"We Are Young" and "Deeper than the Holler"


"We Are Young" by FUN has some very hyperbolic lyrics:

Tonight, we are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

"Deeper than the Holler" by Randy Travis poked some fun at hyperbolic song lyrics:

Well I've heard those city singers singin' 'bout how they can love,
Deeper than the oceans, higher than the stars above.
Well, I come from the country, and I know I ain't seen it all.
But I heard that ocean's salty, and the stars, they sometimes fall.
