okay so its bad lyric day here on the gsx blog. what's the worst lyric you've heard in all of music history? i'll get things started with a great band but a really bad lyric:

"can't you see me standing here i got my back against the record machine."

van halen

great example of a really suck ass lyric. what's your's? (hint: all foreigner songs are fertle ground on this one.)

Parker said...

Nice workout this morning. Now I know where Sarah has been hiding. I REALLY suck at OHS! Chuck thanks for the tips and showing the "power roller" to us.

"I'd like to check you for ticks"-

Ava, that line worked all the time in college..don't knock it!

Great pic of the "godfather" Ken C
on CF football website yesterday, looks like a demo of proper burpee technique

Jerod said...

17:10. Slow, but at least I did prescribed weight.

Thank you Karate Kid !!!

Joe Esposito - You're the Best Lyrics

Try to be best
‘Cause you’re only a man
And a man’s gotta learn to take it

Try to believe
Though the going gets rough
That you gotta hang tough to make it

History repeats itself
Try and you’ll succeed

Never doubt that you’re the one
And you can have your dreams!

Vanessa said...

I'm not sure this counts as it's not just one lyric but the entire song that makes me want to hurl. But the following lyric is especially OOGIE considering the artist: "you want a man with a slow hand. You want a lover with an easy touch." -Conway Twitty

Eeew!!!! Blech! Barf!

M.A. Deavers said...

Vanessa, busting out the Conway Twitty. Nice.

jared said...

im gonna go with... "time is like a piece of wax, falling on a termite who's choking on a splinter"

"religion" beat me up yesterday... 5 rounds as many body weight squats as possible and 7 burpee box jumps.

Parker said...

The worst of the worst:

"revved up like a duece, another runner in the night", but it really sounds like "wrapped up like a douche", the song is "Blinded by the Light"

ChrisChev said...

Yea, the Conway Twitty yuck factor is there especially since he wrote that song about the boy who lived down the street...(Wait, was that to much?!) are some lyrics as you can pick pretty much any line in this song...

"I was tired of my lady, we had been together too long
Like a worn out recording of a favorite song
So while she lay there sleeping, I read the paper in bed
And in the personals column, there was a letter I read"

If you like Pina Coladas, YadaYadaYada


ken c said...

any song that has ever used, "down on my knees beggin' please."

Vanessa said...

Thanks Mike. I was exposed to that song as a child and I have never been able to overcome the trauma. It haunts me.

ava said...

how about "my life would suck without you"?!

Jason Buzzard said...

I think I get the general idea, but maybe I am wrong...

"Is there a perfect way of holding you baby?! (Liar)
Vicinity of Obscenity in your eyes!
Terracotta terracotta terracotta PIE!"

scott said...

Back squats @ 265#
Wod rxd at 13:23. Struggle with the OHS. Alexis killed this one with a sub 13.

Party Like a Lobster?

ken c said...

"rubbing sticks and stones together make the sparks ignite. lookin forward to a little afternoon delight."

so many bad lyrics in that one that it may well be the worst song ever.

Emily said...

Mmm bop, ba duba dop
Ba du bop, Ba du dop
Ba du bop, Ba du dop
Ba du

Plant a seed, plant a flower, plant a rose
You can plant any one of those
Keep planting to find out which one grows
It's a secret no one knows

what were they thinking?

jared said...

Ken, Hold your tongue... Afternoon Delight is pure lyrical genius.

please partake:

Brennan said...

I agree with "I'd like to check you for ticks". Ken just is mad because he needs some afternoon delight.

Super Trev said...

We were at a party
His ear lobe fell in the deep
Someone reached in and grabbed it
It was a rock lobster

We were at the beach
Everybody had matching towels
Somebody went under a dock
And there they saw a rock
It wasn't a rock
It was a rock lobster

Motion in the ocean
His air hose broke
Lots of trouble
Lots of bubble
He was in a jam
S'in a giant clam

Down, down

Underneath the waves
Mermaids wavin'
Wavin' to mermen
Wavin' sea fans
Sea horses sailin'
Dolphins wailin'

Red snappers snappin'
Clam shells clappin'
Muscles flexin'
Flippers flippin'

Down, down

Let's rock!

Boy's in bikinis
Girls in surfboards
Everybody's rockin'
Everybody's fruggin'

Twistin' 'round the fire
Havin' fun
Bakin' potatoes
Bakin' in the sun

Put on your noseguard
Put on the lifeguard
Pass the tanning butter

Here comes a stingray
There goes a manta-ray
In walked a jelly fish
There goes a dogfish
Chased by a catfish
In flew a sea robin
Watch out for that piranha
There goes a narwhale

These are the worst song lyrics ever and there all in one song.....amazing! I win! What a great song.

The B-52's wrote this gem its called rock lobster :)

Travis said...

In-a-gadda-da-vida, honey,
Dont you know that I love you?
In-a-gadda-da-vida, baby,
Dont you know that Ill always be true?

Oh, wont you come with me
And take my hand?

Oh, wont you come with me
And walk this land?

Please take my hand!

That's the song...17 min of pure $#!*.

CrossFit GSX said...

Almost rejected, SuperTrev. That song is a work of art.

ava said...

I love the B-52's!!!

ken c said...

"i wanna know what love is. i want you to show me." foreigner

"believe in me. cuz i was made for chasing dreams." stained

like i just told trevor, i don't think you can hold anything against a silly party band like the B52s when they don't take themselves seriously at all. now shitass bands that really think they are saying something profound is where you can find the best badness.

Charles said...

You heard Nationwide was ballin', we make 100's and G's
Takin' trips to the islands, smilin' under the trees
When I step up, all these heffers start comin' for me
Let my nuts go chickenhead you gets nothin' for free

Let My Nuts Go
-Jonathan Mortimer Smith (AKA Lil Jon)

Early morning singing song.

title: good morning starshine.

artist: some talentless hack.

proof that not all things hippy were cool.

ava said...

Don't let him fool you. the only reason ken knows the words to good morning starshine is because it is his ringtone!

Candice said...


Haha! You remember the words to MMMBop...unfortunately, I do too! The radio refused to stop playing their crap which sucked cuz those girls had some catchy toons! ;)

I have to go with Nickelback...

"I like your pants around your feet." (Even though I like this one).
"I like the powder on your nose." (This one I could def do without).

ken c said...

nickelback is the new foreigner.

Charles said...

You are the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the dancing queen

-From the Fight Gone Bad IV Soundtrack

Emily said...

Candice I have to admit I did copy and paste the words, but I did remember enough to know that they had to be posted lol! And I do agree w the pants around the ankles lol
