For instance, “Mary Had a Little Lamb”, “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”, “London Bridge” or “Old McDonald” are pretty simple songs. Now, think about what you want to say. Do you want to say that you love him or her? Do you want to highlight something special about him or her? Do you want to write a song about a favorite memory you have shared?

Let me give you a very simple example…
