1.1  Backround Of The Study
Musica universalis or musica mundana referred to the order of the universe, as God had created it in "measure, number and weight". The proportions of the spheres of the planets and stars (which at the time were still thought to revolve around the earth) were perceived as a form of music, without necessarily implying that any sound would be heard music refers strictly to the mathematical proportions. From this concept later resulted the romantic idea of a music of the spheres. Musica humana, designated the proportions of the human body. These were thought to reflect the proportions of the Heavens and as such, to be an expression of God's greatness. To Medieval thinking,
all things were connected with each other a mode of thought that finds its traces today in the occult sciences or esoteric thought ranging from astrology to believing certain minerals have certain beneficiary effects.
Musica instrumentalis, finally, was the lowliest of the three disciplines and referred to the manifestation of those same mathematical proportions in sound be it sung or played on instruments. The polyphonic organization of different melodies to sound at the same time was still a relatively new invention then, and it is understandable that the mathematical or physical relationships in frequency that give rise to the musical intervals as we hear them, should be foremost among the preoccupations of Medieval musicians.
Many kinds of songs are ones that are very familiar to teenagers. They represent teenager’s feeling and emotion. Moreover those who are falling in love with someone.

1.5  Limitation Of The Study

2.1  Syntax
Syntax is branch of  linguistic that studies the arrangement of the relationship among words, phrases, and clause forming sentences: sentences Structure (Webster, 1988: 1.359). It is a set of principle, or constitutive rules, or according to which words are combined into sentences in a language (Falk, 1973: 163). Bornstein (1969:246) also defines syntax as the process by which words are grammatical categories combined to form phrases, clauses and sentences in a language.
            From the definition above, the writer concludes that syntax is branch of linguistics which studies about the construction of phrases and sentences.

Kietley (1982:205) says that sentences is made up of words groups together to complete thought. The first word of sentences is capitalized to indicate the beginning of thought.

Lyrics (in singular form Lyrics) are set f word that accompany music, either by speaking or singing. The words “lyric” derives from the greek word “lyrikos”. Meaning “singing to the lyric” the word lyric came to be to be used for the “words of a popular song”; this meaning was recorded in 1829. the common plural predominates contemporary usage. Use of the singular form “lyric” remains acceptable, yet is considered erroneous in referring to a singular song word as lyric. (lyrics.com).
Lyric that originally refers to lyric poetry is the poetry song to a lyre ( Reaske, 1966:35). Lyric and music are different. But, their combination can make a song. Thus, a song is a lyric set to music intended to be sung (Hornby, 1995:133)
