"London Bridge" by Stacy Ferguson is absolutely and without question the worst song ever.

What seems to be nothing more than some more nonsensical lyrics by this really ugly Californian turn out to be even worse sexual innuendo. She can't sing, can't dance (with the possible exception of what appears to be a drunk preteen trying to give a lapdance) and none of her songs have any rhythm at all.

So, about the song itself, let's analyze some lyrics, shall we?
Oh s*** (oh s***)
Oh s*** (oh s***)
Oh s*** (oh s***)
How profound. You're sure dangerous, with those fancy four-letter words, aren't you? I used to think repeating something six times was catchy... then I turned four.
Are you ready for this?
Yes, Executioner, I'm ready. Kill me now, please, before it gets worse.
When I come to the club, step aside.
Part the seas, don’t be havin' me in the line.
Yeah, I'll step aside - I don't really want to look at you anyway. It's also good to eliminate the chance of bumping into you - I don't want any chances of catching AIDS.
V.I.P., ‘cause you know I gotta shine.
I’m Fergie Ferg, and me love you long time
What the hell are you even talking about? Could it be... this?
All my girls get down on the floor,
Back to back, drop it down real low.
I’m such a lady, but I’m dancing like a ho
And that's something I'd brag about in a song, why?
‘Cause you know
I don’t give a f***, so here we go!
Yeah, why should you? After all, it's not as if you're actually talented enough to actually produce anything worthwhile even if you did "give a f***," as you so eloquently put it, so why not?
How come everytime you come around,
My London, London bridge, wanna go down like,
London, London, London, wanna go down like,
London, London, London, we goin’ down like…

How come everytime you come around,
My London, London bridge, wanna go down like,
London, London, London, wanna go down like,
London, London, London, we goin’ down like…
The term "London Bridge"
Might not want to do that around strangers (not like it's ever stopped you before)... won't your B-rate TV actor boyfriend get upset? Yeah, I didn't think so either.
Now As The drinks start pouring,
And my speech start slurring,
Everybody start looking real good.
Everybody, that is, except you. Not a liquor strong enough.
Grey goose got your girl feeling loose.
Now I’m wishin’ that I didn’t wear these shoes. (I hate heels)
I doubt it's the alcohol doing that.
It’s like everytime I get up on the dew,
Paparazzi put my business in the news.

And I’m like get up out my face, (oh s***)
'fore I turn around and spray your a** with mace. (oh s***)
But all is not lost! Our dear Ferguson proves she isn't as dumb as she acts (which, granted, is probably impossible). She can rhyme four-letter words! Unbelievable! Admittedly she had to make the second line twice as long as the first to make it work, but hey, it's an improvement.
Blah, blah, blah...

F*** you, b****es.
I really don't doubt you would try, but I prefer the IQs of the girls I'm with to be at least in the double digits. Oh, and a face transplant wouldn't hurt.

Oh, and stop calling yourself "Fergie," you attention-desperate moron. It's bad enough that you're polluting our airwaves with unadulterated trash, but at least come up with an original name. You're not the Dutchess of York, nor will you ever be, so why don't you use what little of your brain that crack hasn't destroyed and quit acting like it?

What's there to know??
London Bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down, London Bridge is falling down, my fair lady!
that and it was a set piece when we did Oliver in high school (ok and a place in London but that's not as exciting), and we dropped the title character off of it...whoops...

: ) yeah i'm innocent, you know you love it.

and matt, that post is entirely too long.
edit: reading it. heeey, you're a moderator, you watch yo' mouth. i like the "a**" but then spelling out a different word, haha.

Whoops... thought I caught them all.

The shorter version: This song is bad. Comically bad. It's almost worth a listen for the humor factor alone, except it's so awful it gets stuck in your head for days. Avoid at all costs.

They see me rolling. They are most definitely hating while patrolling and trying to catch me riding dirty. (read with British accent)

I have been listening to that song a lot lady just for comic effect and it has a nice beat.

Also, for some reason I enjoy 99 Problems by Jay-Z.

I've got no problems with "Ridin' Dirty." It's got a nice rhythm, at least.

mmm, que lastima that sound doesn't work on this computer (my ghetto machine at work). remind me to watch it later. ...
i've always fostered a deep loathing for weird al. well...i'd sing the star wars songs with my co-star wars fan friends back in middle school, but that's the exception. my brother was totally obsessed with weird al and it drove me nuts.

as for fergie...the song's real catchy!

hey, at least i don't HAVE the song. i've heard it 1.5 times in the car (both while driving home from church, hehe) and once at a party. it's catchy is all. lol.

clarification:
it's not particularly bad to have the song...i'm just saying i'm not totally into it. *shrug*

hmm, maybe. but, see, the thing is, i love my computer, and paid a lot of money for it, so i'd just as soon not go out of my way to get spyware or viruses.
not to mention that it's illegal. and i'm a good girl, i am. yeah...

A little over 60% of my music is now stuff I've legitimately obtained... way up from who knows how low a couple of years ago when I had hardly any CD's

And it's none of this crap

Oh, and where can you get these downloads for just less than a penny (0.99 cents) that you speak of?

Thanks, I try. It's funny to see trucking companies make that mistake on their drivers wanted ads. I also saw on the back of a truck one time "earn up to 42¢"
