Quotes:

I know what you must be saying to yourselves.
If that's the way she feels about it, why doesn't she just end it all?
Oh, no, not me.
I'm not ready for that final disappointment.
'Cause I know, just as well as I'm standing here talking to you,
That when that final moment comes and I'm breathing my last breath,
I'll be saying to myself…
Is that all there is?

(Is That All There Is? - written by Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller - from 'Is That All There Is?' - 1969)

Song Titles Not Used as Lyrics:

Song Name
Comments & Submitter Name
"The Star Carol"Begins "Long years ago on a deep winter's night," An alternate "title" might come from those opening words, but I've never heard it called anything other than "The Star Carol". The lyrics do refer to a star, namely the star of Bethlehem, but the word "carol" is never found therein. - Ava Murphy

Story about this misheard lyric by: Joe Haynes

I thought I heard the lyrics when my wife and I were at a seafood restaurant that plays lots of real old big band stuff. I swear Peggy Lee said 'melanoma', although that would be a perfect song title here in Florida.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Happiness Is Just A Guy Named Joe"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
But when he kisses me, it's Christmas everywhere
Why They're Nonsensical:
Peggy was certainly expressive in the lyrics to this song, intended to show the woman character's love for 'Joe.' But the phrase 'It's Christmas everywhere' makes no sense. How could it be Christmas somewhere at one time and somewhere else at another time?? It must have been chosen just for prosodic reasons...

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"I'm A Woman"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
I can scoop up a great big dipper full of lard from the drippings can,
Throw it in the skillet, go out and do my shopping,
Be back before it melts in the pan.
Why They're Inappropriate:
It's definitely not a good idea to go shopping while a "great big dipper full of lard" is heating up in a skillet!

Scary Song Lyrics:

"My Man"
The Lyrics:
He isn't true,
He beats me, too.
What can I do?
Oh, my man, I love him so.
Why:
I was reminded of this when I read another entry on Amiright - one under "Banned Songs", about a Garth Brooks video being banned for depicting domestic violence, But seems there wasn't a problem with singing about domestic violence when this came out. But back then, refer to a couple in bed, or say "hell" or "damn", and censorship was inevitable. Go figure, Every generation has it things that it strains at, its things it sees other generations as prudish for, and its things that it glosses over as "no big deal".

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Fever"
The Lyrics:
Thou givest fever When we kisseth
Why:
The Old English declensions would be just like modern English for 'we'. 'Thou givest' is fine, but it should be 'When we kiss'.
