'Lucky my breast are small and humble, so you don't confuse them with mountains'

What were they smoking when they wrote that one?smile

Anyone got anything worse?

I'm as serious as cancer when I say rhythm is a dancer

Just awful

Pretty much the whole of that Johnny Lydon/Public Image song 'Rise', the whole song makes no sense, yet it is one of the small handful that seems to get played a few times a day on BBC6. I always here it and wonder what the hell it means and why are they playing it YET AGAIN?

Amibambini Thu 10-Oct-13 16:46:58

'Hear', typo sorry.

I don't want to see a ghost, it's the thing I'd fear the most, rather have a piece of toast.

A classic.

Tinie Tempah : Pass Out

"I have so many clothes I keep some at my Aunt's house"

Twat

Ha ha, we always sing 'I don't want to see a ghost' to ds (5). He thinks we're bonkers.

Abba, so many, many examples.

"I figured it made sense, building me a fence"

And.....

"I cross the stream, I have a dream"

Wonderful smile

I assumed Tinie Tempah is taking the piss pretty thoroughly in Pass Out - the point is how petty his success is - he's never been to Scunthorpe etc.

As I used to be a goth, I wouldn't even know where to begin with ridiculous lyrics...

'you say it best when you say nothing at all' You're right Mr Keating, why don't you try it.

It's like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife.

That's not irony, Alanis, it's a fuck-up at the cutlery factory.

"This is the closest thing to crazy I have ever been/Feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen"

Not very crazy at all then.

"cause my swag is serious, something heavy like a first day period."

janet Jackson, feedback.

that's the worst I ever heard!!

IWishYouWould Thu 10-Oct-13 22:33:17

Binky your comment made me laugh. I agree it would be best.

Spongebob I think you may have the prize with yours!

ItsTheOnlyWayToLive Thu 10-Oct-13 22:55:08

Binky - I sing that WITH MEANING every time Ihear that song.

Awful song, awful singer . Bleugh..

The most chilling lyrics are those of My name is Luca - Suzanne Vega

All about domestic abuse.

Here's a sample:

They only hit until you cry
And after that you don't ask why
You just don't argue anymore

Most recent stupid lyric I've heard is: " I remember well the day that I got my first tattoo: I was so scared before and after I was so proud when it was new. " Of course it's new, you just got it done!

Most pointless is "She's so lovely" repeated ten gazillion times in an attempt to pass it off as a song (Scouting for Girls)

I've got soul, but I'm not a soldier.

WHY?!

Put the message in a box,put the box into the car,drive the car around the world....or something like that...
Brian Kennedy I think.

"Where are my keys? I lost my phone."

Oh.

Gileswithachainsaw Thu 10-Oct-13 23:22:01

Please could you stop that noise I'm trying to get some rest,
From all the unborn chicken voices in my head.

Karma police, arrest this man
He talks in math , he buzzes like a fridge
He's like a de tuned radio

Radio head are the kings of weird pointless lyrics grin

Even Duran Duran don't know what the crap it's supposed to be about.
