FlourishAnyway believes there is a playlist for just about any situation and is on a mission to unite and entertain the world through song.

Hey, baby. Pop, rock, and country songs are filled with funny and even bizarre pickup lines. We have some of the best examples here. Just don't try these at home.

Hey, baby. Pop, rock, and country songs are filled with funny and even bizarre pickup lines. We have some of the best examples here. Just don't try these at home.

So a Guy Walks Into a Bar . . .

When it comes to pickup lines, you can't blame a guy for trying. Well, on second thought, you can. Pickup lines are often corny, cheesy, or downright inappropriate. And some of the most memorable ones can be found in popular songs.

Whether they're the result of a songwriter trying too hard or not hard enough, these awkward and often funny come-on attempts miss the mark for love. However, they're fun to listen to. We've got a long list of pickup line fails in pop, rock, and country songs that are guaranteed to entertain. Just promise not to use them yourself.

1. "If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body" by The Bellamy Brothers (1979)

Decades before pop princess Britney Spears ripped off their punch line, these country musicians advocated skipping the frivolous small talk and going straight to what's on your mind. For the guy in this song, it's a couple of funny and forward questions.

Pickup lines:

If I said you had a beautiful body
Would you hold it against me?
If I swore you were an angel,
Would you treat me like the devil tonight?
If I were dying of thirst
Would your flowing love come quench me?

The Bellamy Brothers borrowed their famous "beautiful body" line from American comedian Groucho Marx.

2. "In Those Jeans" by Ray Scott (2012)

This humorous country song tells the story of a gentleman-turned-bad boy who watched as the woman he was interested in was approached by a greaseball with a cheesy pickup line. The greaseball said:

"Mercy, you looking fine!
How do you get in those jeans baby, and tell me how do I?"

Rather than slap him, she applauded his B.S., and our bystander gentleman was so impressed that he adopted the pickup line for himself. Unfortunately, he learned that results may vary when he found himself in a hospital bed drinking mased taters through a straw.

3. "Ticks" by Brad Paisley (2007)

Pickup line: "I'd like to check you for ticks."

Don't fault this guy. This woman's health is his first priority. Nobody wants Lyme Disease, right?

Anyone who's outdoorsy knows what this country song implies. Tick checks require a thorough search in and around all hair, plus an investigation of the belly button, ears, waist, armpits and nether regions. You'd think his crude pickup line would be sufficient, but then the narrator gets more specific:

Don't worry, Babe, I've got your back
And I've also got your front.

Wait. Does he even know how to remove a tick if he saw one? Somebody might need to remove him in a moment:

I'll keep you safe, you wait and see
The only thing allowed to crawl all over you ... is me.

Pickup lines are attempts to start conversations in the hopes of getting to know someone better romantically.  They often include a funny or risque element.  They usually don't work.

Funny Pickup Lines: Don't Try These at Home

Too CornyWon't WorkDon't Even Try It

On a scale of 1 to America, how free are you tonight?

Is your middle name Gilette? Because you're the best a man can get.

Is your dad a preacher? Beause girl, you’re a blessing.

Treat me like a pirate and gimme that booty.

Well, here I am. What were your other two wishes?

There must be something wrong with my eyes. I can’t take them off you.

Is your name Ariel? Because we mermaid for each other.

Roses are red, violets are blue, lava is hot and so are you.

If you were a triangle you’d be acute one.

Are you a parking ticket? 'Cause you've got FINE written all over you.

Can I have your picture so I can show Santa what I want for Christmas?

Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk by again?

4. "Girlfriend" by Avril Lavigne (2007)

Here's one way to pick someone up: get very instructional and in-your-face.

The narrator in this pop song has her sights set on a new man. The only problem is that he's currently taken. The sassy narrator sharpens her claws and insults her revial. She demands that her new guy ditch the girlfriend and never say her name again.

Pickup line:

Hey! Hey! You! You!
I don’t like your girlfriend!
No way! No way!
I think you need a new one
Hey! Hey! You! You!
I could be your girlfriend.

