Cowboy Troy - I Play Chicken With the Train

I may be biased because my 2 year-old sister seems to love this song.

While we're bashing Oasis' Standing on the Shoulder of Giants, what about "I Can See a Liar" or "Put Yer Money Where Yer Mouth Is"

Believe it or not, the lyrics were on display at the Rock Hall of Fame four years ago (when it came out). Unreal.

U2 does not belong in this thread, I tell you!!!

Case in point...R Kelly's "You Remind Me of Something"

You remind me of my jeep (I wanna ride it)
Somethin’ like my sound (I wanna pump it, baby)
Girl, you look just like my cars (I wanna wax it)
And somethin’ like my bank account (I wanna spend it, baby)

It’s somethin’ about your love that’s got me goin’ crazy
(Baby, you know I want you real bad)
And girl, I really like your freaky style, oh, babe
(How can I be down with you)


It's a good thing he says 'baby' and 'girl' about 50 times in this song, otherwise I would have no idea what he's talking about.

What if U2 had written songs like "Pickin' Boogers" by Biz Markie? Do people really think ABOY/Elevation lyrics are that bad? Get real.

I actually own that album. The lyrics to that song are so ridiculous that they're almost clever.

John Meyer - Your Body is a Wonderland. What I hate about it is it's supposed to be this sexy song but the lyrics are so gag-inducing that it almost makes me want to take a vow of celibacy.

Based on their lyrical output prior, the lyrics of Elevation, Peace on Earth, Grace, and just about the whole of HTDAAB deserve an "honorable mention" in disgraceful lyrics. Are you trying to tell me it took the guys who wrote ACHTUNG, BABY! *FOUR* years to come up with a song like ABOY??? And that's the SINGLE, ouch!!!!

How bout Will Smith's "Gettin' Jiggy with it." Not only does it have a great title but also contains the following gem....

She gotta/Prada/Bag with a lotta/Stuff in it

Why stop there? We might as well add some of the other songs that have been bashed heavily here at Interference:

Playboy Mansion
Elvis Presley and America
Trip Through Your Wires
Some Days are Better Than Others
Wild Honey

It looks like U2 are responsible for some of the most appalling lyrics ever written. They are leading Oasis for the most nominations, with Madonna in 3rd place.

I thought the topic here was Worst Lyrics Ever. If we're talking about the decline in quality of a song writer's output, then Bob Dylan would be a prime candidate.
