In honor of National Poetry Month, here are a few resources to help with the related art of songwriting.  Most of these books (the "MT" books) are available in the Music Collection.  The "PE" books are on the Third Floor of Bracken Library.

In order to write a good song
The words should go where they belong
The best songs do rhyme
But not all the time
Sometimes the lyricist just can't figure out the last line
Having trouble coming up with rhymes?  We can help with that too!
