Top 10 Dumbest Song Lyrics Ever
#10 - "Break Stuff" - Limp Bizkit

"I hope you know i pack a chainsaw/ And skin your ass raw/ And if my day keeps going this way i just might break somethin'/ Tonight/ I pack a chainsaw/ And skin your ass raw/ And if my day keeps going this way i just might break somethin'/ Tonight/ I pack a chainsaw/ And skin your ass raw/ And if my day keeps going this way i just might break your/ Fuckin' face tonight"

"Sometimes you're crazy and you wonder why/ I'm such a baby/ 'Cause the Dolphins make me cry"

#08 - "Sunglasses at Night" - Corey Hart

"And I wear my sunglasses at night/ So I can, so I can/ Forget my name while you collect your claim/ And I wear my sunglasses at night/ So I can, so I can/ See the light that's right before my eyes"

#07 - "I've Never Been to Me" - Charlene

"Oh, I've been to Georgia and California and anywhere I could run/ Took the hand of a preacher man/ and we made love in the sun/ But I ran out of places and friendly faces/ Because I had to be free/ I've been to paradise but I've never been to me"

#06 - "Ice Ice Baby" - Vanilla Ice

"To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal/ Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle/ Dance, Bum rush the speaker that booms/ I'm killing your brain like a poisonous mushroom"

"MacArthur Park is melting in the dark/ All the sweet, green icing flowing down/ Someone left the cake out in the rain/ I don't think that I can take it/ 'Cause it took so long to bake it/ And I'll never have that recipe again/ Oh, no!"

I agree with all of them, with the exception of "I've never been to me." I think that song has some incredible lyrics. They do make sense and they tell a clear story.

You forgot that catchy tune by Meatloaf "Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad." A sample: You'll never find your gold on a sandy beach You'll never drill for oil on a city street I know you're looking for a ruby In a mountain of rocks But there ain't no Coupe de Ville hiding At the bottom of a Cracker Jack box

How about just about anything from 'Yes.' "In and around the lake, moutains come out of the sky, they stand there. 24 before my love, I'll be there. And then there's Steve Miller... Billy Mack is a detective down in know he knows just exactly what the Facts is...

You could do a list of a million worst lyrics. You hear them, you accept them but if you really think about them you go "What the F does that mean???" Start with about half the Rolling Stones catalog.

How about America's 'Horse with no name' I quote it here The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz And the sky with no clouds The heat was hot and the ground was dry But the air was full of sound I've been through the desert on a horse with no name It felt good to be out of the rain In the desert you can remember your name 'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain

What about the song: What What in the Butt...?

omgsh - 2009-03-16 23:29:21

how can you forget this crap: Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat With a boulder on my shoulder feelin' kinda older I tripped the merry-go-round With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground

dushenka - 2009-03-19 16:14:59

Nothing beats this Sonny and Cher oldie: "The grocery stores, the super mart, uh huh/ Little girls still break their hearts, uh huh' And men still keep on marching off to war/ Electrically they keep a baseball score" Dumb? Uh huh!

Ron - 2009-06-11 02:24:41

and the entire Summer Girls song by LFO isnt absolutely retarded right?

Luffry - 2009-07-15 09:56:57

I work in a grocery store, and they spin the same 20 songs over and over throughout the day. As I was wrapping bread loaves the other day, Joey Lawrence's "Nothin' My Love Can't Fix" came on. Toward the end, he makes a feeble attempt at rapping, and says, "Ya gotta get away with me Ya gotta get away with me today Cuz our love has got to shine through And baby you got to see it too That we were meant girl me and you But lately you been acting Like I smell like a zoo (OMG) Philly zoo to be exact And hey Philly's my origin As a matter of fact But lets get back to the subject at hand Baby baby baby Oh you is back in demand When I look at you girl My heart goes right into a whirl And all I gotta say about the situation." Wow. Those are some STUPID-ass lyrics.

"You're always in the way, like a beast on my back / Were you dropped as a baby, because brains you lack" -Anthrax, "Caught in a Mosh" "Grinderrrr, looking for meat / Grinderrrr, wants you to EEEEATT!" - Judas Priest, "Grinder"

Kendra - 2009-08-05 10:06:06

i think miley cirys or how ever you spell her name should be added..the song see you again the line "i'v got my sights set on you and im ready to aim." If your sight is on someone you are aiming at them.

What about Beck's Song Loser? It's a good song but has some very stupid lyrics. "In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey Butane in my veins and I’m out to cut the junkie With the plastic eyeballs, spray-paint the vegetables Dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose Kill the headlights and put it in neutral Stock car flamin’ with a loser and the cruise control Baby’s in reno with the vitamin d Got a couple of couches, sleep on the love-seat Someone came sayin’ I’m insane to complain About a shotgun wedding and a stain on my shirt Don’t believe everything that you breathe You get a parking violation and a maggot on your sleeve So shave your face with some mace in the dark Savin’ all your food stamps and burnin’ down the trailer park" I mean really?

Mandy - 2009-09-04 12:55:24

I'd like to add Heart's "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You" to the list. Check this out: So we found this hotel It was a place I knew well We made magic that night Oh, he did everything right He brought the woman out of me So many times, easily And in the morning, when he woke All I left him was a note I told him I am the flower You are the seed We walked in the garden We planted a tree Don't try to find me Please don't you dare Just live in my memory You'll always be there Really, the whole, flower/seed/garden thing?

