Story about this misheard lyric by: Archibald III

I first heard this song on a mix CD that was made for me as a 7 year old. I didn’t know the official song title until at least 6-7 years after I had my mix CD. This is how little me heard it back then.

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?
Submitted by: P4
There are additional repetitive lyrics available.

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.
Submitted by: Michael S.

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.
Submitted by: Matthew Pitcher

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

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

Remember that cartoon that aired for a single season that starred M.C. Hammer as a superhero with magical shoes? Good! I don't either. It was, actually, a cartoon "acid trip" that never should have made it past the brainstorming sessions however it did air from 1991-1992. Sorry, Hammer!

"Being Broke"
