Weird lyrics I will never understand

Have you ever come across a song whose lyrics made you go "Huh??!?" Sure you have.

Here is my top 10 list of weirdest / dumbest / worst lyrics of all times

10. Neil Diamond - I am....I said

"I am I said
To no-one there
And no-one heard at all
Not even the chair"

"I am I said" - but what did you say? Did you say "I am"? And then did you stop talking? And you expected the chair to respond by saying.... um, what exactly? A real gem Mr. Diamond.

9. Elton John - Your Song

"If I was a sculptor, but then again, no"

Oh come on Sir John,  make up your mind already

8. Paul McCartney - Let em In

"Someone’s knocking at the door
Somebody’s ringing the bell
Do me a favor, open the door and let them in"

A step-by-step guide on what to do when somebody knocks the door. Hey Paul, why don't you enlighten us by telling us what to do next? Like ask them to have a seat, offer them drinks maybe.....pedestrian. Especially coming from you.

7. Jessica Simpson - I Think I'm in Love With You

I don't know what's gotten into me
But, I think I know what it is

She's taken over from Sir Elton John as the most confusing lyricist ever. Although what's really intriguing is the self proclamation that she can think. 

6. Bono - Grace

"Grace - It's a name for a girl"

Bono the true genius, no?

5. The Killers - Human

"Are we human? Or are we dancer? 
My sign is vital,  My hands are cold"

We are humans, but whoever wrote these lyrics clearly isn't. Also refutes the theory that aliens are more intelligent than us. 

4. Fergie - London Bridge

"When I come to the club step aside, Pop the seats don't be havin' me a line
VIP cause you know i gotta shine, I'm Fergie Ferg and me love you long time"

Somebody really needed to have a word with her English teachers.

3. Back Street Boys - I Want It That Way

"I Want It That Way"

THAT way as in? OK maybe we get it. But there wasn't any need to make it so obvious. Really.

2. Nile: Unas Slayer of the God

"Behold Amkebu Hath Snared Them for Unas
Behold Tecber Tep F Hath Known Them"

No kidding. Those are the lyrics. And it's a English song. Unbelievable? Believe it.

1. Kanye West - Gettin' It In

"My apologies are you into astrology, 
Cause, um, im trying to make it to Uranus"

Here is a very good reason why I do not listen to Hip-hop. Dear Kanye, even your astrologer would have asked you to consult an astronomer on that. BTW your astrologer did predict that you would grow up to be real stupid.
