Song Parody Fragments:

"Hey, Soul Sister"
Better Lyrics:
The way you catch cholera
Watching you is the only drug I need
So gangsta, I'm so thug
You're the only one I'm dreaming of

You see, I can be myself behind a tree
In fact there's nothing I can see
I want the world to see you be with cheese
Original Lyrics:
The way you can cut a rug
Watching you is the only drug I need
So gangster, I'm so thug
You're the only one I'm dreaming of

You see, I can be myself now finally
In fact there's nothing I can't be
I want the world to see you'll be with me

Hey toe blister

Ain't that Mr. Mister

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Meet Virginia"
The Funny Lyrics:
She smokes a pack a day
oh wait that's me well anyway..
Why They're Funny:
I just think it's funny how he gets himself mixed up with this woman.
Submitted by: Calop
"Meet Virginia"
The Funny Lyrics:
Wears high heels when she exercises,
ain't that beautiful?
Why They're Funny:
The first time I heard this line, I got mental pictures of an 80's woman with those freakishly large slouch socks, skin tight leggings, and pumps... getting all 'aerobicized' and trust me that's more hilarious than beautiful.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Calling All Angels"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
I won't give up if you don't give up
I won't give up if you don't give up
I won't give up if you don't give up
I won't give up if you don't give up
Why They're Repetitive:
Sounds like they ran out of lyrics and had to release the song before they could think of new ones. Otherwise a pretty good song, but this part really sounds stupid.
Submitted by: UrbanPeaceArtist
"Calling All Angels"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
And I wonít give up if you donít give up
I wonít give up if you donít give up
I wonít give up if you donít give up
I wonít give up if you donít give up...
Why They're Repetitive:
Why four times? This does not enhance the song at all!
Submitted by: Alec
There are additional Train repetitive lyrics available.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Play That Song (2010s - use COUNTRY)"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Hey, Mr. DJ, when you gonna spin it?
My baby's favorite record, she's been waiting for a minute.

Somebody needs to learn patience. The DJ's been working for A MINUTE, and you're already hounding him about a song he hasn't played yet?!
Submitted by: Michael S.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Meet Virginia"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Well she wants to live her life
Then she thinks about her life
Pulls her hair back as she screams
I don't really wanna live this life
Why They're Misrhymed:
We know life rhymes with itself but how lazy can you get when writing a song? Here's proof.
Submitted by: Alec
"Drops of Jupiter"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's time to change, hey, hey
Why They're Misrhymed:
This is simply blatant idiocy. Don't get me wrong, the song thereafter is alright (not perfect, but nothing to point a finger at), but come on; the first two rhymes of the song and they're way off from even a remotely flowing sound! I wonder if it sounded good to them?
Submitted by: James Castaneda

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Drops Of Jupiter"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Tell me, did the wind sweep you off your feet?
Why They're Inappropriate:
I feel this line is inappropriate because there isn't any wind in space.
Submitted by: Quyjibo
"Save The Day"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Street smart like a Courtney Love,
Can't get enough Hollywood stories of,
Anybody famous that can make her feel like they're all kinda friends in a way
Why They're Inappropriate:
I'm absolutely mad for this song and I love this band, but I wish Train didn't try to be cool by making references to celebrities in their songs since It'll be outdated in a couple of years. That's a shame considering Train's best music has a kind of 'timeless' classic rock sound.
