  • Song By: Jason Mraz By Nicolas
  • LyricsIve been all around the worldIve been a new sensationBut it doesnt really matter In this ge-generationThe sophomore slump is an uphill battleAnd someone said it aint my sceneCause they need a new songLike a new religionMusic for the televisionI cant do the long divisionSomeone do the mathFor the record label puts me on the shelf up in the freezerGot to find another way to live the life of leisureSo I drop my top, mix and I mingleIs everybody ready for the single and it goes
  • Ah, la, la, la, la-listen closer to the verse I layAh, la, la, la, la Its all about the wordplayAh, la, la, la, loveThe wonderful thing it does Because, becauseI am the wizard of oohs and ahs and fa-la-las andThe Mister A-ZThey say Im all about the wordplayWhen its time to get I’ll I got your remedy for those who dont remember meWell, let me introduce you to my styleI try to keep a jumble in the lyricsNever mumbleWhen the musics making people tongue-tiedYou want a new song Like a new religionMusic for the televisionI cant do the long division Someone do the mathFor the people write me off like Im a one-hit wonderGot to find another way to keep from going underPull out the stops- got your attention View slide
  • I guess its time again for me to mention the wordplayAh, la, la, la, la-listen closer to the verse I layAh, la, la, la, laIt’s all about the wordplayAh, la, la, la, loveThe wonderful thing it does Because, becauseI am the wizard of oohs and ahs and fa-la-las andThe Mister A-ZThey say Im all about the wordplayI built a bridge across the stream of consciousnessIt always seems to be a flowingBut I dont know which way my brain is goingOh, the rhyming and the timingKeeps the melodies inside meAnd theyre climbingTill Im running out of airAre you prepared to take a dive into the deep end of my head View slide
  • Are you listening to a single word Ive saidAh, la, la, la, la-Listen closely to the words I sayAh, la, la, la, laIm sticking to the wordplayAh, la, la, la, loveThe wonderful thing it does Because, becauseI am the wizard of oohs and ahs and fa-la-lasYeah, the Mister A-ZThey say Im all about the wordplayAh, la, la, la, laIm all about the wordplayAh, la, la, la, laStickin with the wordplayAh, la, la, la, loveI love the wonderful thing it does Because, becauseThe oohs and ahs and fa-la-las are back in loveFor the Mister A-Z, they sayIs all about the wordplay
  • Figurative Language DevicesSimilePersonificationMetaphorsImageryHyperbole
  •  Simile Cause they need a new songMusic for the televisionI cant do the long divisionSomeone do the mathWhen it says “Like a new religion” it shows how society is always changing and needing new things to occupy themselves with.
  • MetaphorGot to find another way to live the life of leisureSo I drop my top, mix and I mingleIs everybody ready for the single and it goesshows the record label and thus society no longer values him as a good artist.
  • MetaphorIn this ge-generationAnd someone said it aint my sceneThe sophomore slump is an uphill battle - metaphor showing his slump in popularity is a tough battle he has to fight in order to remake his image in fan base and success.
  • MetaphorThey say Im all about the wordplayWhen its time to get I’ll I got your remedy for those who dont remember me"I am the wizard of oohs and ahs and fa-la-las" - metaphor indicating he is now the wizard or expert at words (ie oohs, ahs, fa-la-las) and further claiming himself as "The Mr. A to Z", the master of the alphabet (A-Z).
  • HyperboleI try to keep a jumble in the lyricsNever mumbleYou want a new song Like a new religionMusic for the television "When the musics makin people tongue-tied" - Hyperbole showing how music can confuse people so Mraz has chosen to make this more clear through his lyrical wordplay or poetic technique.
  • Musical Devices End Rhyme End Rhyme Internal Rhyme Repetition
  • End RhymeMusic for the televisI cant do the long divisIn these two lines the ends of the end words rhyme therefore they are an end rhyme .
  • Repetition -listen closer to the verse I lay Its all about the wordplay love Ah, la, la, la, la repeats over and over during a three line part of the song
  • AlliterationBut it doesnt really matterIn this ge-generationFor the record label puts me on the shelf up in the freezerSo I drop my top,Is everybody ready for the single and it goes alliteration - "sophomore slump", "live the life of leisure" "mix and mingle"
