What lyrics can you think of that are either a pithy put down, or cuttingly insulting. Try to be witty and, wherever possible, subtle although some "Blunt-instrument" lyrics may be ok at a stretch, but please use discretion.

The rules: Condescension, sarcasm, patronising, irony and satire are allowed. No filth / swearing, no blatant sexism, racism, homophobia and nothing that...... oh, for chrissake.... you should have read the site rules by now.


Some examples, f'rinstance:

"You're so vain, I bet you think this song is about you" (You're So Vain, Carly Simon). (Ouch)

"The morning sun when it's in your face really shows your age" (Rod Stewart, Maggie May). (Double ouch)


And best of all:

"You scumbag, you maggot, you cheap lousy faggot, happy Christmas your ar*e, I pray God it's our last. (Fairytale of New York, Kirsty MacColl & The Pogues)


OK, so the last one isn't at all subtle and could be borderline homophobic, but it's one of those "at a stretch" examples and come on be honest, nearly everybody knows it and thinks it's brilliant (and because I thought of it first, so there).

"Okay, so you've got a car,
That don't impress me much,
So you've got the moves but have you got the touch,
Now don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright,
But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night."
(Shania Twain)


Being gay and liking Shania Twain goes hand in hand. Wink

I'm gonna break the rules here cos I'm bad.

I wrote this chorus in the late 90's when a female had the audacity to leave me with a broken heart!!!

..and not to mention you're a b!tch
Acted like a baby, hated how you called me Rich
Won't miss your f***ing fits, more fat than a sumo wrestler
Cellulite carrying scabie infester

Sorry Lion  Hug 

Coming out of relationship with only an ironing board hurts.

You should have given it to her and said, i'm not such a vindictive man as to inhibit you from your only talent and walked away in style wearing three carrier bags for underwear and boots

I was your lover's wife.

I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment, I could be you
Yes, I wish that for just one time, you could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is to see you

ROLLINS BAND - "Liar"

You think you're going to live your life alone
In darkness and seclusion... yeah, I know
You've been out there and tried to mix with those animals
And it just left you full of humiliated confusion
So you stagger back home and wait for nothing
But the solitary refinement of your room spits you back onto the streets
And now you're desperate and in need of human contact
And then you meet me and your whole world changes
Because everything I say is everything you've ever wanted to hear
So you drop all you defenses, and you drop all your fears
I'm perfect in every way
'Cause I make you feel so strong and so powerful inside
You feel so lucky
But your ego obscures reality but you never bothered to
Wonder why things are going so well
You want to know why?

'Cause I'm a liar, yeah, I'm a liar
I'll tear your mind out, I'll burn your soul
I'll turn you into me, I'll turn you into me
'Cause I'm a liar, a liar, a liar, a liar, a liar...

I'll hide behind a smile and understanding eyes
And I'll tell you things that you already know so you can say:
I really identify with you, so much
And all the time that you're needing me is just the time
That I'm bleeding you, don't you get it yet?
I'll come to you like an affliction then I'll leave you like an addiction
You'll never forget me... you wanna know why?

'Cause I'm a liar, yeah, I'm a liar,
I'll rip your mind out, I'll burn your soul,
I'll turn you into me, I'll turn you into me,
'Cause I'm a liar, a liar, liar, liar, liar, liar...

I don't know why I feel the need to lie and cause you so much pain
Maybe it's something inside, maybe it's something I can't explain
'Cause all I do is mess you up and lie to you
I'm a liar, ooooh, I'm a liar
But if you'll give me another chance I swear I'll never lie to you again
'Cause now I see the destructive power of a lie,
They're stronger than truth
I can't believe I ever hurt you, I swear I will never lie to you again, please
Just give me one more chance, I'll never lie to you again, no,
I swear, I will never tell a lie, I will never tell a lie, no, no
Ha ha ha ha ha, ho ho ho! Sucker! Sucker! Ooooh sucker!

