Lyrics:
Talk all the talk with a poet's style
Tongue like electric, eyes like a child
Eye on your wives and the classic cars
Live like a savior, live like the stars
Talk all the talk with a model's smile
Tongue like electric, eyes like a child
Buy all your highs and the classic cars
Die on the front page, just like the stars
The big screens, the plastic-made dreams
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
It's our world, the picture-book girls
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
Don't you ask me if it's love, my dear
Love don't really mean a thing 'round here
The fake scenes the plastic-made dreams
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
Pace all the rooms with a jealous style
Tongue like electric, eyes like a child
Paint all your soul with the brand designs
Preach like a savior, heart on the line
Talk all the talk with a model's smile
Tongue like electric, eyes like a child
Buy all your highs and the classic cars
Die on the front page, just like the stars
The big screens, the plastic-made dreams
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
It's our world, the picture-book girls
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
Don't you ask me if it's love, my dear
Love don't really mean a thing 'round here
The fake scenes the plastic-made dreams
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
The big screens, the plastic-made dreams
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
It's our world, the picture-book girls
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it

The big screens, the plastic-made dreams


Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
It's our world, the picture-book girls
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
Don't you ask me if it's love, my dear
Love don't really mean a thing 'round here
The fake scenes the plastic-made dreams
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
Say you don't want it, say you don't want it
Highlighted modal verb: Imperative
General rules and uses of the modal verb:
You can use the imperative form to give an order, to give a warning or advice, and (if you use "please") to make a request.


  • To make the imperative, use the infinitive of the verb without 'to':

Come here!
Sit down!



  • To make a negative imperative, put "do not" or "don't" before the verb:

Don't go!
Do not walk on the grass.



  • The imperative can be used for all subjects (you, he, they and we), but you can also use "let's" before the verb if you are including yourself in the imperative:

Let's stop now.
Let's have some lunch.



  • The negative of "let's" is "let's not":

Let's not argue!
Let's not tell her about it.



Be

Don’t be afraid.

Play

Play quietly.

Put

Put three eggs in a bowl.

Talk

Talk to me!

Analysis of the examples in the song:
Podemos observar na letra da música a presença de verbos no modo imperative: talk (converse), live (viva), die (morra), pace (passe), paint (pinte), preach (pregue), buy (compre), say (diga). Eles aparecem na base form e são considerados regulares ou irregulares apenas em outras formas.

Além disso, o sujeito não aparece nas frases, seguindo as regras, mas há uma exceção em “Don't you ask me if it's love, my dear” (Não me pergunte se isso é amor, minha querida), onde o compositor coloca o sujeito (you) para dar mais ênfase ao desafio imposto por ele no verso.



O imperative é usado na música, pois todos os verbos constituem um pedido, convite, instrução ou uma ordem, sendo o uso do imperative apresentado anteriormente: “You can use the imperative form to give an order, to give a warning or advice”.
