Madonna... or WTF? §

Madonna’s new album: a tragedy of half-hearted lyrics drowned out by a boom boom dance beat… For an example of why not to buy, or even listen(!) to this album, here are the lyrics to one of the songs, “I Love New York.”

(Emphasis added to make sure you get it.)

I Love New York

I don’t like cities
But I like New York
Other places
make me feel like a dork

Los Angeles is for
people who sleep
Paris and London
Baby you can keep

Other cities always make me mad
Other places always make me sad
No other city ever made glad except like New York
I love New York
I love New York
I love New York

If you don’t like my attitude
Then you can F off.
Just go to Texas
Isn’t there where they golf?

New York is not for little pussies who scream
If you can’t stand the heat
Then get off my street

Get off my street (Repeats and fades out when chorus starts)

Other cities always make me mad
Other places always make me sad
No other city ever made me glad except New York
I love New York
I love New York
I love New York

I love New York/Get off my street - repeats)

(Sirens in the background fade into next track)

Actually, it is kind of ingenious… this witch is going to MAKE MILLIONS from rhyming mad and sad… and I’m so sad that she feels like a dork, execpt, of course, when she’s in New York.
