Lyrics That Require a Comment


Timbaland: The Way I Are
Can you handle me the way I'm are?

Cherdo: I are. Or I be? My grammar is not as good as yours; I not "famous."



Madonna: I Love New York
I don't like cities, but I like New York,

Other places make me feel like a dork.

Cherdo: To clarify, ALL other places might give you that feeling if my estimates are correct. And I believe they are pretty darn close. The good news is it's not because they are cities...not that at all. Travel freely. Nice outfit.




Van Halen: Why Can't This Be Love?
Only time will tell if we stand the test of time...

Cherdo: You are so deep, Van Halen. So very, very deep. Only another deep, deep hole will show how deep your current hole is.



Cold Play: Fix You
Lights will guide you home, and ignite your bones.

Cherdo: If lights ignite your bones, stay away from lights. Try LED. Not really a rule, but definitely a guideline.





Steve Miller Band: The Joker
Some people call me the space cowboy yeah, Some call me the gangster of love...

Cherdo: No one calls you the space cowboy or the gangster of love, Steve. Not really. Pinky swear.





Rihanna (featuring Drake): What’s My Name? 
The square root of 69 is 8 something, right? Cause I’ve been tryna work it out.
Cherdo: How about 8.3066238, Drake? You know when I stopped tryna work it out? When the calculator popped up the numbers 8.3066238. I'm gonna go with that.


Taylor Swift: Love Story
Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter; And my daddy said stay away from Juliet.
You're giving me a literary headache. Romeo goes with Juliet; a little diddy by Shakespeare. The Scarlet Letter is more Hester and Dimmesdale. Just because Daddy said to stay away from Juliet doesn't mean you can jump novels. And by the way, why was Daddy worried about you and Juliet? If he's Romeo and you're "scarlet letter," problem solved. He's in Italy and you're in colonial Massachusetts. This relationship isn't going to happen. Shake it off.



Live: Lightning Crashes
Lightning crashes, a new mother cries; her placenta falls to the floor.
I need to know: is this a cautionary hurricane story or a violent, anti-feminist tornado?




Nicki Minaj: "Stupid Hoe"
You a stupid hoe, You a...You a stupid hoe, stupid, stupid.
I'm going to pretend it's a garden tool. A garden, garden, garden tool...tool, tool. (Insert the appropriate level of snark here...this was actually a song that made the Top 100? Wow. Just my opinion...wow.)

  1. Good morning, dear Cherdo!

    I be sleepy but I be here still. If this was a BOTB, the last song would be Shady's Pick To Click. That's a deep hoe ditty and I dig it deeply, hoe hoe hoe. Didn't Andy Williams sing that one originally?

    I'm happy to see you back to your snarky self, dear friend Cherdo. Say hello to the G-man for me and let's have a great week.

    God bless!

    1. Ah, traveling times...sure to whip it, whip it good.

      I'm beginning to feel my snark come back as I rest up and it's a good thing. I might not get back to five a week, but I'm making a little progress toward normal.

      Gonzo says, "Hey, Shady!!" Have a good week, buddy!

  4. Well, I guess in the music world it is really just important for things to rhyme, not make sense. What is that post above from Seetha E? Hope Gonzo is doing well.

    1. Don't you find it odd that here we are in 2015, years of feminism push behind us, and people are willing to accept that kind of flotsam as entertainment? Really? I think it's cray cray (and I say that just because younguns' cringe when they see someone over 25 say it...yep, that's how I role).

  10. This is soooo awesome!!! The jumping novels cracked me up. I wish I could remember the song I heard the other day. I was cringing. It was terrible and that's probably why I didn't make a point to remember. I will admit though that Lightning Crashes is seriously one of my most favorite songs of all times. Placenta and all. I love Live and Ed K who was lead singer.

    1. Sometimes I wonder if anyone is listening to the words any more? I don't know about you but I want to know the lyrics and a good llyric will totally sell it for me.

      You watch out for that lightning, though.

  11. I actually thought the Van Hagar lyric was pretty cool. Redundant, maybe, but cool. Sure beat the crap outta Jump, and it hit #1 too.

    I love the Live song, but lately have wondered if that lyric was one of those vaginal mesh issues...

    1. I'm sure that the subliminal message to the Live song is to sue the medical supply company.

  12. Oh I am laughing so hard right now. Madonna looks like Ernie Schwartz dressed up as Madonna. Has anyone told her she looks like an idiot? The "Shake it off" comment made me spit my juice out...maybe that was too much info eh? This reminds me of Steven Allen who would talk about the lyrics from songs. he had me crack up when he read the lyrics straight faced from a Beatles song..."She's just 17...you know what I mean.."

    1. Juice spitting is the ultimate compliment for me, Birgit, ha ha ha. I thank you!

    1. ...and I dare someone to call me a garden tool...why would anyone think that equates "talent"?

      Thus, I embrace geezerdom. If I had to be a youngun' again and that was all that was on the music buffet, I'd be a librarian and beat the radio with a hammer.

      Hope your doing well. I AM working on my 25...

  14. You just made my day with this post. How accurate and funny. Glad I'm not the only one who was annoyed by the scarlet letter reference. "Shake it off" indeed. LOL

    You need to do a sequel to this post. There are so many songs that need a bit of work, grammar wise.

    1. Every now and then, I have to ask musical questions and make comments. I'm pretty sure it will happen again (actually, I had enough rants for two more even now!).

      If I write your rants you'll get rants about my rants that you'll want to rant about, too.
