In a conversation with friends about stupid song lyrics, these were mentioned: Des'ree : "Ooh, I get the shivers / I don't want to see a ghost / It's a sight that I fear most / I'd rather have a piece of toast." Beatles, Don’t Pass Me By: "I'm sorry that I doubted you / I was so unfair/ You were in a car crash / and you lost your hair." LFO, Summer Girls: "Fell deep in love, but now we ain't speakin'/ Michael J. Fox was Alex P. Keaton. ". . .and "New Kids On The Block had a bunch of hits / Chinese food makes me sick." Have you got any to add?
Frank Zappa once crooned that "The crux of the biscuit is the apostrophe" . As profound today as it ever was.......
One less egg to fry One less man to pick up after I should be happy But all I do is cry Happy weekend, PJ

I have a quote of REM's Man on the Moon for a couple of months as my motto, but the lyrics of that song are puzzling to me: Moses went walking with the staff of wood Newton got beaned by the apple good Egypt was troubled by the horrible asp Mister Charles Darwin had the gall to ask ... but it's a nice song to listen to. PJ

MacArthur’s Park is melting in the dark All the sweet, green icing flowing down 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 Oh, no!

These are making me giggle! I have a secret liking for Hanson's Mmm Bop, just because it's so cheerful, but the words are pretty dumb: Plant a seed, plant a flower, plant a rose You can plant any one of those Keep planting to find out which one grows It's a secret no one knows Mmm bop, ba duba dop Ba du bop, ba duba dop Ba du bop, ba duba dop Ba du
The entirety of "I am the Walrus" should probably be included.
Crabalocker fishwife, pornagraphic priestess Genius!
A strolling violinist at a restaurant once played "Yesterday" at John Lennon and Yoko Ono's table. Yoko remarked afterwards, "But that's Paul's song. Why didn't he play one of yours?" John said, "Most people don't want to be serenaded with 'I Am the Walrus.'"
Just heard good old Frank Sinatra singing his Strangers In The Night: ...Dooby-doooby-doo and other scat to end, haha. And be aware it took 4 song writers for this lyric! PJ
a song from Pupo: Gelato al cioccolato E' dolce ma un po' salato Tu gelato al cioccolato Un bacio al cioccolato io te l'ho rubato Tu gelato al cioccolato
PJ, they each contributed a different "dooby dooby doo." You can tell it's getting close to dinnertime, when my first reaction to the chocolate lyrics is "Mmmm, gelato al cioccolato!" Another one - the Carpenters, "Close to You": Why do birds suddenly appear Every time you are near? Just like me They long to be Close to you. As humor writer Dave Barry said, "Do I really want to be near somebody who causes birds to appear suddenly? Didn't Alfred Hitchcock do a horror movie about this?"
Much of the European Song contest songs are overloaded with la, la, la's. Also pop hitwonders have great lines; do you now from what hit song contains the following: Pop pop shoo wop Eenee meenie Shoobie doobie do wop PJ

Queen - One Vision: Gimme one light, yeah Gimme one hope, hey Just gimme, ah One man one man One bar one night One day hey hey Just gimme gimme gimme gimme Fried chicken!!
When you're in a club, it's the beat that counts, not the price of fish. (Hey, I think I just wrote a song.)
Haha guys.... this is such a funny thread :o) Anyone remember The Clapping Song by Shirley Ellis? It has such a funky beat but the words.... My mama told me if I was goody that she would buy me a rubber dolly My aunty told her I kissed a soldier Now she won't buy me a rubber dolly
