Some I hate:<br><br>"If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now, it's just a spring clean for the may queen"<br><br>"Stuck inside these four walls, sent inside forever, never seeing noone" - that's a double negative Paul. That means you do see people.<br><br>"Yummy Yummy Yummy I got love in my tummy"<br><br>Any of Muskrat Love<br><br><br><br>

I like Black Sabbath a lot, but...

"Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all,
Or if he moves will he fall?"

always struck me as really uninspired lyrics, written with the rhyming dictionary in hand. Also hilarious is how Ozzy struggles to make one line fit in four bars.. "Orifhe mooohoooves..."

Hahahaaha, I like Black Sabbath too, but this one always cracks me up. It is so bad as lyrics go....

"Make a joke and I will sigh
And you will laugh and I will cry..."

LMFAO. :D

Is it bad to you because you've heard it a billion times, or was it bad the first time. I can't tell anymore.

He probably hears voices too.

Now that is bad, no question, even once.

Another mental abherration brought on by the inability to delete one's own posts and a slip of the mouse confusing quote with edit. No, I'm not on anything, have you never made a mistake before?

BTW, I forgot to mention, that was hilarious Flatulus.

You Spin Me Around (Like A Record) by Dead Or Alive

Yeah I, I got to know your name
Well and I, could trace your private number baby
All I know is that to me
You look like you're lots of fun
Open up your lovin' arms
I want some

Well I...I set my sights on you
(and no one else will do)
And I, I've got to have my way now, baby
(and no one else will do)
And I, I've got to have my way now, baby
All I know is that to me
You look like you're havin' fun
Open up your lovin' arms
Watch out, here I come

*You spin me right round, baby
right round like a record, baby
Right round round round
You spin me right round, baby
Right round like a record, baby
Right round round round

I, I got be your friend now, baby
And I would like to move in
Just a little bit closer
(little bit closer)

**All I know is that to me
You look like you're lots of fun
Open up your lovin' arms
Watch out, here I come

[*Repeat]

I want your looooooooooooooove
I want your looooooooooooooove
[**Repeat]

[*Repeat and fade with ad lib]




Mr. Roboto by Styx

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto,
Mata ah-oo hima de
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto,
Himitsu wo shiri tai

You're wondering who I am-machine or mannequin
With parts made in Japan, I am the modren man

I've got a secret I've been hiding under my skin
My heart is human, my blood is boiling, my brain I.B.M.
So if you see me acting strangely, don't be surprised
I'm just a man who needed someone, and somewhere to hide
To keep me alive-just keep me alive
Somewhere to hide to keep me alive

I'm not a robot without emotions-I'm not what you see
I've come to help you with your problems, so we can be free
I'm not a hero, I'm not a saviour, forget what you know
I'm just a man whose circumstances went beyond his control
Beyond my control-we all need control
I need control-we all need control

I am the modren man, who hides behind a mask
So no one else can see my true identity

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto, domo...domo
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto, domo...domo
Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto, domo...domo
Thank you very much, Mr. Roboto
For doing the jobs that nobody wants to
And thank you very much, Mr. Roboto
For helping me escape just when I needed to
Thank you-thank you, thank you
I want to thank you, please, thank you

The problem's plain to see: too much technology
Machines to save our lives. Machines dehumanize.

The time has come aat last
To throw away this mask
So everyone caan see
My true identity...
I'm Kilroy! Kilroy! Kilroy! Kilroy!

Spring was never waiting for us, girl
It ran one step ahead
As we followed in the dance
Between the parted pages and were pressed,
In love's hot, fevered iron
Like a striped pair of pants

CHORUS
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!

I recall the yellow cotton dress
Foaming like a wave
On the ground around your knees
The birds, like tender babies in your hands
And the old men playing checkers by the trees

CHORUS

<relatively brief instrumental interlude>

There will be another song for me
For I will sing it
There will be another dream for me
Someone will bring it
I will drink the wine while it is warm
And never let you catch me looking at the sun
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
You'll still be the one.