I've got the ultimte one-upper: "Strike up the band and watch the fireflies dance with silver moon sparklies" WHAM...beat that shit I think it's "kiss me" by the cranberries

this list is invalid because El Mudo - Chacarron Macarron isnt #1 seriously youtube it i promise ull agree with me like no joke that song is beyond stupid. seriously youtube google whatever i promise ull see. oooh n warning listening might reduce brain function and possibly make u retarded so yea listen at ur on risk..

Don't really disagree with anything on the list but some notable British mentions: Manic Street Preachers in the song Kevin Carter: "The elephant is so ugly/ He sleeps his head machetes his bed" Now they are a truly awesome band but there's no way in hell that that line makes any sense to anyone. And Robbie sodding Williams, Angels: "Through it all she offers me protection, a lot of love and affection" you can actually see his chimpanzee face screwing up in concentration as he tries to find a word that rhymes with "protection", can only come up with "affection" then fills the missing syllables up with "a lot of". Twat.

Macarthur Park was not written by Donna Summer.

DARK BEATZ - 2010-08-25 21:38:45

Actually Meat Loafs "Two out of Three Ain't Bad" The lyrics were very well written, and the fact that the girl was looking for much better treatment is what he is saying. No she will never find a Cadillac Coup De Ville hiding in a cracker Jack Box...or in other words the Grass is not always greener on the other side...Brilliant if you ask me... On a Side note the most awful lyrics have to be from Rappers Delight...The whole song is comical at best and stupid at worst no one raps about nasty tasting food....seriously? DUMB

Em - 2010-10-20 23:05:38

They should update this. Especially with gems we have now: "And I was like baby, baby, baby, oh!" and "Iyiyiyiyiyi'm missin' you." Anyone who knows people between the ages of 7-16 have probably heard these songs.

EBV - 2010-11-11 04:24:06

For sheer vapid, accidental stupidity, it is hard to beat "Rockin' in to the Night" by .38 Special. Besides repeating its own title ad nauseum, the song has just a few other lines, all of them about picking up female sex partners in an automobile. Example: "Well I swear, we were doing 80 when we saw those motel lights."

anything but disco - 2010-12-30 21:20:05

it's actually pretty hard to top: "Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kid, and there's no one there to raise them if you did." Or, from the same classic, "And all the science, I don't understand. It's just my job 5 days a week," Thanks Bernie and Elton, you conspired on some of the worst lyrics ever!

You forgot to Add "Suddenly Last Summer" by the Motels. One summer never ends, one summer never began It keeps me standing still, it takes all my will And then suddenly last summer Sometimes I never leave, but sometimes I would Sometimes I stay too long, sometimes I would Sometimes it frightens me, sometimes it would Sometimes I'm all alone and wish that I could
Captain Fantastic - 2012-09-24 04:43:43

Of course, no retrospective of dumb song lyrics would be complete without "Blinded by the Light" by Manfred Mann's Earth Band: "Madman drummers bummers Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat, In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat, With a boulder on my shoulder, feelin' kinda older, I tripped the merry-go-round, With this very unpleasin' sneezin' & wheezin' the calliope crashed to the ground..." You get the idea. Can't believe Springsteen admits to writing this piece of crap!

Ernie - 2012-11-26 21:00:46

I could nominate the entire 1970s Disco era, but I'll instead give you these two "gems" ; "Fly Robin Fly" by the Silver Convention, with the lyrics "Fly robin fly/Fly robin fly/Fly robin fly/Up up to the sky" (and those are the COMPLETE LYRICS! The only words in the entire song!); or the later '70s Disco "classic" "In the Bush", whose lyrics are nothing more than the words "Push push in the bush" repeated over and over again. Makes crap like "Kiss Me" by Sixpence None the Richer seem like high art. I could also nominate "Chacarron Macarron" by El Mudo, but it's hard to say something has bad lyrics when the lyrics are totally unintelligible and incoherent.

anonymous - 2013-02-17 16:05:57

Kick-ass Top 10 List! Omg, I've been cracking up for the last 30 mins reading all the comments here and Im so excited the list is STILL going, wow! These are great, BUT.....I didnt see anyone bring up Nickelback's "Figured You Out" Oh Ooh, I dont even wanna type them they're so fucking cheesey and icky....Im gonna need a shower after this I guess, but I gotta share, lol. I dont know if they'll beat "Abra, abra-ca-dabra I wanna reach out and grab ya"s lyrics, but here goes..... "I like your pants around feet, and I like the dirt thats on your knees, and I like the way you still say please while you're looking up at me, you're like my favorite damn disease" OMG, Ewwww! Guys dont say that to filthy whores who give blow jobs all day! Do they? hahahaha Ok, I need a shower - I have filthy skank and Canadian douchebag cooties all me now - blech! Gimme Muscat Love ANY day of the week....just please dont ever let me see anything Nickleback again! LOL

Muskrat Love deserves a special award because the Captain & Tennille version was the SECOND remake of this hideous song. The original was recorded by the songwriter - of course - but then America covered it in 1973 as well. Then Captain & Tennille come along 3 years later and actually thought recording it yet again would be a good idea?!? Obviously not the high point of 70s music. Which reminds me: How about the a list of the 10 worst covers of songs every recorded? William Shatner's cover of Mr. Tambourine Man would have to be somewhere on that list.
