good for nothing

Submitted by evfokas on 20.06.2013

good for nothing (English) — Usually speaking of a person, occasionally a thing. A person who is lazy, a sluggard, useless, might be " a good for nothing". A dead-beat dad (a father who doesn't pay child support payments) might be considered a "good for nothing."

nothing would change if you changed. "

He grew up in an orphanage from the start
But when his social worker said something, he didn’t give a shit
He found out fast that the place was not his home,
Here they made you feel that you are good for nothing
There is only little hope that he will turn 18 alive
Because he smoked cigarettes when he was 6, pot when he was 8, and is drunk at 10.

Sido - Open Your Eyes

Behind this imposing building, I take you to the end of the alley, in a more friendly place: welcome to the cultural café.
There we will be able to chat, have a drink or play checkers. Some Friday evening, there are even Slam events.
If you wand a good meal for nothing, I know well all the slightly sticky good places.
Here we'll meet all the good-for-nothing, the jet-set of aristocrappies.
In the evenings, there's not much to do, not many open places.
Except the stadium movie theater where gangs gather: welcome to riffraff-land!

Destiny's Child - Bills, Bills, Billls

este pentru ca exista citiva oameni pe
care ii iubim pina la capat."

Each person handles what happens to them because they are protected this way. Without this wall of beloved people that surrounds us(no matter if they are alive or not), we would be good for nothing. We would dissintegrate like in an atmosphere where the abrasion is too strong. Or we would be lost, we would simply be lost through life. If the others’ hatred—overwhelming sometimes!- their envy, their infamy are helpless, it is because there are these few people which we love till the end.

You got my head filled with songs

I'll save you and carry you forward

Kikuo - You are a Worthless Child

You’ll never know what I think observing my mimical facial movements, it won't tell you nothing, nothing, tell you nothing
There’s two of me, maybe three, only you can help that

Compose like a child composes Lego bricks together
First to the second, the second to the third, and then I’ll sit comfortably in an armchair, putting my legs on the table

It’s forever, and ever
He’s handsome, that good-for-nothing
The kind troubadour

The passing days
The morning light
My soul, my body, my voice, are good for nothing
What I wouldn't give for your gaze,
To be as always together

Amaral - Without You I'm Nothing

I know that you've blotted my address from your heart,

The window, the yellow curtain, serve no purpose,
I've lost my love.

Caetano Veloso - Where will you go?

The deafening and permanent murmur
like a parasitic noise inside you that exhausts you,
that whispers in the ear of everyone "you're no good,
you're good for nothing, you'll never be good enough",
that repeats to you "you are like that, or you should be,
nothing would change if you changed. "

José Luis Rodríguez - The sea and the sky

It is prohibited to be the one who is double standard and is full of obssession and inferiority,

It makes questionable choices at the most crucial moments

When your father berates you, it's all your life that he challenges
You may have had your license, your tray with honors

Of the war, of the rain, of the no-libido of your mother

When you see these good-for-nothing
And all the petty careerists
Running for elections

I was a good-for-nothing

He looms in darkness - spying, yet unspied.
Propelled by theft from toiling brows is he -
a good-for-nothing youthful retiree,
whom Father Russia's trough keeps well-supplied.

Paul Abucean - Should I Perchance Arise...

How do you want me to make a hit
I have too many insults in the jaw

Just good for nothing except to swell the ranks of a horny people
Because life put me on one knee
I'm the only thing that my parents have in common, I keep a bitter taste of it

Gringe - Rat of the tarmac

How can we look at ourselves with vanity,
If we fail humanity?

