Liking to write song (8)


I believe the answer is:


'liking' is the definition.
(I know that penchant is a type of liking)

'write song' is the wordplay.
'write' becomes 'pen' (synonyms).
'song' becomes 'chant' (song sung by a crowd).

'to' is the link.

(Other definitions for penchant that I've seen before include "Inclination, bent" , "weakness" , "Fondness (for) - bias (towards)" , "Disposition" , "Strong liking, inclination" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
