    A few classic bad lyrics:

    "War, war is stupid and people are stupid..."

    The War Song - Culture Club


    "Can't complain, mustn't grumble, help yourself to another piece of apple crumble..."

    That Was Then This Is Now - ABC


    "Flickering embers go higher and higher...."

    Mull of Kintyre - Wings (surely embers burn down, not up?)


    "There were plants and birds and rocks and things...."
    "The heat was hot...."
    "In the desert you can remember your name cos there ain't no-one for to give you no pain..."

    Horse With No Name - America


    "If I go there will be trouble, if I stay it will be double...."

    Should I Stay Or Should I Go - The Clash (go then, you've just answered your own question!)


    "Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak somewhere in this town....."

    Jailbreak - Thin Lizzy (presumably this jailbreak will be at the jail, rather than the library or the swimming baths!)

    This is the potential breakup song
    Our album needs just one

    ('Aly & AJ')

    At least they're honest at it ...

    Blue - All Rise. Corny as hell

    One for the money and the free rides
    It's two for the lies that you denied
    All rise
    All rise (all rise)
    Three for the calls you've been making
    It's four for the times you've been faking
    All rise (I'm gonna tell it to your face)
    All rise (I rest my case)

    Truly dreadful lyrics.
    The writers should be shot for ghetto betrayal

    There's plenty of bad lyrics in the world, but nothing comes close to the mess that is "Jojo Action" by Mr. President. Like... what the hell were they smoking? Painful, just painful.

    His name is Jojo
    He's s*** talking - hip hip hip
    And Jojo go-go
    He's funky walking - tip tip tip
    He's sweet as honey can be
    A coconut tree
    I feel lazy crazy

    When Jojo's acting
    Selecting he says - you you you
    He takes you dancing
    Romancing makes you
    Blue blue blue
    He's like a bird on a tree
    A sweet harmony
    I feel lazy crazy

    Jojo Action - satisfaction
    Candy apple tree
    Jojo Action - satisfaction
    Jojo honey bee
    Listen Jojo Action
    Gimme satisfaction
    Jojo c'est la vie
    Listen Jojo Action
    Gimme me satisfaction
    Jojo come with me


    When Jojo' s smoking
    He's joking kind of - tip tip tip
    Gives you illusion
    Confusion very - hip hip hip
    He makes you fire and ice
    And Jojo's so nice
    I feel lazy crazy

    Hey Jojo, you are down at the disco
    Turn up your collar
    And you're ready to go-go
    Hip hip hip, let's do it
    Tip tip tip, come on
    You're the man
    The center of attraction
    That's why they call you Jojo Action
    Hip hip hip, everybody, tip tip tip
    Come on!

    Off the top of my head:

    Best - "If you know me so well then tell me which hand I use" Tori Amos, "Yes Anastasia"

    Worst - "My swag is serious something heavy like a first-day period" Janet Jackson "Feedback"

    Conan Osiris' "Telemoveis" has one of the strangest and trippiest lyrics of 2019
    Eu parti o telemóvel
    A tentar ligar para o céu

    I have broken the cellphone
    Trying to call heaven

    Imagine, the girls around town assemble
    The traveler's son they come asking
    Where he came from 'cause they've watched him
    Washing his face near the pond
    A curious boy and they wonder
    Where he came from.

    He says:
    'I, I have seen the world's most beautiful places
    Still I feel
    As if I'm a walking machine
    Watching it all through a screen
    There ain't no thing in between
    To me, this might as well not be real.'

    Imagine, the girls take him up on a hill
    It's an indigo night, there's a chill
    The boy's confused but he's still
    As they gather around him
    So many of them they all sing
    'Bout the pleasures of life.

    And he cries:
    'Why can't I sing along with some feeling
    Or some meaning
    It feels like I've always been blind
    I don't know why you girls are so kind
    For there are so many in line
    Who's lives aren't as lost as mine.'

    Now something happened there
    The smell of the grass
    Maybe the air
    There was no more dispair
    Just something about that night
    Maybe the girls lit it some light
    And did everything right
    'Cause he's never been more alive.


