If Lily Allen writes a song and nobody hears it, is it still shit?
So, on the back of Lily Allen winning ‘Songwriter of the Year’ and ‘Best Song Musically and Lyrically’ for The Fear, here’s some of my least favourite lyrics of all time which frankly offend the English Language and all its speakers:
It's five o'clock in the morning / Conversation got boring
There were people from the city having lunch in the park / I believe that is called al fresco
It’s not fair and I think you’re really mean
Now I’m not a saint but I’m not a sinner / Now everything is cool as long as I’m getting thinner
(That last one particularly gets at me as this rhyming couplet is supposed to be the big wham-bam climactic finish. It fails to blow me away)
