The 16 Silliest ABBA Lyrics

They’re one of the greatest pop groups of all time, but those lyrics… In their defense, English wasn’t their first language. posted on

16. “Lay All Your Love On Me”

“It was like shooting a sitting duck
A little small talk, a smile and baby I was stuck”

15. “Super Trouper”

“I was sick and tired of everything
When I called you last night from Glasgow
All I do is eat and sleep and sing
Wishing every show was the last show”

14. “Mamma Mia”

“Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I’ve missed you”

13. “The Winner Takes It All”

“The gods may throw the dice
Their minds as cold as ice
And someone way down here
Loses someone dear”

12. “When All Is Said and Done”

“In our lives, we have walked some strange and lonely treks
Slightly worn, but dignified, and not too old for sex
We’re still striving for the sky,
Got taste for humble pie”

11. “Summer Night City”

“It’s elusive, call it glitter
Somehow something turns me on
Some folks only see the litter
We don’t miss them when they’re gone”

10. “I Have a Dream”

“I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I’ll cross the stream — I have a dream”

9. “Waterloo”

“My, my, at Waterloo Napoleon did surrender
Oh yeah, and I have met my destiny in quite a similar way”

8. “Thank You for the Music”

“And I’ve often wondered, how did it all start?
Who found out that nothing can capture a heart
Like a melody can?
Well, whoever it was, I’m a fan”

7. “Fernando”

“I was so afraid Fernando
We were young and full of life and none of us prepared to die
And I’m not ashamed to say
The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry”

6. “When I Kissed the Teacher”

“I was in a trance when I kissed the teacher
Suddenly I took the chance when I kissed the teacher
Leaning over me, he was trying to explain the laws of geometry
And I couldn’t help it, I just had to kiss the teacher”

5. “Me and I”

“We’re like sun and rainy weather
Sometimes we’re a hit together
Me and I”

4. “Eagle”

“Is it true I’m an eagle?
Is it true I can spread my wings?
Flying high, high, I’m a bird in the sky
(I’m an eagle)”

3. “The Visitors”

“The signal’s sounding once again and someone tries the doorknob
None of my friends would be so stupidly impatient”

2. “On and On and On”

“Standing up is scary if you think you’re gonna fall
Like a Humpty Dumpty, ‘fraid of falling off the wall”

1. “Tiger”

“And if I meet you,
What if I eat you?
I am the tiger”
