The Axis of Awesome - How to Write a Love Song

The Axis of Awesome – How to Write a Love Song

These are the complete lyrics:

Steel string guitar
Synthetic percussion

Baby Girl
I wanna show you how much I really love you
(How much I really love you)
Baby Girl
That’s what I call you to show you
that my love for you is true
Baby Girl
My love is so great that I wrote you this song
And to show you how much I really care
It sounds like every other one

The beat kicks in and then I sing a bit more rhythmically
To make it sensual I sing it in a minor key
I move my hands like I’m pushing someone in front of me
(Get out of my way)
Now that’s the first verse and now I’m gonna take it to the bridge

I say something ’bout how I don’t wanna break up
Then I turn around and rhyme it with “Make-up”
I tell you that we should be together
(How long?)
(That long?!)
And ever
(So long!)
Girl, you’re always in my heart
(in my heart)
And I never wanna be apart
(never be apart)
Honey, you’ll always be mine
(Baby be mine)
Baby Girl, it’s chorus time!

This is how you write a love song
Yeah, this is how you write a clichéd love song
This is how you write a love song
Yeah, a shitty nineties R&B love song

This is my back-up and he sings quite breathily
He takes the words I say and sings them after me
(sings them after me)
He emphasizes words and sings emphatically
(I sing emphatically)
Now listen to more singing acapella harmony

Now I’m back at the bridge
I haven’t written anything for this
So I’m goooooonna streeeeetch ooooout theeeee woooooords
Repeating everything I say
Till I get
(Till I get)
Till I get
(Till I get)
Till I get
(Till I get)
Yeah till I get back to the chorus

This is how you write a love song
Yeah a shitty shitty shitty shitty love song
And to show you I care
I throw my hands in the air
Now cut the music while I sing a long noooooooooooote

Hey girl
I’ve been standing at the back not doing much for this song
But that’s because my talents are quite limited
But that don’t mean that I love you any less
In fact, it means the opposite
(I’m just showing off my voice)

Just that it’s so hard for me to find the words to really express the way that I feel about you girl
Especially when I have to worry ’bout fitting those words to music
And there’s some kind of rhyme structure involved
(Meaningless whisper)

I know it’s lazy songwriting
But I don’t care
’cause I sleep on a big pile of money at night

Girl, you might think its weird, girl, that there’s three guys singing about just one girl, girl
But let me tell you something, girl, it’s not weird at all
In fact, girl, it’s an industry standard
And it happens all the time
(Happens all the time)
Well girl, I better wrap this up about now
’cause I’m about to get cut off by
Whoaho whoaho whoaho whoaahoooow

Baby I wrote you a love song
It wasn’t hard and it really didn’t take long
A totally generic love song
Yeah really, this could be about anyone
(But it’s for you)
Yeah, this is your love song
No specific girl
To let you know we take it seriously
Then now watch as we change the key

When you change the key in a love song
It means you sing it passionately
But we still haven’t reached the end
No, because we’re gonna change the key again

Look at me, I’m singin’ a love song
Yeah anyone can sing a shitty love song
Our love is so unique
That I copied every other shitty love song
