What are some of the most cliche, redundant, unoriginal lyrics ever? And how many different songs can you find them in? Some that enrage you?

I can stand a lot of verses that have such obvious and crappy rhymes.

Like, "I need you, I truly do, I love you, My penis does too" sort of stuff.

Not really cliche, just kind of awful.

I need light, I need light to find my way around this house
I'm turning on the chandelier
Nice bright light for me to see

Little footsteps coming from the hallway
Oh! No! The lights are flickering
Oh! No! The lights are out

In the black of night, oh it's so hard to see
In the black of night, I see the moon
In the black of night, oh the moon is full

Ha-ha! In the black of night, oh it's so hard to see
In the black of night, I see the moon
In the black of night, oh the moon is full

I need light, I need light to find my way around this house
Oh! There's a candle
Just a little light
So I can see again

Little footsteps coming from the hallway
Ow! Ow! Something hit me on the head
Auuugh! AUauaghghhh! There it is again

In the black of night, oh it's so hard to see
In the black of night, I see the moon
In the black of night, oh the moon is full
In the black of night, oh it's so hard to see
I'LL PUNCH A DONKEY IN THE STREETS OF GALWAY

Yeah, so 1st Century BC... (Catullus, 'Odi et amo'...)

To whoever criticised Dylan...be shushed, and the Rise Against lyric 'we're all ok until we aren't' is a truism, but also effective, because when people are ok they don't seem to think they won't be...
