    Lyrics are a funny thing... They could make absolutely no sense but if the song hits me anyways... there's something there.

    or maybe there's something in my hitter box?

    I dunno.

    Do you guys remember a Delay?, Off Beat Records resident Synthpop band in the mid 90's. They were a constant source of cheesy lyrics, none better than the song 'Underdoc' (which, I believe was about Doc Martins boots!) and it's fantasticly mundane lyrics. Here's the chorus:

    "I put my boots on, Take some fruit,
    Drink a glass of milk while I'm looking for my keys"

    Lacking insperation were you?

    From "AEIOU Sometimes Y" by EBN OZN"

    'But you know I was really flipped out you know and she asked me if I'm angry or something, I said of course I'm angry man this isn't high school or anything you know.
    So I'm feeling really cavalier and I say ah...call me if you want to...huh, yeah...call me if you want to.
    So she rang me up and she says, "Hey! Do you wanna go out?" Huh, Do I wanna go out?'

    Do you think they got 'song' confused with 'anicdote'?

    More from EBN OZN:

    'So We go back to my place - we get high - we get really into each other man.
    It was love about to happen...I'm serious.
    And then all of a sudden she gets up and she says, she says "Hey, I really gotta leave"...Damn!'


    That's beautiful isn't it?

    Twisting the bones until they snap, I scream but no one knows

When you compare them to almost any of the English-as-a-second-or-third-language Euro synth bands we discuss here, they're miles ahead. DM, when you look past the cliches, still provide pretty original lyrics more often than not.

    I don't have a set of lyrics to quote back to you guys 'cause I don't really know any of the songs well enough, but I'm sure most of the ones you guys are listing here are bands I'd throw on the list, like Beborn and Icon...
    This is just my opinion, but when English isn't the band's primary language, I cut them a lot of slack lyric-wise. Sure, they might be leaving themselves open to criticism by singing cheesy lines, but then again, maybe they're trying to make their music more accessible to a bigger audience. With that said, I did once hear some song (think it might have been an Asian band) where pretty much all the female vocalist sang for several minutes was, "I am a super girl" over and over...er, have to do better than that, sorry. As for DM, yes they for the most part don't belong on this thread...except for "What's Your Name?" Don't get me wrong, I'm a DM fan and actually love that song to pieces because I think the lyrics are so bad they're good!

    When I put the DM lyrics there I wasn't saying all DM lyrics are bad, just those two lines! And they are well cheestastic lines. This is a bad lyric thread and bad lyrics belong here, and those are bad lyrics. So whether DM belongs on this thread or not...those two lines do!
    My take on the English-as-second-language thing in relation to this thread is, if English if your first language you belong on this list even more 'cos you should know better! This is a thread for lyrics so bad they're good and whereas we could fill it up with poor translations or poor grasps of English, when an English speaking band pens a duff line is it all the more bitter sweet!

    In my own humble opinion, I think you've got to call a spade a spade. I think it's fair to cut a little slack on grammar (English is difficult), but when you sing about showing girls your laser beam...you're asking for it.

    Agreed...normally DM is pretty reliable. I think Neil Tennant, for example, can get away with a bit more because he's so tongue-in-cheek, with such attitude. I mean if he delivered the trousers line, he could probably make it work - that's just Neil.

    Pet Shop Boys have the "Later Tonight" verses...

    That boy never cast a look in your direction
    Never tried to hook for your affection
    Dresses like the mod of your invention, tall and proud
    He is the head boy of the school of thought
    That plays in your intentions, night and day
