Hollywood Premier [Young Writers Conference Part 2]


subscribe-icon2

These 4th and 5th graders decided to write a pop song. First I ran down my songwriting manifesto with them. We then had a stream-of-consciousness word storm. Then we wrote the lyrics (see below). Finally, we recorded three takes of our song. It takes some of the best Pop Stars' ghost writers days and weeks to write a hit. For these kids, an hour was sufficient…because they are awesome!


Hollywood Premier

We got this. What?
We're stayin' up all night
'Cause we're nerds, but we're awesome! Yeah!
And I was like…
Don't be a party pooper
Get in my Mini Cooper -- limousine

Rolling down the neighborhood
Sing that hook and make it good

Late night let's get crazy
With Carlos and the car goes
To my Hollywood Premier so come on shake your rear
See the A-list stars walkin' down the red carpet

Sittin' round the flat playin' Donkey Kong
Make him climb the tower
Forgot to take a shower
Then the phone went ring ring
What up Jay-Z!

Rolling down the neighborhood
Sing that hook and make it good

Late night let's get crazy
With Carlos and the car goes
To my Hollywood Premier so come on shake your rear
See the A-list stars walkin' down the red carpet

Suddenly it was over
Feel like I lost my 4-leaf clover
My phone stopped ringing
My hips stopped swinging
But I'm still...

Rolling down the neighborhood
Sing that hook and make it good

Late night let's get crazy
With Carlos and the car goes
To my Hollywood Premier so come on shake your rear
See the A-list stars walkin' down the red carpet

Late night let's get crazy
With Carlos and the car goes
To my Hollywood Premier so come on shake your rear
See the A-list stars walkin' down the red carpet
