Examples of very lazy songwriting/lyrics.

We'll get this straight. The most lazy example of song lyrics is

"Put your hands up in the air, and wave them like you just don't care". (lyrics may vary)

Usually used by rather inept rappers who start to freestyle but then use that line as a bail-out when they realise it's all going belly up, or used by boy bands who try to rap.

Other examples of lazy lyrics...

Rhyming the word "waiting" with "anticipating" and "hesitating".

Persistent rhyming of words ending in "ation" (See Sum41, Stereo MC's, The Shamen)

Every lyric Avril Lavigne has written or will ever write.

D'yknow what? I think if we continue to contribute to this thread, we could possibly write a song (probably a ballad more than likely but with a rap bit in the middle for the "hands in air, wave like dont care" bit)...

"years" can be rhymed with "fears" too but "tears" always seems to be used. Why not use "Beers", "rears", "Tangires", or "gears".

Avril Lavigne truly is a very lazy lyricist. I like the part in "I'm With You" where she tells us:

yeah yeah yeah/a-yeah yeah/a-yeah yeah/a-yeah yeah/yeaaah!

Also poor are all of these techno songs which have the one verse repeated three times. Like that's supposed to fool me!

Also, when she rhymes "TV" with "MTV" in "Sk8r Boi." I mean...genius worthy of Donne.

"an eagle flies"(+ variations) I've always wondered what that eagle's doing there

"the skies are blue"

or how about this classic? (sorry Sarah)
"boom boom boom boom, I want you in my room"

Hey Kylie's great!!

"I should be so lucky
lucky lucky lucky
I should be so lucky in looooooooove"

See!

But seriously, I love Kylie's music so BACK OFF!

"They came for the Communists,
but I didn't speak up because
I wasn't a Communist. They came
for the Jews, but I didn't speak up
because I wasn't a Jew. They came
for the trade unionists, but I didn't
speak up because I wasn't a trade
unionist. They came for the Catholics,
but I didn't speak up because I was
a Protestant. Then they came for me,
but by that time there wasn't anyone
left to speak up for me."
