Top 100 Worst Lyrics Of All Time #11 to #20

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #11

Some people call me Maurice
Cause I speak of the pompitous of love

Steve Miller Band - The Joker

If you have to start inventing new words in the English language, you had damn well better have the writing chops of Lewis Carroll. What the heck is a pompitous? A Latin pump?

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #12

If you tell my heart
My achy breaky heart
He might blow up and kill this man

Billy Ray Cyrus - My Achy Breaky Heart

Billy Ray, who has become the most famous one hit wonder in history... a man who has made a career living off one hit song and one hit daughter... plunges lyrics into new depths... even ascribing a gender to his own heart! Sheesh!

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #13

Like every girl in history
She bangs, she bangs

Ricky Martin - She Bangs

Not only is this lyric patently offensive, Ricky must have neglected to consider that there have been millions of nuns and other ladies who choose to go through their lives as virgins, so... dude, not every girl in history bangs, ok? Sheesh...

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #14

I'd like to walk you through a field of wildflowers
And I'd like to check you for ticks

Brad Paisley - Ticks

Brad's always creeped me out a bit as he looks like the neighborhood pervert who hangs out in a trench coat in front of the elementary school, but to write a love song about removing blood sucking insects? Yuck!

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #15

Song she sang to me
Song she brang to me

Neil Diamond - Play Me

She brang? Did Neil Diamond really write "brang"? How desperate for rhymes do you have to be? Neil, do me a favor and go back to talking to your chair (I Am, I Said) on the third of June which you think is a summer's day (Desiree).

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #16

The seed inside you, baby
Do you feel it growin'
Are you happy in knowin'
That you're havin' my baby

Paul Anka - Having My Baby

It wouldn't even be that horrendously bad, except that the next lyric deals with their discussions of aborting the baby! Paul, what were you thinking? Maybe the same thing you were thinking when you wrote "I saw it through without exemption" in My Way.

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #17

We beat the party starters
Bubblin up just like lava
Like lava heated like a sauna
Penetrating thru your body arma'
Rhythmically we massage ya
With hip hop mixed up with samba

Black Eyed Peas - Mas Que Nada

The only reason to include this in an otherwise rap-free list is because Sergio Mendes himself is playing his magnificent tune on this track, so it isn't the usual stolen lick edit. And the video is absolutely Amazon steamin' with Fergie for once being sexy and not skanky, and a great Portuguese vocal by Gracinha Leporace (Mrs. Mendes). But... Lava... sauna... through your body arma'? Gag! Now I know why I hate rap so much. Maybe Perez Hilton had a point about Will.I.Am having zero talent.

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #18

What you gon' do with all that junk?
All that junk inside that trunk?
I'ma get, get, get, get you drunk
Get you love drunk off my hump
What you gon' do with all that ass?
All that ass inside them jeans?
I'm a make, make, make, make you scream
Make you scream, make you scream
'Cos of my hump, my hump my hump my hump
My hump my hump my hump, my lovely lady lumps
Check it out

The Black Eyed Peas - My Humps

Here's the confirmation on Will.I.Am's talent. Yes, Perez did turn out to be right. I don't want to drink anything off your ass hump lumps, Fergie, (at least without a Level 5 BioSuit) but thanks anyway. And yes, this tune verges far too far into rap territory. I'll never do that again...

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #19

Two, three, four!
In-a-gadda-da-vida honey
dontcha know that I love you?
In-a-gadda-da-vida baby
dontcha know that I'll always be true?

Iron Butterfly - In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

Dontcha know that I'll always be stoned? Or at least you have to be to figure out just what the heck In-a-gadda-da-vida means... but maybe we can smack Coldplay with another plagiarism suit! They stole the music from Viva La Vida and they stole the title from In-a-gadda-da-vida!

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #20 (Tie)

I'm drinking a soy latte
I get a double shot-te'
It goes into my body and you know I'm satisfied

Madonna - American Life

I don`t like cities, but I like New York
Other places make me feel like a dork

Madonna - I Love New York

I just couldn't choose which one of this over the hill wrinkly skanky diva's lyrics was better than the other, so we have the only tie in the list. Just like the tie I'd like to wrap around my own neck and jump off a bridge if I have to see one more naked photo of her! Eeek!

ok, Hal, I hear you and I understand what you are attempting to say. But I want you to take a moment and Listen to (5) actual true Rappers and not these mainstream Hip Hoppers trying to make a dollar: NAS, MOS DEF, TALIB KWELI & KRS-ONE. I believe that the culture of true Music is dwindling southward but Please don't make the mistake of hating A particular type of music due the awful mainstream crap that's out there. But you are funny..

I'll check them out but I have to warn you that 99.9% of rap I've heard is like nails on a chalkboard to my dinosaur ears trained on Perry Como and Andy Williams. :)

Here is a great trivia question. What was the first "actual" rap record that broke into the Billboard Top 10? Hint, it was in the early 70s! :)

Hal, the first rap group that is best known is of course The Sugar Hill gang, but that was all before my time.. Enlighten me please..

The first real one was a good five years before Sugar Hill Gang's 1979 Rapper's Delight which only hit #36. The first bonafide hit was Life Is A Rock (But The Radio Rolled Me) by Joey Levine and Reunion in 1974. It wouldn't be recognized as a rap song by today's standards, but it was definitely the first Top 10 to include rap lyrics! :) This question should be on Jeopardy or Trivial Pursuit! :)

Wow... Rap, to me, is a flow, a systematic release of verbal litigation that stems from a certain hardship not easily surpassed. Rapping takes a skill of poetic mastery and mix with the ability to express those hardships with a tune. I will admit to not listening to the entire song, but what I take of it, is that, this person(group) was nothing then they made it in the music world and became something---like overnight success.. Or a more literal meaning could be that they wanted to be Rock n Roll artists but the media decided otherwise... Still, no lyrical expression of hardship... Dude, isn't this the same guy u busted in some of your Worst lyrics Hub... Come'on, don't give him credit where it's not due... ROTFL

Joey was the foremost producer of bubblegum music including Run Run Run and Yummy Yummy Yummy, which contains one of the great poetic lyrics of all time:

Yummy Yummy Yummy

I've got love in my tummy

Ah... such romance! :)

Achy breaky...has to be #1, followed by anything else he and his daughter have hoisted like a flaming bag of poop upon America


Serpenrushi 5 years ago

Actually, the song by Iron Butterfly had lyrics 'In a garden of Eden'.......But the vocalist was so stoned that he said 'In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida'!

Another fine example of stoned 70's.........

Madonna should be banned from rapping. And that "Humps" song is terrible.