5. "It Is What It Is" by Kacey Musgraves (2013)

It's probably not love between these exes, but it is what it is and that's ... friends with benefits. There's such honesty in someone communicating that you're the person they're calling because they feel horny and bored.

Pickup line:

... I ain't got no one sleeping with me,
And you ain't got nowhere that you need to be,
Maybe I love you,
Maybe I'm just kind of bored,
It is what it is
'Til it ain't anymore ... .

6. "Last Night Again" by Steel Magnolia (2010)

The couple in this country love song know one another from last night. They see each other in the bar again and want a second helping.

The woman issues the following pickup line, trying to get their party started:

Boy, if you wanna know the things I've been thinking
You'd be meeting me outside.

7. "In Those Jeans" by Ginuwine (2003)

Here's some more dirty talk about tight jeans, this time in an R&B song. Seriously, guys. Can't you be a little less creepy? The guy compliments the woman's thunder thighs, tells her she looks scrumptious, and delivers this hopeful pickup line:

Lookin' good, plenty tight
Is there room?
Any more room for me
In those jeans?

8. "I Don't Even Know Your Name" by Alan Jackson (1994)

The narrator in this country song finds himself in a roadhouse drinking too much tequila and throwing around a pickup line at a waitress: "I'm in love with you baby, and I don't even know your name."

But then his hilarious love story goes incredibly wrong. The tequila takes hold and before he knows it, he's married to another waitress who is missing her front tooth. He pleads ignorance, however, admitting, "I've never been too good with all those sexual games."

"Is your name Wi-Fi ? Cause I'm feeling a connection."  No, that won't work.

"Is your name Wi-Fi ? Cause I'm feeling a connection." No, that won't work.

9. "Dancing in the Sheets" by Shalamar (1984)

Yikes! Slow down. Talk about going from 0 to 100.

The narrator in this pop song spots a girl in a nightclub—someone he's seen before. He asks her to dance, then delivers some major pickup lines that will make you wonder whether she winds up in his trunk later on:

Grab your coat and wave goodbye to your friends
I want to take you where the night never ends.
I feel the need to sweep you off of your feet
You and me, we should be dancing in the sheets.

10. "Father Figure" by George Michael (1988)

This pop hit definitively has a creepy vibe to it, especially these lyrics: "Sometimes love can be mistaken for a crime." Okay, eww. Just. Eww.

This guy issues a pickup line offering to play daddy to his girlfriend, and apparently it resonated because the song was an international sensation:

I will be your father figure.
Put your tiny hand in mine.
I will be your preacher teacher.
Anything you have in mind, baby.

11. "Romeo" by Dolly Parton, Billy Ray Cyrus, Pam Tillis, Tanya Tucker, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Kathy Mattea (1993)

Throw some water on Dolly and her middle-aged galpals because they've become overheated. Here's a pickup line you just cannot unhear:

My temperature keeps risin'
Every time we meet.
I may not be in love,
But let me tell you
I'm in heat.

You really must catch this video to get the song's full effect of mullet-wearing Billy Ray Cyrus as Romeo, wearing cutoff motorcycle gloves.

"Hey, what's your favorite silverware? Because I like to spoon." Oh, please stop.

"Hey, what's your favorite silverware? Because I like to spoon." Oh, please stop.

12. "Hey, Good Lookin'" by Hank Williams Sr. (1951)

In this classic country song, Hank Sr. croons a couple of pickup lines in the hopes of snagging the girl he's got a crush on. He's willing to throw out his little black book if she'll keep steady company with him.

Pickup line:

Say hey, good lookin' whatcha got cookin'?
How's about cookin' something up with me?
Hey, sweet baby don't you think maybe ...
We can find us a brand new recipe?

13. "The Fireman" by George Strait (1984)

It's a public service, folks. That's what the guy in this country song is doing by romancing the lonely ladies. Full of sexual references, this song features a cowboy full of bravado who explains the power of his lifesaving magnetism in this pickup line:

They call me the fireman, that's my name.
Making my rounds all over town, putting out old flames.
Well everybody'd like to have a what I got.
I can cool 'em down when they're smoldering hot.
I'm the fireman, that's my name.

