Song Stories: Lyrics Matter

“What’s that?” he shouted at the top of his voice.

“I said ‘I don’t understand what they’re singing’”.


“Never mind.”

The band kept going.  The crowd got louder and wilder with each song blasting through the arena.

“It really doesn’t matter anyway, does it?  People will enjoy live music regardless.”


“Lyrics don’t matter”.

“Lyrics don’t matter? Are you crazy?”


“Never mind. It doesn’t matter.”

“Yeah, exactly.  Lyrics don’t matter.”

Neither one tried to talk for the rest of the concert.  One was annoyed and the other didn’t understand why.
