Song Parody Fragments:

"Vision of Love"
Better Lyrics:
We have a vision of blood
To establish an Islamist country
We have a vision of blood
To follow what the Prophet has decreed

Let the infidels scream
Satanists all filled with religiosity
To stay alive
Convert to Islam or pay a fee
Excuse us, we have to kill some Yazindis...
Original Lyrics:
I had a vision of love
And it was all that you've given to me
I had a vision of love
And it was all that you've given me

I've realized a dream
And I visualized the love that came to be
Feel so alive
I'm so thankful that I've received
The answer that Heaven has sent down to me

Submitted by: Robert D. Arndt Jr.
Better Lyrics:
Slave driver you crack the whip at me,
If I do not pick cotton consistently,
Oh why did you have to go and purchase me?
And I just knew right from the start,
You'd abuse me after dark
Original Lyrics:
Heartbreaker you've got the best of me,
but I just keep on coming back incessantly,
Oh why did you have to run your game on me?
I should have known right from the start,
you'd go and break my heart
Submitted by: Brady Turner

Funniest Song Lyrics:

The Funny Lyrics:
See right through you like you're bathing in windex
Why They're Funny:
Wtf??? so if you use generic widow cleaner she won't see right through you???
Submitted by: Rob Waters

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

The Repetitive Lyrics:
On and on...
Why They're Repetitive:
First of all, Mariah is copying Minnie Riperton. Second of all, it makes my Mom mad at Mariah's whiney voice when I listen to her (I have this CD). Third of all, Mariah repeats this, like, 80 times in this over 5 minute long song. It takes up almost all the time and makes me go crazy.
Submitted by: Amy
"Without You"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
I can't live
Why They're Repetitive:
If you can't live, why aren't you dead?
Submitted by: Misty

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And it's just like honey when your love comes over me
Why They're Nonsensical:
Firstly, it seems Mariah has some strange Cleopatra-like complex by bathing in honey. Secondly, now these lyrics don't make sense on their own, so they must mean only one thing...and I'll only say this: ' better have a thorough wash afterwards...and make sure you clean up too. Don't think the white upholstery and carpets are going to mask anything...'
Submitted by: Devil Jones
"It's Like That"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
These chickens is ash, and I'm lotion...
Why They're Nonsensical:
My friend and I have played this song over and over trying to figure out if those were the true lyrics. Now that we know they are, what in the HELL does it mean?
Submitted by: Erica
There are additional nonsensical lyrics available.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"It's Like That"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
It's a special occasion - Mimi's emancipation
Why They're Inappropriate:
One of the ultimate irritants of any song is when the artist name-drops or at least alludes to the album title for no reason whatsoever and little Mariah here is no exception. I bet if I listen next time I'll hear someone in the background saying 'available in all record shops now!' afterwards.
Submitted by: Devil Jones
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
While horses round.......
Why They're Inappropriate:
This song is supposed to be about butterflies, not horses, yet she mentions them anyway (as if they're more important than the butterflies)... and what makes it even worse is she had about 4 horses and 2 butterflies in the video.
Submitted by: Chyelle
There are additional inappropriate lyrics available.

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Touch My Body"
The Dirty Lyrics:
touch my body, tussle me around play with me some more
Why They're Dirty:
well... what do you think play with me some more means? :P
Submitted by: togepi bundr
The Dirty Lyrics:
And it's just like honey
When your love comes over me
Oh baby I've got a dependency
Always strung out for another taste of your honey
It's like honey when it washes over me
You know sugar never ever was so sweet
And I'm dying for you cryin' for you I adore you
One hit of your love addicted me
Now I'm strung out on you darlin'
Don't you see every night and day
I can hardly wait for another taste of honey
Honey I can't describe how good it feels inside
Why They're Dirty:
Mariah has never clarified what this song is truly about.....and come on! Mariah talking about how sweet her lover tastes? 'Honey comes over me'? 'How good it feels inside'? The song sounds like it's about being a sex addict in several ways. I was 13 yrs old when that song came out, and even then, I was a bit perplexed, thinking, 'I know she changed her image to be all hip-hop and edgy, but that's way too sexual!'. Definitely one of her dirtiest songs...not that it's a bad thing!
