Worst lyrics EVER

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The other day I was driving up the M1 when Mrs. Vegetius (for some unknown reason) put a Meatloaf CD on the car stereo. Now, as a rule, I'll admit to occasionally enjoying the cheesy opera-rock warblings of the chubby Canadian popster. In a sort of ironic way, of course, as well as making the obvious jokes about what exactly he wouldn't do for love. Mrs. Veg reckons it's ****, I think it's all about not being prepared to go on a diet, it's a Mars & Venus kinda thing I suppose.

    Anyhow, I was singing along to the bits I could remember from "Two outta Three Ain't Bad" (where we have to suspend our disbelief and imagine a scenario whereby a hot rock chick is begging an eighteen-stone man in tight leather trousers and a baggy silk shirt from leaving her) when the following lyric pops up:

    There ain't no Coup de Ville hiding in the bottom of a crackerjack box


    I know that a CdV is a big American car, ergo I know that you couldn't fit one in a small box. So, can any Meat-afficianados help here, or even better please submit a worse popular music lyric?


  2. Steve Miller- The Joker, a line that includes " the pompetance of love"???? 8O
  3. Wings: 'In this ever changing world in which we live in...'

    Moonlight shadow; 4 am in the morning...

    Tautology. Really does grip me.

    I'll get my coat.
  4. That legendary all girl pop group with their unforgettable line "Zigga zigga aah"
  5. Orrfff one that gripes me beyond belief is the all round do-gooder 2nd son of God - Bono.
    From the song Elevation "A mole, digging in a hole"

    WHAT!?!?!? 8O How on earth does that sentence warrant a place in a rock/pop song?

    Surely, the winner is 2 Unlimited with the infamous sh!te song:

    "No, No. No, No, No, No. There's no lyrics" repeated ad nauseam in an annoying euro techno beat.

    They should be shot for the benefit of mankind.

    Or that fat woman Macy Gray warbling about some bloke she wants to rut singing a line about her world crumbling when he is not there ("I try" is the name of the song, I am told). It actually sounds like:

    "I wear goggles when you are not here!".

    Sh!te, utter boring and nonsense sh!te.
  8. True Pike, thats slightly iffy, but he then more than made up for it with "I really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree" :D

    This is a classic, my vote is for...

    Desree - Life

    I'm afraid of the dark
    Especially when I'm in the park
    When there's no one else around
    Oh I get the shivers
    I don't wanna see a ghost
    It's the sight that I fear most
    I'd rather have a piece of toast
    Watch the evening news

    I'm a superstitious girl
    I'm the worst in the world
    Never walk under ladders
    I keep a rabbits' tail
    I'll take you up on a dare
    Anytime, anywhere
    Name the place, I'll be there
    Bungee jumping, I don't care

    So after all's said and done
    I know I'm not the only one
    Life indeed can be fun
    If you really want to
    Sometimes living out your dreams
    Ain't as easy as it seems
    You wanna fly around the world
    In a beautiful balloon
  10. Its a testament to the brilliance of Marc Bolan, that he could write lines such as:-

    "She's my woman of gold and she's not very old"


    "She's faster than most and she lives on the coast"

    But still turn in a classic, despite plumbing the depths of alliteration.
  11. ^ Crap lyrics can be great. If that makes sense.

    However, I would like this thread to become a terrifying compendium of lyrics that are just plain crap.
  12. And what about those songmeisters, the Bay City Rollers?

    'Shang a lang... shoobedoowop...'

  13. shakira in wherever whenever...
    the lyric is mostly utter gash, but the best line obviously being "lucky that my breasts are small and humble so you don't confuse the for mountains"

    now call me old fashioned, but even the queerest of queer man is NOT gonna mistake a booby for a mountain is he?

    queen - bohemian raphsody is nonsensical genius from start to finish

    pink - just like a pill
    you're just like a pill instead of making me better you keep making me ill....
    ok, is a pill not suppose to MAKE you better, not ill?

    ironic by alanis morrissette - obviously not at all ironic, just crap things that happen.. little fcuk ups if you will, not irony (typical american)

    and what was that one by the tamperer chimney on her head or some suck cack

    i spend way to much time listening to music so i WILL be back with more later
  14. Marvin Gaye's Save the Children

    It's even worse when he's singing it:

    I just want to ask a question
    Who really cares?
    To save a world in despair
    There'll come a time, when the world won't be singin'
    Flowers won't grow, bells won't be ringin'
    Who really cares?
    Who's willing to try to save a world
    That's destined to die
    When I look at the world it fills me with sorrow
    Little children today are really gonna suffer tomorrow
    Oh what a shame, such a bad way to live
    All who is to blame, we can't stop livin'
    Live, live for life
    But let live everybody
    Live life for the children
    Oh, for the children
    You see, let's save the children
    Let's save all the children
    Save the babies, save the babies
    If you wanna love, you got to save the babies
    All of the children
    But who really cares
    Who's willing to try
    Yes, to save a world
    Yea, save our sweet world
    Save a world that is destined to die
    Oh, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    Oh, oh dig it everybody

  15. Annie Lennox - No More "I Love You"s

    What, in the name of all things lyrical, is a "Buttonhole tune"? :?