Don't even try a pickup line on this cowgirl.  She's a lady who will rope and wrangle you.

Don't even try a pickup line on this cowgirl. She's a lady who will rope and wrangle you.

14. "Pickup Truck" by Shane Yellowbird (2006)

This lonely guy likes to cruise the streets in his beat up pickup truck after 2 a.m. and hit on pretty girls outside of the local bars. But from the sound of his pickup lines, he needs a tune up.

He uses the cringe-worthy line, "Are you from Tennesse? 'Cuz baby, you're the only 10 I see" as well as, "I need a map 'cuz I'm lost in your eyes."

15. "Why'd You Come in Here Lookin' Like That" by Dolly Parton (1989)

Here's that ole' Dirty Dolly again, treating those poor cowboys like sides of meat. She's in a bar when she spots her ex in his cowboy hat and his painted-on jeans.

Lady that she is, she compliments his little behind as well as his big ideas, then she delivers her flirty pickup line:

Why'd you come in here lookin' like that
When you could stop traffic in a gunney sack?
Why you're almost givin' me a heart attack
When you waltz right in here lookin' like that.

16. "Call Your Girlfriend" by Robyn (2010)

The woman in this pop song is ready to bust up a relationship to get what she wants. As a pickup line delivered to the guy in her crosshairs, she issues some bossy breakup advice:

Call your girlfriend
It's time you had the talk
Give your reasons
Say it's not her fault
But you just met somebody new.

"Well, country man, I just happen to be looking for a man who can salt-cure a good ham."

"Well, country man, I just happen to be looking for a man who can salt-cure a good ham."

17. "Country Man" by Luke Bryan (2007)

You better grab this dude quick, girls because he's a special one. He informs the ladies that his talents include salt-curing hams and hot-wiring tractors. And he wants to get busy with you in the deer stand.

Judge his unique pickup line for yourself:

Hey, I'm a country man
I can wrestle hogs and gators with my two bare hands
Girl, you better move quick; I'm in high demand
Hey, baby, I'm a country man.

18. “Sleep With a Stranger” by Nikki Lane (2014)

This loose gal has her white boots and her tiny little dress on, and she's headed down to the honky tonk. But it's not the music or beer that she's after.

Just so we're clear, she spells it out: "Well, tonight'd be a good night to sleep with a stranger." And with the following pickup line, she insists this hook-up will be a one and done type of thing:

And you can tell me anything you want to
Just don't call me after tonight.

19. "Sexy M.F." by Prince (1992)

There aren't too many guys who will offer to cook a woman dinner, drink her bathwater, or give her this wierd compliment: "I bet that if you threw that a** into the air it would turn into sunshine." (What was THAT all about?)

The guy in this unusual Prince pop song issues a pickup line that's as straightforward as it is sensual:

In a word or two
It's you I wanna do
No, not cha body, yo mind, you fool
Come here, Baby. Yeah, you sexy m-f-.

20. "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" by Trace Adkins (2005)

Before this song hit the country charts, nobody had heard of a badonkadonk. (That's what tacky guys who don't stand a chance call the "booty.")

The badonkadonk is what they're admiring as they ogle and catcall a woman in a bar, then shout the following pickup line to compliment her backside:

... Woo-wee
Shut my mouth, slap your grandma!
There outta be a law
Get the Sheriff on the phone.

Grandma wants to know what a "badonkadonk" is and why you're going to slap her.

Skating - Thanks for the warm compliment! I'm glad you enjoyed these. I hope the people who listen to your pickup lines know that you are quoting songs. If not, how sadly naive.

SkatingOnEggshells on April 15, 2020:

"Oh I think that I found myself a cheerleader/she's always right there when I need her" by OMI. I really liked this article -- it really made me laugh at some, and write others down for future use. My friends and I have a pickup line contest, and I am currently winning with tricking someone else into quoting "Girlfriend" by Avril Lavigne (because if you're too chicken to actually use these/ask someone out, you can always get your current crush to do it for you). I heard the song and realized it would be a great pickup line.

