Thread Name: Improving Lyrics?
Subject: RE: Improving Lyrics?
Tunesmith. In the opening post you asked What do we think?

Well, some people think lyrics can be 'improved', some think they are fine as they are, some think the authors views should be solicited and some think you should not tamper with the lyrics. Now, surely that has answered your question so why argue about the answers?

You think they can be improved, fine. Improve them to your own satisfaction. But why do you want everyone to agree with you? It is coming across like you are not sure if it is an improvement and need some sort of reassurance. Either do it or don't but if you do, don't complain when people say they preferred the original.

Cheers
