I'm writing song lyrics and "the" just ruins the melody. I want the lines to be "Sun is shining bright" and "Stars are shining bright". I think I saw songwriters omitting the article such as in Bruce Dickinson's "The Tower":

"The moon and sun divided"

Is it considered okay to do so?

  • Do you think in THE moon and sun and earth ...." the definite article has been omitted? – haha Mar 29 '18 at 10:59
  • @haha well, it's not there for the last two words – Pray2Jesus Mar 30 '18 at 11:55
  • Don't you think it is already there for three of them and you don't need to repeat every time? You may find your answer here. I hope it helps you. – haha Mar 30 '18 at 15:23
