"A Commotion of Grunts and Squawks"

This could be Norman Mailer's first posthumous award: Literary Review's Bad Sex in Fiction Award. There's no stage equivalent of this award, though I'd love to start one for bad lyrics (I've taken a stab before).

Three of the worst musical theatre lyrics I've heard (the shows remain unnamed, to protect the idiots).

Broadway Musical X (this lyric was cut during previews):
Let me drive down that road one more time
This time "'ll watch for the one-way sign


NYMF Musical Y:
On this graveyard of a planet
Where the zombies order tea


Unproduced Musical Z Written by People Who Really Ought to Know Better:
Sure she gave me head
But it's not my fault she's dead!
