    "Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak somewhere in this town..."

    My advice to the police would be check the local prison first. I love Thin Lizzy but that is a silly lyric, Phil.

    Depends if he's talking about a town that has a plethora of prisons.

    If it's a place that has a dozen prisons or so then I would think the likelihood is much greater and he has a vaild point.

    Life - Desree

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

    Well I assume it's deliberate but... "I've been to the year 3,000. Nothing has changed but we live underwater. And your great great great granddaughter is very fine".

    It's not just the 'nothing's changed' bit. How long do these people live for the sixth generation to still be alive - and to be very fine?

    Any song by Marc Bolan with T-Rex. An example:

    "You're built like a car,
    You've got a hub-cap dynastart halo.
    Get it on, bang a gong"

    Marc Bolan at times just seemed to use any word that rhymed with any other word no matter how nonsensical it made the lyric.

    Strained rhymes always make me laugh - Alicia Keys in 'New York' rhymes bridge with fridge.
    Dancing Queen with tambourine but I suppose they can be forgiven as English is a second language.

    This Lyric has always done my nut

    Been around the world and I, I, I
    I can't find my baby
    I don't know when, I don't know why
    (She don't know why)

    Why he's gone away
    And I don't know where he can be, my baby
    But I'm gonna find him
    We had a quarrel and I let myself go
    I said so many things, things he didn't know
    And I was oh oh so bad
    (Oh she does know why FFS)

    I hate Lisa Stansfield

    I do like T Rex, but have to say some of the lyrics are lame in the extreme.

    'Well she's my woman of gold and she's not very old, a ha ha.

    Well she ain't no witch and I love the way she twitch, a ha ha

    Well she's faster than most and she lives on the coast, a ha ha.'

    Good song, awful, dumb, lazy lyrics.

    From "Bang a Boomerang" by ABBA:

    Like a bang, a boom-a-boomerang
    Dum-be-dum-dum be-dum-be-dum-dum
    Oh bang, a boom-a-boomerang
    Love is a tune you hum-de-hum-hum

    Oddly enough I like the song though.

    All ya'll can see is the back of my jersey
    Blowin' in the wind, goin' back to Jersey
    Off to Brooklyn, left you back in Jersey
    I was doin' a buck 90 like a throwback jersey

    If someone tries to tell you nothing rhymes with orange, simply use 'orange' a load of times

    I always heard the Bolan line as 'diamond star halo' - still nonsense though. Mind you, I always misheard the Simon and Garfunkel line 'Michigan seems like a dream to me now' as 'this chicken seems like a dream to me now'. Knew it couldn't be right but couldn't get past it every time I listened.

    I want a nasty little jewish princess
    With long phony nails and a hairdo that rinses
    A horny little jewish princess
    With a garlic aroma that could level tacoma
    Lonely inside
    Well, she can swallow my pride

    I want a hairy little jewish princess
    With a brand new nose, who knows where it goes
    I want a steamy little jewish princess
    With over-worked gums, who squeaks when she cums
    I don't want no troll
    I just want a yemenite hole

    In the Jungle, the mighty jungle
    The lion sleeps tonight
    A Whim away
    A Whim away
    A Whim away
    A Whim away

    Apart from the shite lyrics, I thought Lions lived on the Savannah's and plains not in the jungle

    RHCP are my favourite band, but my god some of the lyrics are bizarre..
    Sweetheart is bleeding in the snow cone
    So smart, she's leading me to ozone
    Music, the great communicator
    Use two sticks to make it in the nature
    I'll get you into penetration
    The gender of a generation
    The birth of every other nation
    Worth your weight the gold of meditation

    Oasis, lyrics from Liam........
    You live for your toys, even though they make noise
    Have you ever played with plastercine
    Or even tried a trampoline
