That Meatloaf thing is about the first thing that made me want to write...LOL, the first time in my life I've ever written it!
Yuck! Disgusting!

"Having my baby?" BOL Barf on line!

Maybe we should put our minds together and write a collective song...the Funtrivia song!

By the way, the name game song is really really awful if, like me your name rhymes with something obscene. My first name is ok, but the last name is a cross to bear.

Wez- you'll be delighted to know that here in the Uk (where we unfortunately hear about every move the Gallagher's make) they are about to make a comeback!!! They did a gig only this week - top marks that it was for childhood cancer AND they apparently behaved themselves but I can't imagine we'll see a new era of peace, love and understanding from them!!!!
Incidently, you may be interested to know Liam recently had a baby with Nicole of All Saints fame (another bunch of great talents...remember Never Ever...a completely rip-off of Amazing Grace)

Tush pushin', thunder footin'
Cowgirl twistin', No resistin'
Drums bangin', steel twangin'
Two steppin', end to end

Hardwood crawlin', some four wallin'
Rug cuttin', cowboy struttin'
Burnin' yearnin', windin' grindin'
Let's begin the dance again

Oooo
You're mine, all mine now bubba
Gonna rope you in so count me in
5-6-7-8

My boot-scootin' baby is drivin' me crazy
My obsession from a western, my dance floor date
My rodeo romeo, a cowboy god from head to toe
Wanna make you mine, betta get in line
5-6-7-8

That's by Steps. It's called 5-6-7-8. It's a line dancing song. It's phenomenally rubbish. Really, really, unbelievably rubbish. Boot-scootin' baby indeed!

You've gotta treat a woman rough,
You've gotta treat a woman tough,
Be a caveman,
Keep her in line.

"Be A Caveman" by The Tigermen (I think)

A slightly objectionable garage punk song from the enlightened 60's!

RE: "Inagaddadavida"

I think that was the correct spelling...Anyway, the title was supposed to be "In the Garden of Eden," but Iron Butterfly were so stoned when they sang it, they ended up re-titling the song!

That's the worst news I've heard for absolutely ages, an Oasis comeback, oh please NO!!!! Come on guys, you had a good run on absolutely no talent, you made plenty of money, have the good taste and manners to disappear like good boys.

I can't believe no one's mentioned Britney Spears(or maybe they have and I just didn't see it) Especially 'Oops I did it again/I played with your heart/Got lost in the game' Or "I'm a Slave 4 U" My sister made a really good point. First she rants about how she's 'not a little girl' then she sings about this guy(?)Whatever.

"Oh Mickey, you're so fine
You're so fine you blow my mind.
Hey, Mickey! Hey Mickey!

There is a song by a group called "Three Dead Trolls in a Bag" and I believe the title is "Ontario Sucks". Anyway, in this song, virtually everything about Ontario sucks! See if you can find it. I know a lot of people don't like the above word I have mentioned so many times, but that IS how the song goes - over and over again! The first time I heard it I just had to download it and listen to it a few times because it is so totally outrageous! It appeals to a warped sense of humour. (That would be mine!) Bye!

The absolutely WORST lyrics ever written are in a song called THE ROAD BEHIND by Gwar.......here are just a few of the "highlights":

"you were a roadkill baby
till I scraped you in my arms
just another wattle flapping
on the old turkey farm..."

"Baby quit your crying
Put your clown britches on..."

"Signed a million dollar contract
I puked on every page
Slaughtered half the crew
Cause they ate my deli tray..."

It just doesn't get any worse than this song, but the sad part is, that the music to it is actually pretty good....... [Eek!] [Eek!]

"Wrote so many songs about you, I forget your name (I forget you name), Jennifer, Alison, Philippa, Sue, Deborah, Annabel too (I forget your name)"

That's from "Some For Whoever" by the Beautiful South. No logic to it whatsoever!

I decided to resurrect this old thread. My favourite radio station has a different topic each day and this was one of the topics in the past week.

I agree with almost all the ones already mentioned. When it comes to bad lyrics, it's hard to beat Queen. Bohemian Rhapsody is just dreadful.

However, my vote goes to the Australian national anthem.

Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free,
We've golden soil and wealth for toil,
Our home is girt by sea ...

GIRT by sea? When was the last time you heard someone say "girt"? Have you EVER heard anyone say "girt"? (It means surrounded).

Yeah thanks, MG. I can just picture a new cafe or apartment block opening up on the Gold Coast with the name 'Girt By the Sea'. Has a nice ring to it.

I remember Paul McCartney saying that lyrics don't really matter. They were just an effect, and if they sounded good, it didn't matter that they didn't make sense.
That would kinda explain 'Hi Hi Hi' by Wings, which had the classic line, 'Like a rabbit, gonna grab it, gonna do ya till the night is done'. Ah, they don't write 'em like that anymore!

I was thinking Girth quite honestly! I was thinking of the beach there in Australia with someone hauling their girth closer to the sea! I mean, what's this legendary place you're mentioning? Bondi Beach?


The words to the French national anthem are about as gory as you can get...yet few know them...only my son in civic education apparently!
Come to think of it, don't know too many national anthems that aren't weird.
And impossible for anyone to sing!
The Us anthem has the most mondegreen potential and hard notes to hit.
The Italian anthem I had to look up for a project for the kids, another one.

Did we do that one "You're having my baby?"
I keep thinking of what I'd do to the guy who sang that to me...especially in labour...

...my mother used to call me girt when she was trying to be nice to me....so I always assumed "girt" meant "sweetheart", or something like that....."Our home is sweetheart by sea".....It doesn't make much sense, but it seems much nicer than my mother calling me "surrounded"....???

Tanzen, are you sure your mother wasn't calling you "Gert" as in Gertrude?

Bruyere, you and I certainly are "twins". I almost nominated that song "Having my baby" in my original post but changed my mind. I HATE that song, along with Mac Davis's "Baby, baby, don't get hooked on me" and that awful "Rocky" song - I don't know what it's really called but the girl in the song is dying and part of the lyrics go something like - "Rocky, I've never had to die before, don't know if I can do it" (like she has a choice?!)

Imagine the scenario, you're in the last part of labour and you hear, "you're having my baby, what a wonderful way to say you really love me..." I mean, any normally constituted woman would probably throw the nearest object at him! I suppose if the man said, "our" baby, I might let it go, but "My"?

I would suggest the Pina Colada song but actually I find it kinda cute. And hey, bet Copago wouldn't mind getting caught in the rain right now, don't you think?

One of the nicknames we have for Princess Wonderful is 'Gerty Bloggs'. My mother-in-law nicknamed her that because she was acting like a real 'Gertrude'.
I have strange relations....

My grandmother use to call my sisters 'Giggling Gerties' when they were younger. I wonder if that is the answer you are looking for?

It's looking a lot more optimistic than it was when I thought my mother was calling me "Girt"
