10 Best Stupid Song Lyrics
Stupid is a relative term (and many people have stupid relatives), but you should be aware of what qualifies a song as one of the 10 best stupid song lyrics. But this aside, there are tunes so over-the-top that they all but demand inclusion in the following list of ten best stupid song lyrics.
- “The Witch Doctor” Recorded by David Seville (also known as Ross Bagdasarian), this classic novelty tune includes epic lyrics, such as, “Ooo eee, ooh ah-ah. Ting tang, walla-walla bing bang.” It was released in 1958 and featured studio-engineered vocals from a group that would later come to be known as Alvin and the Chipmunks.
- “The Alphabet Song” Originally released in 1938, this song was artfully recorded by The Three Stooges. Its lyrics are every bit as serious as the recording artists of this tune that includes some incredibly stupid song lyrics.
- “Shama Lama Ding Dong” Made most famous in the 1978 film “Animal House,” this fantastic tune was actually written and performed much earlier by Otis Redding. But all the same, the chorus includes some outrageously stupid song lyrics.
- “Louie Louie" The Kingsmen released this fantastic garage band tune in 1955 and to this day the lyrics are considered stupid by most people. Not because of the content but because no one can definitively discover what they actually entail due to poor record-keeping.
- “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” In 1968, Iron Butterfly (not unlike The Kingsmen) gave the world a terrific tune with words that still exist as a mystery. No one knows the actual content of these lyrics.
- “Strangers in the Night” Frank Sinatra’s vocals helped make this hummable tune a classic in 1971, but does anyone really know the meaning of “Shoo-be-doo-be doo”?
- “Scarborough Fair” In 1969, Simon and Garfunkel delivered this terrific tune. However, their inclusion of a grocery list of spices caused it to make this list of 10 best stupid song lyrics.
- “I am…I said” Arguably a modern day genius, Neil Diamond did a brilliant job in the writing of this 1971 piece. Lyrically, most would agree that including lines such as, “And no one heard at all. Not even the chair” is a bit of a reach.
- “My Humps” In 2005, The Black Eyed Peas manage to convey lyrics as offensive as they are inane in this waste of time. These are truly stupid lyrics.
- “How Many Licks” Unfortunately for her, Lil’ Kim gets singled out as the representative for her ilk of music even though a number of others continue to purvey lyrics so simultaneously offensive and poorly written as those in this 2000 release.
