You got you, babe
While I was walking through the stupid parking lot at the local grocery store, I got the idea to change first person song lyrics and titles into the second person.
“You Believe You Can Fly” might be ironic or condescending.
“You Believe the Children Are the Future?” sounds cynical or something.
“You Go to Extremes” sounds like a couple fighting. And this really unravels a lot of hip hop lyrics.
I guess I wasn’t sure what to do with phrases that contain more than one pronoun so I just steered clear. Maybe just change the first one and leave the rest alone – a name like “You Love You” (vs. “I Love You”) initially sounds clunky but it could work as a commentary on narcissism.
Or something. You Got You, Babe.
