BRITISH pop singer DES'REE has earned the not-so-prestigious distinction of having the worst pop lyric of all time, according to a BBC RADIO poll.
The singer earned 30% of the vote for the lyrics, "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" from her 1998 hit, "Life."
SNAP earned the runner-up spot with "I'm as serious as cancer/When I say rhythm is a dancer," according to UPI. RAZORLIGHT took third-place honors with the lyrics from "Somewhere Else." "And I met a girl/She asked me my name/I told her what it was," singer JOHNNY BORRELL sings in the band's 2005 hit.
The top 10 worst song lyrics were counted down FRIDAY on BBC DJ MARC RILEY's show. Listeners voted for their picks for three weeks prior to the countdown.
