Can songwriters write lyrics to fit a given piece of music?

Yes, lyrics can be written to an existing melody. It is done all the time. For the lyricist it provides a strong framework on which to build. Essentially for many songwriters when they write the second or third verse to a song, they are in reality writing lyrics to an existing melody. http://learnhowtowritesongs.com/writing-your-own-songs/

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Here’s another benefit to collaborating when songwriting. If the co-writers are members of different performing rights organizations (ASCAP, BMI or SESAC) they will each register the song with their respective organizations. Now, instead of only one P.R.O. tracking the performances of the song, there may be two or more organizations tracking the same song and increasing the potential for maximum performance royalty payments.
