Top Ten Cheesiest Song Lyrics

CrimsonShark
Some songs can have rather questionable lyrics that would either make your head shake or just have you laughing in disbelief on how bad and cheesy they could sound. Go ahead and explain what song cringes you the most?

The Top Ten

1 "She got a big booty, so I call her Big Booty - Birthday Song (2 Chainz)

They saw me drink bleach so now they call me bleach drinker

Derogatory term aside, is that even an appropriate song to play for someone's birthday to begin with? Also, that naming choice is so uninspired and bland. Calling someone "Big Booty" because, well, she has a big booty. You've got top be really uncreative on that one 2 Chainz. - CrimsonShark

Yeah, well my mom is my mother so I call her Mom - Mcgillacuddy

Dang, 2 Chainz is disgusting in this one. What is it with this guy and a woman's behind?! - PhoenixAura81

2 "She wants to break up every night. Then tries to F**k me back to life" - Break Up Every Night (The Chainsmokers)

Either this is a break-up song, or that this song is talking about necrophilia. Well then, I guess sexual intercourse can apparently resurrect someone. God what a terrible song it is, and so is the album that it came from. - CrimsonShark

Girlfriend must have some strange kinks if she has the ability to resurrect you by doing it. - Swellow

Just to think that the singer could even hold a date for that long...

Don’t forget the one from Bloodstream about him being "f-ed up, faded, and so complicated". That one is a real doozy. - DCfnaf

3 "It's Everyday Bro with that Disney Channel flow" - It's Everyday Bro (Jake Paul)

I do think "England is my city" is cheesier and worse, but these lyrics ALSO MAKE NO SENSE! The entire song is one of the worst songs I've ever listened to. - PhoenixAura81

And now we have another example of why Disney channel stars usually turn out bad in the long run. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Jake Paul is the worst human alive since Justin Beiber - Whywhat

Robert Mugabe, Kim Jong-un, and the leader of ISIS are all worse, and they are alive. - 445956

Oh god, I wish he never should've create his songs. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

4 "Sometimes we swim around, like the Dolphins in the Ocean of our Hearts" Every Other Time (LFO)

Am I supposed to believe there are dolphins swimming under my heart? Does a mammal generate my heartbeat? And LFO was a band that people would crave over during the early 2000s, so this song was a common occurrence. It was cool for its time (I suppose), but now, its aged badly and its lyrical content is now a laughing stock once you start dissecting it. - CrimsonShark

You do realize the guy who sang this is dead, right? - 445956

LFO in general have garbage lyrics. - DCfnaf

What?

5 "Holy (3x) and I'm High On Loving You" - H.O.L.Y. (Florida Georgia Line)

This is why the country music gag is prominent on Many profile pictures - SpectralOwl

Can't you get any more pretentious. Comparing loving someone to getting high on drugs via acronyms is such a pathetic and unnecessary move. Then again, epic chessiness is what is expected in Bro Country songs these days. - CrimsonShark

6 "You make my crazy little heart go Boom!" - Boom (Simple Plan)

I do like Simple Plan, and yes,there are some genuinely good songs in their earlier discographies. This song is bad, plain and simple, and it disappoints me because in a time where we have come to expect bands to mature with lyrics, Simple Plan have apparently regressed. Many love songs are cheesy, but they can be enjoyable or even good songs. With Simple Plan, a band that's been around for a decade since the release of their debut album, I expect maturity, not this. - CrimsonShark

Hearts do not explode. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

7 "If the light is off, then it isn't on" - So Yesterday (Hilary Duff)

Isn't this a parody of "with the lights out, it's less dangerous"? - Alkadikce

Wow! I had no idea! - 3DG20

I felt this - LilPumpTheGod

Obvious! - Userguy44

8 "Me plus you, that equals better equations, we must do subtraction of your clothes" - Riverside (Let's Go) (Sidney Samson ft Wizard Sleeve)

