I just came across some more bad lyrics;
This, from Peter Frampton's "All I Want To Be (Is By Your Side)"

Do what you do don't bring me down
I went to the doctor he's just another clown
Don't stand alone you might turn to stone
I wish there was a pill for that - you're on your own

Shake me down you wanna put me on the ground
There's money in my pocket I won't make a sound
Run me over or pick a four leaf clover
Now they cut the lights down, this record's going slower

More from Leatherlungs Lou Gramm and Furriner

Fill my eyes
With that double vision
No disguise
For that double vision

This doesn't make any logical sense. First of all, is the double vision good, or bad?
Second, if the singer has double vision, what need for a disguise? He's already handicapped, right? And who's pulling a disguise on him? THERE'S NO ONE ELSE MENTIONED IN THE SONG.

Oh, who gives a sh/t.

Yeah. "Before we do, you'll have to get away from you know who".

No, she doesn't know. Neither do we. Who the h/ll is "you know who"?

Are you old enough? Will you be ready when I call your bluff?

No, no. She's not bluffing! She's moving so fine. She sure looks hot to him. Song can't even get its cliches straight.

She's gonna love me in my Chevy van, and that's all right with me.

Don't forget the little-known follow-up, "I got busted for statutory rape in my Chevy van, and that s//ks."

Tony Orlando and Dawn - "Knock Three Times"

"One floor below me, you don't even know me, I love you"
"Oh, baby, knock three times on the ceiling if you want me . . ."

If the girl "doesn't even know him" how does he expect her to signal him that she "wants" him?

Yeah. What a genius. GO DOWN TO HER APARTMENT, CLOWN, AND INTRODUCE YOURSELF.

You think she wants evicted on a noise complaint?

"Twice on the pipe if the answer is NO!"

How'd he know she smoked a crack pipe?
Did he smell it coming up through the ceiling?

Yeah, you're gonna get a lot of rejections if you've been on the pipe twice.

Get into rehab!

Of course, Bryan Adams can sing about whatever decade he wants to sing about, however, his poetic license doesn't keep him from sounding stupid when he sings it. I've always thought that song would have been a lot better if he had sung "Summer of '79".

If Lou has a fever of 103, why would any chick wanna be with him, anyway?

"Tell me, are you hot mama? you sure look that way to me"

Didn't the doofus just answer his own question? Does he really need the chick to tell him whether she's hot or not?

If you suddenly found out Adams had lied about his age and he'd been born in 1952, not 1959, what happens then? Does it suddenly make you like the lyric? It's the exact same damn song, exact same damn performance. If your interpretation of a piece of art is completely dependent on what you know about the performer's personal life, then you have no sense of judgment at all.

I always assumed he was trying to tell us about the summer he discovered sex. I never once thought he was singing about 1969. 79 wouldn't get that oh-so-subtle entendre across.

Truth to tell, though, I didn't listen to the song long enough to know WHAT it was about.

"Seventy-nine" also doesn't scan.

I always thought it was about finding music and having a great summer, playing in a band, getting the fringe benefits, (wink, wink) of a rock star. Then he says they wouldn't have gone far, it was fun. Anyway it was my wild summer of '89 when I remember hearing this song on the radio (OMG) all the time! I liked lots of songs with stupid lryics back then, just give me some guitar. ;)

Fair enough. Frankly, it's not one of my favourite Adams songs, either.

I never liked 'Run to You' either! Some guy trying to make excuses for his cheating. Just pick one!

We're just ordinary average guys
Ordinary average guys
And every Saturday we work in the yard
Pick up the dog doo
Hope that it's hard

Joe Walsh - Ordinary Average Guy
(And I like this song, the guy is a great songwriter/musician, it's still a terrible line.)

I actually like that line--it's a perfect example of the dry wit Joe so frequently used.

Like any great humor, there's a kernel of truth at its core. Do you have a dog?

"Remember when we lost the keys
And you lost more than that in my back seat"
