Are there any songs that have lyrics with a similar voice/diction to the poet Gary Soto? (More specifically, his diction in the poem "Oranges.") I kind of need an answer by tomorrow morning! Please help!
The only songwriter I can think of who might have lyrics that are similar to the voice in Gary Soto's work is Paul Simon -- but not all his work, probably just some of his later works. Use Google to look for paul simon lyrics.
Here's Gary Soto's poem:

If another teacher reads this poem, he or she might be able to think of something.
