Real Lyrics -> Dumbest -> Paul McCartney

These are lyrics by Paul McCartney that we think are kind of dumb.

Chaos And Creation In The Backyard album at
Paul McCartney's, "The Other Me"
The Dumbest Lyrics:
I know I was a crazy fool
For treating you the way I did
But something took a hold of me
And I acted like a dustbin lid
Why They're Dumb:
'And I acted like a dustbin lid?' Come on Paul! You wrote 'Hey Jude' and 'For No One,' for god's sake! Let me present to you: TOP 5 LYRICS THAT WOULD FIT A WHOLE HELL OF A LOT BETTER THAN 'ACTED LIKE A DUSTBIN LID': 5. And I acted like I never did 4. And my feelings, I will never rid 3. And I asked you for a couple quid (well, it's better than dustbin lid!) 2. And then I finally hit the skids 1. And I acted like a little kid For some strange reason, though, I think that it was poetic license. With all the lyrics he could've written, I think he chose it for a reason. He was rather brave for putting those lyrics down, at the risk of being ridiculed (and boy oh boy was he ever!). As for me, dustbin lid is part of my vocabulary. As an expletive. ('YOU STUPID DUSTBIN LID!')
