I was thinking about silly lyrics and which are the silliest.
Of course there are the ones like “Drop-kick me, Jesus, through the goalposts of life,” but I don’t think those were meant to be serious.
There are the ones that make me want to slap the writer and/or singer, like every part of “Having My Baby.”
But the best one might be
“Leather boots are still in style for manly footwear; Beads and Roman sandals won’t be seen.”
In the first place, the idea of a country-boy type saying any part of that sentence, other than “boots,” is snicker-worthy.
In the second place, beads aren’t usually considered “footwear.”
Lastly, the notion that a Roman soldier was less “manly” than a guy who sings for a living is ridiculous.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner.
