Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Hold On"
The Funny Lyrics:
Hold on! - You've got to love me when I want you to
Hold on! - I'm gonna love you when I want to
Why They're Funny:
You could say this is insulting to his girl-friend, but I feel it comes off so blatant it's just funny...

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"I'm So Glad"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
I'm so glad, I'm so glad, I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad
Why They're Repetitive:
Not that it's a bad song (I actually prefer Deep Purple's version to the Cream version), but it's undeniably repetitive.
Submitted by: Joe Bloggs
"Child in Time"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Sweet child in time
You'll see the light
Why They're Repetitive:
Well, the dude says the entire verse, like, 5 times! It's got slightly different wording, but it's still in the repetitive category in my opinion.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Black Night"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Black night is not right
I don't feel so bright,
I don't care to sit tight.
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
that I'm free, free to be me
Why They're Nonsensical:
Not much of a focus in the line of images here. In fact, the band were pressed into writing a plausible single, cause although they had done a killer of an album ('In Rock') there was nothing that would catch instant airplay. So they went to the studio in a huff, Ritchie and Roger came up with the backing track - and then (as Roger Glover tells the story) the band would try to come up with the kind of banal lyrics that would befit the single - and rhyme with 'black night'.. 'I don't feel too bright' somebody muttered - right, in it goes!

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Highway Star"
The Dirty Lyrics:
I love her
I need her
I seed her
Why They're Dirty:
There's only one way a guy can "seed" a girl (well, more than one, but they all use the same male body part)...
Submitted by: kasumi
"Speed King"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Do a little rock, do a little roll
Gonna have a party to save my soul
Why They're Dirty:
Bet you saved it. But what's even better, the working title of this song was 'Kneel And Pray' - a reference not to attending church, but to giving head! Someone at the EMI made the band change the title, but on the jubilee edition of 'DP In Rock' you can actually hear an engineer say 'Alright, gentlemen: Kneel And Pray, take one'

After thirty-six years, 'Made In Japan' is still the yardstick for live hard rock/heavy metal albums. The first four and a half minutes of this track stomp all over the studio version... and then it devolves into a quarter- hour of incoherent instrumental noodling. You have to be pretty stoned to listen to this one all the way through; kinda makes me wonder where their heads were at when they performed it.
