Yeah, the right delivery can make even the most banal or absurd lyrics sound good. I love this clip from a Russian TV show which plays practical jokes on celebrities:
this episode involves hoaxing Vitas into performing Blue Suede Shoes with badly rewritten Russian lyrics, and one of the reasons it made me laugh was that despite having heard the song many times, I'd never really noticed how ridiculous the original lyrics are Laughing

The truth. A particularly good singer can sell even the worst or the most melodramatic lines out there and make them sound like dripping in passion.

There is not a damn thing wrong with sexual lyrics, good lyrics are good lyrics.  You can be just as mindless in the context of writing about politics as you could writing about sex.  It all depends on the artist and if he really is in it for making quality art.

Meh, may be simple but that song is absolutely great. The background vocals are very haunting to me for some reason, the whole song has a sort of melancholy tone to it. Anyway, yeah maybe those lyrics weren't that great but in the context of how good the song is I wouldn't say that has earned a place here, in my own opinion.

It's another case where a strong melody and good performance help listeners to overlook the terrible lyrics. If an unknown lyricist wrote stuff like that and tried to find a composer willing to collaborate, I don't think he'd get very far.

I present to you Steve Seagal.



Girl what you really want all night
Me want the buddy, make me feel nice
Boy what you really want all night
Me want the poonani, see for make nice
She want the buddy
Him want the poonani
And me know it nice

When the girls start to strut
you could look at her but you shouldn't do that
Think about just that because her clothes are just as pretty
They're not just to cover her kitty

Girl what you really want all night
Me want the buddy, make me feel nice
Boy what you really want all night
Me want the poonani, see for make nice
Baby the way you waik is so hot
Let's have a shot of rum
Then I can make you come with me
To the ocean
That would be phat
You can be my bow cat
Nice ital breeze
Bring you to your knees
We're jammin

Yeah, politics can be tough, especially since everyone has their own and people tend to get very worked up over politics. I usually prefer when politics aren't the subject of a song, especially since a lot of entertainers tend to get preachy. But if it's a good song, it doesn't ruin it for me, even when I disagree with the politics.

I guess you are right but I feel like the lyrics aren't so bad. It's a simple message, so the lyrics are simple. In my opinion to say whether lyrics are bad or not would depend on the context of the song as a whole. Like you said, sometimes the melody and strong performance is what carries the tune. As apposed to say, Bob Dylan's music where lyrics are absolutely everything.

The entirety of One Direction's You Don't Know You're Beautiful is pretty atrocious lyrically, but the worst part of it is "But when you smile at the ground it ain't hard to tell,
You don't know oh-oh!
You don't know you're beautiful!"

...If for no other reason than just imagining the sheer creepiness of someone looking at the ground and smiling. Eh

Sext, sext, sext, me
Sext, sext, sext, me
Sext, sext, sext, me
Sext, sext, sext, me

Less than three is just a tease
Send those nudes, make me drool
Hit me up - make me cum
Wanna sext? I'll show you some

Sticky drama all the way
Want my dick? You gotta pay!
You've seen what my thumbs can do
Time to use my tongue on you

Show me what you got on my LCD
Let's get down to it
So you can get down on me
Cybering is so 1999
You've got to be textually active
If you wanna be mine

'Cause ...

I wanna fuck you hard
I wanna feel you deep
I wanna rock your body
I wanna taste your sweet

I wanna fuck you hard
I wanna feel you deep
I wanna aah ahh
I wanna aah ahh

Love me or hate me but you want to fuck me
My love is unrestricted
You know you wanna lick this
I'm stronger than the strongest drug you've ever had
Mix 'em all together and I would still be twice as bad

I know you want some more!

When I text it's seckz! sex! sex!
You start to undress! Dress!
Poppin' out your chest,
At your friends' request.
Now I'm rocking on your top
And you know I just can't stop stop
Make you drop
Feel you up till I hit the spot
'Cause I can't take TAKE TAKE
ALL THIS WAIT! WAIT!
I'm so impatient
You got me waitin
Cut this shit!
Show your tits!
Flip it out on my sidekick
Like quagmire on family guy
Giggity!!! Giggity!!! All the time

I wanna fuck you hard
I wanna feel you deep
I wanna rock your body
I wanna taste your sweet
I wanna fuck you hard
I wanna feel you deep
I wanna aah ahh
I wanna aah ahh

Love me or hate me but you want to fuck me
My love is unrestricted
You know you wanna lick this
I'm stronger than the strongest drug you've ever had
Mix 'em all together and I would still be twice as bad

There I go!
Sexting all my mother fucking favorite hoes
Stereo blast it up! Go ape shit and tear it up
We can make you look like hobos
She's texting if she should swallow
Hellz ya! Go for more
Parents banging down the door

Oh no - caught with my pants down
Now I gotta leave this town
I ain't never looking back
I'm gonna tell your ass straight up
This is how we live it up
I just don't give a fuck
And if I ever gave a fuck
I would be straight out of luck

I wanna fuck you hard
I wanna feel you deep
I wanna rock your body
I wanna taste your sweet

I wanna fuck you hard
I wanna feel you deep
I wanna aah ahh
I wanna aah ahh

I wanna fuck you hard
I wanna feel you deep
I wanna rock your body
I wanna taste your sweet

I wanna fuck you hard
I wanna feel you deep
I wanna fucking rock your body

I wanna fuck you hard
I wanna feel you deep
I wanna rock your body
I wanna taste your sweet

I wanna fuck you hard
I wanna feel you deep
I wanna aah ahh
I wanna aah ahh

Love me or hate me but you want to fuck me
My love is unrestricted
You know you wanna lick this
I'm stronger than the strongest drug you've ever had
Mix 'em all together and I would still be twice as bad

I know you want some more!

Sexting, sexting, sexting
