Words in Song

Words” as a subject in song


The lyrics and the audio for these are not held here for copyright reasons. I have installed links to other sites. If you discover that any of these links are broken, please contact me. (If you start from my home page, you quickly find how to do that.) What I like doing with these is to open the lyrics and the sound in different tabs, and then listen to the song whilst I have the words up in front of me

Comment.
Many readers will agree with me that many of the new word usages complained about in this song represent the meeting of a real need. Many of the new uses have come into our language without any problems or downside.

Comment.
Louden has written this song of complaint to complain about only one word. The word does not appear in the song. You have to figure it out! (Hint: the word is NOT “Cobwebs”).