Then, I started thinking about what other songs could be used in the same fashion, and I started scouring the Internet for articles. Yours has been by far the best in my roughly 10 minutes of searching! Thanks for posting

Lee York - Good luck!

Lee York on September 11, 2019:

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on August 05, 2017:

James - This was sitting in my spam folder with all those crazy spell casting emails. Who knows why? I wonder if the Google gods liked your pick-up line and decided ony you should have the joy of using it? Thanks for your patience while I located it. I mean it could've been months instead of 11 days. I rarely check that spam file!

James C Moore from Joliet, IL on July 25, 2017:

I might try the following: Hi my name is James, my friends call me just the messenger, my enemies call me collect!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 20, 2017:

justthemessenger - Sorry for just now answering this, as it was inapropriately identified as spam. You'll have to let us all know if your collect call strategy works! It's funny.

Hi Flourish,Another great and interesting song choices. Thank for sharing and making me smile. Well done.

James C Moore from Joliet, IL on April 04, 2017:

I don't use pickup lines. I just tend to exaggerate in a humorous manner. However, I have a favorite pick up line from a movie. I don't remember the title of this movie or much of anything else about it. The guy would say "my name is "blank" (dont remember his name either) my friends call me "whatever" (again dont remember his nickname) but my enemies call me collect. And, no I haven't attempted this as a pickup line.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 03, 2017:

Larry Rankin from Oklahoma on April 03, 2017:

"And if you can't be with the one you love, then honey, love the one you're with."

Just awesome. So many songs I had never heard of. Your hubs are great, informative and add to my musical knowledge.

Peggy - Some topics are more challenging than others, but yep, this proves it. Thanks for stopping by!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 01, 2017:

Shyron - Is it perhaps Johnny Preston - Feel So Fine, Feel So Good? Sample lyrics: "Well you look so good / Oh baby like I know you would / Come a let me hug ya, come a let me kiss ya / Come a let me see what I been missinґ / (I feel) feel so grand (so grand) / Now that youґve come back home"

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on April 01, 2017:

I am stumped, my first thought was a song I heard my cousin singing, but I don’t know the name of it. Maybe my cousin wrote it. I just heard it that one time in the club where he and his band were playing.

It went something like this: You look so good, baby like I knew you would, come let me hug you, come let me kiss you, come let me see what I been missing….

This was such a fun song. If any of your followers know it please let me know. My cousin expired, so I can’t ask him.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 01, 2017: are correct when you said that there is a song for just about any situation. This proves it! Haha!

MsDora - I remember that one. Good one! They can break the ice, especially if humorous. A smile is a great way to start a conversation. Hope your weekend is a good one. Thank you for stopping by!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 01, 2017:

DICESI - Who knew there were so many pick up lines in songs? It's curious to me why someone would use these as conversation starters but they're fun to listen to. Thanks for reading!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 01, 2017:

Sventlana - You're a lot a fun!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 01, 2017:

Linda - I appreciate your stopping by! Glad it gave you a chuckle.

Dicesi from New York on March 31, 2017:

Such a vast list. I literally learned new songs by reading this. Some of these pick up lines definitely could work. Great Job!

Heidi Thorne from Chicago Area on March 31, 2017:

Dang! Luckily, I never had to swim in the pickup pool, but still got married. Do people really use these lines? Happy Weekend!

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on March 31, 2017:

One I remember: "Your feet must be tired, 'cause you've been running through my mind all day." The corny lines may not work for everybody; but I think if they make someone laugh (and blush), they work. What do I know?

kallini2010 from Toronto, Canada on March 31, 2017:

Do you have a hub that lists all your lists in alphabetical order so that I know how to challenge you?

My pick-up line:

"Excuse me, do you have a playlist about people who in their spare time go around and ask about playlists? Preferably out of context."

Usually, the answer is "What?"

Do you think if I say it in Chinese, it would take the edge off? (lmao - sounds Chinese)

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on March 31, 2017:

Kallini2010 - Amazingly, I do have a STEM (science, technology,engineering and math) playlist under another account (one that helps my daughter's high school engineering program): . Seriously, there are few situations that a song doesn't address!

