Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Girls Just Want To Have Fun"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Some boys take a beautiful girl
and hide her away from the rest of the world.
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they wanna have fun.
Why They're Nonsensical:
How can you take a beautiful girl and hide her away from the rest of the world and have *her* be the one to walk in the sun?

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Girls Just Want To Have Fun"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Some boys take a beautiful girl and hide her away from the rest of the world.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Sure, some boys take a beautiful girl, just like some boys take another cute boy and some girls take a beautiful girl and so on... but, um, Cyndi, isn't "hiding them away from the rest of the world" sometimes considered kidnapping?

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"She Bop"
The Dirty Lyrics:
We-hell-I see them every night in tight blue jeans-- In the pages of a Blue Boy magazine
Huh, yea, I wanna go south n get me some more
They say I better stop--or I'll go blind..
Why They're Dirty:
OK so the entire song is about masturbation, we know that. What people seem to miss is that the second line of the song mentions Blue Boy magazine which is a prominent gay men's porn mag. So now we know what she is masturbating too (Go Cyndi). Later she mentions going south and the old myth about going blind. Further on she talks about not being able to stop (almost an addictive quality to it). Its a great song, not at all subtle - yet so many people missed it. I love it.

"She Bop"
The Dirty Lyrics:
She bop--he bop--a--we bop
I bop--you bop--a--they bop
Be bop--be bop--a--lu--she bop,
I hope he will understand
She bop--he bop--a--we bop
I bop--you bop--a--they bop
Be bop--be bop--a--lu--she bop,
Oo--oo--she--do--she bop--she bop
Why They're Dirty:
It's no wonder this song is at the bottom of the Parent's Music Rresource Center's Filthy Fifteen. It's pretty obivous that this song is about masturbation. The chorus makes it that obvious.

Real Places Mentioned in Songs:

"Hole In My Heart (All The Way To China)"
The Lyrics:
This hole in my heart that goes all the way to China
Why:
A reference to the country of China, even though the notion of a "hole all the way to China" is a cliched hyperbole. It is an expression that I've often heard in the U.S. at least, where it seems to be used as if China represented the complete opposite side of the world from the U.S. It actually does not, by quite a long way. For most of the U.S. at least, the actual antipode (compete opposite side of the Earth) is somewhere in the Indian Ocean, closer to Australia than to China.

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"She Bop"
I'm not sure what category this belongs to but here goes: I take it we all know what this hit's lyrics are about. In the video where Cyndi appears before a judge in a "morality tribunal" courtroom (on a "bopping" charge no less) the judge opens a thick lawbook. On the cover it says "The Big Bopper" which is the stage name of J.P. Richardson - who died in the 1958 plane crash that also took the lives of Buddy Holly and Richie Valens.
