Worst Lyrics in the World

As voted for on BBC6, the top ten run-down of the worst lyrics ever (also undoubtably Brit-biased I warn you, but they're still pretty damn bad).

10: Black Sabbath - War Pigs
Generals gathered in their masses,
Just like witches at black masses.



9: Human League - The Lebanon
Before he leaves the camp he stops,
He scans the world outside,
And where there used to be some shops,
Is where the snipers sometimes hide.


8: Duran Duran - Is There Something I Should Know?
And firey demons all dance when you walk through that door,
Don't say you're easy on me you're about as easy as a nuclear war.


7: Oasis - Champagne Supernova
Slowly walking down the hall,
Faster than a cannonball,
Where were you when we were getting high?


6: Toto - Africa
The wild dogs cry out in the night,
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company,
I know that I must do what's right,
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti.


5: U2 - Elevation
I've got no self control,
Been living like a mole now,
Going down, excavation,
High and high in the sky,
You make me feel like I can fly,
So high,
Elevation


4: ABC - That Was Then But This Is Now
More Sacrifices than an Aztec priest,
Standing here straining at that leash,
All fall down,
Can't complain, mustn't grumble,
Help yourself to another piece of apple crumble


3: Razorlight - Somewhere Else
And I met a girl,
she asked me my name,
I told her what it was.


2: Snap - Rhythm Is A Dancer
I'm as serious as cancer,
When I say Rhythm is a Dancer.


1: Des'ree - Life
I don't want to see a ghost,
It's the sight that I fear most,
I'd rather have a piece of toast.



*shudders* Anyone able to beat those for sheer awfulness?
