There are smart songs, dumb songs, intellectual songs, party songs, and everything in between. Before getting started, lets just try to understand something – this list is meant for humor. If you happen to be a fan of mindless party songs that include lyrics like “she made us drinks to drink, we drunk em, got drunk”, then that is fine, we’re not judging you. We’re just laughing at the songs you listen to. And yes, we realize music isn’t just about lyrics. It’s about emotion and holistic appeal. But it can be pretty amusing when you look at the lyrics to your favorite song without any instrumental or rhythm. Actually, you might even start to wonder “what was the songwriter even thinking?” And truth be told, sometimes the songwriter probably wasn’t thinking, but hey, that’s art. So, don’t get offended when your favorite piece of “art” ends up on our list. As Hilary Duff would say “If the light is off, then it isn’t on.” We’re not sure how that’s relevant to the point we’re trying to make, but then again we’re not exactly sure why it is necessary to state that in a song either. She probably would have been better doing a cover of a well written song like the ones on our 25 popular songs you may not realize are cover songs. These are the 25 dumbest song lyrics ever!

“Someone left the cake out in the rain / I don’t think that I can take it / Cause it took so long to bake it / And I’ll never have that recipe again.”
