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.

Hank Williams Jr. has just released a new album but it seems he’s got more that he wants to share with the world. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the singer made some incredibly controversial statements about the nation’s Commander in Chief, President Barack Obama.
Williams Jr. said: "I mean, the guy is the worst. Giveaway programs, hates America in the first place, forget about the flag. [Imitating President Obama] 'That's one of those big rich fat cats that makes $35,000 a year,' you know what I mean?”
He goes on to say: "It was some of the greatest inspiration I ever had that because that song of mine, 'We Don't Apologize for America,' there's a guy named Marcus Luttrell that was a lone survivor of the Navy Seals, and he said, 'I want to thank you for writing that because every military person in this country is going to buy that song.' That's the ones that I care about. Barack and his? I could care less. I'm writing for the ones that mean something to me."
On a track from his new album Old School, New Rules, titled “Keep the Change” (get it? Change? Obama’s slogan?), he sings: "I will keep my Christian name and you all can keep the change."
To elaborate this lyric, he explains: "We've got a President that does a call to the Koran or Mecca or whatever. That's what I meant. That's exactly what I meant. I won't be changing my name to whatever. That's exactly what I meant."
How does he feel about Obama’s opponent, Mitt Romney? "He's the guy I'm behind," Hank admitted. "He's the guy we need, but I'm not going to go out there and do his shows or anything. I mean, we've got the worst in history. We've got to have something. We've got to have a change, that's for sure. They kind of turned me off. I'm not doing any of them ... They better remember like [Richard] Mourdock, the Tea Party, the guy that just won in Indiana. They better take note of that guy, too. And Marco Rubio. I'm firmly behind Marco Rubio. I really like that guy."
Well, you can’t accuse Hank Williams Jr. of being shy!
