"Dont sleep in the subway"
Better Lyrics:
Dont steel things from Subway,
Darling put back all those plastic trays
Original Lyrics:
Dont sleep in the subway
darling Dont stand in the pouring rain
Submitted by: Mike Florio
"Downtown"
Better Lyrics:
Well baby you are a mess,
So now I gotta get up & I gotta get dressed and go
Downtown, Borrow a car & go
Downtown, get to the bar & go
Dowtown, there's gonna be a fight now.....
Original Lyrics:
Well maybe I'll see you there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go
Downtown, things will be great when you're ,
Downtown, Don't wait a minute more
Downtown, you're gonna be alright now......

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"My Love"
The Funny Lyrics:
My love is warmer that warmest sunshine,
softer than a sigh.
my love is deeper than the deepest ocean,
wider than the sky.
Why They're Funny:
When one reads these lyrics in print, they sound like an exceedingly romantic expression of tender love. but what is funny is how petula clark is so the wrong singer for the song. she sings these romantic lines in a vindictive tone that sounds more like she's about to go ballistic and cuss somebody out than like she's expressing sweet love. she might as well be saying, "you listen to me --i love you, dammit!

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Downtown"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you,
Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Sorry, but no two people are just alike.
Submitted by: Karen Smith
"Downtown"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Why They're Nonsensical:
The sounds of traffic (running engines, honking car horns, squealing tires, etc.) are not music, even at the time this song was made.
Submitted by: Candy Welty
There are additional nonsensical lyrics available.

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"Downtown"
The Insincere Lyrics:
