Red Rubber Ball – Song Lyric Sunday – Metaphor
Helen has taken another suggestion from Jim, and used the prompt of ‘metaphor’ used in songs. Thanks Helen, and Jim! 🙂
I had to look up what a metaphor was. It seems it is about the same as a simile, but not exactly. A simile says one thing is like another thing, and a metaphor doesn’t use the word ‘like’, but still compares two ideas. Well, sorry, I’m not good at explaining these things. Here’s Jim’s explanation, which is far better than mine: A metaphor is a comparison between two words or phrases that doesn’t use the words “like” or “as”, because then it would be a simile.
Go check out Song Lyric Sunday! It’s so much fun! Also, stop by Jim’s place to see the song he chose…it’s a good one! 🙂
I’ve always liked this song, and every time I hear it, it reminds me of the time I was in Jr. High School. I took a summer class of homemaking/sewing/cooking, that summer. We had a lot of fun, and could listen to the radio while we were in class. This song played a lot during those days.
I think this song uses both metaphor and simile. Can you find them?
The lyrics are on the video!
“Red Rubber Ball”, by the Cyrkle, was released in 1966 from their album, “Red Rubber Ball”. It was written by Paul Simon and Bruce Woodley, and is on the Columbia label.
