Poetic Devices in Song Lyrics
Hyperbole
A comparison of two things (that may or not be alike) using the words like or as.
A comparison of two unlike things without using like or as. (Things = person, place, thing, or thought)
A type of metaphor in which non-human things or ideas possess human qualities or actions.
Words which end with the same sounds, usually
at the end of lines.
An obvious and deliberate exaggeration (to emphasize something or for humorous purposes).
Extended
Activity
students are asked to find their own song lyrics and work independently
have students identify, label, and explain at least 4 types of figurative language or poetic devices used in the song lyrics.
to be handed in for an individual grade
Theory
The occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words.
The formation of a word from a sound associated with what is named (e.g., cuckoo, sizzle).
EXAMPLE - "Firework" by Katy Perry

Do you ever feel
like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards
, one blow from caving in?
EXAMPLE: "Life is a Highway" by Tom Cochran

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
EXAMPLE: "The Music of the Night" by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation.
Darkness wakes and stir imagination.
Silently
the senses abandon their defenses
,
Helpless to resist the notes I write,
For I compose the Music of the Night.
EXAMPLE: "Boom Boom Pow" by the Black Eyed Peas

I'm on that supersonic
boom
Y'all hear that spaceship
zoom
When-when I step inside the room
Them girls go ape ape uh
Y'all stuck on super-8-8-8
That low-fi super 8 bit
I'm on that HD flat
This beat go
boom boom bap
.
EXAMPLE: "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...
EXAMPLE: "Grenade" by Bruno Mars

I'd catch a grenade for ya
Throw my hand on a blade for ya
I'd jump in front of a train for ya
You know I'd do anything for ya
