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:

    Use simple words. Avoid large and clumsy words unless it has some inherent purpose. Listeners relate better to simple words, and they tend to fit into melodies more readily. Large and complex words with more than two syllables can sometimes feel awkward in a song.
