Story about this misheard lyric by: turkoizdog

We were singing this song in Lit class; and one guy said, 'Stop! Pajama time!' We all stared at him and he was like 'What?' And we told him what the real lyrics were. He got embarrassed and said 'So you mean my entire time I've been singing the wrong lyrics?' And we were all 'Dude, the singer's name is M.C. HAMMER..'

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Can't Touch This"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Can't touch this
Can't touch this
Can't touch this
Why They're Repetitive:
Yes, we know we can't touch it! What more do you want from me. What don't you want me to touch. I didn't touch 'this' in the first place so get off my back. How many times do you have to repeat it?
Submitted by: Val R.
"U Can't Touch This"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
You can't touch this!
Why They're Repetitive:
How many times is this repeated in the song? 20? 50? 100?

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Have You Seen Her?"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Searchin' 'round the world, what more can I say?
The girl is hard to see, like an unseen DJ.
Why They're Nonsensical:
This is, in my opinion, one of the stupidest sounding lyrics ever included in a pop song. Granted, MC Hammer is hardly known for prolific song lyrics, but this particular song is supposed to come across as 'serious' -- but that 'unseen dj' lyric sounds ridiculous.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"U Can't Touch This"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Music hit's me so hard,
Makes me scream 'Oh my Lord!'
Why They're Misrhymed:
It's just stupid and doesn't rhyme.

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Have You Seen Her"
The Dated Lyrics:
I'm a keep looking
in the movies
in my car
on my stereo
On A Different World
and The Cosby Show
Why They're Dated:
Considering that A Different World and The Cosby Show exist only in reruns it's safe to say that this is the biggest reason why these lyrics are dated.

"Can't Touch This"
The Dated Lyrics:
What's it gonna take in the 90's to burn the charts?
Why They're Dated:
It's no longer the 90's