Lmao, I gotta try that on someone, so smooth. - Undistinguished

First of all, bad math pun. Second of all, this isn't EVEN MATH! Third of all, GROSS! - PhoenixAura81

Sounds like a frat boy trying to be all sexy and just coming off as embarrassing in the end. - DCfnaf

"Let's trade math equations, baby" - Rocko's Modern Life, 1993-1996 - xandermartin98

9 "No ONE can ever take them down; the power lies on their SIY-E-IY-E-IY-E-IY-E-IY-E-YIDDDE!" - Power Rangers Theme Song (Super Sentai)

Chewing The Scenery much? - xandermartin98

10 "Lucky that my breasts are small and humble, so you don't confuse them with mountains" - Shakira, Whenever, Wherever

WHy would you talk about that?

I love Shakira, her voice, and her music, but I hate these lyrics. God the song is great too. - PhoenixAura81

It really pains me to like a song even though I know the lyrics blow - Mcgillacuddy

This lyric really just speaks for itself. - Swellow

The Newcomers

? "She's got legs... like an airship, She's got an arse.... like coal tip, She's got tits... just like hot air balloons" - Nodding Donkey Blues (Iron Maiden)
? "Made my drive shaft crank. Made my pistons bulge. Made my ball bearing melt from the heat" - Mechanix (Megadeth)

The Contenders

11 "I'm never gonna dance again; my guilty feet have got no rhythm; though it's easy to pretend, I know you're not a fool" - Careless Whisper (George Michael)

RIP George Michael - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

12 "My style is dope, phat in which today we're gonna bake a cake that looks rich!" - Cheap Cheap's Rap (Parappa The Rapper)

Does this make sense?

Actually "RICH DOPE PHAT" - xandermartin98

13 "He has no style, he has no grace; this clown has a FUNNY face!" - DK Rap (Nintendo)

HE CAN HANDSTAND

IF HE NEEDS TO - xandermartin98

14 "Last night you were in my room, and now my bedsheets smell like you; every day discovering something brand new; I'm in love with the shape of you" - Shape Of You (Ed Sheeran)

Some of the cheesiest, most perverted lyrics from a usually decent artist. - 3DG20

Either she had perfume on and Ed recognizes it, or, bluntly put, she just straight up masturbated on his bed - Mcgillacuddy

Also some of the creepiest - xandermartin98

That was molestation and perverted. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

15 "Me not working hard? Yea right! Picture that with a Kodak. And better yet, go to Times Square, take a picture of me with a Kodak." Give Me Everything (Pitbull)

What's worse about this line is that Kodak has been outdated before this song was made. Get with the times Pitbull! - Mcgillacuddy

Okay, some Pitbull songs can be enjoyable to an extent, but there's a measure to how cheesy one could get. And my God, Pitbull displays a whole lot of materialism right there. I don't care about taking a picture with a Kodak! Its honestly irrelevant for the song that you're rapping on anyway. - CrimsonShark

So...clever? - DCfnaf

Ew, Kodak Black.

No, he's referring to the camera brand Kodak. This song was released before Kodak Black even began rapping.

16 "I’d jump in front of a train for ya" - Grenade (Bruno Mars)

I'm hoping women don't find suicidal remarks in their favor attractive - Mcgillacuddy

I sure wouldn't - PhoenixAura81

I like this song, it is a highlight in Bruno's discography. But yeah, this lyric makes me chuckle. Bruno Mars is literally putting himself in a lose-lose situation. - CrimsonShark

Insert suicide joke here. - StevenUniverseIsAwesome

17 "The square root of 69 is 8 something, right? Cause I've been tryna work it out." - What's My Name? (Rihanna)

I'm no Maths expert, but square rooting numbers isn't hard at all during your later Math years. And yes, I know the square root to 8 is 64, but what does this have to do with figuring out someone's name? That's what makes this line more out of place to be honest. - CrimsonShark

No. The square root of 69 is 17.

