryar / Frank Iero / Gerard Way / Michael Way / Ray Toro

    They’re gonna clean up your looks
    With all the lies in the books
    To make a citizen out of you
    Because they sleep with a gun
    And keep an eye on you, son
    So they can watch all the things you do
    Because the drugs never work
    They’re gonna give you a smirk
    ‘Cause they got methods of keepin’ you clean
    They gonna rip up your heads
    Your aspirations to shreds
    Another cog in the murder machine
    They said all
    Teenagers scare
    The living shit out of me
    They could care less
    As long as someone’ll bleed
    So darken your clothes
    Or strike a violent pose
    Maybe they’ll leave you alone
    But not me
    The boys and girls in the clique
    The awful names that they stick
    You’re never gonna fit in much, kid
    But if you’re troubled and hurt
    What you got under your shirt
    Will make them pay for the things that they did
    They said all
    Teenagers scare
    The living shit out of me
    They could care less
    As long as someone’ll bleed
    So darken your clothes
    Or strike a violent pose
    Maybe they’ll leave you alone
    But not me
    Oh yeah
    They said all
    Teenagers scare
    The living shit out of me
    They could care less
    As long as someone’ll bleed
    So darken your clothes
    Or strike a violent pose
    Maybe they’ll leave you alone
    But not me
    All together now
    Teenagers scare
    The living shit out of me
    They could care less
    As long as someone’ll bleed
    So darken your clothes
    Or strike a violent pose
    Maybe they’ll leave you alone
    But not me
    Teenagers scare
    The living shit out of me
    They could care less
    As long as someone’ll bleed
    So darken your clothes
    Or strike a violent pose
    Maybe they’ll leave you alone
    But not me
