“Have a baby by me! Be a millionaire!” Favourite Lyrics of 2009

Ridiculous. Sublime. 2009.

"ah
lalalalalalalala
lalalalalalalala
"

"alalalalalalalalala"

I go ooh ooh, you go ah ah
lalalalalalalala
lalalalalalalala
.

I wanna wanna wanna get get get what I want

Don’t stop

Give me give me give me what you got got

Cause I can’t wait wait wait any more more more more

Best opening lines award goes to ‘Untouched’ by The Veronicas

I’ve been devoting myself to you Monday to Monday and Friday to Friday

Not getting enough retribution or decent incentives to keep me at it

I’m starting to feel just a little abused like a coffee machine in an office

So I’m gonna go somewhere closer to get me a lover and tell you all about it

I had never thought of a coffee machine in an office being abused, but, dammit, the woman is right. ‘She Wolf’ by Shakira

There isn’t much that I feel I need:

a solid soul and the blood I bleed.

But with a little girl, and by my spouse

I only want a proper house.

‘My Girls’ by Animal Collective

I can remember days of sun, we knew our lives had just begun

We could do anything, we’re fearless when we’re young

Under the moon, address unknown, I can remember nights in Rome

I thought that love would last, a promise set in stone

‘The Way It Used To Be’ by Pet Shop Boys

"Have a baby by me!"

Have a baby by me, baby! Be a millionaire

Have a baby by me, baby! Be a millionaire

Have a baby by me, baby! Be a millionaire

Be a millionaire, be a, be a millionaire

At least he’s honest. ‘Baby By Me’ by 50 Cent feat. Ne Yo

Rah-rah-ah-ah-ah!
 Mum-mum-mum-mum-mah! 
GaGa-oo-la-la!
 Want your bad romance.

‘Bad Romance’ by Lady GaGa

I have done what you suggested
And the world has paid attention to my belief

But I’m still alone

So millions think I’m ugly now

But it’s the same old story

Until I sing the song

‘The Glare’ David McAlmont & Michael Nyman (the track is about Susan Boyle)

Don’t you know sometimes when it feels like someone put a hex on you?

Well I felt like that, I was blaming myself

I was cushioning my fall.

Hold my arms back when they beat me

Leave me in the ditch when they kick me

Sever my limbs and deceive me

Sometimes life isn’t easy

‘Sometimes Life Isn’t Easy’ by Mew

Well I’ve been thinking about,

And I’ve been breaking it down without an answer

I know I’m thinking aloud but if your love’s

Still around why do we suffer?
 Why do we suffer?

‘Dear God (Sincerely M.O.F.)’ by Monsters of Folk

Bell x1: Just picking your knickers from your arse.

Still you’re the chocolate at the end of my Cornetto

I love the way your underwire bra

Always sets off that X-ray machine

‘The Great Defector’ by Bell X1

That’s what I read in that Sunday magazine

The anvil is falling, falling on your head

You’re just picking your knickers from your arse

Like you’re playing a one stringed harp

‘One Stringed Harp’ by Bell X1

We’re all bulimic

But keep forgetting to puke

‘One Stringed Harp’ by Bell X1 (again)

People hear me, who can know (who can know)
if our time on Earth’s the soundcheck or the show?
Ask a good man, and there’s no doubt
He’ll have too much on his mind to work it out.

‘Ride’ by Prefab Sprout

What’s that sound?
I like that sound.
I love that sound.
“It’s the sound of my shoes”

‘Shoes’ by Tiga

I understand if she know how to please you

Kid CuDi: Irresistable to women

I understand if she lovin’ and tease you

In my right mind I should probably leave you

Why can’t all three of us be peoples?

A paean to the menage-a-trois in ‘She Came Along’ by Sharam feat. Kid CuDi

So, what wordsmithery ticked your fancy or made you wish you were deaf this year?
