Here's one of mine...

"Mars ain't the kind of place
To raise your kids
In fact, it's cold as hell" .... from Rocketman by Elton John

Hell ain't cold, it's supposed to be very warm!! wink

Also, Let's Go Fly A Kite from Mary Poppins...it's should be Let's Go AND Fly A Kite.
Saving Mr Banks my ar$e wink

What are yours?

In 2014 I shall cease to be pedantic, so I won't say anything about why those lyrics are actually OK.

From "When Doves Cry" by Prince -

"animals strike curious poses, they feel the heat, the heat between me and you... "


It was an idiotic lyric that just annoyed me when it was released and it is just as stupid and annoying now big grin I can just imagine a deer or squirrel doing a comedic eye popping double-take.

And what the hell does it sound like when doves cry...and do they even cry ?

A friggin' moronic song . But... that's Prince for ya big grin

Ever since my wicked brother told me that Elmer Bernstein's magnificent score for The Great Escape was based on a popular WW2 song, my mind refuses to hear the title theme without the damn lyrics popping into my head. My brother liked to torment me in such ways. I can only hope that Alzheimer's will cure this problem for me.

I think that might have been BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI... Something about the size (or absence) of testicles... But I might be getting my knickers in a twist (Ouch! My balls!).

I never cared much for Stevie Wonder's -

"I just called to say I love you,
I just called to say how much I care,
I just called to say I love you,
And I mean it from the bottom of my... (can't quite recall - "hair"? "chair"? - ah, now I remember -
heart".

I promise to be more pedantic in 2014!

I too can't stand lyrics that repeat about 200 times (or at least SEEM to repeat that many times!). For me, it's a nightmare being stuck near someone playing a song with repetitious lyrics like that! Just don't understand how anyone can take it!

Not to get too far off the path, but some religions, including, I believe, Tibetan Buddhism, depict Hell as cold. Dante's Inferno also portrays the 9th circle of Hell as a frozen lake. So this is likely where the phrase "cold as Hell" is derived from. smile

As for annoying lyrics, I like Tim McGraw, but one song of his contains the lyric, "She sits there quietly, like water in a jar." First time I heard it on the radio, I was like, "What?" LOL!

I too can't stand lyrics that repeat about 200 times (or at least SEEM to repeat that many times!).

The outro of "Hey Jude" comes to mind. Not one of my favorite Beatles tunes.

Shania Twain songs. Those lyrics were nonsensical!

I was being sarcastic because so many of there songs they do repeat the same lyrics over and over again. Then there is that hit song from the early 60's lollipop , lollipop, lollipop lollipop-----lollipop.

Don't get me wrong, I love the song[composition-Jimmy webb] it is a classic- Macarthur park--But someone left the cake out in the rain, I don't think I can take it, i'll never have the recipe again, oh no-What is that, a man who works in a bakery going berserk? Yes I know as a artist about all those deep subtle meanings hiding in words, but this one, i don't really get it.

Totally agree - lyrics that keep repeating through a song is SOOOOOOO un-creative...:-(
