Since the dawn of pop music, there has always been a dissonance between the music kids listen to and the content of the lyrics within. This can make an adult cringe when a child enjoys a song with an inappropriate lyric, especially one he or she does not understand. Here are the six most uncomfortable lyrics in songs that kids like.
6. "We went streaking in the park/Skinny dipping in the dark/Then had a menage a trois" from Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)"
Lyrics like this make me relieved I don't have kids. The entire song promotes negative attention and regretful behavior in a way that's obvious to adults but probably not so much to the young ones. I'm certain that some poor parent has had to explain to their kids what a menage a trois is, and this kid has thought during sex-ed class, "Wait, so there's only supposed to be two people?"
5. "In the club party rock/Lookin' for your girl? She on my jock" from LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem"
If LMFAO had the same universal, life-affirming definition of "party" as Andrew W.K., then the band would be the greatest influence in every modern child's life. Instead, the LMFAO party is the one that only exists in LMFAO songs, the one where it's acceptable for girls who are previously taken to be on one's jock. Additionally, kids probably think "she on my jock" means that she's getting a piggy-back ride from the rapper's friend who happens to be an athlete.
