gnomad Improving Lyrics? (100* d) RE: Improving Lyrics? 09 Sep 13


Yes, maybe, but most likely? Future performances/publications give ample opportunity to writers wishing to revise their works.

Editing goes on regularly (style and punctuation being particular targets) but usually with the author's consent and/or cooperation, and most editors are appointed by either a publisher or the author.

As I said, you have the right to make changes, but that right doesn't mean that just any change you make will be for the better.

Presumably that is why you asked "What do we think?" Sorry but at least some here feel you haven't improved the song. You are entitled to believe we are idiots (if you do, the rash of !!!!!!!!!!!!!!s suggests this) but that doesn't make you right.
