Song lyrics that get your goat
I posted the following 'complaint' in the Music Room, and only got a few responses. My mistake - this is The Place Where The Language Lovers Go.
As readers, do you find yourself listening to the lyrics of songs and cringing at some of the howlers? For example, I bought the excellent Eric Clapton CD "Me and Mr Johnson" for DH, but really wanted to cross out the title and amend it to "Mr Johnson and I" in big black marker pen...
To me, Dylan's 'Lay Lady Lay' is a good song for the chicken coop, while Clapton's 'Lay Down Sally' could be sung to the giant gorilla who is climbing up the side of the Empire State Building with Charlie Brown's little sister in his sweaty palm.
For more song lyrics to make your English teacher cry, listen to Oasis ("take that look from off your face"), the Rolling Stones ("hey, you, get off of my cloud") or the 1990s hit by Space ("the female of the species is more deadlier than the male").
What are your pet hate bad or stupid lyrics?
