The best lyrics of 2009?

Last year's best single was Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)" according to Washington Post humor columnist Gene Weingarten.

Why? The phrase "shouldaputa."

I'll second that.

And though it's still too early to tell, I think this year's best phrase could very well be "steppin' on leprechauns" from "Boom Boom Pow" by the Black Eyed Peas (pictured).

Think about it: Steppin' on leprechauns!

I love it! It just rolls right off your tongue.