    - Tamino - Indigo Night -

    What a beautiful and relieving message the song has - especially when you're experiencing a current down... It's the simplicity of life that manages to lift you up again .

    Sue Wilkinson - You've Got To Be A Hustler If You Want To Get On
    I remember Sally from number four
    She always had boys queueing up at her door
    She wasn't so good looking, but she seemed to have such fun
    While I had none, I asked my Mum, "How come?"
    Mother said Sally was loose and cheap
    And girls like that ended up on the street
    Not like me, I was good, you see

    Now I saw Sally in the deli today
    She's a lady now in every way
    So darn rich, people tell me she's a witch
    With lovers by the score, do I have to tell you more


    Oh, you've got to be a hustler if you want to get on
    Principles can only hold you back
    The only women makin' it are women who are shakin' it
    They're faking all their morals on the mat
    It's an act, it's a fact
    You've got to be a hustler if you want to make a name
    Bein' good can only get you hurt
    Chastity and virtue never brought a woman fame
    And men will always crave a cunning flirt

    When you read the newspapers every day
    There's always some hussy that's having her way
    By dating someone famous, she makes herself a name
    And no one blames her, I guess we'd all do the same

    But then they get married and before you know
    She wants divorce and half of his dough
    Gets herself a lawyer who's a really shrewd guy
    And get's the judge's sympathy by crying and crying

    Yes, you've got to be a hustler if you want to get on
    Principles can only hold you back
    The only women makin' it are women who are shakin' it
    They're faking all their morals on the mat
    It's an act, it's a fact
    You've got to be a hustler if you want to make a name
    Bein' good can only get you hurt
    Chastity and virtue never brought a woman fame
    And men will always crave a cunning flirt

    Well, the next time it happens as she starts to write
    Of her schemes through the days and her men through the nights
    And even though it's tasteless, the book sells coast to coast
    On all the chat shows, you can see her boast

    And now they're makin' a film of the book
    And no one gives a damn that the girl was a "Huh"
    They've got posters obscene, now she's mixin with the cream
    No one even cares what she's done or where she's been

    Ooh, you've got to be a hustler if you want to get on
    Principles can only hold you back
    The only women makin' it are women who are shakin' it
    They're faking all their morals on the mat
    It's an act, it's a fact
    You've got to be a hustler if you want to make a name
    Bein' good can only get you hurt
    Chastity and virtue never brought a woman fame
    And men will always crave a cunning flirt

    Yes, you've got to be a hustler if you want to get on

    'She's indecisive... she can't decide'.



    That's the only lyric from a Justin Bieber song I know. It always stuck.

    (I got you stuck off the realness)
    (I got you stuck off the realness)

    It wasn't raining yet
    But it was definitely a little misty on
    That warm November night
    And my heart was pounding
    My inner voice resounding
    Begging me to turn away
    But I just had to see your face
    To feel alive
    And then you casually walked in the room
    And I was twisted in the web
    Of my desire for you
    (And I was twisted)
    My apprehension blew away
    I only wanted you
    To taste my sadness
    As you kissed me in the dark

    [Chorus:]
    Every time I feel the need
    I envision you caressing me
    And go back in time
    To relive the splendor of you and I
    On the rooftop that rainy night

    And so we finished the Moet
    And started feeling liberated
    And I surrendered as you took me
    In your arms
    (You took me in your arms)
    I was so caught up in the moment
    I couldn't bear to let you go yet
    So I threw caution to the wind
    And started listening to my longing heart
    And then you softly pressed your lips to mine
    And feelings surfaced I'd suppressed
    For such a long long time
    (And I was lifted)
    And for a while I forgot
    The sorrow and the pain
    And melted with you as we stood
    There in the rain

    Last night I dreamed that I
    Whispered the words I love you
    And touched you so very
    Subtly as we were kissing goodbye
    (Pretty baby - How I'm missing you)
    Best lyrics ever!