This song is good but... - DCfnaf

Stop trying to pull math into dirty lyrics!
In terms of math itself. She is partially correct that the square root of 69 is 8 something. It’s 8.30662382292...
I looked that up and the three dots means more and more numbers because it’s an irrational number for the fact that it isn’t a perfect square. - PhoenixAura81

18 "As the music dies, something in your eyes calls to mind a silver screen, and all its sad goodbyes" - Careless Whisper (George Michael)
19 "Girl, you know I want your love; your love was handmade for some BODY like me!" - Shape Of You (Ed Sheeran)

Cheesy at its best. - Userguy44

This is gross and cheesy at the same time.

20 "Noah's Ark should've had a cat like yoooouuuuu....." - The Cat's Meow (Juile Stevens)

Wow, they really name-dropped and referenced a Bible story in a Barbie movie...
by the way, this song is from Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper if you're wondering which Barbie movie this song came from. - PerfectImpulseX

21 "And if you tell my heart, my achy breaky heart, he might blow UP and kill this man" - Achy Breaky Heart (Billy Ray Cyrus)
22 "Do You Belieeeve in Life After Love?" - Believe (Cher)

But this song is amazing! - PhoenixAura81

Autotune was new before Kanye West and T-Pain made Autotune more popular in the music industry. Shawty!

IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME

IF I COULD FIND A WAY-HAY-HAY - xandermartin98

23 "And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while, cause girl, you're amazing, JUST THE WAY YOU ARE" - Just The Way You Are (Bruno Mars)

Bruno Mars is one of those artists who is extremely likable regardless of how cheesy his songs can be - Mcgillacuddy

Actually mistook this for a Bieber song at first - xandermartin98

Eh, I've heard worse. - Entranced98

I like Bruno, but this lyric is still cheesy. - DCfnaf

24 "Only time will tell if we stand the test of time" - Why Can't This Be Love (Van Halen)

Didn't know Van Halen would wind up making a laughable lyric. Jeez, another basic and dumb paradox. How would time tell you that? It doesn't make any sense because Time doesn't tell about time, that's just weird. Yes, Van Halen is a legendary band, but even they could have a hidden blunder somewhere around. And this is one of them. - CrimsonShark

25 "Look at this photograph. Every time I do it makes me laugh. Like how did our eyes get so red? And what the hell is on Joey's head?" - Photograph (Nickelback)

LOOK AT THIS GRAPH! *Shows a picture of a graph with a stupid grin*

It makes sense for sure but it sucks. It can't get more clear than this really.. it's talking about a photograph and in the photograph something is on Joey's head. At least that's what I though. - EliHbk

Cocaine. - Ananya

The sheer depth of the writing is what makes this such a captivating song. Heh. Heh. Heh. - DCfnaf

26 "Release your inhibitions; FEEL THE RAIN ON YOUR SKIN" - Unwritten (Natasha Bedingfield)
27 "Riding on the range. I've got my hat. On. I've got my boots. Dusty." - I Wanna Be a Cowboy (Boys Don't Cry)

The last Metroid. Is in captivity. The galaxy. Is at. Peace. - xandermartin98

28 "R, B, Rebecca BLACK! So chillin' in the front side; in the back seat, I'm drah-vin, cruisin! FAST LANE, SWITCHING LANES, with a car at my side!" - Friday (Rebecca Black)

Man, talk about a stereotypically BLACK singer - xandermartin98

29 "I'm da sensei, you're my student, but before that, you and I are friends! We lean on each other, anyway we can; we all need love, no matter woman or man!" - Romantic Love (Parappa 2)

Eh, I've heard much campier from the franchise - xandermartin98

30 "I Said Maybe You're Gonna Be the One that Saves Me, and After All, You're My Wonder Wall" - Wonderwall (Oasis)
31 "Just as hate knows love's the cure, you can rest your mind assured that I'll be loving you always (until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky)" - As (Stevie Wonder)
32 "How could this happen to me? I've made my mistakes" - Untitled - Simple Plan

Well, at least the song is good enough, but I think the meme is outdated at this point. - CrimsonShark

So... The guy didn't name it!?

