Advice 1: How to change lyrics

The ability to alter the original song is very useful if you go to a wedding or anniversary, take part in the skit or play KVN, want to make an original gift to friends or relatives.
How to change lyrics
You will need
  • The original recording of the song, original lyrics, soundtrack-minus (without words), Notepad.
Instruction
1
Several times listen to the selected song. Make it easy for you to independently reproduce its melody.
2
Decide on the style of parody. If you want to make a humorous parody of an existing song and try to learn the lyrics by heart, or at least to remember 70% -80% text, it will be very useful in the future. If you are planning to write new words to this melody - enough to jump around in the text to imagine the possible size and rhythm of verse.
3
Write out the main topics that should be addressed in your song. If this is a parody of the original, decide what you would like to make a joke. If you completely rework the text and theme of the song - decide what it will involve. It is advisable to choose a theme for each verse.
4
Start sketching out new lyrics, record all come to mind phrase. If it came to mind a few good lines, and write the following fails, try to at least sketch out possible rhymes to already invented.
5
Do all your notes in one notebook (the original printed text can be pasted to the first sheet). Carry a Notepad with me and write there come to mind lines. Try as often as possible to listen to the audio recording of the song until the melody starts to spin in your head.
6
Collect all the pieces together. Start singing the song, singing "La La La" in place of those strings that are still in the making. This will likely help to fill in the gaps with a new text.
7
Try to perform the song in different keys. Select the one that you will be comfortable to sing it on the show. To make sure that the song sounds good, sing it to your friends or record your voice and then listen to the recording.
Note
Verbal rhymes (two words that rhyme together) less advantageous than any other. Try to rhyme verbs with other parts of speech.

If you want to make your song look professional - strictly observe the size of the verse.
Useful advice
Try to somehow beat the original meaning of the song. It will benefit any alteration. Sometimes the original chorus is so well suited in the sense that you can put it without changes, by rewriting only the verses.

Advice 2 : How to convert songs to myself

At the recital, or corporate party you have to show off your talents? The simplest thing you can do in this case - to sing the song, but altering it for themselves. Just replacing some words, you will give a song an entirely different meaning, more appropriate to the occasion, and all gathered myself will note that you are prepared for the task heartily.
How to convert songs to myself
Instruction
1
For alteration it is best to choose a famous work of art – so a new version will sound more bright and comical and, besides, you'll be able to sing along. If you don't want to redo the whole song, select the smash-hit, the content is the closest to the theme of your celebration. For example, if a holiday on which you will play new year, give preference to the song, which is sung about the New year.
2
As a rule, the text of a musical work written in the first person. Altering the male song to the female, remember that you are surely going to disrupt the rhyme, and this song in your performance will sound not as good as it could. Thus, if you are a "girl", choose a song where she sings (then the phrase "he loves me" "he kissed me", etc. will sound appropriate, and will not cause a smirk), and if you - "the boy" and sing it on his face.
3
If "your" song is already invented and even written by someone, just replace the key names from the author's text for the names of those present at the celebration of people (of course that was in a certain sense).
4
If overall finished piece of music suits you, but there are a number of nuances that you need to change, try to new words did not spoil the rhyme. Count the syllables, if necessary, tapping rhyme with a pencil on a hard surface or your own hand on the leg.
5
At the same time, nothing bad will that you will go beyond the source text. For example, if you transform a banal birthday song Happy Birthday to You, and the name of the birthday boy is quite long (or your team decided to address each other by name and patronymic), don't be sad if "cut" is nothing. As often happens, but, alas, nothing helped.
6
Remember that your song will be especially interesting for the audience if they hear mention of them. Think in advance what you could tell about someone, but at the same time not overdo it, and you heroes your song can hold the artist to the offense.
