Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Do Wah Diddy"
The Funny Lyrics:
Clicking her fingers and shuffling her feet
Singing Do-Wa-Diddy, Diddy Dum Diddy Do
She looked good, she looked fine
Why They're Funny:
(In the words of Peter Kay!) How could she look good shuffling her feet, clicking her fingers and singing nonsense words? You try that down the local market and you'll either get locked up or beaten up.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Doo Wah Diddy Diddy"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
There she was, just a-walkin' down the street
Singing doo wah diddy diddy dum diddy doo

This is a song about courtship and marriage, and at each step of the process they sing "doo wah diddy diddy dum diddy doo"

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Do Wah Diddy Diddy"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I'm hers, she's mine, wedding bells are gonna chime
Whoa-oh, I knew we was falling in love
Why They're Nonsensical:
'We was...'? Plural subjects take plural verbs. Another case of bad English from the English.

"Quinn the Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I like to go just like the rest
I like my sugar sweet
But jumping queues and making haste
Just ain't my cup of meat
Why They're Nonsensical:
"Meat" instead of "tea" was used to force a rhyme with "sweet." A nice cup of ground round, anyone?

Song Lyrics That Mention Brand Name Products:

"Blinded By The Light"
The Lyrics:
And little Early Purly came by in his Curly Wurly and asked me if I needed a ride.
Product Brand Name:
Curly Wurly is a candy bar sold by the Marathon candy company. Although not as common in the U.S., it is sold in some areas (especially in the northeast, New Jersey, where Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen is from who wrote this tune). Curly Wurly candy bars are more common in western Europe and other western countries such as South Africa (where Manfred Mann is from, most of his band was from England -- therefore explaining their knowledge of Curly Wurly candy bars that The Boss wrote about).

Songs That Open With Their Titles:

"Do Wah Diddy Diddy"
Opening Lines:
There she was just a-walkin' down the street, singin' "Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do."
"Do Wah Diddy Diddy" was the only #1 for the original/1960's group of South African keyboardist Manfred Mann. Many at the time that "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" was hot on the charts, thought Manfred Mann might be British, but he wasn't he is definitely South African -- although he did have a five man combo that was composed mainly of British men. Manfred Mann also originally started out as jazz artist, but realized that to make money he might need to go into pop. "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" was also a remake of the American soul group the Exciters song written by the duo Barry/Greenwich.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Do Wah Diddy Diddy"
The Lyrics:
I knew we was falling in love
Although this was written by the prolific songwriting team of Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich, I can't help but think that these lyrics project a grasp of English that is tenuous at best!
