Worst song lyrics

I took a trip with my friends this past weekend. We jammed to 80's music the whole way there and back- of course. During that trip I was reminded of the dumbest line in a song I think I've ever heard. It totally makes me laugh everytime I hear it. See if you recognize it. Here goes:

"I feel so dirty when they start talkin' cute. I wanna tell her that I love her, but the point is probably moot."

That got me thinkin'. What are some other dumb song lines?? Here are a few I came up with.
Comment with your own!!

"Oh no! That's just his charm. In his warm embrace? Oh no! That's just his arms." (It's In His Kiss - Betty Everett & Cher)

"I'm not a girl. Not yet a woman." (Britney Spears)

"I wanna sex you up." (Color Me Badd- what does that mean exactly??)

"All those nites you ran out with that other fella. Baby I knew about it. I just didn't care." (Monologue in End of the Road - Boys II Men)

It pains me to list this one, but it's gotta be done. "Everybody's always talkin' 'bout who's on top. Don't cross our path 'cause you're gonna get stomped!" (New Kids on the Block - Hangin' Tough) And another by NKOTB "Step one: We can have lots of fun. Step 2: There's so much we can do. Step 3: It's just you for me. Step 4: I can give you more. Step 5: Don't you know that the time has arrived?!" (Step by Step)

"...Just to be the next to be with you." That sounds gross. (Next to be with you - Mr. Big)

"Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm..." (Crash Test Dummies)

"Get out of my dreams. Get into my car!" (Billy Ocean)

"Ooh, what a feelin'. When we're dancin' on the ceilin'..." What??? (Lionel Richie)

"One pair of candy lips and your bubblegum tongue." (Your Body is a Wonderland - John Mayer)

"Someone left the cake out in the rain. I don't think that I can take it 'cause it took so long to bake it. And I'll never have that recipe again... " (MacArthur Park - Donna Summers)

And finally...

"You were there thru my incarceration. I wanna show the nation, my appreciation!" & from the same song "Closer than my peeps you are to me..." (Shaggy - Angel)


** The first lyric was from Jessie's Girl by Rick Springfield

You make me laugh! I don't think I've even heard half of those songs, let alone remember the lyrics to them.

Katie said...

Josh and I LOVE Jesse's Girl! How can you not love that one? And Mr. Big was awesome!

Have you seen the Snopes page about 867-5309? People called the number and drove the people who had them crazy.

"And there's a message that I'm sending out, like a telegraph to your soul/
And if I can't bridge this distance, stop this heartbreak overload." That's just silly. (It's from Missing You by John Waite.)

"I would do anything for love, but I won't do that" Ewwww.

Tori :) said...

I'm sorry Katie. Didn't mean to offend. ;) But "moot" is the funniest word!! I like Mr. Big too but it makes me think of a line of guys at a party leading to a drunk girl. Gross.
Abbie- True dat. I almost put Meatloaf on here. :)

Gina said...

Those are funny! How about, "my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard..." What in the heck, lady? Eww... but a good tune if you don't listen to the words that don't seem to make sense.

Most any song from the 80s could supply you a book’s worth and most of the rap songs from past or present.

There are too many horrible lyrics out there. I could pick many. But here are a few that came to mind:

“Mmmm Bop” by Hanson. The entire song. It sucks.

“Ha ha ha ha. You so crazy. I think I wanna have your baby.” "Whatta Man" by Salt N’ Pepa.

“If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends.” - That annoying song from the Spice Girls. Is it just me, or could this be taken many ways?

"Lucky that my breasts are small and humble so you don't confuse them with mountains." - "Whenever, Wherever" by Shakira. Yes, Isabel's "horse song." I'll give her the benefit of a doubt that this is a translation issue.

Tara said...

P.S. Where'd you go on your trip?
Alone or with babies?

Tori :) said...

Sister - I went to Mesquite, Nv with Shauna and Keri. No babies. Sei took them to Idaho to see Irena (and to make it easier on himself with 5 people all doting on Liv and Taj.) ;)

JC said...

"Tequila!". Oh, wait, that one's cool. Nevermind.

Gina said...

That is so awesome you got a weekend out with the girls! I hope you can do that again before the summer is up! What a priceless thing for a mommy! I don't think Ian would EVER take Liam on for more than a couple hours. Way to go, Sei!

Tori :) said...

JC- LOL!
Gina- Yeah, Sei rocks. But the way I see it, I went to Texas on a plane with a 2 year old and a 4 month old by myself. Stayed in Texas 10 days without their dad. My flights there and back had layovers in Denver...ugh. Sei can handle 48 hours- with the help of his sister and nieces. ;)

Gina said...

that is true... but not matter how I compare it, I still am no convincer for Ian to buck up.

Stephanie said...

Seriously, why do some songs get published.

This was a good one.

Robin said...

The worst song ever-Summertime girls- I think that's what it's called and I don't know who sings it- one hit wonder, if you can call it a hit.
" I like girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch. . .Chinese food makes me sick. And I think it's fly when girls stop by for the summa, for the summ-a...

Tori :) said...

Good one Robin!! LFO is the group.
"New Kids On The block,had a bunch of hits. Chinese food makes me sick. And I think it's fly when girls stop by for the summer,for the summer. I like girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch, I'd take her if I had one wish, But she's been gone since that summer... Since that summer"

"Stacey's mom has got it goin' on."

Um, EXCUSE ME??!!?

Stephanie said...

I have a little sister named Stacy. She programed that song to be my moms ring. You should have seen the look on my mom's face...tee,hee.

s--max said...

My name is Stacy & that song just oogs me out everytime I hear it. I say "someone's mom" instead. :-)
