Rhyme after Rhyme

TTTO “Time after Time”, Cyndie Lauper

Singing on this stage I hear the fiddle
And realize
Caught up in chords and melody
Not that wise
Blackout — mind blank
Lyrics were left behind
They had some great ones —
Rhyme after–

Sometimes I think of words
In verses too far ahead
You’re shouting at me, “wrong verse”
I think you’ve said
Then you say — you’ve left
The sheet behind
The music makes me blind

[Chorus]
If you’ve lost all the words — then just make them up
Rhyme after rhyme
If Frank Hayes has now hit you — rewrite your lyrics
Rhyme after rhyme

After my song is done, the music will
Fade away
Some words were wrong, you’re wondering
If it’s OK
Dumb lines stolen from songs I heard
The drum beats had me scared

[Chorus]

Then you say — you’ve left
The sheet behind
The music makes me blind

[Chorus]

…Rhyme after rhyme
Rhyme after rhyme
Rhyme after rhyme
Rhyme after rhyme
