Dumb song lyrics (Read 793 times)

Nightcrawler-


You may be right

    I know that song. I'm having flashbacks.   Too funny!!

     

    This song fails... even at innuendo.

     

    Well, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
    You got a brand new key
    I think that we should get together
    And try them out you see

     

    Don't believe everything you think.

      Thanks to this thread, 'We Built This City' has been stuck in my head for days. 'Brand New Key' is a close second.

        One prime example of sound painting with kinda dumb lyrics is "Bike" by Pink Floyd.  Plus Barrett's grammar is horrible in it.  But it sounds cool so I don't care.

        'No matter how slow you go, you're still lapping everyone on the couch'

         

        "Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'"  - Peter Maher

         

        "Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run."  -Monte Davis


        Revenge of the Nerd

          Anything penned by Thin Lizzy.

           

           Do Anything You Want To

           

          While the video is cheesy, this upbeat rocker is trademark Thin Lizzy .  Phil Lynott had a penchant for creative wordplay and combined that with an expressive, half-sung, half-spoken delivery and fiery harmony guitars to create the band's unique style.  It 's a fantastic running song with a great message, too.

          One of these days is none of these days.

            You say God give me a choice
            You say Lord I say Christ
            I don't believe in Peter Pan
            Frankenstein or Superman
            All I wanna do is

            Bicycle bicycle bicycle
            I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
            I want to ride my bicycle
            I want to ride my bike

            You say smile I say cheese
            Cartier I say please
            Income tax I say Jesus

            I want to ride it where I like

            Looking for a reason to run...


            I've got a fever...

              I've said it before and I'll say it again: Syd Barrett sucked, and him frying his brain on acid is the best thing to ever happen to Pink Floyd.  Roger Waters' writing about Barrett's descent into madness fueled some of PF's best work (Dark Side, Wish You Were Here).  Had Barrett stayed sane and in the group (instead of being replaced by the great David Gilmour), Pink Floyd would be an obscure afterthought of the psychedelic era.

              On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