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on March 31, 2017:

This is a very amusing article, Flourish! I love it.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on March 31, 2017:

Catherine - It was filled with country which has some really good pick up lines. Not sure why that is. Country music tends to be clever, story telling, and self-deprecating. Have a wonderful weekend filled with tomfoolery.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on March 31, 2017:

Bill - I like that one. There's a later version, a country one that features Janie Fricke and it's amazing. Have a wonderful weekend!

kallini2010 from Toronto, Canada on March 31, 2017:

This is funny!

I can't tell any pick-up lines - I judge a person before words are spoken. A cheesy, lame pick-up like is a just a confirmation that I am right in my assessment. Of course, I'm not going to bars and not being picked up, but if we include "conversation starters", I do usually so much better than them.

Typical conversation:

Me: blah, blah, blah ... [things they don't know about] ... blah, blah, blah...

He: I like you!

[past this line, they are not thinking. Come to think of it, they are not "thinking" before this line either. [Flirting is feeling].

Me: Join the club. Take a number. You are not alone. My condolences.


I don't dance for now, but in a Dancing Scene, things are very different. Being invited, dancing together breaks ice easily and you have an opportunity to decide how much you like a person while being in his arms or on his lap. It takes a conversation to a new level.


Mentioning engineers - that is hilarious! Did you make "I'm an engineer and I know it" type of play list? I was studying with them for six years, which makes me one of them... hmm... Can't remember conversation starters either. Like "Can I borrow your notes for that lecture?" The only person I wouldn't "borrow" from was my future ex-husband - he managed to write where all letters looked the same. And, romantically, he was too dry, not too romantic, but he was an OK - good husband.


Maybe Rihanna's "Rude Boy" is not exactly a pick-up line,

but I like it:

"Can you get it up?" (the big part, I'd skip),

but the first line separates boys from men, don't you think?

This was a fun one. The pick up lines made me laugh. Thanks for another great playlist. I always click the video to listen while I continue reading.

Well, I did think of one, but it's not on the list..."Come A Little Bit Closer" by Jay and the Americans.....yep, once again from the 60's. :)

Kyriaki - I love your romantic pick up story! And I love even more that it worked and you're still with him. How cute is that!?! I've heard lots of engineering ones because I worked with a lot of them as a young woman and was one of the only single females. Very awkward stuff -- pick up lines about combustion and chemical reactions. Thanks for reading.

That was one of the most entertaining articles I've ever read!

The pickup line board literally cracked me up. Hahahaha! Loved it! And, to be honest, I've heard the one with the triangle, and I think it is one of the cutest icebreakers out there. But, maybe, it's just me.

And to answer your question, story time. One day I was at a friend's party with my friends, and some guy approached and looked at me funny. So, I looked back at him back even weirder. And he just said the goofiest pick up line I've ever heard: "I am not feeling well, I need vitamin U".

I thought it was so cute; I cracked a smile. But, I politely said: "I'm sorry, I'm all out". He kissed my hand and walked away.

Minutes later, he came back with a napkin that wrote "ROUND 2", and he said: "You wanna know what's the best part of this evening? Remember the first word?"

I couldn't hear another one of his pick up lines, but this second one was actually quite tasteful. So, we started talking, and we'been together ever since.

So, I guess some lines work. It's all a matter of timing. What's the weirdest pick up line you've heard, Flourish?

Thanks for another great read!

Linda - Congratulations on nearly 40 years of marriage. I've been married to Mr. FlourishAnyway for almost 22 and we dated for 4 years before that. I've heard a pick up line or two but just gave them an eye roll, as thankfully I was with male friends at the time. I've been driving Mr. FlourishAnyway crazy this week asking him various pick up lines and has given me the stink face. I think he's ready for me to move on to my next topic! Thanks for being the first to comment. Have a great weekend.

Flourish, this is so out of my realm it isn't even funny. Never did the bar scene. Met my husband at work, and we've been together for almost 4 decades. Goodness, am I so glad to not be dealing with pickup lines or....

BUT, this was fun/funny. Just when I think you have exhausted the list of song compilation topics, you come up with yet another. You are amazing!
