Rough

All aspiring songwriters know that first drafts can be really raw. Even great lyricists often start with a few scribbled notes that rarely resemble the finished masterpiece.

For example, here’s the original first verse from the beloved Spin Doctors song “Two Princes.”

Three Princes

One two princes here before you
that’s what I said now
a third one, he is just out fishing
that’s what I said now
that third one, a totally cool dude
oh get with him now
he knows, how to tie his own flies
oh he’s the man now
