Shania Twain
I must explain
Even though her music is manure
I would still do her
You'd pay big bucks to know what you really think.

Avril Lavigne
Makes BCB whine
She sk8ed her way into our hearts
Causing gas, indigestion and farts
You'd pay big bucks to know what you really think.

My darling Duffy
When you cry, your eyes get puffy
I would gladly do as you suggest and meet you by the entrance to the tube at Warwick Avenue
But which one dear? I believe there are two

Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus
Two generations of non-talent to tire us
I suppose that they are a phenomenon
Like a case of diarrhea that just seems to go on and on
You'd pay big bucks to know what you really think.

Devo
Highly disrespected by Pere Ubu, the art band from Clevo
Did they really not smell the beano?
Or were they just jealous cuz they didn't get to be produced by Brian Eno?

Oh Shakira
I like to look at you but hate to hear ya
So therefore I think it would be groovy
If you gave up music and went into movies
You'd pay big bucks to know what you really think.

Broadcast and the Focus Group
I liked your album although some here think it's poop
I think their hearing might be defective
From listening to too much Animal Collective

Jimmy Buffet
Why don't you stuff it
Up your ever-expanding baby boomer rear?
I got yer cheeseburger in paradise right here!

Sonic Youth
Have a combined age of over 200 if you wanna know the truth
Yet Thurston Moore still resembles a gawky teenager
And their gig the other night was quite the rager

Lady GaGa
Is unlikely to ever collaborate with Ravi Shankar and perform a raga
But as current day pop divas go, she's got it going on
And I guess it's only a matter of time before she records a duet with Elton John

Justin Bieber
He don't fear the reaper
He knows he's gotta live for today
Because global warming is gonna burn the planet to a crisp before he reaches "Legacy Act" status anyway

My Morning Jacket
Hippie chicks swarm all over them yet they prefer to whack it
Is it that they love their wives and girlfriends so really and truly?
Or are they just sick of having the bus tour fumigated to get rid of the stench of stale patchouli?

Robert Plant, of the famous Led Zeppelin
Bought a box to keep his old records by Wilson, Betty and Keppel in.
When asked why he did this, he replied, with a smirk, 'Cos I'm Plant,
And you're not, so you can't'.

A Beach Boys' fan named Sea of Tunes
Was watching an old episode of 'Men Behaving Badly' (which featured, of course, Martin Clunes).
Fortunately, checking his TV guide, he found that the other channels were showing 'Night of the Demon' (featuring Dana Andrews and loosely based upon the M.R. James' short story 'Casting the Runes'),
And a dubbed version of Hiroshi Teshigahara's 'The Woman in the Dunes'.

It is purely by coincidence that my AA and BB lines happen to share the same rhyme....

The Moody Blues
Were once mentioned in The Evening News
When in the obituary section it said
Timothy Leary's dead.

Krzysztof Penderecki
With relief cried, 'Why, that river looks Esk-y'!
Because he'd been lost on the Moors
(North Yorkshire, of course).

György Ligeti
Was unlikely to forgeti
The film '2001'
Because since then his compositions had featured on the soundtrack of none.

Napalm Death
One look at their promo pic and you can tell all those guys have BO and bad breath
Giving voice to the rage within is no easy occupation
But left unchecked, their unholy stench will decimate the nation

Adele
Biggest singer in the world? I guess it's just as well
Who else is up for biggest singer in the world, Katy Perry?
Fuck that's fucking scary!
