Dated Song Lyric -> Latest Entries

Conway Twitty's, "Red Neckin' Love Makin' Night"

Hello baby, Conway here
Let me lay this in your ear
Get ready to go, but we gonna roll about sundown
I got some boogie woogie music on the old 8-track
Yeah, I got the top laid back
And we'll go cruisin' and we'll go foolin' around
Why They're dated:
Any song that mentions 8-track players, especially in a positive light, is showing its age.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Cheryl Lynn's, "Got To Be Real"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Zoo-hoo, zoo-hoo, zoo-hoo,
I got to have it, baby.
Why They're Nonsensical:
This is repeated a few times during the bridge part of the song (although some radio stations play it totally instrumentally). I have no idea what the hell it means; maybe she couldn't think of a proper filler and decided to use random scat syllables? They don't mean anything. And what is "it" that she's "got to have"? (She doesn't specify.)

Weird Al Yankovic's, "Ricky"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Oh Ricky, what a pity, don't you understand
That every day's a rerun and the laughter's always canned
Why They're Insincere:
The laughter on "I Love Lucy" wasn't canned; the show was actually taped before a live audience.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Nothing More's, "Jenny"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
A little sleep, a little slumber
A little folding of the hands
Left you weak, left you hungry
When there's supply, you still demand
You're beginning to drag the ones you love down
Will this phase ever end?
A thousand arms to hold you
But you won't reach for any hands
Why They're Misrhymed:
Rhyming "ends" with "hands" is excusable, but using the latter twice in quick succession--essentially rhyming it with itself--is another matter.
Submitted by: Jonathan S.

Green Day's, "Nobody Likes You (Part 3 of Homecoming)"
The Insulting Lyrics:
Nobody likes you
Everyone left you
They're all out without you
Having fun
Why They're Insulting:

Inappropriate Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Kim Wilde's, "Kids in America "
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
New York to East California,
There's a new wave coming, I warn ya!
Why They're Inappropriate:
There's not really an "east" California, per se. There's a north and a south. New Wave really took off in the States in the Los Angeles area. There's not much to speak of in eastern California, but wilderness.
