Dirty Song You Didn't Know Is Dirty -> Latest Entries

Backstreet Boys', "Don’t Want You Back "
The dirty Lyrics:
You hit me faster than a shark attack And you were more than just a pretty face But how you fooled me, I am still amazed But I should have know that I would be another victim of your sexuality You started going out with so-called friends Baby, do not bother telling me your reasons why
Why They're dirty:
First and foremost let me just say this song is basically about cheating. It all makes sense once you break done the lyrics and read them thoroughly. Make sense doesn’t it?? Anyway lets begin. The first four verses talk about. How one of the boys meets a girl and he had feelings for her. But if I’m correct she only used him for sexual things. Well you know what I mean... And then the girl starting hanging out with other guys. And when I mean hanging out I mean doing very questionable things. And at the end when she tries to give her many reasons why what she did. He’s not taking any of her bullshit and they ended the relationship. BTW, I did another one of these on this same page but I’m not saying which one I did HA!

Funny Song Lyric -> Latest Entries

Color Me Badd's, "All 4 Love"
The Funny Lyrics:
All... 4... Love
Why They're funny:
Toward the middle of the song, when they "draw out" the title. Even though the title appears regularly in the chorus section, meaning "all for love", I am stressing this particular part of the song since the title seems to be by itself here. The reason it sorta stands out is that it could mean "all 4 (people) love" (with love being a verb) -- a potential 'hidden' meaning -- rather than "all for (preposition) love (noun)", which is likely the intended meaning, as implied in the chorus, where it appears at the end of various phrases ("...do it all for love"). I'm placing it here because there is really no other section that it could go in.
