Most lyrics by The Mars Volta.

Sure, they're interesting musicians (assuming that you think "going schizoid on your instrument for ten minutes in 13/8" is interesting) and pretty good at playing them, but really, WTF?!

This is one of the ones that vaguely makes sense - L'Via L'Viaquez
Spoiler:
L’ Via (huh?)
Hija de Miranda (daughter of Miranda)
Tu Apellido se cambió (you changed your name)
L’ Via
Sin Ojos me quieres dar (without eyes you want to give to me)
Una historia sin mi madre (a story without my mother)
Solo tengo que decirte (I just have to say to you)
El dolor de noche dice (The pain of night time says)
Solo se quedo el vestido (Only the clothes remain)
Le lave la sangre (I washed out the blood)

L’ Via
No dejes de descansar (Don't stop resting)
En la calle caminas (you walk the streets)
Quien te va a perseguir (Who's going to chase you?)
L’ Via
Te quieren matar (They want to kill you)
Dientes de Machete (Machete teeth (!))
Cabezas de gallo (Chicken heads)

L’ Via
Durmiendo en paz (Sleeping in peace)
Abre los ojos (Open your eyes)
Todo cambiará (Everything will change)
L’ Via
Soñando de venganza (Dreaming of vengeance)
Y yo te lo juro (I promise you)
Lo van a pagar (They will pay)
Blackmailed, she fell off every mountain
The ones they tightly wrapped in tape
In her eraser sang the guilty
As it made the best mistakes
And with everybody that I find
And with every clamor that they mine
I won’t forget who I’m looking for
Oh mother help me I’m looking for

L ‘ Via
Hija de Miranda
Tu apellido se cambió
L’ Via
Sin ojos me quieres dar
Una historia sin mi madre
Solo tengo que decirte
El dolor de noche dice
Solo se quedo el vestido
Le lave la sangre

Blackmailed, she fell off every mountain
The ones they tightly wrapped in tape
In her eraser sang the guilty
As it made the best mistakes
And with everybody that I find
And with every clamor that they mine
I won’t forget who I’m looking for
Oh mother help me I’m looking for
Solo tengo (I only have)
Una hora (One hour)
Y me duermo (and I sleep)
Terminado (finished)
Por veinte y cinco (For twenty five)
Años pasaron (years passed)
Siguen los cuerpos (they follow the bodies)
Aqui temblando (trembling here)
Tome la sangre (I drank the blood)
Comi el cuerpo (I ate the body)
Mis lagrimas (My tears)
Quiebra el espejo (break the mirror)

When all the worms come
Crawlin out of your head
Telling you
Don’t you be afraid
When all the worms come
Crawlin out of your head
Telling you
Don’t you be afraid

(disclaimer: I'm a fan of the Mars Volta)

TMV lyrics are just very... obscure and... indirect which makes them kinda hard to figure out.

I almost feel like explaining... but that would get offtopic. I'll just say... they're an acquired taste... :mrgreen:

Selections from "Bootylicious," Destiny's Child:

I don't think you ready for this jelly
i don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this
Is my body too bootylicious for ya baby?
I don't think you ready for this jelly
i don't think you ready for this jelly
I don't think you ready for this
Is my body too bootylicious for ya babe?

pop body oh body
pop body oh body oh body eh' om body oh ew oh um
POW POW POW POW


I think that's enough to get the point across.

I'm pretty surprised to see that show up in Boy Band lyrics.


According to dictionary.com these days facsimile is generally used of documents, paintings etc. I've never heard anyone ever use the word in any other sense. Which is why I thought it was bizarre showing up in a boy band song in that context, I guess the song writer needed a certain number of syllables to fill that gap.

best Daft Punk song ever.


Second'd. Okay, not the best one EVER to me (several songs on Discovery would qualify for that one), but up there. Daft Punk found the charm of repetition in their first two albums. Then they found the ugliness of repetition on their third one, and made it awesome as well.

I'm going to contribute "Kiss me Through the Phone" by Generic Chris-Brown-something.

"Baby I just wana kiss you,
but I can't right now so kiss me through the phoooone,
I'll see you later ooon."

When I heard that on the radio, I literally was almost crying from laughter....

It's Soulja Boy.

I do not know what happened.

I even like a bit of top40 *coughtaylorswiftcough*, but every time that song comes on my mind is just blown. The beat and the hook are catchy, but why not make the lyrics have even a fraction of intelligence.

Worst song lyrics ever by a japanese band by the name of barbatos

Dick is fucking big
Pussy is fucking tight
Anal fuck is waiting
Big dick's might

Dick is fucking big
Fuck off shaving pussy

Put it in bitch mouth
It will makes you to ill
Sexual metal holocaust will
Crush poser gay!

Dick is fucking big
Fuck off shaving pussy

I will please entry anus
Oh my god! Give me spicy pussy
Pussy is good smell
Shit is bad smell

Dick is fucking big
Fuck off shaving pussy

Blof ft. Counting Crows - Holiday in Spain

Note: These are just the English lyrics, most of the Dutch are even more nonsensical. Bold parts are translations from the Dutch lines above.

