Gifts to Rock 'n' Roll IV - Bad Romance

 The lyric of Bad Romance, stunning and unforgettable, contains one word that grates each time I hear the tune, namely:


 "We could write a bad romance . . . ." 


People in the tune do not strike one as writers, or seem likely to develop into writers. Might be an improvement to make it:


"We could swing a wack romance . . . ." or


"We could chase a dead romance."


Offered for what it's worth. The tune is a classic and Gaga delivers it with utmost style and conviction.
