If you are the vocalist, you can refuse to say hot piece of ass if you dont want to. Just say its inapropriate etc... You could ask him to write about her in a more poetic way.

As much as I totally agree with this in principle, one only needs to look at tripe like "I like the white stains on your dress" that gets top 10 on Billboard and sells out arenas to prove me wrong.

Really, it comes down to personal moral/artistic principle. Nickelback can (and has done) a good deal better than that. The "white stains" lyric, though... I would personally have buried in hopes that nobody ever heard that from me, even if I spun that one out of my little 17-year-old noggin.

OP, if i were you, i would have said '**** no' from the very beginning.

Yeah, he'll be kinda thrown off by that response, but he'll have to respect your honesty.

Otherwise, if you think it'l work as an idea, make the lyrics come more sincerely, and less trashy if it's about 'a hot piece of ass'. With crap like that, you go subtle, or go all the way. So.

I personally don't think this is a big deal, so i'd say 'Hell no. your girlfriend is so homely, i expect a slice of blueberry pie everytime i see her', jokingly, ofcourse. Then, i'd see how he reacts to that and i'll know if it's worth the pain talking about lyrics with him or not. To know their true capabilities is to know their tolerance to butthurt.

Butthurt anal pains.

He has no tolerance for being butthurt. And it looks like I am kicking him out of the band(for caving to his girlfriend's Yoko behavior) so it is a moot point anyway.

There's a difference between seeking advice and betraying a trust. Posting the lyrics would be the second, so no, sorry.
