Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Buck Rodgers"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Drink cider from a lemon
Why They're Inappropriate:
Apparently in north devon, they cut lemons in half, scoop out the flesh and drink cider from it. apparently it has a nice tangy taste.
Submitted by: Matthew
"Buck Rogers"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Get a house in Devon,
Drink cider from a lemon
Why They're Inappropriate:
Well, firstly, it really doesn't sound right and why would you? Also it's got to be 'eleven' rather than 'a lemon' because in the south west of England (where Devon is and where I live) life is rather laid back and lazy so from eleven would meen getting up late too! Get me?

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Buck Rogers"
The Lyrics:
He's got a brand new car.
Looks like a jaguar.
It's got leather seats.
It's got a CD player.
It should be "He has a brand new car. Looks like a jaguar. It has leather seats. It has a CD player. "have got" and "has got" are redundancies. Only "have" and "has" are necessary.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Just a Day"
The Lyrics:
Waking up at 12 in my clothes again
Feel my head explode from a night of gin
Another night out late
I don't wanna drink, don't wanna be a clown
Gotta get my feet back on the ground
Before it pulls me in
An upbeat rock track about feeling like a liability to one's friends due to alcoholism and depression.
Submitted by: Nat

From the band's 1999 album "Yesterday Went Too Soon"; it starts around five minutes after the end of the last track, "Paperfaces".