I will take my life into my hands and I will use it
I will win the worship in their eyes and I will lose it
I will have the things that I desire
And my passion flow like rivers through the sky.
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
I'll be thinking of you
And wondering why.

<extended (1:24) up-tempo instrumental interlude that rivals anything done by
Chicago or even "Classical Gas" by Mason Williams>

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!
Oh, no
No, no
Oh NO!! (upon which Harris suffers an irreversible gender change)

Not only does this song suck donkey balls, but the worst part is that Barry Manilow didn't even write it himself. Think it was written by one of the Beach Boys...

When you wore a turnip, a big yellow turnip, and I wore a big red nose.
When you caressed me,
'twas then Heaven blessed me, what a blessing no one knows.

You made life cheery when you called me dearie,
'twas down where the Snodgrass grows,
your lips were sweeter than julep,
when you wore a turnip, and I wore a big red nose.

Yes, this has to be the worst song ever! And who ever gave Richard Harris the notion that he could sing? Who inflicted this upon us?

Oh for shame Jimmy Webb. Oh for shame, Richard Harris.

One for the books:

Opus - Live Is Life:

Nanananana
Nanananana (all together now)
Nanananana
Nanananana

Life (nanananana)
Life is life (nanananana)
Labadab dab dab life (nanananana)
Liiiiiiiife (nanananana)

When we all give the power
We all give the best
Every minute of an hour
Don't think about the rest
And you all get the power
You all get the best
When everyone gets everything
And every song everybody sings

Life is life (nanananana)
Life is life (nanananana)
Life is life (nanananana)
Labadab dab dab life (nanananana)

Life is life, when we all feel the power
Life is life, come on stand up and dance
Life is life, when the feelings of the people
Life is life, is the feeling of the band

When we all give the power
We all give the best
Every minute of an hour
Don't think about the rest
Then you all get the power
You all get the best
When everyone gives everything
And every song everybody sings

Life is life (nanananana)
Life is life (nanananana)
Labadab dab dab life (nanananana)
Life is life (nanananana)

Life
(nanananana)
(nanananana)
(nanananana)

Life is life (nanananana)
Life is life (nanananana)
Labadab dab dab life (nanananana)
Life is life (nanananana)

And you call when it's over
You call it should last
Every minute of the future
is a memory of the past
Cause we all gave the power
We all gave the best
And everyone Gave everything
And every song everybody sang

Life is life

Scatman John - Scatman:

I'm the scatman

Ski bi di bi di do bap do bap
Do ba do bap

Everybody stutters one day or the other
So check out my message to you
As a matter of fact
Don't let nothing hold you back
If the scatman can do it
So can you

Everybody says that the scatman stutters
But doesn't ever stutters when he sings
But what you don't know
I'm gonna tell you right now
That the stutter and the scat is the same thing
Yo, I'm the scatman
Yeah the scatman, I'm the scatman

Why should we be pleasin in all the politician heathens who would
Try to change the seasons if they could
The state of the condition
Insults my institutions
And it only makes me crazy and my heart like wood

Everybody stutters one day or the other
So check out my message to you
As a matter of fact
Don't let nothing hold you back
If the scatman can do it
So can you

Everybody stutters one day or the other
So check out my message to you
As a matter of fact
Don't let nothing hold you back
If the scatman can do it
So can you

I hear you ask all about the meaning of scat
Well I am the professor and all I can tell you
Is while you're still sleeping
Saints are still weeping
Cause things you call dead haven't yet the chance to be born
I'm the scatman.

Repeat after me
It's a scoobie oobie doobie scoobie doobie melody
Sing along with me
It's a scoobie oobie doobie scoobie doobie melody

LOL

This OPUS song is really stupid. The music is so bad, the lyrics are even worse and the group is absolutely gaga.

In the 80's I had to live with neighbours who tortured me with that song. All other neighbours had to listen to another stupid song named VAMOS A LA PLAYA.

When I met these neighbours on the stairs I always wondered how they managed to go upright.
