Funniest Song Lyrics:

"I Was Made To Love Her"
The Funny Lyrics:
I was made to love her,
worship and adore her,
hey, hey, hey.
Why They're Funny:
This is funny because the title line is ambiguous. I suppose it is meant to say "i was made (i.E. created) for the purpose of loving her. but the title line by itself could just as easily mean "i was forced to love her". as chance would have it, I've always tended to hear it the latter way, and think he's saying that he was coerced into loving her, before I catch myself and think, oh but that isn't what the song means to say.
Submitted by: Patricia Mcclure
"Ebony Eyes"
The Funny Lyrics:
when she smiles, it seems the stars all know, 'cause one by one they start to light up the sky
Why They're Funny:
so, does she only smile in the evening?

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"Isn't She Lovely"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderfull
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love
Why They're Repetitive:
This is pretty much the entire song.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Golden Lady"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Looking at your hands
Hands can understand
Why They're Nonsensical:
First of all, Stevie, you're blind, so you can't see somebody else's hands. Second of all, hands are incapable of understanding.
Submitted by: Isac
"Golden Lady"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
To see the heaven in your eyes is not so far
Why They're Nonsensical:
First of all, Stevie, you're blind; and second of all, one does not have heaven in one's eyes.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Sir Duke"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Music knows it is and always will
Be one of the things that life just won't quit
But here are some of music's pioneers
That time will not allow us to forget
Why They're Misrhymed:
'Quit' and 'forget' don't really rhyme, now do they?
Submitted by: Robert Ballinger
"I Just Called To Say I Love You"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I just called to say 'I love you'
I just called to say how much I care
I just called to say 'I love you'
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart.
Why They're Misrhymed:
I know Mr. Wonder can rhyme better than that. It sounds like he's not even trying.
Submitted by: soul

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"As"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4.
Why They're Inappropriate:
I'm sorry, the rest of the song sounds good it's just that this line doesn't really sound appropriate in the song. He keeps saying how he'll love her until the world ends and the mountains crumble and the sun dies and then he has to say something about math. I'm sorry I'm not trying to insult Stevie's song writing ability it's just that this sounds like something I would write (which is never a good thing!)

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"My Love Is On Fire"
The Dirty Lyrics:
I want to feel your love
I need to feel your love mixed with mine
Why They're Dirty:
Maybe I'm miscontruing the context here but the last line especially is so disturbing it made me nauseous thinking about it - because standalone and stripped of that particular potential connotation, it doesn't make any sense. Can we say 'too much information'? Especially from Mr. Wonder, I'm surprised.

Foreign Language in English Songs:

"Ngicuelela - Es Una Historia - I Am Singing "
The Lyrics:
Ngiculela ikusasg
Ngliyacula nao thando

Es una historia de manana
Es una historia de amor
Es una historia que amor reinera
Por nuestro mundo

Why:
The fisrt verse is in Zulu, the second in Spanish and the third in English. The verses are not translated literally. For example, the first line of the verse in Spanish means "It's a story of tomorrow" whereas the line in the English verse is "I am singing of tomorrow."
