Song Parody Fragments:

"Solitary Man"
Better Lyrics:
I'm one of the few who will stand proud and say loud:
'Here am I - Sterile Guy!'
I'm lookin' so sharp in my new three-piece pinstripe
Hazmat suit-- Ain't it cute?!?
Don't give me no pills, but until no-one sneezes
Here in my face with their nasty diseases
I'll be what I am:

A sanitary man
Sanitary man
Sanitary man...
Original Lyrics:
I've had it to here - being where love's a small world
A part time thing, A paper ring
I know it's been done havin' one girl who loves you
Right or wrong, weak or strong
Don't know that I will, but until I can find me
A girl who'll stay and won't play games behind me
I'll be what I am
A solitary man
Solitary man
Solitary man

"Play Me"
Better Lyrics:
It was morning, I met her last evening
Today I woke up to find her lying
Beside me in bed. I softly said, 'I love you.'
For I've been lonely, in need of someone
She is the one, she belongs right here
And now she stirs, and my eyes meet hers
And she tells me
'You are a john, I turned a trick
My work is done, you make me sick
Pay me'
Original Lyrics:
She was morning and I was night time
I one day woke up to find her lying
Beside my bed I softly said 'Come take me'
For I've been lonely In need of someone
As though I'd done someone wrong somewhere
I don't know where
I don't know where Come lately
You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"I Am...I Said"
The Funny Lyrics:
I am I said To no one there
and no one heard at all, not even the chair.
Why They're Funny:
Boy, ole Neil was really stretching for a rhyme the day he wrote this song. I mean, does his chair normally perk up its ears when he declares his existence? It must be comforting for Neil to believe in a sentient race of anthropomorphic chairs, especially when he's struggling with his own existence so. But personally I think it would have been more characteristic and possibly more colorful and authentic if he had just said 'Not even my flares'.....Oh I know it's not nice to poke fun at Neil but he is *such* an easy target!

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Sweet Caroline"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Sweet Caroline (bum bum bum)
Good times never seemed so good...
Why They're Repetitive:
Well, that's pretty deep Neil. Good times are good. Perhaps a thesaurus would have aided you on your quest for synonyms? Or...did you forget you already used the word? Why? Why did you write something that bad?

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Song Sung Blue"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Song sung blue -- every garden grows one.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Gardens DON'T grow songs!
Submitted by: Karen Smith
"Desiree"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
It was the third of June
On that summer's day
Why They're Nonsensical:
The third of June is in the spring (in the Northern Hemisphere) or in the autumn (in the Southern Hemisphere), never in the summer.
Submitted by: Candy Welty
There are additional nonsensical lyrics available.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Play Me"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Song she sang to me Song she brang to me Words that rang in me Rhyme that sprang from me
Why They're Misrhymed:
Ungrammatical past tense of "bring." ouch! It sounds like she really "flang" herself at him.
Submitted by: cclatte
 

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"America"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Free, only want to be free we huddle close, hang on to a dream
On the boats and on the planes they're coming to America.
Why They're Inappropriate:
I understand what these lyrics mean they've just always came across as racist in a way the way there sang if you listen to the song, think about it, on the boats and on the planes, they're comin to America. I love my country but it's a horrible song IMO.
Submitted by: Random Guest
"Stones"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
...being lost is worth the coming home.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Shouldn't it be, 'coming home is worth being lost? The lyrics don't seem to add up. Also, what is it about the 'chair' in this song. A. Huxley would be proud.
Submitted by: JEaton

Dated Song Lyrics:

"If You Know What I Mean"
The Dated Lyrics:
When we gave it away, for the sake of a dream
In a penny arcade, if you know what I mean
Why They're Dated:
While the song was written from a nostalgic viewpoint, the term "penny arcade" sounds almost like the late 19th/early 20th Century. By 1976 (the year the song was released), penny arcades were mostly obsolete, mostly being replaced by pinball arcades; soon after, they became known as video arcades.
Submitted by: RJSchex
"I'm Sayin' I'm Sorry"
The Dated Lyrics:
She's sittin' up there and fumin'.
She thinks I'm something inhuman.
She'd rather be with Paul Newman.
Why They're Dated:
Since Paul Newman died in 2008, he's probably no longer a good choice as to whom she'd rather be with.

Why:
"Sang" is indeed the past tense of "sing", but that doesn't mean that "brang" is the past tense of "bring"

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"Sweet Caroline"
NBC News during the last decade sometime one night was ending their installment chock full of tales of hate, war, corruption and arrogance with some "cutesy-wutsey" heart-tugger like they always do. They reported that Neil Diamond's hit "Sweet Caroline" was inspired by Caroline Kennedy (daughter of President JFK). The song was written around 1960 when Caroline wasn't even a teenager yet. And on top of that - they call this bit of trivial chicken doo-doo NEWS???
