The Songs Lyrics History
Song lyrics are known since the very beginning of song writing in ancient times. Mayan people have written lyrics on stones, for songs dedicated to gods and performed on rituals. Then in ancient Egypt lyrics have been found on papyrus sheets which represented songs that ancient pharaohs wanted to listen, and also song lyrics dedicated to Amon Ra the Egyptian god of the sun. Many song lyrics are now interpreted and translated to English or other languages and the originals writings are kept in museums around the world.
Song lyrics have taken their special place since the ending of the Baroko and special attention has been given since then. The Lyrics revolution appears with the fast development of technology where music has gained a special place in every culture. The early 60es, 70es and 90es bring the first lyrics that people actually paid special attention on, since they represented the emotional adventures, the life experience etc. Love has gained a special place in song lyrics since it's descriptions, stories and adventures are an enormous source of experience and inspiration.
With the appearance of computers, internet, mp3 players etc, lyrics have made yet another revolution in song writing and music it's self. Since the music is developing really fast and the number of different style is constantly increasing, lyrics again become more like one with the music and sometimes are hard to understand or remember.

UK songwriter and rapper, Dizzee Rascal, has re-recorded his famed 2010 World Cup unofficial anthem in support of the English soccer team to reach the top of the ladder for Euro 2012. The original collaboration, released back in 2010, became a number one hit in the charts. Everyone knows the tune since it is a reworking of the classic Tears for Fears hit "Shout". In the 2010 music video, Dizzee sings the raps in a huge crowd at the football stadium with actor James Corden helping with some of the vocals - along with contributions from the football fan crowd of course.
The 2012 version has two new verses added, which further support the English team to go all the way to the top this time. The new lyrics include, "Come on England, here we go again, but this time we're gonna stick it out to the end", "A new manager and fresh faces, top of the leaderboard, you're really going places", and "2012 the year we show the world what we got."
The 2010 version raised over 85,000 pounds for the Great Ormond Street Hospital, and this time round, Dizzee desperately wants to go far in excess of that. This new revamped version again has all royalties from the sales of the track going to benefit the Great Ormond Street Hospital.
