Song Parody Fragments:

"Jessie's Girl"
Better Lyrics:
Ted Cruz is a fiend,
Yeah, endorsements are kinda hard to find
But lately his campaign's changed
With Rubio in mind
Ted Cruz has got himself a girl for an attack ad, oh what a find!

And someone recognized her with their eyes
And they remembered her soft body, exposed it!
And it did him harm, harm in the spotlight

Pulled the ad on Ted Cruz's girl!
On CNN all 'round the world
Why would he use a woman like that?
(Soft porn Star)

Being so Evangelical???
Original Lyrics:
Jessie is a friend,
Yeah, I know he's been a good friend of mine
But lately something's changed
It ain't hard to define
Jessie's got himself a girl and I want to make her mine

And she's watching him with those eyes
And she's lovin' him with that body, I just know it!
And he's holding her in his arms late, late at night

You know I wish that I had Jessie's girl
I wish that I had Jessie's girl
Where can I find a woman like that?
Submitted by: Rob Arndt

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Jessie's Girl"
The Funny Lyrics:
And she's lovin' him with that body,
I just know it
Why They're Funny:
I don't know, but this particular lyric makes the singer sound like a stalking freak. I also love it how his voice goes to a different pitch when he says 'I just know it'.
Submitted by: Miki Koishikawa

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Human Touch"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
We all need it, and I need it too.
Why They're Repetitive:
I appreciate Rick's clearing up that he himself is indeed included when he says "we."
Submitted by: Michael S.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Love Somebody"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You're undernourished and overfed
Why They're Nonsensical:
How can one be undernourished if one is overfed, which means, eating too much?
Submitted by: sXe LeXi 5X2

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"Jessie's Girl"
The Insincere Lyrics:
I wanna tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot.
Why They're Insincere:
Well, maybe if Rick had the b*lls to tell her that, he would know if the point was moot or not. As Phoebe of 'Friends' would say, 'Stop being so testosterony!'

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"What Kind Of Fool Am I"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Did it come too easy to the two of us
Did we go too wrong to ever make it right
Were we too busy checking out the left hand
That we didn't see the right
Why They're Misrhymed:
"What kind of fool" would try to rhyme a word with itself? (Even if the word is used with a different meaning each time.)
Submitted by: RJSchex
"Jessie's Girl"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I've played along with this charade
There doesn't seem to be a reason to change
Why They're Misrhymed:
Was Rick really thinking about these lyrics when he sung them?
Submitted by: rocky
There are additional misrhymed lyrics available.
