FDP Forum / Tin Pan Alley - Songwriting / She Was Made To Be Played

Went over to www.songfight.org and scanned through all the songs for the current songfight and then I saw the the next song was "Made to be played".

I am contrasting the light, happy chorus (major) with a darker, foreboding (and building) minor verse that seem to be about a totally different (and cryptic) subject.

Since I repeat the chorus a whopping 4 times, I have re-written the last two lines of the middle chorus to have more variety. I think the lines are pretty good -- but I have doubts that they improve the song any. I like to add some harmonies and clean up some diction in the next version

She was made to be played
it never felt like work
and when the games were over
we got our just dessert
oh yea, oh yea .....

(verse)
Now I know what it feels like
got my hands upon the wheel
going down to peachtree
gonna make some kind of deal

(verse)
and when I get there
people gonna stop and stare
cause when you've got a job to do
you gotta see it through

(chorus)
she was made to be played
it never felt like work
and when the games were over
we got our just dessert
oh yea, oh yea .....

(Instrumental verses)

(bridge)
I walking a fine line
I'm doing my thing
and now it's time
to do it all over again

(chorus)
she was made to be played
it never felt like work
and when the games were over
we got our just dessert
oh yea, oh yea .....

Hey, that was mean-spirited. I am crushed and I think I will have to give up songwriting!