Hop on my choo-choo
I'll be your engine driver in a bunny suit
If you dress me up in pink and white
We may be just a little fuzzy 'bout it later tonight

She's my angel
She's a little better than the one that used to be with me
Cause she liked to scream at me
Man, it's a miracle that she's not living up in a tree

I may take a holiday in Spain
Leave my wings behind me
Drive this little girl insane
And fly away to someone new

Everybody's gone
They left the television screaming that the radio's on
Mijn schoenen zijn gejat
(My shoes have been stolen)
Maar ik hoef niet meer naar buiten want er is nog wel wat
(But I don't have to go out, because there is still something left)

Happy new year's baby!
We could probably fix it if we clean it up all day
Or we could simply pack our bags
We gaan meteen naar Barcelona want we moeten hier weg
(We'll leave for Barcelona immediately, because we have to leave here)

What about Matching Mole's song Signed Curtain ?

It goes like this :

This is the first verse
The first verse
This is the first verse of the song
This is the first verse

And this is the chorus
Or maybe it's a bridge
Or just another part of the song

And this is the second verse of the song
This is the second verse
The second verse
This is the second verse

And this is the chorus
Or maybe it's a bridge
But it's the last one


...well in fact it's pretty cool...
Do not conquer. Do not fight back. Do not give up.

"Pay No Mind" by Beck. I bolded the parts that don't make sense.
Spoiler:
Tonight the city is full of morgues
And all the toilets are overflowing
There's shopping malls coming out of the walls
As we walk out among the manure

Give the finger to the rock 'n' roll singer
As he's dancing upon your paycheck
The sales climb high through the garbage-pail sky
Like a giant dildo crushing the sun

So get out your lead-pipe pipe dreams
Get out your ten-foot flags
The insects are huge and the poison's all been used
And the drugs won't kill your day job...honey

Human. WHAT?

Spoiler:
I did my best to notice
When the call came down the line
Up to the platform of surrender
I was brought but I was kind

And sometimes I get nervous
When I see an open door
Close your eyes, clear your heart
Cut the cord

Are we human or are we dancers?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancers?

Pay my respects to grace and virtue
Send my condolences to good
Give my regards to soul and romance
They always did the best they could

And so long to devotion
You taught me everything I know
Wave goodbye, wish me well
You've gotta let me go

Are we human or are we dancers?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancers?

Will your system be alright
When you dream of home tonight?
There is no message we're receiving
Let me know, is your heart still beating?

Are we human or are we dancers?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer

You've gotta let me know
Are we human or are we dancers?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancers?

Are we human or are we dancers?
Are we human or are we dancers?


EDIT: Screw it, BOTH OF THESE songs are fucknuts.

Discovery Channel, by the Bloodhound Gang. Again, wat?

Spoiler:
Ha-ha, well now, we call this the act of mating
But there are several other
Very important differences
Between human beings and animals
That you should know about

I'd appreciate your input

Sweat baby, sweat baby
Sex is a Texas drought
Me and you do the kind of stuff
That only Prince would sing about
So put your hands down my pants
And I bet you'll feel nuts
Yes I'm Siskel, yes I'm Ebert
And you're getting two thumbs up
You've had enough of two-hand touch
You want it rough, you're out of bounds
I want you smothered, want you covered
Like my Waffle House hashbrowns
Comin' quicker than Fed Ex
Never reach an apex
Just like coca-cola stock
You are inclined to make me rise an hour early
Just like daylight savings time


Do it now

You and me baby me ain't nothin' but mammals
So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Do it again now
You and me baby me ain't nothin' but mammals
So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Gettin' horny now

Love, the kind you clean up
With a mop and bucket
Like the lost catacombs of Egypt
Only God knows where we stuck it
Hieroglyphics? Let me be pacific
I wanna be down in your South Seas
But I got this notion
That the motion of your ocean means
"Small Craft Advisory"
So if I capsize on your thighs
High tide B-5 you sunk my battleship
Please turn me on
I'm Mr. Coffee
With an automatic drip
So show me yours, I'll show you mine
"Tool Time"
You'll Lovett just like Lyle
And then we'll do it doggy style
So we can both watch "X-Files"


Do it now

You and me baby me ain't nothin' but mammals
So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Do it again now
You and me baby me ain't nothin' but mammals
So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Gettin' horny now

You and me baby me ain't nothin' but mammals
So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Do it again now
You and me baby me ain't nothin' but mammals
So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Do it now
You and me baby me ain't nothin' but mammals
So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Do it again now
You and me baby me ain't nothin' but mammals
So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel
Gettin' horny now

The opening post reminds me of A Brand - Time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ymd8WrE_RBg
From 1:25 to 1:45 the lyrics are:
"One two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen seventeen eighteen nineteen twenty twenty-one twenty-two twenty-three twenty-four twenty-five twenty-six twenty-seven twenty-eight twenty-nine thirty."
But all their songs are full of nonsense, I guess they don't care.

