Some songs are great, some are bad.

And others would be passable if they just had lyrics that weren't crap.

Regardless, I have to say, Madonna's I love New York has to have some of the dumbest lyrics of any established musician I have ever heard.

Madonna wrote:
I don't like cities, but I like New York
Other places make me feel like a dork
Los Angeles is for people who sleep
Paris and London, baby you can keep

Baby you can keep (repeat 8x)

[Chorus:]
Other cities always make me mad
Other places always make me sad
No other city ever made me glad
Except New York
I love New York
I love New York
I love New York

If you don't like my attitude, then you can Eff-off
Just go to Texas, isn't that where they golf?
New York is not for little wussies who scream
If you can't stand the heat, then get off my street


Can anyone beat that?

From the South Side to the Valley

Ahh! Ahh! Ahh! Ahhhh!

We were at a party
His ear lobe fell in the deep
Someone reached in and grabbed it
It was a rock lobster

We were at the beach
Everybody had matching towels
Somebody went under a dock
And there they saw a rock
It wasn't a rock
It was a rock lobster

Motion in the ocean
His air hose broke
Lots of trouble
Lots of bubble
He was in a jam
S'in a giant clam

Down, down

Underneath the waves
Mermaids wavin'
Wavin' to mermen
Wavin' sea fans
Sea horses sailin'
Dolphins wailin'

Red snappers snappin'
Clam shells clappin'
Muscles flexin'
Flippers flippin'

Down, down

Let's rock!

Boy's in bikinis
Girls in surfboards
Everybody's rockin'
Everybody's fruggin'

Twistin' 'round the fire
Havin' fun
Bakin' potatoes
Bakin' in the sun

Put on your noseguard
Put on the lifeguard
Pass the tanning butter

Here comes a stingray
There goes a manta-ray
In walked a jelly fish
There goes a dogfish
Chased by a catfish
In flew a sea robin
Watch out for that piranha
There goes a narwhale
HERE COMES A BIKINI WHALE!


the worst lyrics and worst song EVER! I WIN! There have been some bad 80's tunes but this one takes it all!

"Somebody went under a dock
And there they saw a rock

That's classic, right there. I don't understand why I don't hear it more on the radio.

i like the neil diamond "not even the chair" line.

OOOOH AND MACARTHUR PARK. it's stupid but i love that song, for its sheer goofiness.

"...I left my cake out in the rain/and it took so long to bake it/and I don't know how to make it/and I'll never have that recipe AGAIN/ oh NOES!"

don't those lyrics just make you unreasonably happy?

damm... I know one, but it's in portuguese...
I'm gonna post a translated version:

I bought one kilo of flour
to make farofa
to make farofa
to make farofa fa

I bought a pig foot (faró fa fa)
And a pig ear (faró fa fa)
I put all this in the fire (faró fa fa)
And I mixed it right (faró fa fa)
With the hunger of a wolf (faró fa fa)
I paved my chest (faró fa fa)

Fa
Faró Faró Faró
Faró Faró Faró
Faró Faró Faró Fa Fa

Cassava flour (faró fa fa)
And pepper (faró fa fa)
I like farofa (faró fa fa)
I ate, I do not make bad faces (faró fa fa)
But I am strong as a bull (faró fa fa)
Of the intelligent head (faró fa fa)
I do not chew brick (faró fa fa)
only because it ruins my teeth (faró fa fa)

Fa
Faró Faró Faró
Faró Faró Faró
Faró Faró Faró Fa Fa


it has some spelling and grammar errors, but it also have them in portuguese, so I left them..

p.s.: "farofa" is a dish made with flour, and random stuff... usually used with some meat or anything like that... I would translate it but I don't know the word in english for it (neither does babel fish...)

this is farofa:

He was killed by a cellular phone explosion
They scattered his ashes across the ocean
The water was used to make baby lotion
The wheels of promotion were set into motion

But the sun still shines in the summer time
I'll be yours if you'll be mine
I tried to change, but I changed my mind
Think I'll have another glass of Mexican wine

She lived alone in a small apartment
Across the street from the health department
She left her pills in the glove compartment
That was the afternoon her heart went

And the sun still shines in the summer time
I'll be yours if you'll be mine
I tried to change, but I changed my mind
Think I'll have another glass of Mexican wine
Think I'll have another glass of Mexican wine

I used to fly for United Airlines
Then I got fired for reading High Times
My license expired in alomst no time
Now I'm retired and I think that's fine

Because the sun still shines in the summer time
I'll be yours if you'll be mine
I tried to change, but I changed my mind
Think I'll have another glass of Mexican wine
Think I'll have another glass of Mexican wine
Won't you have another glass of Mexican wine?


Worse, it's got a tune that just sticks in the head. Help me... Shocked

I want to go tripping in my canary yellow canoe
The eastmain, coppermine, back river too
In my canary yellow canoe
In my canary yellow canoe - yellow canoe
I want to run rivers in my canary yellow canoe
The desmoines river, rupert river, george river too
In my canary yellow canoe

In my canary yellow canoe - mellow yellow canoe
I want to go tripping in my canary yellow canoe
Chebugema, peace river, resolute too
In my canary yellow canoe

In my canary yellow canoe - my elephant too
I want to go tripping in my canary yellow canoe
Churchill, yellowknife, ross river too
In my canary yellow canoe


It's like an even cornier version of Yellow Submarine or something!

ok, so it's not quite the same thing - but does anyone else keep hearing that fruit of the loom song as "you can't overload your underwear"?

One of my all time favorite songs, but the lyrics don't make much sense.

Beck wrote:
In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey
butane in my veins so i'm out to cut the junkie
with the plastic eyeballs
spray paint the vegetables
dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
kill the headlights and put it in neutral
stock car flamin' with a loser and the cruise control
baby's in Reno with the vitamin D
got a couple of couches sleep on the love seat
someone keeps sayin' I'm insane to complain about
a shotgun wedding and a stain on my shirt
don't believe everything that you breathe
you get a parking violation and a maggot on your sleeve
so shave your face with some mace in the dark
savin' all your food stamps and burnin' down the trailer park


It doesn't get much better than that.
