3 Song Alliteration Examples

Song Alliteration Examples, #1

Helplessly Hoping
by Stephen Stills, Gold Hill

Helplessly hoping
Her harlequin hovers nearby
Awaiting a word
Gasping at glimpses
Of gentle true spirit
He runs, wishing he could fly
Only to trip at the sound of good-bye

Wordlessly watching
He waits by the window
And wonders
At the empty place inside
Heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams
He worries
Did he hear a good-bye? Or even hello?

They are one person
They are two alone
They are three together
They are for each other

Stand by the stairway
You’ll see something
Certain to tell you confusion has its cost
Love isn’t lying
It’s loose in a lady who lingers
Saying she is lost
And choking on hello

They are one person
They are two alone
They are three together
They are for each other

Song Alliteration Examples, #2

“Alphabet Aerobics”
by Blackalicious

Artificial amateurs, aren’t at all amazing
Analytically, I assault, animate things
Broken barriers bounded by the bomb beat
Buildings are broken, basically I’m bombarding
Casually create catastrophes, casualties
Cancelling cats got their canopies collapsing
Detonate a dime of dank daily doin dough
Demonstrations, Don Dada on the down low
Eatin other editors with each and every energetic
Epileptic episode, elevated etiquette
Furious fat fabulous fantastic
Flurries of funk felt feeding the fanatics
Gift got great global goods gone glorious
Gettin godly in his game with the goriest
Hit em high, hella height, historical
Hey holocaust hints hear ’em holler at your homeboy
Imitators idolize, I intimidate
In a instant, I’ll rise in a irate state
Juiced on my jams like jheri curls jockin joints
Justly, it’s just me, writin my journals
Kindly I’m kindling all kinds of ink on
Karate kick type brits in my kingdom
Let me live a long life, lyrically lessons is
Learned lame louses just lose to my livery
My mind makes marvelous moves, masses
Marvel and move, many mock what I’ve mastered
Niggas nap knowin I’m nice naturally
Knack, never lack, make noise nationally
Operation, opposition, off, not optional
Out of sight, out of mind, wide beaming opticals
Perfected poem, powerful punchlines
Pummelling petty powder puffs in my prime
Quite quaint quotes keep quiet it’s Quannum
Quarrelers ain’t got a quarter of what we got uh
Really raw raps, risin up rapidly
Riding the rushing radioactivity
Super scientifical sound search sought
Silencing super fire saps that are soft
Tales ten times talented, too tough
Take that, challengers, get a tune up
Universal, unique untouched
Unadulterated, the raw uncut
Verb vice lord victorious valid
Violate vibes that are vain make em vanished
? well would a wise wordsmith just
Weaving up words weeded up, I’m a workshift
Xerox, my X-ray-diation holes extra large
X-height letters, and xylophone tones
Yellow back, yak mouth, young ones yaws
Yesterday’s lawn yards sell our (yawn?)
Zig zag zombies, zoomin to the zenith
Zero in zen thoughts, overzealous rhyme ZEA-LOTS!….

(good….can you say it faster?)

Song Alliteration Examples, #3

Be A Better Boy
by Mick Terry

BETTER BE A BETTER BOY before you bother
betting that you’ll bring her back home again.
Try to treat her like you treat a tender lady.
Tell her truthfully that you’ll make amends.
She’ll be upset for a while.
But you can win with the smile.

Couldn’t keep her quite contented, could you? ‘Cause you
caused her so much misery that she ached.
Go and get her gifts of goodies, gold and flowers.
Guess you’ve got to give it all that it takes.
You’ve got to give one more try.
See if she’ll come to your side.

    Alliteration is a really nifty literary device for poems. It should be used in moderation in “regular” writing, such as headlines and essays. But it is really fun to share alliterative poems and tongue-twisters with the grandchildren.