And bad songs always have bad lyrics too, but I won't waste my time trying to find them all.

As much as I hate to say it, I think you took that second lyric out of context. weezy doesn't really have any real line structure, he just sort of flows. The shy bitch is relevant to the next part of the song. That's his appeal, he flows really well. But I agree, he is over the top. Doesn't stop me from liking the music on occassion though.

Your mother warned you there'd be days like these But.. "So no one told you life was gonna be this way" ! Pick one! Stay internally consistent!
....
No one could ever know me
No one could ever see me
Seems you're the only one who knows No one could ever, or Everyone except this one person?
...

Your annotations reminded me of Jarvis Cocker's commentary on "You're Beautiful", which I think I linked to in the recent "lyrics or music?" thread:

Jarvis Cocker wrote:Consider James Blunt. I know that attacking him may seem like shooting fish in a barrel, but I'm going to do it anyway. Let's look at the lyrics for 'You're Beautiful'.
"My life is brilliant."


Hmmm. It doesn't really get off to the best start does it? Anyway, let's carry on...

"My love is pure. I saw an angel. Of that I'm sure
She smiled at me on the subway. She was with another man
But I won't lose no sleep on that, cause I've got a plan"


Okay, that sounds pretty interesting. It makes you wonder what the plan is and how he's going to get the woman. So you naturally want to keep listening...

"You're beautiful. You're beautiful. You're beautiful, it's true
I saw you face in a crowded place, and I don't know what to do, cause I'll never be with you"


Oh? But he just told us he had a plan - now he's telling us he'll never see her again.
"Yeah, she caught my eye, as we walked on by. She could see from my face that I was flying high
And I don't think that I'll see her again, but we shared a moment that will last till the end"


Okay, there's still no sign of the plan. I'm starting to worry about all this...
"You're beautiful. You're beautiful. You're beautiful, it's true
I saw you face in a crowded place, and I don't know what to do, cause I'll never be with you"


A bit of repetition there. And he's leaving it a bit late to tell us about his plan...

"You're beautiful. You're beautiful. You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face when she thought up that I should be with you
But it's time to face the truth, I will never be with you"


Can you believe it? There was no plan. It was a LIE!

Just had another thought. "Some Girls are Bigger Than Others" by The Smiths. This probably isn't completely fair because I think the song is meant to be humorous, but still.

From the ice-age to the dole-age
There is but one concern
I have just discovered :

Some girls are bigger than others
Some girls are bigger than others
Some girls mothers are bigger than
Other girls mothers

As anthony said to cleopatra
As he opened a crate of ale :

Oh, I say :
Some girls are bigger than others
Some girls are bigger than others
Some girls mothers are bigger than
Other girls mothers

Send me the pillow ...
The one that you dream on ...
Send me the pillow ...
The one that you dream on ...
And Ill send you mine

Yeah, seems pretty dumb... if you cut the sentence, right? :roll:

Personally, i love that line

Some song that people keep on playing for some reason has the following lyrics:
I don't care about anyone else but me
I don't care about anyone else but me
I don't care about anyone else but me
I don't care about anyone else but me
[repeat indefinitely]


Really, man? No one else but you? OK. Umm... yeah. This conversation is pretty much over... so... umm... I'm gonna go over there now. Yeah. Bye.

I just had a flashback to a song that was inexplicably popular on the local community radio station many years back... they played it every couple of days for quite a while.

Tuneless shouting over drum track:
Australia! Don't become America!
Australia! Don't become America!
Australia! Don't become America!
Australia! Don't become America!

Australia! Don't become America!
Australia! Don't become America!
Australia! Don't become America!
Australia! Don't become America!

McDonalds and Coca Cola!
McDonalds and Coca Cola!
McDonalds and Coca Cola!
McDonalds and Coca Cola!

Australia! Don't become America!
Australia! Don't become America!
Australia! Don't become America!
Australia! Don't become America!

Repeat until song ends

Code: Select all

enum ಠ_ಠ {°□°╰=1, °Д°╰, ಠ益ಠ╰};
void ┻━┻︵​╰(ಠ_ಠ ⚠) {exit((int)⚠);}

While repetitive does not always equal bad ("Hanky Panky" is a great song), sometimes it does. I give you: "Neanderthal Man" by Hotlegs.

The lyrics are, as follows, and I quote:

"I'm a Neanderthal man
You're a Neanderthal girl
Let's make Neanderthal love
In a Neanderthal world."
"Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together." --Carl Zwanzig

The entire set of lyrics, for five and a half minutes. English as their second language does not make up for that level of laziness.
Ah, well, it sounds good anyway.

But nevermind. Others' posts are far, far better.
Or, should I say, worse? Ah, dang.


Awesome, another Dir en grey fan! :) Another song in a similar vein, I think, would be Child Prey. Don't get me wrong, I like the song, but most people who hear it or look at the lyrics say, "Huh?"