GOT NOWHERE TO RUUUN BUT LIFE GOES OOON

33 Whoa, Whoa, Who-oa, Whoa, Whoa, Who-oa - California Gurls (Katy Perry)

Also at least 500 other songs that use the exact same phrase, now known as the "Millennial Whoop", which now permeates virtually all pop music.

34 "Ooh, look what you made me do, look what you made me do, look what you just made me do, look what you just made me" - Look What You Made Me Do (Taylor Swift)

This lyric is fine, but how she sounds, just wow.

Too repetitive.

I’m too sexy for my shirt
Too sexy for my shirt
Too sexy for my shirt - DCfnaf

Yup, look at Tay's country songs. She had great stories connecting from the pre-chorus and the chorus, but this just breaks the line with that awkward chorus. Recommend Haunted though honestly. It's okay if you don't like it. It's also okay if you just listened to it some months or years ago.

35 "It could be you, or maybe you; my mind is jumping back and forth and up and DOWN" - Taste of Teriyaki (UmJammer Lammy)

Well, at least she doesn't have a fetish FOR minds - xandermartin98

36 "YEAH, I'M FREEE, FREEE FALLLING" - Free Falling (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers)
37 "When the sun shines, we shine together" - Umbrella (Rihanna)

These lyrics are quite good if you ask me.

38 "SO FINE, OH MINE! TREAT'CHA LIKE A PORCUPINE! (SAY WHAT?) I'm the kind of lover that's GOT A HEART LIKE A VALENTINE!" - Girlfriend (Kabbage Boy)

"I can fix anything...except THAT" - xandermartin98

39 "You don't know you're beautiful; THAT'S WHAT MAKES YOU BEAUTIFUL" - What Makes You Beautiful (One Direction)
40 "Would you like to ride my Rocket 69?" - Rocket 69 (Connee Allen)

Stop using methods to get in space as sexual innuendo please?! - PhoenixAura81

YES PLEASE

WON'T YOU COME AND POUR IT DOWN ON ME - xandermartin98

41 "I don't want to set the WORRRLD ONNN FIRRREEE; I just want to start a flame in your heart!" - I Don't Want To Set The World On Fire (The Ink Spots)

War, war never changes...

43 "I wish I was GIN-GER" - Rupert Grint (Parry Gripp)

Souls are for the weak - xandermartin98

44 "I'M IN LOVE WITH YOUR BODY!" - Shape Of You (Ed Sheeran)

"Objectifying girls is RUDE! We have personalities too! " - xandermartin98

45 "TEAR MY HEART OPEN, SEW MYSELF SHUT; my weakness is that I care too much; our scars remind us that the past is real; TEAR MY HEART OPEN, JUST TO FEEL" - Scars (Papa Roach)

"My weakness is that I can't do much" - xandermartin98

46 "I am the view, the root, the progress, the aggressor; I am the table! I am, I am, I am!!!" - The View (Lou Reed)
47 "Bought a one way ticket to hell and back." - One Way Ticket (The Darkness)

Ye-es... He should have bought a return ticket. - Britgirl

48 "Like amputees, we wander aimlessly, and nothing sets us free" - Truth (Yume Bitsu)

You know, because amputees are well-known for their aimless wandering. I like this album, but damn if this lyric doesn't sound like it was written in a basement by someone's stoner friend trying to sound philosophical. - BlarchBlaces

49 "Someone left the cake out in the rain, I don't think that I can take it, cause it took so long to bake it, and I'll never have that recipe again" - McArthur Park (Richard Harris)

poor guy - EliHbk

50 The night is young and we are young - Last Day Alive (The Chainsmokers)

In the words of Pop Song Professor:"Sounds like a 10 year old trying to write something they don't know about."
