Funniest Song Lyrics:

"My Oh My"
The Funny Lyrics:
Gotta steal from the rich when they don't know I'm coming
Why They're Funny:
The whole song is funny, supposedly some medieval love song, but this line cracks me up.
Submitted by: Kristen
"Freaky Friday"
The Funny Lyrics:
Nothing left but this note you got,
you suck
Why They're Funny:
This song just seems random, and because of that the whole thing is funny.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Barbie Girl"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Come on Barbie, Let's go Barbie
Why They're Repetitive:
The boy in this song, who is 'Ken', repeats the lines: 'Come on Barbie, let's go Barbie' over and over again. However, he says something different at the end of the song, 'Well Barbie we're just getting started' or something among those lines.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Happy Boys And Girls"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Try it with an eagle it will make you look so nice
and if you start to warm you could further break the ice
Why They're Nonsensical:
ok, I know that English probably isn't Aqua's first language, but this is just ridiculous. Try what with an eagle? Warm what? I love Aqua, but this makes absolutely no sense at all!
Submitted by: Irkenwocky
"Cartoon Heroes"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Here comes Superman
from never never land
Why They're Nonsensical:
Hello? Peter Pan is from never never land, not Superman
Submitted by: Rebecca Gale

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Barbie Girl"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Life in plastic
It's fantastic
Make me walk, make talk
Do whatever you please
Why They're Inappropriate:
The first part is encouraging young girls to have plastic surgery (like a barbie doll) and the second part is saying that girls should be played with (either sexually or manipulated) by men and that's not a good message for young girls.
Submitted by: Louise Mills

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Lollipop (Candyman)"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Sweet things, I will never get enough.
If you show me to the sugar tree,
will you give me a sodapop for free.
Come with me Honey

Bite me, I'm yours - if you're hungry please understand.

I wish that I were a Bubble Yum,
chewing on me baby all day long.
I will be begging for sweet delight,
until you say I'm yours tonight.
Come with me Honey,
Why They're Dirty:
The whole song is about oral sex, even the video has phallic symbolism
Submitted by: The Man
"Barbie Girl"
The Dirty Lyrics:
I'm made of plastic,Fantastic
You can brush my hair
Undress me eveywhere
Why They're Dirty:
In this song they are saying off to da side that Barbie is one of the reasons that Beverly Hills has hills(hehehe) And she must be a street 'ooker if you can undress her everywhere....

Song Lawsuits:

"Barbie Girl"
Mattel Toys LTD sued Aqua and their record label for soiling the Barbie brand's "wholesome" image. The judge threw the case out because the song was protected under free speech.
Submitted by: Celeste
"Barbie Girl"
The lyrics of the song are about Barbie and Ken, the dolls made by Mattel. Both the song and its music video feature Lene Nystrom as Barbie and Rene Dif as Ken. As such, the lyrics drew the ire of Barbie's corporate owners. Mattel stated in their lawsuit that the band depicted Barbie as a sex object, although Judge Alex Kozinski ruled the song was protected as a parody under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.
