The Lyrics

For Alvin Rhodes, who called the original song his Number 1 most-hated tune of all time. It was written by Alex North (music) and Hy Zaret (lyrics), with hit versions by the Les Baxter Orchestra, Al Hibbler, Roy Hamilton, June Valli and Harry Belafonte (all in 1955), a hopped-up doo-wop version by Vito & the Salutations in 1962, and the Righteous Brothers (actually a Bobby Hatfield solo) in 1965, which became a hit again after it was used in the 1990 film "Ghost." If you heard it as often as I heard it then, you'd wish you were a ghost, too!
It sucks!
I'm snarling!
My nose
I have to clutch
a long, smelly time.

This slime
goes by
so slowly
and slime
can spew
so much.
It's true
a crime!

I hate
this song.
I hate
this song.
keep this song

Homely DJs play
this awful song
Think this song is gay.
You agree?
You agree?
I'll be throwing up.
Wait and see!

It sucks!
I'm snarling!
My nose I
nose I have to clutch!
A long, smelly time!

This slime!
Goes by!
So slowly!
And slime
can spew so much!
It's true!
A cri-i-i-i-i-i-i-ime!

hate this song!
God keep
this song
And I didn't like "Ghost," either!

"My nose/I have to clutch/a long smelly time." If it stinks so much you actually smell it, you must TRULY loath it. LOL, 544

Totally agree on this one, MP. The one I posted yesterday (shameless plug) is worse (IMO) though. Check it out, if you would....555...

"You Beat Me To The Punch" (Mary Wells, 1962)... Five punches, actually... Slowpoke tortoise's response to alvin's comment should make it here tomorrow, maybe.... Just "ghost" to show you... Good job.

I swear my skin crawls every time I hear this song. Especially when restaurant entertainers who can never do falsetto to save their lives screech: I nee-hee-heeed!!!!! YOUR LOVE!!!!! Been thinking of doing a parody on that issue. Maybe I will later today.... Thanks for the inspiration. 555s

I didn't always hay-yay-yay-yate this song, but after "Ghost" brought it back, I got so sick of it. Most of the songs I hate are becuase I hear them over and over and over again, my friend (but "Eve of Destruction" doesn't fit that category), but are also monotonous, do-do, da-do-do. I always say "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees stunted my growth. (Let's just say I'm slightly shorter than Doug Flutie.) I no longer hate this song as much as Alvin does, but I also wasn't exactly broken up when Bobby Hatfield -- or, as Kirstie Alley called him on "Cheers," The Other Righteous Brother -- died before Bill Medley (who, at least check, was still alive).
