Top 100 Worst Lyrics Of All Time #41 to #50

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #41

You know I feel so dirty when they start talking cute
I wanna tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot
’cause she’s watching him with those eyes
And she’s lovin’ him with that body, I just know it
And he’s holding her in his arms late, late at night
You know I wish that I had Jessie’s girl
I wish that I had Jessie’s girl
Why can’t I find a woman like that?

Rick Springfield - Jessie’s Girl

There is absolutely no justification for the existence of this song, and anyone who actually listens to the lyrics which contain the only known rhyming of cute with moot should run, not walk, to their nearest psychiatrist to enroll in twenty years of therapy.

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #42

See the primitive wallflower frieze
When the jelly-faced women all sneeze
Hear the one with the mustache say, "Jeeze
I can't find my knees"

Bob Dylan - Visions of Johanna

This song would have scored much higher if it had been more popular but it is one of Dylan's more obscure tunes. It's too bad that more of Dylan's tunes couldn't have stayed obscure as he makes Will.I.Am seem talented!

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #43

And a woman needs a man
Like a fish needs a bicycle

U2 - Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World

Bono, you know that you're scraping the very bottom of the musical barrel when you have to resort to ripping off a bumper sticker motto to stick into your lame tune. That is just embarrassing. Don't you guys have enough money yet? Why do you keep recording when it's obvious that you have all of the creative energy of an Irish cow pattie?

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #44

All my friends are Indians
All my friends are brown and red
Spoonman
All my friends are skeletons
They beat the rhythm with their bones
Spoonman

Soundgarden - Spoonman

Yikes! Is this song racist, or is it equating Native Americans with dead people, or is it just stupid nonsense that should never have been recorded? I tend to lean towards the stupid nonsense explanation. Now while we're on the subject of Indians, let's deal with the "other" Indians...

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #45

Brimful of Asha on the forty-five
Well it's a brimful of Asha on the forty-five
Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow
Everybody needs a bosom

Cornershop - Brimful Of Asha

I just couldn't help but make this one the number 45 as it's nothing but 45s all the way through:

Mohammed Ruffi (forty-five)
Lata Mangeshka (forty-five)
Solid state radio (forty-five)
Ferguson mono (forty-five)
Mon public (forty-five)
All Indian radio (forty-five)
Two in ones (forty-five)
Ovvo records (forty-five)
Trojan records (forty-five)

Don't think that you have to be from India to understand this song, as I've asked several people from the subcontinent and they don't have a clue either. Maybe he should hook up with the next song since they both seem to be fixated in using women's anatomy...

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #46

You must have been Miss Pennsylvania
With all this pulchritude
How come you always load your Pentax
When I'm in the nude?
We oughta have a birthday party
And you can wear your birthday clothes
We can hit the floor
And go explore those
Popsicle toes
You got the nicest North America
This sailor ever saw
I'd like to feel your warm Brazil
And touch your Panama
But Your Tierra del Fuegos
Are nearly always froze.
We gotta see saw
until we unthaw those
Popsicle toes
Popsicle toes
Popsicle toes are always froze
Popsicle toes
You're so brave to expose all those popsicle toes

Manhattan Transfer - Popsicle Toes

Is this a porn song, or just one written by a lunatic? It's obvious that North America refers to the lady's rack, and we can just imagine what warm Brazil and Panama he'd like to feel up. But he's taking photos of her naked and he's also trying to talk her into having a party while nude? What kind of a pervert is this guy?

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #47

Now Honey, you can't blame her
For what her mama gave her
It ain't right to hate her
For workin' that money-maker
Band shuts down at two
But we're hangin' out till three
We hate to see her go
But love to watch her leave
With that honky tonk badonkadonk
Keepin' perfect rhythm
Make ya wanna swing along
Got it goin' on
Like Donkey Kong
And ooo-wee
Shut my mouth, slap your grandma
There outta be a law
Get the Sheriff on the phone
Lord have mercy, how she even get them britches on
With that honky tonk badonkadonk

Trace Adkins - Honky Tonk Badonkadonk

Oh, yeah... we're really deep in pervert territory with this one. And Trace Adkins came off looking like such a solid family values man when he came in second in Celebrity Apprentice! This certainly isn't the song that a happily married man with kids would sing!

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #48

I would do anything for love
But I won't do that

Meat Loaf - I Would Do Anything For Love

Meat, my old buddy... Jim Steinman has written some superlative songs but just what the heck is "that" which you won't do? Is it illegal? Immoral? Fattening?

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #49

You've got your dumb friends
I know what they say
They tell you I'm difficult
But so are they
But they don't know me
Do they even know you?
All the things you hide from me
All the s**t that you do

Avril Lavigne - My Happy Ending

Avril, you have to take a hint from your own life where you just broke up with your hubby and let these losers take a hike, ok? If the guy is hiding all sorts of things from you what's the point of hanging around, especially when his friends are trying to break you up? Give me a call, Avril. I have this penchant for really hot young Canadian chicks who are filthy rich.

Worst Lyrics Of All Time - #50

I'm six feet from the edge
And I'm thinking
Maybe six feet ain't so far down

Creed - Six Feet Underground

Ok, if you're six feet from the edge, that doesn't necessarily mean that the edge leads to a six foot drop off, but then again, anyone trying to find sense in Creed's lyrics might as well try to find the meaning of life on the back of a box of corn flakes.

RE: #48. Perhaps you just didn't have the patience to listen to the entire song. In fairness, it is long even by Steinman standards, clocking in at 11 minutes. But if you wait it out until the female vocals:

[Girl:] After a while you'll forget everything

It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling

And you'll see that it's time to move on

[Boy:] I won't do that! No I won't do that!

[Girl:] I know the territory, I've been around

It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down

And sooner or later, you'll be screwing around

[Boy:] I won't do that! No I won't do that!

Not the head-scratching mystery that you make it out to be.

Not everyone loves every song. Personally I think the Plain White Tees song Hey There.... I can't even finish the title. Not one of my favorites. Too simple. No hard feelings. Not everyone loves Rick Springfield. He is a great song writer. I personally love the song Jessie's Girl.

- alright this one pissed me off cuz that's a good song and ur obviously pretty closed minded. hes not talking about a 6 foot drop, when you have passed away and are being buried ur buried 6 feet under.. lmao even the title of the song (which isn't the actual title) you listed as six feet underground..

RE #43, I don't know if this will help or make you think even LESS of Bono, but that line is stolen from a Tom Robinson Band song called "Right On, Sister:" "She's a right on sister and she knows what she likes, she needs you and me, man, like a fish needs a bike."

It seems whoever wrote these reviews are lacking a bit in intelligence, or at least poetic awareness. For example: Meatloaf-

But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way, tonight.

And I would do anything for love,

But I won't do that.

No, I won't do that!

He will never forgice himself... do you see it? did you actually read the lyrics you were writing about? he makes a statement of action and then says he won't do that for love.

OK. I can take most of the numbers on the list but Visions Of Johanna is well known as lyrical masterpiece. For goodness sake, Britains Poet Laureate called the lyrics the best song lyrics ever written. Out in America, it is studied in colleges as a piece of poetry!

#43 is a quote from a famous women's activist (can't remember the name) Bono didn't write it, and it makes sense, it's saying women don't need men :p
