Worst Lyrics

Recommended Posts

Inspired by M S E Refugee's quote of 

Quote

Human has some of the worst lyrics ever written in music apart from Snap's "I'm serious as cancer,when I say rhythm is a dancer"

Lets have your worst lyrics, my vote goes to 

I don't want to see a ghost, 
It's a sight that I fear most 
I'd rather have a piece of toast 

The whole thing sounds like it's been written by a 4 year old.

^ Nice song though. It was used in Ford's ad campaign for the original Focus when that was launched in 1998.

How about this one?

Yeah. Take THAT, society! xD

And also can I nominate the Black Eyed Peas - My Humps. Ugh. O.o

Example, Changed the Way You Kiss Me (apparently, had to google the shit lyrics)

I've never been afraid of the highest heights
Or afraid of flying now
I've never been afraid of the wildest fights
Not afraid of dying

...you big fucking gayer

Perhaps that's not what you want to hear whilst your locked up...

Number forty-seven said to number three
"You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see
I sure would be delighted with your company
Come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me"

David Hasslehof's Jump in my car. The lyrics sound like a Bradford taxi driver outside a school.

A snippet:

Jump in my car
I wanna take you home
Jump in my car
It's too far walk on your own

(No, thank you, sir)
Ah, come on I'm a trustworthy guy
(No, thank you, sir)
Oh little girl, I wouldn't tell you no lies
(I know your game)

How can you say that we only just met
(You're all the same)
Ooh she's got me there, but I'll get her yet
(I got you there)

No, you didn't, I was catching my breath
And look it's starting to rain
And baby you'll catch your death
(Well, I dunno)
Ah, come it comes nothing to try
And you'll arrive home nice and dry

That was the exact line I came onto this thread to post. I actually like the song, but FFS that line is just appalling. It doesn't even fit properly. I was genuinely thinking of writing to Toto to ask just what the fuck they thought they were doing and if they've come to their senses yet, but I thought that might seem a bit rude.

My own submission - Manfred Mann, Blinded by the light. It's so unfathomably awful that I can only bring myself to post the first verse and chorus, but rest assured the remainder of it is equally hideous:

Quote

Madman drummer bummers
Indians in the summer
With a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps
As the adolescent pumps
His way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder
Feeling kinda older
I tripped a merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing
Sneezing and wheezing
The calliope crashed to the ground
The calliope crashed to the ground

[Chorus:]
But she was blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night.
Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night.
Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night.

It's actually a Bruce Springsteen song from his first album although the original lyrics have been changed a bit e.g. 'cut loose like a deuce' rather than 'revved up'

Well I'll be damned, if you'd asked me who came first of Manfred Mann and Bruce Springsteen I'd have been convinced that Springsteen must have been the one to cover it. This leaves me in a bit of a pickle, because it's "revved up like a deuce" that I find particularly objectionable. Then again, the whole song is shit, so I'm sticking with my original assessment.

I bought the MM version as a single when I was a kid so heard that first and bought the Springsteen album a few years later. I like them both but then again, I don't take that much interest in lyrics as a rule.
