How to write a song from a speech outline part 2

This song, “I ain’t got time,” is the fulfillment of my attempt to use the Ken Davis #SCORRE framework for speech preparation to write a song. Enjoy!

The Outline

Subject: Love

Central Theme: The demonstration of love

Objective Sentence: Every wife (my wife in particular) can know her husband loves her by his making these 3 sacrifices

R&R:

  • Sacrificing time shows her he is willing to give her what he can’t get back
  • Sacrificing resources provides her security
  • Sacrificing pride shows her that he values her above himself
  • The Lyrics
    I ain’t got time, but I sure got time for you
    I ain’t got time, but I sure got time for you
    Time slips away but it’s you I’d hate to lose

    When you see what you want, baby, that’s what you’ll get
    When you see what you want, baby, that’s what you’ll get
    Stay with me, darlin’, I’ll make sure you’re set

    There ain’t another woman, no other woman I’d choose
    There ain’t another woman, no other woman I’d choose
    The way you walk so fine I’d love to be your walkin’ shoes

    You know I love you sugar, you ain’t got a price
    You know I love you sugar, you ain’t got a price
    Lovin’ on you is worth any sacrifice

    William Stonewall Monroe
