20 Worst Lyrics

Recommended Posts

What did you just do, then?

Peaches snuck in before I got in, and I realized that it would look better if I put the quote on top. By the time I figured out how to delete a post, you had already gotten one in. Hey, cut me some slack; I've been away for quite a while.

:afro: :afro: :afro: :doh:

Here're some of the ones that I can't stand.

I'm A Boy - The Who

I'm a boy, I'm a boy,

But my ma won't admit it.

I'm a boy, I'm a boy,

But if I say I am, I get it.

I just can't understand this song. I would be ashamed of myself for writing this.

I Started A Joke - The Bee Gees

I started a joke, which started the whole world crying,

But I didn't see that the joke was on me, oh no.

I started to cry, which started the whole world laughing.

Oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was on me.

I looked at the skies, running my hands over my eyes

And I fell out of bed, hurting my head from things that I said.

'Til I finally died, which started the whole world living.

Oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was on me.

It was part of a mini opera, which was never released. I'm a Boy was the only song that survived. It's about a future where parents can determine the sex of their children. A couple requested four girls, but got three girls and a boy, and his mother treats him just like his siblings. That's why.

I suppose you didn't really want to know this. :P

Lyrics don't come much more cringeworthy than this, in my book. Utter guff from start to finish.

"Abracadabra", by the Steve Miller Band.

I heat up, I can't cool down

You got me spinnin

round and round

round and round and round it goes

Where it stops nobody knows

Every time you call my name

I heat up like a burnin flame

Burnin flame full of desire

Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

Abra-abra-cadabra

I want to reach out and grab ya

Abra-abra-cadabra

Abracadabra

You make me hot, you make me sigh

You make me laugh, you make me cry

Keep me burnin for your love

With the touch of a velvet glove

Abra-abra-cadabra

I want to reach out and grab ya

Abra-abra-cadabra

Abracadabra

I feel the magic in your caress

I feel magic when I touch your dress

Silk and satin, leather and lace

Black panties with an angels face

I see magic in your eyes

I hear the magic in your sighs

Just when I think Im gonna get away

I hear those words that you always say

Abra-abra-cadabra

I want to reach out and grab ya

Abra-abra-cadabra

Abracadabra

Every time you call my name

I heat up like a burnin flame

Burnin flame full of desire

Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

I heat up, I cant cool down

My situation goes round and round

I heat up, I cant cool down

My situation goes round and round

I heat up, I cant cool down

My situation goes round and round

I still contend that it's stupid. <screamty8.gifv Lighthouse, right?

In case you're still referring to the Who, it's Lifehouse, not Lighthouse. I'm A Boy has nothing to do with Lifehouse, that didn't come about until about three years later.

Some of Depeche Mode's attempts at well-intentioned social comment have been gauche, bordering on downright tragic.

One example in particular, the mere thought of which makes me wince:

"People are people, so why should it be

That you and I should get along so awfully?"

Atrocious.

I love Tom Jones in all his glorious swarthiness, but one of his lyrics particularly makes me furious at its stupidity:

"Well, she's all you'd ever want

She's the kind I like to flaunt and take to dinner"

If she were ugly she wouldn't deserve to eat? (the whole is song is just utterly sexist)

That reminded me of the Four Tops song "Ain't No Woman". It is a fantastic song except for the following lyric:

"I would kiss the ground she walks on

'Cause it's my word, my word she'll obey, now"

You must be out of your mother loving mind. Obey? Obey? Obey? You want your woman to obey your word? To quote Whitney Houston, the noted post-modern feminist, hell to the no.

They called the Gothenburg group Tages the Swedesh Beatles, but I thought they were embarrasingly bad and so were the lyrics of their songs IMO. Here's one of them:

Hey mama

Hey, Mama, do you know?

He's got a girl who loves him so

Hey there, Papa, have you heard?

He's got a love fever

So why can't that boy, our boy

Find a true love and have some joy

"Listen to me, sonny," his Daddy said

"If you find a girl, then you'll wish you were dead

'Cause do not think she'll be true to you

That's the worst thing you ever can do"

So why can't that boy, our boy

Find a true love and have some joy
