Goodbye Earl Lyrics
All through their high school days
Both members of the 4h club
Both active in the ffa
After graduation mary anne went out lookin
For a bright new world
Wanda looked all around this town

Omg I can’t find any literary devices in this song! Help?
Catchy song about murdering someone....Good material.
This song says to me that it's ok to kill someone if they're harming you...say a boss that yells at you or maybe that guy that took your parking spot ( for the last time)... I'm sure prisons wouldn't be overpopulated if this thinking caught on...we could all be makin jam and selling ham...
I don't agree with domestic violence or hitting woman but I think Tim McGraw doesn't have a problem... Maybe he should have some black eyed peas ...

This song deals with an abusive relationship and one way to deal with it. The girl in the song meets a guy named Earl who seems perfect-that is until they get married and he begins physically abusing her, i.e. Hitting. Her friend decides to have him killed and they later find out that no one even cared that Earl was gone. Its one of the few songs that gets away with singing about murdering someone...impressive.
