They can’t just be bad; we’re talking about lyrics that clearly show the lyricist didn’t put much effort in overcoming his or her writer’s block.
I got thinking about this while listening to a classic rock song I actually like very much – Journey’s “Feelin’ That Way”:
*Give me all of your sunshine,
A spark is all I need,
To take it away, all of the shadows,
Well what more can I say? *
Another one that came to mind for me was Air Supply’s “The One That You Love” – especially funny because of all of the feeling and emotion they put into the particularly lazy line:
*The night has gone,
A part of yesterday
I don’t know what to sayyyyyyy!
Don’t know what to say-a-a-hey-ay! *
Any others come to mind?
