Dumb song lyrics (Read 793 times)

    This isn't quite dumb song lyrics, but the song Stuck at the Airport was playing when I was shopping at Banana Republic a couple days ago and I was thinking, "This song is so annoying".  A few moments later, a couple was joking about it.  I think the guys said, "Then LEAVE!"  I gave him a "I know, right?" smile.

     

    ETA:  I just listened to it again and I think it does count as dumb song lyrics.

    You're too strong not to keep on keepin' on. - The Pips
    Yes, I am! - Gladys Knight

      IMO, most lyrics aren't that great/deep, etc. All you need is a catchy tune and the lyrics can be forgettable.

       

      Here's a song I can't stand:

       

      Trying to connect the dots
      Don't know what to tell my boss
      Think the city towed my car
      Chandeliers on the floor
      Ripped my favorite party dress
      Warrant's out for my arrest
      Think I need a ginger ale
      That was such an epic fail

      Proboscis Colossus

        And if a double-decker bus
        Crashes into us
        To die by your side
        Is such a heavenly way to die

         

        And if a ten ton truck
        Kills the both of us
        To die by your side
        Well the pleasure, the privilege is mine

         

        LOL, Amazon had a The Smiths compilation on sale last month.  Never having heard them before, and being a big Cure fan, I gave it a shot.  That lyric in particular...stood out.

        "God guides us on our journey, but careful with those feet." - David Lee Roth, of all people

          It's a tie between Train's "Meet Virginia" and Train's "Drops of Jupiter."   Terrible, just terrible.

           

          If I go to Hell when I die, Satan is going to be standing at the gate with two tickets to a Train concert. 
          "C'mon, Jason!  The concert is about to start, and we don't want to be late!"

            Have no clue what these lyrics mean, and it doesn't matter, they sound so cool:

            Okay, read the lyrics and see if you think they're silly.   If not, try this version (thanks bhearn, from the Classical Music thread).

            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.


            Imminent Catastrophe

              ...And for the worst song lyrics in the history of music, I submit this:

               

              She wrecked the car and she was sad
              And so afraid that I'd be mad
              But what the heck
              Though I pretended hard to be
              Guess you could say she saw through me
              And hugged my neck

               

              From Bobby Goldsboro's "Honey", surely one of the most dreadfully awful songs ever to hit the top 40. It just doesn't get any worse than this. 

               

              Then there's Morris Albert's "Feelings". Always the last song at those late 70's high school dances. It's no wonder the world is going to hell.

              "Able to function despite imminent catastrophe"

               "To obtain the air that angels breathe you must come to Tahoe"--Mark Twain

              "The most common question from potential entrants is 'I do not know if I can do this' to which I usually answer, 'that's the whole point'.--Paul Charteris, Tarawera Ultramarathon RD.

                There are a lot of bad lyrics out there.  The worst I've ever heard was a Queen Latifah song that goes:

                 

                "Easy lover is something that I ain't

                Besides, I don't know you from a can of paint"

                 

                And then there's this song:

                 

                "Why do you build me up

                Buttercup, baby,

                Just to let me down,

                And mess me around

                And then worst of all,

                You never call baby

                When you say you will.

                But our love is real.

                I need you

                More than anyone darlin'

                So build me up,

                Buttercup,

                Don't break my heart."

                 

                And if anyone listens to Hem, there's this little gem of a line which sounds disgusting, but wasn't intended to:

                 

                "Throw my hat up when I meet you,

                Find it when you're gone."

                Hollie S.


                Merry Christmas!

                  We are never ever ever getting back together

                  We are never ever ever getting back together

                  You go talk to your friends talk to my friends talk to me

                  But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

                   

                  So he calls me up again and he's like, I still love you

                  And I'm just like, this, this is exhausting,

                  You know,

                  Cuz like we are never getting back together.

                  Like ever.

                   

                   

                  Can she shut the heck up? Nobody even likes her.

                   

                  Plus,

                   

                  Hey I just met you

                  and this is crazy

                  but here's my number

                  so call me maybe

                  and all the other boys

                  try to chase me

                  but here's my number

                  so call me maybe

                  (later on)

                  before you came into my life

                  I missed you so bad

                  I missed you so bad

                  I missed you so, so bad.

                   

                  dude, you can't miss someone that you don't know.

                  I wish I was as young as I look in the forum picture! But I'm not. :(

                    The force, it, it's got a lot of power

                    And

                        Well I deliver the prize 
                        But I still narrow my eyes
                        'Cause my time
                        I don't like to waste.

                        But there's gonna be a cost

                        See, my name is Boba Fett

                        When I was a slave
                        Living life in the fast lane
                        Like in a pod race

                        My mean streak tweaked
                        I became a basket case
                        So this space ace
                        Split that place, poste haste

                        Took up a noble cause
                        Called the Clone Wars
                        'Cause life's not all about

                        In fucked up bars
                        See, I'm not a retard
                        Or gay like de Barge

                        I'm large and in charge
                        With a face so scarred
                        A cold black heart
                        That's been torn apart

                        The Sith wish that they 
                        Had a dick so hard
                        'Cause it's long long ago
                        In a pussy far far

                        Call me master, 'cause I'm faster
                        Than Pryor on fire
                        I no longer have to hot wire

                        I'm a hunter for hire
                        With no plans to retire

                          LOL, Amazon had a The Smiths compilation on sale last month.  Never having heard them before, and being a big Cure fan, I gave it a shot.  That lyric in particular...stood out.

                          Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking when I said
                          I'd like to smash every tooth in your head.

                          Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking when I said by rights you should be
                          bludgeoned in your bed.

                            dude, you can't miss someone that you don't know.

                             THANK YOU.

                              Honestly, the Smiths do not belong in this thread.  Both off the above songs are awesome, and if you are going to pick on them, I'm sure there a YWCA lyric you can find which out-dumbs anything in this thread.  But we're 25 yrs past strangeways, I'm sure there's much more contemporary fare...

                                Frankly, Mr. Shankly, I must disagree.

                                The tangents are moot.
