Do lyrics still count?

The other day, I was laughing with some good friends of mine about the lyrics of many huge pop songs. Everyone listen and enjoy these songs but if you come to think of the lyrics, they are absolutely crap.

I am a fan of Bruno Mars and I really like his songs, he has a good voice and nice performance. However, it does not take him off the performers’ list of crappy-lyrics-pop-songs. Surely, many of you are familiar with his song Gorilla and I bet you like it, I do too, but from the moment I checked out its lyrics, let’s say my enthusiasm to hear it loudly on my speakers is no longer the same lol

So what I advice you to do is to take a listen of the song without checking the lyrics, then a second time while reading the lyrics, I think you’ll make sure to always check the lyrics of your favourite songs from this moment onwards. And if you feel like exploring a more propitious territory for such lyrics, I suggest to check Britney Spear’s songs, she is a pioneer in this field lol

Gorilla Lyrics:

Ooh I got a body full of liquor
With a cocaine kicker
And I’m feeling like I’m thirty feet tall
So lay it down, lay it down

You got your legs up in the sky
With the devil in your eyes
Let me hear you say you want it all
Say it now, say it now

Look what you’re doing, look what you’ve done
But in this jungle you can’t run
‘Cause what I got for you
I promise it’s a killer,
You’ll be banging on my chest
Bang bang, gorilla

Ooh, yeah
You and me baby making love like gorillas
Ooh, yeah
You and me baby making love like gorillas

Yeah, I got a fistful of your hair
But you don’t look like you’re scared
You just smile and tell me, “Daddy, it’s yours.”
‘Cause you know how I like it,
You’s a dirty little lover

If the neighbors call the cops,
Call the sheriff, call the SWAT ‒ we don’t stop,
We keep rocking while they’re knocking on our door
And you’re screaming, “Give it to me baby,
[Clean version:] Give it like you wanna!”
[Explicit version:] Give it to me motherfucker!”

Oh, look what you’re doing, look what you’ve done
But in this jungle you can’t run
‘Cause what I got for you
I promise it’s a killer,
You’ll be banging on my chest
Bang bang, gorilla

Ooh, yeah
You and me baby making love like gorillas
Ooh, yeah
You and me baby making love like gorillas

I bet you never ever felt so good, so good
I got your body trembling like it should, it should
You’ll never be the same baby once I’m done with you
You [x3]

Oh, you with me baby making love like gorillas

Ooh, yeah
You and me baby we’ll be fuckin’ like gorillas
Ooh, yeah (Yeah, yeah, baby, baby, oh yeah, yeah)
You and me baby making love like gorillas
