Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: lee rix

Sentence: As he aged and started losing his hearing, George found listening to songs on the oldies radio harder to do. The main reason was the strange leericks written for each tune. He could never figure out why Tammy sang, "Stan, bite your man" or why Johnny Rivers sang, "Secret Asian Man" or why Bon Jovi sang, "You give love a bandaid"or why Jimi Hendrix sang, "Scuse me while I kiss this guy". And every time he heard CCR's Bad Moon Rising, "there's a bathroom on the right"...he found he needed to use one.

Etymology: Leer (a suggestive or sneering look or grin;a facial expression of contempt or scorn; the upper lip curls) & Lyrics(the text or words of a popular song or musical-comedy number) & Icks (yucky things)
