Songwriters Of New York
welcome to Songwriters Of New York. We are a group of 24 young song writers who
are posting our lyrics on the net for you and anyone else who finds them to use.
On this site you will find hundreds of brand new song lyrics.
None of them have been used before. The site is intended to be used by musicians,
arrangers and composers as the first resource of its kind in the world. Use our
song words with your music.

what we have been doing. Any money which is raised from this site will be shared

take 30% of the gross royalties. That is, you keep 70% of everything that the
The writers are listed here in no particular order. Some of them are using
names which are not their own. Please remember that we all live and work here
and sometimes it would be difficult for people that we work with to know exactly
what we are doing!
Good luck! Enjoy your journey through all
24 of our members work. Don’t
just dip in and think that you have an idea of what the site is all about. Every
writer is very different. Some are soft and some are very hard edged.
