      My all-time favorite is:

      life's the same except for my shoes

       

      Deep!

       

       

      And what does every guy picture when they hear this song?

        And what does every guy picture when they hear this song?

         

        I am going to say...

         

        And you can quote me as saying I was mis-quoted. Groucho Marx

          BTW, there are so many dumb lyrics in pop, metal, etc, that it’s to be expected.  The great dumb lyrics (or maybe bad lyrics) are those that come from great songwriters.  Someone mentioned Dylan earlier.  One of my favorites (about Lenny Bruce):


          Never robbed any churches, nor cut off any babies' heads
          He just took the folks in high places
          And he shined a light in their beds.

          Can you imagine the process here? “I need a rhyme for ‘beds.’  Keds?  No.  Feds?  Too obvious.  I’ve got it!  ‘Cut off any babies’ heads.’  Yeah, that’ll work!”

            Another winner from America. Why muskrats??? And why would anyone remake this???

             

            Muskrat, muskrat candlelight 
            Doin' the town and doin' it right 
            In the evenin' 
            It's pretty pleasin' 

            Muskrat Susie, Muskrat Sam 
            Do the jitterbug out in muskrat land 
            And they shimmy 
            And Sammy's so skinny 

            And they whirled and they twirled and they tangoed 
            Singin' and jingin' the jango 
            Floatin' like the heavens above 
            It looks like muskrat love 

            Nibbling on bacon, chewin' on cheese 
            Sammy says to Susie "Honey, would you please be my missus?" 
            And she say yes 
            With her kisses 

            And now he's ticklin' her fancy 
            Rubbin' her toes 
            Muzzle to muzzle, now anything goes 
            As they wriggle, and Sue starts to giggle 

            And they whirled and they twirled and they tangoed 
            Singin' and jingin' the jango 
            Floatin' like the heavens above 
            It looks like muskrat love

                Ultra Cowboy

                  On the first part of the journey, 
                  I was looking at all the life. 
                  There were plants and birds. and rocks and things
                  There was sand and hills and rings. 
                  The first thing I met, was a fly with a buzz, 
                  And the sky, with no clouds. 
                  The heat was hot, and the ground was dry, 
                  But the air was full of sound. 

                  I've been through the desert on a horse with no name, 
                  It felt good to be out of the rain.
                  In the desert you can remember your name, 
                  'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain. 
                  La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
                  La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

                   

                  And things?  Just gave up there, huh?  Plus, did he just offer "rocks and things" as a subcategory of "all the life" he was looking at?  

                   

                  Wasn't this banned because the radio stations thought it was a metaphor for Heroin?

                  Drying out?

                  Seeing things that were unnoticed before?

                  remembering your name?

                  I'm a rambler, I'm a gambler, I'm a green lumber handler, I'm a gypo from Pelican Bay....

                     

                    I am going to say...

                     

                     

                    Exactly what I thought.

                      and who can forget this:

                       

                      yellow matter custard

                      dripping from a dead dog's eye

                      crabalocker fishwife

                      pornagraphic priestess

                      boy you"ve been a naughty girl

                      you let your knickers down

                       

                      chorus: (sing along everyone!)

                      I am the eggman

                      they are the eggmen

                      I am the walrus

                      goo goo g'joob

                       

                      sitting in an english garden

                      waiting for the sun

                      if the sun don't come you get a tan

                      from standing in the English rain

                       

                      chorus: (come on everyone sing along! I know you cant help yourself)

                              Yes, the version you are remembering is by HH.  However, that is a much older song (1910).

                                I love The Beatles, but there's one song's lyrics that I find annoying: Hello, Goodbye.

                                 

                                .

                                 

                                Paul McCartney wrote a lot of stupid lyrics.
