Are These The Worst Lyrics Ever Written?



Yeah, I'll admit it: I succumb to hyperbole way too damn much. After reverring Merriweather Post Pavillion as basically the Second Coming, I've imposed self-censoring techniques to ensure I don't casually call something the "worst ever", "best ever", etc. This is because there are instances where such tags are deserved. Merriweather is the best fucking ever. And "I Hate My Life" by Canadian nü grunge quartet (and Nickelback protégés) Theory of A Deadman might be the worst lyrics ever written.

I use the word "ever" knowing full-well it's semantic implications; "ever" meaning from the beginning of Gregorian Chants to the rise of Classical to the fall of disco. I ask the question, "are these the worst lyrics ever written?", not rhetorically, not flippantly, and not ironically (okay, maybe a little bit ironically). Either way, here they are for your literary pleasure:

So sick of the hobos
Always beggin' for change
I don't like how I gotta work
And they just sit around and get paid

I hate all of the people
Who can't drive their cars
Bitch, you better get out of the way
Before I start falling apart

I hate how my wife
Is always up my ass
She always wants to buy brand new things
But I don't have the cash

(aw, please kill me now)

(Refrain)
Well I hate my job, all my rich friends
I hate everyone to the bitter end
Nothing turns out right, there's no end in sight
I hate my life

How come I never get laid?
Nice guys always lose
How could she have another headache?
There's always some kind of excuse

I still hate my job
My boss is a dick
I don't get paid nearly enough
To put up with all of his shit

-(Refrain)-
I hate my job, all my rich friends
I hate everyone to the bitter end
Nothing turns out right, there's no end in sight
I hate my life

-Musical Interlude-

I hate that I can't tell
When a girl's underage
And how when I tell her she's a nice piece of ass
Then her daddy punches me in the face

So if you're pissed like me
Bitches, here's what you've gotta do
Put your middle fingers up in the air
Go on and say 'Fuck you'

-(Refrain)-
I hate my job, all my rich friends
I hate everyone to the bitter end
Nothing turns out right, there's no end in sight
I hate my life

So much at stake
Can't catch a break
I hate my life

No there's nothing new
And it sucks to be you
I fucking hate my life

Fuck
