Funny Song Lyric -> Latest Entries

Prince's, "Pop Life"
The Funny Lyrics:
What you puttin' in your nose, is that where all your money goes?
Why They're funny:
I've never been a Prince fan (can't stand him) but this line in this song has always made me laugh. The fact that the sound of his voice is electronically altered just makes it even funnier. Cocaine reference obviously. But seriously don't do drugs people!

Insincere Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Puddle Of Mudd's, "Hooky"
The Insincere Lyrics:
I don't wanna go to school today, I wanna go outside and play. I don't wanna go to school today, I'll stay at home and masturbate. I don't wanna go to school today, the teacher's always in my face. I don't wanna go to school today, I wanna puch the luch lady. I don't wanna go to school today, the girls are making fun of me. I don't wanna go to school today, the bullies took my lunch money. I don't wanna go to school today, what's the point? I can't get laid. I don't wanna go to school today, I never learned a goddamn thing. Hooky, hooky, hooky let's play some hooky today. Hooky, hooky, hooky let's play some hooky today.
Why They're Insincere:
They're insincere because they're a group of famous rock musicians who at the time of the recording had to be in at least they're late thirties and they're singing about playing hooky from high school.

Steel Panther's, "Gold Digging Whore"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
She's a gold digger, she's a gold digger
F**king all the white guys and all the Persians
Why They're Misrhymed:
This one is actually misrhymed for a good reason. You start off with a lump in your throat because you think they're going to rhyme it with the N-word, but that's too offensive even for Steel Panther.

The Lyrics:
Yesterday is a kid in the corner Yesterday is dead and over