The only hope is sign language
I'm your satellite but it's as long as a year that we've lost that gravity between us
The one will find the answer who will find the black box in the debris
I'm a good for nothing rapper, you're an incorrigible bitch
Love is the first to die, hatred is immortal

Basta - Voice

Go ahead, muck about
I got my conscience twisted
Pull your hair, make me shout
It’s just that you insisted I was good for nothing
Like you were onto something

Royal Blood - I Only Lie When I Love You

was not worth a twopenny toss

Push your own way
Even if it's whimsy, that's ok
Even if you're a good-for-nothing, I love you, my darling

You dummy your true self

I was the child that never found comfort anywhere scorned and ridiculed
Never cared for and never spoiled

Suddenly years have passed
I haven't asked for anything

Watching him run as if he had been a rat,

Italian Folk - Barbagal

Because "Hey motherfucker, you little freak,
You're a useless bitch, so suck my dick"
Means "You're a stupid little wretch
And a good-for-nothing"

Or "Hey, motherfucker, don't fuck with me

That makes me feel so sorry

Your day became my meaning
Now my good-for-nothing love has started
Because I’m so late, because I found out so late
I’m so sorry

Jealousy Incarnate (OST) - Because of You

Wash over you and close in on you
I've like their old stuff, but not the new
With their bad tricks they can't entice me
Because I know: They are good for nothing but ripping off money
At the moment it seems they have enough money
Trend is also an argument because my sister already knows them

Die Fantastischen Vier - Popular

the lyrics cut you, I'll hit you with the fucking sickle, you're done for!
I'm a beast on the beat, you can't get a hold of me,
we're holding a meeting, deciding how killer the lyrics should be!
i could have been a fucked-up good-for-nothing retard,
and talk about how life doesn't inspire me at all..
but I didn't become the complete opposite of that for vain,

Killakikitt - I Could Have Been

The inevitable conclusion of a life lived steeped in self-indulgence,
Is unexpectedly linked with the anxiety of living in these dark times.

“And so, to this depressing and ultimately good-for-nothing world,”
Or rather, to such a self-serving excuse, blow them all to kingdom come.

It is Ali, you have understood it,
He is not Aladdin
Believe me, this [he] is a scoundrel, a good-for-nothing
He steals, he is a bandit
And my duty after all

Your message to The Great Bear
And the course's path,
A moment made of velvet
Even if it's good for nothing, goes
The wind will take it away
All will disappear but

messing my mouth, messing my mind,
don't know what to say. My tongue's all tied.
Tied up. It's alright. Hey! Whatcha gonna do?
Lips 'ain't good for nothing but kissing you.
The taste of your sweetness, I feel it to my toes,
like chocolate eclair or a honeysuckle rose.

Emilie-Claire Barlow - What a Little Moonlight Can Do

Good-for-nothing is the name they'll remember me by

I turned my back on the world
You know I'd given up on livin' 'til I met you girl

Then you came into my life with come hither in your eyes

Lord Huron - Louisa

You're a risk I can't take

I did everything I could to get you
But now that I look at you I know it's all good for nothing
It was inevitable and easy to believe in a dream that then
You smothered into his arms

There is nothing to do
With these heathen Indians
They are a race of vipers, of good-for-nothing.
We have to kill these beasts
With a shot in the head.

Pocahontas (OST) - Savages (part 1)

Convicted with no recourse,
to each his time, to each his turn.
So does the rabble spread
and our little good-for-nothing die little by little.
I always have the same dream
that comes to an end at dawn.

But why did I see you crying? Now I know there's a place for everything,

I met her in a cabaret
she was a dancer
and I innocent fell in love
with that good for nothing

When I wanted to take her to a place

She has great legs and is a great talker

Big Bang - Bingle Bingle

What will I do when I catch up?
Who knows?

Just look at the glass pane on this good-for-nothing water tank.
At the endless love that we had yesterday.
Ruining it is just too horrible to bear.

POLKADOT STINGRAY - The Immortal Jellyfish

There's no point to this...
For what purpose was I born?
To be a good-for- nothing daughter?

The made-up person reflected in the water seems to me a stranger

And the air i breathe is a waste
They've nailed me against the wall with a sword
Ive even lost the will to cry

We stayed naked for years
Like presents, just wrapped in our arms,
That moment, when I look into your eyes (in german augenblick=moment, but augen=eyes and blick=looking)
I’m a good-for-nothing, but I show you a magic trick
I let all our clothes disappear
From now on we are hidden, until we let us be found again,

You don't know me at all

And all the girls that sing along go "yeah yeah yeah"

You shameless good-for-nothing
You vile, shameless girl
In my house
