Sometimes I love the lyrics to songs, until I find out what the real lyrics are, then I don't like them anymore.
Pretty ok, I think. But I'd guess that a native speaker that is used to listening to lyrics has an advantage over me. If I am to pull out the lyrics, it usually takes a couple of listenings, playing, pausing, rewinding. And there are often a couple of words/phrases in a song that can be particularly hard to decode, though. Then it's - guesswork! (=artistic interpretation).So my question is for non-native speakers of English: Can you make out English song lyrics very well?
I'm in your case but with a higher handicap for sure. A few words, sometime "sentences" is all I can understand most of the time.I'm a native English speaker and many songs, especially rock songs, sound like gibberish to me. I'm not particularly unusual this way, and I think we've had threads on that before. But I can't imagine how hard it must be for non-native speakers! Now that we have the innerwebs we can find song lyrics, thankfully.
