Lyric analysis of chosen song

  1. 1. Lyric analysis of chosen Song
  2. 2. Lyrics of the song [Verse 1] I can remember that when I was a little youth I, Wanted to fly around the world making a new life, I never thought today, I'd be where I am now, Yo, wanted to be a fireman, Than I lost the desire man, The second I got old enough, To buy myself a cider can, Yeah, I was a smart little kid, That sides departed me since, These days you can find me, Sitting on the bench in the park with a lager and crisps [Chorus] Back when I was younger, I wanted to be everything on the planet, Now that I am older, It seems the ambition has vanished, Yeah when I was a youngster, When I was a, When I was a youngster, Youngster, when I was a youngster And now that I'm older, I wish I coulda been everything that I wanted, I'm on it [Verse 2] I think that if I think back back to the days When I thought I didn't think that, Nothing that I thought could not be possible, Ha, try and figure that out, Back when I didn't know how, To settle for a desk job bring in those pounds, I wanted to live in those clouds, These days I deliver those sounds [Verse 3] I always thought of myself as a simple dreamer, Never tried to hard but believed it, Now all of a sudden, It's gone my way [Chorus] Back when I was younger, I wanted to be everything on the planet, Now that I am older, It seems the ambition has vanished, Yeah when I was a youngster, When I was a, When I was a youngster, Youngster, when I was a youngster And now that I'm older, I wish I coulda been everything that I wanted, I'm on it (3x)
  3. 3. Analysis of lyrics In this verse the term “I can remember” suggests that something in his past may be shown in the scene. “Little youth” suggest the sort of memory such as playful and lively. “Fly around the world making a new life” suggests that he had big dreams as a kid”. The part when it says “I’d be where I am now” either shows he is claiming he is successful or shocked that he didn’t make it. In this verse there are words which portray what his desires were as a child i.e. “wanted to be a fireman”. However he also tells us that he “lost the desire” once he got “old enough”. He also suggested his life of being a “smart little kid” has been forgotten of and now all he does is “sit on a bench in the park with a lager and crisps” portraying him as a stereotypical lazy teenager. [Verse 1] I can remember that when I was a little youth I, Wanted to fly around the world making a new life, I never thought today, I'd be where I am now, Yo, wanted to be a fireman, Than I lost the desire man, The second I got old enough, To buy myself a cider can, Yeah, I was a smart little kid, That sides departed me since, These days you can find me, Sitting on the bench in the park with a lager and crisps
  4. 4. Analysis of lyrics In this verse the artist further reinstates the big dreams he had as a youngster through the line “I wanted to be everything on the planet”. In this verse the artist also shows signs of regret through the line “now that I’m older, I wish I could’ve been everything that I wanted” The first few lines of this song it suggests how the way he thought changed from a child to a teenager. The fourth line suggests he said a pun in the third line and this may reflect the humour and childish atmosphere of this song. The line “to settle for a desk job bring in those pounds” in comparison to “live in those clouds” just reflects the way in which he used to think life was life when he was a child in comparison to now as a young adult. [Chorus] Back when I was younger, I wanted to be everything on the planet, Now that I am older, It seems the ambition has vanished, Yeah when I was a youngster, When I was a, When I was a youngster, Youngster, when I was a youngster And now that I'm older, I wish I coulda been everything that I wanted, I'm on it [Verse 2] I think that if I think back back to the days When I thought I didn't think that, Nothing that I thought could not be possible, Ha, try and figure that out, Back when I didn't know how, To settle for a desk job bring in those pounds, I wanted to live in those clouds, These days I deliver those sounds
  5. 5. Analysis of lyrics The terms “simple dreamer” suggest him as a simple minded guy who does dream on the occasion. He also reinstates him being a lazy teenager through the terms “I never tried too hard”. [Verse 3] I always thought of myself as a simple dreamer, Never tried to hard but believed it, Now all of a sudden, It's gone my way In this verse the artist further reinstates the big dreams he had as a youngster through the line “I wanted to be everything on the planet”. In this verse the artist also shows signs of regret through the line “now that I’m older, I wish I could’ve been everything that I wanted” [Chorus] Back when I was younger, I wanted to be everything on the planet, Now that I am older, It seems the ambition has vanished, Yeah when I was a youngster, When I was a, When I was a youngster, Youngster, when I was a youngster And now that I'm older, I wish I coulda been everything that I wanted, I'm on it
