The 'One Thing' stars also say they were "more involved" with writing for their second album.
One Direction have admitted they like to write "rude lyrics" while penning new music in the recording studio.
The 'One Thing' five-piece say they have been "more involved" with new album 'Take Me Home', compared to their 2011 debut 'Up All Night', but admit the recording process can sometimes lead to some humorous songs from the five young pop stars.
"We were more involved this time round as we were so nervous when we made the first album," band member Liam Payne revealed to the Daily Star this week. "Usually we write some rude lyrics - there's a lot of things that rhyme with poo.
"You can come out with something which someone else in the band might knock down, but it leads to something else."
The 'Live While We're Young' singers have also heaped praised on fellow UK pop star Ed Sheeran, who penned the band's new single 'Little Things'.
"Ed has become one of the best writers of our age," Liam claimed. "Every song that he's written I think, 'I wish I'd written that'.
"Each track on his album could have been a single," he added.
