Dumbest Lyric... Ever?


Was just listening to the radio and heard what may well be the worst example of songwriting um, ever. But in fairness to John Bon Jovi, auteur behind the "Have a Nice Day" album, I do think this is the type of thing that requires a little comparative analysis.

So today begins the "Dumbest Lyric... Ever" contest. Beat this one, and, in addition to winning a real sense of personal satisfaction, you will gain my undying amazement (next we'll sponsor the "worst prize... ever" contest.)

Here's what you'll need to best:
"I hijacked a rainbow and crashed into a pot of gold."
(From "Who says You Can't Go Home?")

Good luck finding a better example of badness, you'll need it.

When I'm feeling blue
All I have to do
Is take a look at you
And then I'm not so blue

And out comes a man from Mars
And you try to run but he's got a gun
And he shoots you dead and he eats your head
And then you're in the man from Mars
You go out at night, eatin' cars
You eat Cadillacs, Lincolns too
Mercurys and Subarus
And you don't stop, you keep on eatin' cars
Then, when there's no more cars
You go out at night and eat up bars

Blondie - "Rapture"