I am a liar, yeah, I am a liar, yeah, I like it,
I feel good, ooooh I am a liar... yeah
I lie, I lie, I lie, ooh I lie, I lie, yeah,
Oooooh I'm a liar, I lie, yeah, I like it, I feel good,
I'll lie again, and again, I'll lie again and again and I'll keep lying,
I promise... ha ha ha

I think Tupac's Hit 'Em Up wins this (Notorius BIG and Puff Daddy are his targets):

"Hit 'Em Up"
I ain't got no moth****cking friends
That's why I f**ked your b**ch
You fat moth*****ker (Take Money)
West Side
Bad Boy Killers (Take Money)
You know who the realist is
n**gas we bring it to (Take Money)
(ha ha, that's alright)

First off, f**k your bitch
And the clique you claim
West side when we ride
Come equipped with game
You claim to be a player
But I f***ed your wife
We bust on Bad Boys
n***as f**k for Life
Plus Puffy tryin' to see me weak
Hearts I rip
Biggie Smalls and Junior Mafia
Some mark ass b***hes
We keep on coming
While we running for your jewels
Steady gunning
Keep on busting at them fools
You know the rules
Little Ceasar go ask you homie
How I'll leave you
Cut your young ass up
See you in pieces
Now be deceased
Little Kim,
Don't f**k around with real G's
Quick to snatch your ugly ass, off the streets
So f**k peace
I'll let them n***as know
It's on for Life
Don't let the west side
Ride the night (ha ha)
Bad Boys murdered on Wax and kill
f**k with me
And get your caps peeled
You know, see

[Chorus:]
Grab your glocks when you see 2pac
Call the cops when you see 2pac, uh
Who shot me,
But your punks didn't finish
Now you 'bout to feel the wrath of a menace
n***a, I hit 'em up

So I...pull over to the side of the road
And I heard "Son do you know why I'm stopping you for?"
Cause I'm young and I'm black and my hat's real low?
Do I look like a mind reader sir, I don't know.

Idiot wind blowing every time your move your mouth
Blowing down the backroads heading south
Idiot wind blowing every time you move your teeth
You're an idiot babe
It's a wonder that you still know how to breathe

I think my favourite one is from "It's So Easy" by Guns 'n' Roses...just because of the way Axl sings it (see video at about 1:24)

I see you standin' there
You think you're so cool
Why don't you just
F*** OFF!

I rather think one or two have lost sight of the original intention of this thread.

It was meant to be about the "clever" lyric.... the well thought out line..... the devastating put down without necessarily having to resort to profanity.

OK, so some lyrics can be clever and still use a bit of strong language, but one or two are straying into obscenity-for-the-sake-of-it and there's nothing clever about that. It's just mindless.

Genius. Dylan is the master of the acerbic put down.

Not a massive fan but 2pac was very bit a lyricist as Dylan / Cash etc. Different times different words.

Welll that was me just reading the title of the thread, sorry...anyway, if you want intelligent put-downs try the Manic Street Preachers early stuff or Henry Rollins was pretty sharp...(too many to choose from to put on here)...

Cari, the manics are absolutely brilliant. Even now they are still ahead of all the young pretenders. Henry Rollins, on the other hand, is an idiot.

Cari, you rule...Rollins is one of my heroes...despite him being incredibly short (I don't discriminate). "The End of Silence" is one of my favourite albums of all time.

I like Henry Rollins...I like Black Flag too though.

Gretgael - Manics goes without saying. I'm an old skool fan though...stopped listening to their stuff after Life Blood, not because it was rubbish or anything, just never got round to it.

Same here, the Manics are one of my favorite bands. I prefer their older stuff as well, musically the were edgier and James spat out Richey's lyrics with absolute venom and conviction, you couldn't help being dragged in. Saying that, I like their new music as well. The last two albums I really enjoyed.

I've always particularly liked this verse from Shinedown's Sound of Madness:

"I'm so sick of your tombstone mentality,
If there's an afterlife, then it'll set you free,
I'm not gonna part the seas,
You're a self-fulfilling prophecy"
