Taxing Lyrical

View the shortlist of the worst song lyrics … ever!

#1 Des’ree – Life

I don’t want to see a ghost
It’s the sight that I fear most
I’d rather have a piece of toast
Watch the evening news

Des'ree - Life

# 2 Snap – Rhythm Is A Dancer

I’m as serious as cancer
When I say Rhythm is a Dancer

Snap - Rhytm Is A Dancer

# 3 Razorlight – Somewhere Else

And I met a girl
she asked me my name
I told her what it was

Razorlight - Somewhere Else

# 4 ABC – That Was Then But This Is Now

More Sacrifices than an Aztec priest
Standing here straining at that leash
All fall down can’t complain, mustn’t grumble
Help yourself to another piece of apple crumble

ABC - That Was Then But This Is Now

# 5 U2 – Elevation

I’ve got no self control
Been living like a mole now
Going down, excavation
High and high in the sky

You make me feel like I can fly, so high elevation …

U2 - Elevation

# 6 Toto – Africa

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what’s right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti

Toto - Africa

# 7 Oasis – Champagne Supernova

Slowly walking down the hall
Faster than a cannonball
Where were you when we were getting high?

Oasis - Champagne Supernova

# 8 Duran Duran – Is There Something I Should Know?

And firey demons all dance
When you walk through that door
Don’t say you’re easy on me
You’re about as easy as a nuclear war

Duran Duran - I There Something I should Know?

# 9 Human League – The Lebanon

Before he leaves the camp he stops
He scans the world outside
And where there used to be some shops
Is where the snipers sometimes hide

Human League - The Lebanon

# 10 Black Sabbath – War Pigs

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses

Black Sabbath - War Pigs
