Bad lyrics

I love music. Really, I do. But there are some songs that no matter who sings them, I cannot enjoy. If the days of the week, spelling or math are involved, I despise it. I feel like I lost some brain cells for listening to songs like this. I don’t need you to spell things out or tell me things I learned in elementary school. Have you no real writing skills? What a cop-out way to write music. The worst part is many people like the songs. Here are several examples in case you live under a rock and have never heard such a song. Actually, that would be better.


Mandy Moore – I could break your heart any day of the week

I could break your heart any day of the week.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.
I’ll make you nervous.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday.
Do not you disturb us.
Sunday rolls around- but that’s another story.
It gets a little boring.

Rebecca Black – Friday It’s Friday, Friday

Gotta get down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend
Friday, Friday
Gettin’ down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend

Allison Iraheta – Friday I’ll be over you

Monday, Tuesday we were cool
Wednesday I found out 'bout you
Caught my heart by tellin' lies
You weren't what you advertised
'Cause you got me to forget me
Oh, you know that's true
Yeah, you got me to forget me
So Friday I'll be over you


Fergie – FergaliciousI'm the F to the E, R, G the I the E
And can't no other lady put it down like me
T to the A to the S T E Y girl you tasty, T to the A to the S T E Y girl you tasty
D to the E to the L I C I O U S, to the D to the E to the, to the, to the, hit it Fergie

Ashlee Simpson – L.O.V.E.

Oh did you hear me say?
Oh did you hear me say?
I'm talking bout

Allison Iraheta – D is for Dangerous

A is for all I want
B is for battling
C is for can't stay longer
'Cause I want you so madly

E is for no escape
'Cause I don't wanna leave you
F is for falling
Fast with no parachute

G for get outta here
It's really too much
H is for how do I leave
When I'm addicted to you?

I is for insane
It smells like danger
J is for jump off the ship
Or the storm will take you

K is for killing me
L is for I can't leave
Oh, 'cause I'll never make it
If I'm not living on the edge
(Apparently she doesn’t know the rest of the alphabet. Why stop at this point?)

The only song that gets a pass is Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” because, let’s face it, we all needed to learn how to spell B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Admit it. When you spell it, you think of that song.


Kelly Clarkson – Dumb plus dumb equals you

Simple math
Our love divided by the square root of pride
Multiply your lifeless time
I'm going out of my mind
It was heaven when I finally figured it out alone
Dumb plus dumb equals you

I don't know much about algebra, but I know one plus one equals two
Beyonce – 1+1

2gether – You + Me = Us

I know my calculus
It says U + Me = Us
We're 2Gether
Girl, algebra or trigonometry
Could never equal up to what you do to me
So let's integrate
Don't differentiate
If you were in my class
There ain't no way I could pass
I hate English, Gym,
And not to mention
I can't even afford to pay my attention
No philosophy could ever come between us
But we'll always have our calculus
