"I can do anything!"


I've got my shades on
Twirling a pawn in the air
You better bet that the game's on
Play it only if you dare

White white knight has advanced
No, you don't stand a chance
My bishop's moved a space
There's no way you can escape

Chorus:
Black can run
White will capture them
Try to protect the king
I'll get your men
I'm calling your bluff
in this contest
Chess

Everything is clear cut
It's all right here in black and white
The battlefield of squares we're on
will have a war tonight

We're playing by set rules
Who will win, who will lose
is left up to cleverness
Can you figure out what I'm planning next?

Chorus:
Black can run
White will capture them
Try to protect the king
I'll get your men
This is my revenge
I'm calling your bluff
in this contest
Chess

Boldness won't fool me
I can see your sweaty hands
And you know you can't destroy me
You realized where I stand

My queen is moving in
I'll hide my sly grin
I've shot your ego down
You'll have to surrender now

Chorus:
Black can run
White will capture them
Try to protect the king
I'll get your men
This is my revenge
I'm calling your bluff
in this contest
Chess

Middle:
I've got you where I want you
Nothing you can do
I've got you where I want you
Nothing you can do
I've got you where I want you
Ha, there's nothing you can do
Your king's screaming loud
It's a whirlwind now
Try to run and hide but it's too late
Don't look now boy but
"Checkmate"

I won in the end
Got my revenge
I've called your bluff
Knocked down your defense
Chess

It's hard to match music to your lyrics, especially on this site. I think if you revised this a bit it would make a better poem than it would a song. Still good though!

I like the whole song, except for the line "We're playing by set rules". It just doesn't really fit with the rest it seems like. Maybe because the rest of the song seems to be telling a story, but that line is just saying something that people expect in chess. Something that happens in every game.

 

Also, do you have music for these lyrics? Music is really important, just as important as the words. A song can have horrible lyrics but still be great if it has good music, but not vice versa.

You have a gift for writing. Keep working, shaping, dreaming, working. You have the ability to go far.
