Goodmorning Starshine(I believe the singer's Oliver) features what have to be the laziest lyrics ever, behold:

Gliddy glub gloopy
Nibby nabby noopy
La la la lo lo
Sabba sibby sabba
Nooby abba nabba
Le le lo lo
Tooby ooby walla
Nooby abba naba
Early morning singing song

It's so WTF? How much hash do you have to smoke to come up with a doozy like that?

But am I being fair? Is the chorus to MMM MMM MMM MMM by the Crash Test Dummies even lazier?

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

Seriously, that's all there is. Couldn't be arsed to come up with even four little single syllable words.

Lazy Lyrics Meme starts here...

Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell
Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell

Do me a favor
Open the door
...Let 'em in

Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na. Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na.
Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na. Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na.
Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na. Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na.
Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na. Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na.
Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na. Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na.

I can't for the life of me remember the name of the song, but it's something by Journey. I swear they sing na na na na na for like 3 minutes.

You're a vegetable/ you're a vegetable/ still they hate you
You're a vegetable/ you're a buffet/ still they eat you

All from the wizard Micheal Jackson - You Gotta Be Startin' Something

That and any song that ends a verse in Yo! IF I didn't already hate rap, that bit of lyrical genius killed it for me.

"Yummy yummy yummy, I got love in my tummy, and I feel like a-lovin' you."

1910 Fruitgum Company / Ohio Express / The Archies



Yeah, it was actually recorded by more than one artist. :Wha:

Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na. Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na.
Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na. Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na.
Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na. Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na.
Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na. Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na.
Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na. Na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na na, na na na na na.

I can't for the life of me remember the name of the song, but it's something by Journey. I swear they sing na na na na na for like 3 minutes.

It was Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin', and even though they end with that nugget, the song in a whole is a rock anthem IMHO. But then I'm just damned nestalgic.

Hey, Jude by the Beatles. The last two hours of that is "nah nah nah" BS and I can't reach for the tuner fast enough when the first notes drift out of my radio.

Beyond the vacuous nonsense lyrics, I'll nominate two bands who have produced the most incomprehensible drivel for lyrics that purport to mean something, almost anything by either one:

America
Steve Miller Band

It was Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'...
Every time I hear that song, I remember a girl dancing to those strains while shedding her clothes. That memory is the only thing I like about Journey.

I'll go out on a limb and recommend Clapton's Layla, the most insipid lyrics and repetitive piano number that goes and on and on and...

Elton John, Your Song - "If I was a sculptor ... but then again, no"

What???? Was he too lazy to grab an eraser and get rid of that line, so he just left it in there and actually sang it? I guess you gotta respect a guy who sticks with his first draft, but come on.

The Sweater Song.

It doesn't even have verses! It's too cool to do anything other than talk until it gets back to the chorus.

I don't remember The Archies doing that, and I had all their albums.

Um. er. I mean, I've seen all their albums. Yeah. That's it.

And really, I like that song. I have it on one of my 60s compilation cds that I burned from downloading illegals songs off the net.

Um. er. What I mean is...

You realize, Ferret, that "the Archies" were/was just one guy with a lot of recording equipment and time on his hands. I don't remember him doing "Yummy Yummy" either. His biggie was "Sugar Sugar", which for some incomprehensible reason was the favorite American pop tune among the Vietnamese the entire year I spent there (1969-1970).

I just had a flash from the eighties... Tony Basil's "Shopping From A to Z." That was so painful that I felt like jamming nine inch nails into my eardrums.

And speaking of Nine Inch Nails, how about that crap Trent Rezner dropped on us a couple of years ago, something about biting the hand that feeds while being on your knees? What happened to the morose, near-suicidal madman that pumped out the Downward Spiral?

Let's be fair now. Listening to The Steve Miller Band for the lyrics is like watching porn for the dialogue. I listen for the guitar yeah!

As for yummy yummy yummy. Yeah, it's lazy as hell, 'till someone tells you what it's actually about(filthy), then it's oddly inspired. Kinda like Turnin' Japanese.

LIAR! You take that back! The Archies were Archie, Reggie, Jughead, and Betty and Veronica! I know! I watched their show every Saturday morning.

I like Tom Petty, but this verse of "Mary Jane's Last Dance" sounds like it came straight out of his copy of The Big Book of Rock Lyric Cliches.

Well I dont know what Ive been told
You never slow down, you never grow old
Im tired of screwing up, Im tired of goin down
Im tire of myself, Im tired of this town
Oh my my, oh hell yes
Honey put on that party dress
Buy me a drink, sing me a song,
Take me as I come cause I cant stay long

It wasn't so much a case of lazy lyrics as a case of drugged out lazy singing.
