⚡GPT-3 Songwriting: Lyrics Generation Using Chat GPT

In this post, I’m going to show you how you can use ChatGPT to generate music lyrics fast. I will guide you through how to set the length, mood, style, and genre, and how to structure your song. Finally, we’ll also learn how you can add your story to the song to make it personal and relatable all using GPT-3 songwriting skills.

So before we start, I would like to share with you some of the readily available platforms that can help you with this. Platforms such as

  1. LyricStudio
  2. RapPad 
  3. RhymeZone
  4. Hookpad
  5. RapScript
  6. Rytr.me Lyrics Generator

will help you write your song faster, and I will discuss some of them in detail at the end of the post.

Without further ado, here’s how you can generate your lyrics using ChatGPT.

Brainstorming On The Song Title

Before you start songwriting using GPT 3, you need to have a clear title for your song. We need the title so that we can give a direct prompt to ChatGPT and let it write our lyrics.

For example, if you want to write a love song, a motivational song, a break-up song, or something about life, you need to have a title for it. Let’s go with the break-up song and see how ChatGPT can create it.

Here are some song titles that could fit a break-up song:

  1. “I Loved You”,
  2. “You Had To Go”,
  3. “I Can’t”, and
  4. “Let’s Break Up”.

These may be the perfect titles. Let’s try and generate song lyrics using ChatGPT using one of the titles.

Our prompt:

Generate lyrics for a break-up song title [“I Can’t”]. 

Click to generate.

Let’s see the results.

Asking Chat GPT For Title Suggestions

I know coming up with the best song title can be hard, but we can use ChatGPT to generate our lyrics title with just a simple command.

Let’s start with a simple prompt:

Generate five break-up song titles.

Results: Go check and type the prompt and see the result

Now, let’s add some more details to our prompt:

You’re an expert songwriter, generate five sad break-up song titles, taking into consideration the relationship that lasted many years and she is the one who left.


As you can see, there’s a difference in the titles generated compared to the previous results. I think these are better. Now you can choose one to use in the next part.

Writing Prompt To Generate Our Song Lyrics

“In this part, we’re going to use everything we’ve seen above. To generate our song lyrics, we need to be clear on what we need and how we want it to be, including the parts and structure of the song. You have to write a prompt to specify all that.

Here’s a simple generic prompt that will still work:

Write a break-up lyrics with the title [“I Can’t”].

As a songwriter, you need to know which parts will start, such as the chorus, as in the song structure.

Now let’s write a prompt for that.

You’re an expert songwriter who has written songs that have reached the top 10 on the Billboard charts, and some of your songs have reached triple platinum. Generate lyrics for a melancholic break-up song with the title “I Can’t”

Adding Style and Your Story

As you have seen, we did not include the style, genre, or story in the previous prompts. In this section, I’m going to show you how to write your prompt to generate the perfect lyrics for a Billboard song. Let’s do this. The prompt should look something like this:

You’re an expert songwriter who has written songs that have reached the top 10 on the Billboard charts and some of your songs have reached triple platinum.

Generate Rihanna-style lyrics for a melancholic break-up pop song with the title [“I Can’t”]. The song should be a story of a woman who leaves a guy after he loses his job and is diagnosed with a life-threatening disease for a rich guy. She leaves without saying goodbye. The song must start with a chorus and end with a chorus.

As you can see, we’ve added all the information we need for our song, including style, genre, and story structure. Let’s see the results.

Results: Go paste the prompt on chat gpt to do the songwriting for you and come back

Just read through the lyrics. It’s sad and the story is correct, and even the structure is fine. You can easily sing this song. All you need now is a sick beat.
