20 Of The Dumbest Song Lyrics Of All Time
Music is a form of artistic expression — and there is so much beauty and poetry in lyrics from great songs such as the works of John Lennon, U2 or Eric Clapton. But just as there are great music masterpieces there are even more pieces of rubbish.
Pop lyrics can go from fun, to hilarious, to just crazy or plain stupid. Meaningful lyrics are few and rare nowadays, and everyone is reduced to singing about big butts and sex. Here are the 20 dumbest song lyrics of all time.
2 Chainz – Birthday Song
‘She got a big booty
So I call her Big Booty’
2 Chainz can’t get any more obvious than that.
So Yesterday – Hilary Duff
‘If the light is off,
Then it isn’t on.’
You don’t say? We wonder how the lyricist came up with this amazing conclusion?
LOL Smiley Face – Trey Songz
‘Shorty just text me,
Says she want to sex me
LOL smiley face
LOL smiley face’
If everyone starts talking in textspeak, we don’t know what to think of humanity anymore.
My Humps – Black Eyed Peas
‘My hump, my hump,
My hump, my hump,
My lovely lady lumps,
Check it out’
From the deep and philosophical ‘Where is the Love?’ that propelled Black Eyed Peas to fame, it seems as if they’ve lost their creativity.
How to Hate – Lil Wayne
‘But Don’t f*ck up with Wayne
cause when it ‘Waynes’ it pours’
Okay, okay. Lil Wayne does make some good songs like ‘How to Love’, with meaningful and poetic lyrics. But he can get tasteless in most of his songs, particularly in ‘How to Hate’ showing his terrible use of puns.
Wonton Soup – Lil B
‘B*tches suck my d*ck
Because I look like J.K. Rowling.’
Rap songs have some really zany song lyrics, but this one — we don’t even see the relationship between sucking d*cks and the Harry Potter author. Do you?
Somewhere Else – Razorlight
‘And I met a girl,
she asked me my name,
I told her what it was’
This must be the most mundane love story ever. We wonder what they’re wedding vows will be like.
The Cheeky Song – Cheeky Girls
‘Touch my bum, this is life’
‘We are the cheeky girls (2x)
We are the cheeky boys (2x)
We are the cheeky girls (2x)
We are the cheeky boys (2x)
We are the cheeky girls (2x)
We are the cheeky boys (2x)’
Everything from start to finish is stupid and just plain cheeky. It starts with ‘ooh boys cheeky girls, ohh girls cheeky boys’ and says it like a hundred times. throughout the song. Everything is repeated and makes no sense at all. After hearing the song, it’s safe to assume that our IQ has been reduced by 10 points.
Anaconda – Nicki Minaj
‘Yeah, he love this fat ass
Yeah! This one is for my b*tches with a fat ass in the f**king club
I said, “Where my fat ass big b*tches in the club?’
And coming from U.S.A.’s ultimate female clown artist, Nicki Minaj, nothing can get stupider than her song lyrics. We thought her ‘Stupid Hoe’ was stupid and useless, but she tops herself with this new single entitled ‘Anaconda’, talking about her fat ass.
Bootylicious – Destiny’s Child
‘Cause my body’s too bootylicious for ya babe
My vibe’s too vibelicious for you babe’
Earth to Beyonce, adding ‘licious’ to any word does not make it an adjective. That’s just stupidlicious.
The Way I Are – Timbaland
‘Can you handle me the way am are?’
The lyrics of the song completely boggles us. Even the title is grammatically incorrect. Maybe they should get someone who actually stayed in school to write their lyrics.
Sexy and I Know It – LMFAO
‘Wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle yeah
Wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle yeah, yeah’
Uhmmmm… Very deep and meaningful lyrics brought to you by Red Foo and Sky Blu.
Human – The Killers
‘I’m down on my knees,
Searching for the answer…
Are we human or are we dancer?’
Beautiful melody, awesome band, great song… but no one really knows what they meant about the lyric ‘are we human or are we dancer’?
I Love New York – Madonna
‘I don’t like cities
But I like New York
Other places make me feel like a dork’
Pop songs are notorious for having cringe-worthy lyrics, even the queen of pop, Madonna, has her share of awful lyrics as well. One of them is ‘I Love New York’, where the lyricist made a lame attempt at rhyming. Think ‘mad’ with ‘sad’, and ‘New York’ with ‘dork’. Groan.
TKO – Justin Timberlake
‘She killed me with that coochie coochie coo’
This has got to be the unsexiest and funniest way to describe sex. And to think this came from someone like JT!
Kiss that Frog – Peter Gabriel
‘Let me introduce his frogness
You alone can get him singing
He’s all puffed up, wanna be your king
Oh, you can do it
C’mon lady, kiss that frog’
Using metaphors can be very tricky, but this one has got to be among the most unappealing way to compare his d*ck to a frog. And Peter Gabriel had to start it with introducing ‘his frogness’, completing it with a horrifying music video that gave us nightmares for days.
All Night Long – Lionel Richie
‘Tom bo li de se de moi ya,
yeah jambo jambo’
The lyrics of the song are pseudo-African, but the lyrics are actually just pure gibberish. Lionel Richie admits the song is all part of a wonderful joke.
Call Me Maybe – Carly Rae Jepsen
‘Before you came into my life,
I missed you so bad’
How can you miss someone if you haven’t met them yet?
Stupid Hoe – Nicki Minaj
‘You a stupid hoe, yeah you a, you a stupid hoe (3x)
You a stupid hoe, yeah you a, you a stupid hoe
You a stupid hoe you a, you a, stupid hoe, stupid stupid (3x)’
This song is a classic example of humanity gone wrong. The lyrics are repeated more than 50 times throughout the song. The song lyrics are completely ridiculous, stupid and offensive, but Nicki Minaj is a multi-millionaire.
I Am The Walrus – The Beatles
‘I am the eggman,
They are the eggmen,
I am the walrus,
goo goo gojoob’
‘I Am The Walrus’ is probably the strangest Beatles song out there. The lyrics from start to finish don’t make sense at all, and there have been several attempts from people trying to figure out the meaning of the song.
