Asked by James

What are two songs with examples of metonymy or paradox in the lyrics?

Hi James, So for a song with examples of paradox the first one that comes to mind is Hot n Cold by Katy Perry " "you're hot n you're cold You're yes n you're no" And there are a couple that I can think of for metonymy - Hey Jude by The Beatles "Remember to let her into your heart" Single ladies - beyonce " if you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it" Umbrella - Rihanna " You have my heart , and we'll never be worlds apart "
