Band Name Origins:

  • I just wanted to comment on LeLe's because Left-Eye got her name from wearing a condom over her left eye to encourage safe sex. Submitted by: Aurial
  • TLC was orriginally Tionne Lisa Crystal But when Crystal left after a Disagreement with Manager Pebbles. Pebbles wanted to keep the name so when they Found Rozonda Thomas, she was Dubbed Chilli, because she was the "spicy one". then Tionne began using her Nick name T-Boz, meaning tionne, the boss. And Lisa began Using Left eye when her boyfriend Andre Rison observed that her left eye was slightly larger then her right. So this is TLC And T. L. C. the greatest group ever. Submitted by: Kristin

Song Parody Fragments:

"No Scrubs"
Better Lyrics:
A veg is a plant that tastes like crap
No matter how healthy it is
My parents just wanna give it to me
But I sit there and
I say, no
No, I don't want no carrots
No, I don't want no broccoli
And no, I don't want no sweet corn either
No, don't even think of peas
And no, I don't want no veg
A veg isn't gonna find its way into me
Sitting on the right-hand side
Of my juicy pork rind
Trying to get in me
I don't want no veg
A veg isn't gonna find its way into me
Sitting on the right-hand side
Of my juicy pork rind
Trying to get in me
Original Lyrics:
A scrub is a guy who thinks he's fly
HE's also known as a bustar
He's always talking ‘bout what he wants
And just sits on his
So, no, I don't want your number
No, I don't wanna give you mine and
No, I don't wanna lead you nowhere
No, I don't want none of your time and
No, I don't want no scrubs
A scrub isn't gonna find his way into me
Hanging on the passenger side
Of his best friends ride
Trieng to holler at me
I don't want no scrubs
A scrub isn't gonna find his way into me
Hanging on the passenger side
Of his best friends ride
Trying to holler at me

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"No Scrubs"
The Funny Lyrics:
I don't want no scrub,
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me,
Hanging out the passenger side,
Of his best friends ride,
Trying to holla at me.
Why They're Funny:
She's getting hit on by a loser who tries to act like he's all hard but is really just a loser who lives with his momma, ain't got a car and the one girl that is high enough to go out with him, he doesn't show her any love....
Submitted by: ALV
"Baby, Baby, Baby"

As long as you know that I can have any man I want to
That is actual and factual.
Why They're Funny:
talk about being big-headed!!!

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"No Scrubs"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
No, I don't want your number,
no, I don't want to give you mine,
no, I don't want to meet you nowhere,
no, I don't want none of your time.
Why They're Repetitive:
Yeah. We already know what kind of guy you don't want. Now would you mind telling us what kind of guy you do want?
Submitted by: Celeste

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Unpretty"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
But if you can't look inside you (find out who am I to)
Be in the position to make me feel so damn unpretty
Why They're Nonsensical:
These lines contradict everything else in the song. If it's the surrounding environment making this hypothetical 'you' feel unpretty, then shouldn't this be 'who are they to'? This section makes it sound as if all the misery and pressure is self-influenced and inflicted. Very very puzzling...
Submitted by: Devil Jones
"Unpretty"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You can buy your hair if it won't grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up that Mac can make
Why They're Nonsensical:
just plain old bad!

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Dear Lie"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Get outta my mouth
Get outta my head
Get outta my mind
Stop putting words in my head
Why They're Misrhymed:
I don't know the nature of the rhyming scheme here but 'mouth' and 'mind' don't rhyme. Then to exacerbate the growing void in rhyming integrity, they end up rhyming 'head' and 'head' together. And to add insult to injury, the rest of the lines in the chorus don't even bother to rhyme anymore, with 'mouth', 'trouble', 'life' and finally 'lie' being strung together. To think the verse lines at least had some relation, this is like a series of very off-key notes.

Insulting Song Lyrics:

"No Scrubs"
The Insulting Lyrics:
If you don't have a car and you're walking
(Oh yes son, I'm talking to you).
If you live at home with your momma.
(Oh yes son, I'm talking to you).
If you have a shorty and you don't show love.
(Oh yes son, I'm talking to you).
Wanna get with me with no money,
oh no, I don't want no scrub!
Why They're Insulting:
There are some men who are broke or close to it that have heart. This song is just telling they want only perfect men. This is why Sporty Theivez made a parody called "No Pigeons".
Submitted by: Paul Warren
 

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Red Light Special"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Baby it's yours
All yours
If you want it tonight
I'll give you the red light special
All through the night
Baby it's yours
All yours
If you want it tonight
Just come through my door
Take off my clothes
And turn on the red light
Why They're Dirty:
Quite self-explanatory, huh? I mean, what could "red light" possibly bring to your mind rather than X-rated stuff?

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"No Scrub"
The Lyrics:
I don't want no scrub
Why:
It should be "I don't want a scrub". "I don't want no scrub" would actually mean that you do want a scrub.
