Des'ree - LifeDes’ree – Life

Des’ree won with the lyrics to her song Life:

I don’t want to see a ghost,
It’s the sight that I fear most,
I’d rather have a piece of toast,
Watch the evening news.

Pretty bad indeed. But I’m clueless why My Humps by Black Eyed Peas isn’t in this list.

I met a girl down at the disco.
She said hey, hey, hey yea let’s go.
I could be your baby, you can be my honey
Let’s spend time not money.
I mix your milk wit my cocoa puff,
Milky, milky cocoa,
Mix your milk with my cocoa puff, milky, milky riiiiiiight.

    Argh, Realplayer … Don’t have, don’t want it. Too bad, I was really interested in this.
    But the ghost/toast-rhyme is actually so stupid that it’s brilliant.
