Naff Lyric

Middle%20of%20the%20road
My pulchritudinous wife and I were discussing naff song lyrics. This quickly became an impromptu competition to see who could recall the naffest. Who do you think won?

“Darlin’, I’m feeling pretty lonesome, I’d call you on the phone some, but I don’t have a dime.” Darlin’ – Frankie Miller.

“And the operator says forty cents more for the next three minutes, please.” Sylvia’s Mother – Dr. Hook.

“But you could have heard a pin drop, when Tommy stopped and locked the door.” Coward Of The County – Kenny Rogers.

“Although you’re only three.” Save Your Kisses For Me – Brotherhood of Man.

“No no no no no no no no no no there’s no limit” No Limit – 2 Unlimited.

“Chirpy chirpy cheep cheep” Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep – Middle Of The Road.

I suppose it’s not just the words but also the delivery; the importance they are afforded; the faux intensity within the song. I could eat alphabet spaghetti and shit better lyrics.

  1. I love this Mick…it’s so cute…lyrics are a little like tumbleweed…not everyone is James or Bob…John and Paul…probably a good thing…all that poignant verse could easily put us over the edge.

    Oh, and I couldn’t bring myself to even give you a Like…sorry Mick.

  3. Arkenaten says:

    Chirpy effin cheap cheap ….I now want to cut myself….Whoa is moi.

I will be pleased to read your thoughts, even if you don't agree.
