The Scaremongers-Born in a Barn

Simon Armitage say in an interview that there is no common technique of pop-lyrics and poetry to be interpreted the same way, is he sure about that? Can't you put a poem into music and lyrics into a song? He says, no. "Poems have their own music". So why does the song "You can do nothing wrong (In my Eyea) evoke his same poems then?

If you take this sing and read it as a poem, do you notice any difference? would you know it's not a poem? (line 8 of the song: the corduroy is back!)
