I was listening to that Katy Melua rubbish blush Closest Thing to Crazy today on the radio, and it just hit me... wtf is she on about...

"Feeling 22.... acting 17!"

So. She's feeling five years older than she's acting? Is that right?

It's not that blardy crazy love though, is it?

Don't worry. Everyone's still pondering aye aye moosey.

The "Ironic" song by Alanis Morrisette use to bother me. Most of the situations weren't ironic really, just bad luck (eg raiiiiaiiiin on your wedding day).

PuppyMonkey Sat 30-Aug-08 19:48:54

Yes. good advice that you just didn't take. That's not ironic, that's just stupidity...

einstein a go-go

actually, ANYTHING by Katie melua is guaranteed to have rubbish lyrics.

There was a fab thread months ago parodying her song that goes on about her being a boat, - can't remember it at the mo, but the lyrics are hilarious- and she is a fruit loop!

"10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife?" That's just sod's law/annoying.

PuppyMonkey Sat 30-Aug-08 19:51:56

Nine million bicycles in beijing.... That's a FACT.hmm

found it!grin read and weep....

Lyrics to If You Were A Sailboat :
If you’re a cowboy I would trail you,
If you’re a piece of wood I’d nail you to the floor.
If you’re a sailboat I would sail you to the shore.
If you’re a river I would swim you,
If you’re a house I would live in you all my days.
If you’re a preacher I’d begin to change my ways.

Sometimes I believe in fate,
But the chances we create,
Always seem to ring more true.
You took a chance on loving me,
I took a chance on loving you.

If I was in jail I know you’d spring me
If I was a telephone you’d ring me all day long
If was in pain I know you’d sing me soothing songs.

Sometimes I believe in fate,
But the chances we create,
Always seem to ring more true.
You took a chance on loving me,
I took a chance on loving you.

If I was hungry you would feed me
If I was in darkness you would lead me to the light
If I was a book I know you’d read me every night

If you’re a cowboy I would trail you,
If you’re a piece of wood I’d nail you to the floor.
If you’re a sailboat I would sail you to the shore.
If you’re a sailboat I would sail you to the shore

That Desiree song cracks me up - hope I don't see a ghost, rather have a piece of toast etc etc ad nauseum

Raahh Sat 30-Aug-08 20:04:26

think the Desiree one was recently voted one of the daftest ever lyrics, along with

' glad my breasts are small and humble, so you don't confuse them with mountains'- Shakira , Whenever, whereever ' (which i think lost something in translation , lol!

All of 'Come Together' by the Beetles hmm

Here come old flattop, he come grooving up slowly
He got joo-joo eyeball, he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker he just do what he please

He wear no shoeshine, he got toe-jam football
He got monkey finger, he shoot coca-cola
He say "I know you, you know me"
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Come together right now over me

He bag production, he got walrus gumboot
He got Ono sideboard, he one spinal cracker
He got feet down below his knee
Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease
Come together right now over me

[Right!
Come, oh, come, come, come.]

He roller-coaster, he got early warning
He got muddy water, he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking cos he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me

Great song to listen too - but very strange lyrics imo
