It would make the others look too good.

The Killers have the worst lyrics of any new bands that have come out in the past couple of years in my opinion

But it gets stuck in my head ALL the time
Agreed! Easily some of the shittiest lyrics of all time. "I've got soul but I'm not a soldier" makes the aforementioned Electrical Storm line look not just good but great.

Though I'm surprised no-one's mentioned Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy by Big And Rich. Just the title is proof of my point.

Q: How heavy is the air?

A:

As heavy as a midsize passenger vehicle?

No, man. Think heavier.



Take a step back.

Put it into perspective.

Wrap your mind around it.

Heavy as a truck.

THAT'S REALLY FUCKING HEAVY.

I don't think any song will every surpass LFO's "Summer Girls" as having the worst lyrics of all time...

Yeah..I like it when the girls stop by...in the summer
Do you remember, do your remember, when we met that summer

~Chorus:~

New Kids on the Block had a bunch of hits
Chinese food makes me sick
And I think its 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...
Verse 1:


Hip Hop mama layed Spic and Span
Met you one summer and it all began
You're the best girl that I ever did see
The great Larry Bird jersey 33
When you take a sip you buzz like a hornet
Billy Shakespeare wrote a whole bunch of sonnets
Call me Willy Whistle cuz I can't speak baby
Somethin in your eyes went and drove me crazy
Now I can't forget you and it makes me mad
Left one day and never came back
Stayed all summer the went back home
Macaulay Culkin wasn't Home Alone
Fell deep in love, but now we ain't speakin
Michael J. Fox was Alex P. Keaton
When I met you I said my name was Rich
You look like a girl from Abercrombie and Fitch
~Chorus~


Verse 2:

Cherry, Pez, Cold Crush, Rock, Stud, Boogie
Used to hate school, so I had to play hookie
Always been hip to the b-boy style
Known to act wild and make a girl smile
Love New Edition and the Candy Girl
Reminds me of you because you rock my world
You come from Georgia where the peaches grow
They drink lemonade and speak real slow
You love Hip Hop and Rock &Roll
Dad took off when you where 4 years old
There was a good man named Paul Revere
I feel much better baby when you're near
You love Fun Dip and Cherry Coke
I like the way you laugh when I tell a joke
When I met you I said my name is Rich
You look like a girl from Abercrombie and Fitch
~Chorus~


Verse 3:

In the summertime girls got it goin on
Shake and wiggle to a Hip Hop song
Summertime girls are the kind I like
I'll steal your honey like I stole your bike
Boogaloo Shrimp and Pogo sticks
My mind takes me back there, oh so quick
Let you off the hook like my man, Mr. Limpit
Think about that summer, and I bug cuz I miss it
Like the color Purple, Macaroni and cheese
Ruby red slippers, and a bunch of trees
Call you up but what's the use
I like Kevin Bacon, but i hate Foot Loose
Came in the door, I said it before
I think I'm over you, but I'm really not sure
When I met you I said my name is Rich
You look like a girl from Abercrombie and Fitch
~Chorus~


Verse 4:

Summer girls come, and summer girls go
Some are worth while, and some are so so
Summer girls come, and summer girls go
Some are worth while, and some are so so
Summertime girls got it goin on
Shake and wiggle to a Hip Hop song
Summertime girls are the kind I like
I'll steal your honey, like I stole your bike
~Chorus~


oh...my...gawd

That song reminds me of the preppy kids I knew back in Iowa whom I went to school with in 9th grade. They wore Abercrombie and Fitch clothing constantly.

I didn't like them much.

Any boy band and prefabricated "artists" as Celine Dion, Britney, Christina, etc and their attemt at poetry or lyrics with "depth" must be among worst ever lyrics writen as well all those cliche rhyme lyrics "sung" by hip hop "artists"

Among best lyrics I´ve ever read are all those songs writen by Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, John Lennon (Plastic Ono Band mainly), Cat Stevens, Roger Waters, George Harrison (All Things Must Pass mainly), etc, etc, etc

I raise your LFO with my Backstreet Boys.

From 'Shape Of My Heart'

Sadness is beautiful,
Loneliness is tragical
So heal me,
I can't win this war,
Touch me now,
Don't bother,
If every second it makes me weaker,
You can save me from the man I've become

Um.. what?

Okay. We have this song on a cd at work. I am obliged to listen to this ungodly crap all the time, and it drives me nuts. You shall now share my pain.

Page Martin - Monkey In My Dreams

There's a monkey in my dreams
Clinging like a thief
Forcing my eyes open
Wrestling in my sheets

I'm living on my own now
Without you on my back
But still you keep on calling
No disappearing act


Chorus
You used to be so good at that
You used to be so good at games
Now you go 'round and around
Exiting the way you came

Just a monkey in my dreams
That's what you are
A loose valve of escaping steam
That's what you are
A motor running in an empty car
That's what you are
And I won't stoop to the obscene
You're a monkey
Just a monkey
You're a monkey in my dreams
Gonna shake that monkey right outta my bed
Gonna shake that monkey right outta my head
/chorus

I'm losing eight good hours
With this hollow ghost of you
Screeching in my sleep tank
Sleeping in my shoes

-Chorus-

Time to shake the monkey outta my bed
Time to shake the monkey outta my head

I can't reason on the phone
I won't talk to your machine
No doctor would prescribe you
No doctor is that mean

-chorus-

-chorus-


... Be sure to read the chorus a few times to get the full effect.

*shudders*

Why are people this bad allowed to make music???

The expealadocious line from Holy Joe had to be one ridiculous line.
"Clickity clank, the money goes into my piggy bank." Piggy Bank by 50 cent. Why do rappers have to write songs about being rich as hell?
My vote:
Tubthumping
by Chumbawumba

We'll be singing
When we're winning we'll be singing
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
Pissing the night away
Pissing the night away
He drinks a whisky drink
He drinks a vodka drink
He drinks a lager drink
He drinks a cider drink
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the good times
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the better times
Oh Danny Boy
Danny Boy
Danny Boy
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
Pissing the night away
Pissing the night away
He drinks a whisky drink
He drinks a vodka drink
He drinks a lager drink
He drinks a cider drink
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the good times
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the better times
Don't cry for me
Next door neighbour
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again (we'll be singing)
You're never going to keep me down (when we're winning)
I get knocked down
But I get up again (we'll be singing)
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again (we'll be singing)
You're never going to keep me down (when we're winning)
I get knocked down
But I get up again (we'll be singing)
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again (pissing the night away)
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again (pissing the night away)
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again (pissing the night away)
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down

You're never going to keep me down

But I get up again (pissing the night away)
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again (pissing the night away)
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again (pissing the night away)
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again (pissing the night away)
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again (pissing the night away)
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down

You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again (pissing the night away)
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again (pissing the night away)
You're never going to keep me down

Chumbawumba was charming... Okay, charming isn't the word... Novel, I suppose. Never since traditional folk songs (okay, and Dropkick Murphys) has a song about getting shitfaced touched us all in such a nice, naughty way.
