The Killers Top This List Of The ‘Weirdest’ Song Lyrics Ever, Say Humans (Not Dancer)

When I think of “weird” song lyrics, I think of, well, I don’t think of them, because I’m not sure what that means. “I don’t know about you but I’m feeling 22” might seem odd to a crusty 52-year-old punk, but “kill kill kill kill kill the poor” is probably off-putting to a teenage princess. So when Blinkbox Music asked 2,000 adults to name the “weirdest” lyrics of all-time, literally every song ever written was eligible.

Naturally, they went with the Killers.

1. The Killers, “Human”
“Are we human, or are we dancer?”

2. The Beatles, “I Am the Walrus”
“I am the eggman, they are the eggmen, I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob.”

3. Michael Jackson, “Earth Song”
“What about elephants? Have we lost their trust?”

4. Lionel Richie, “All Night Long”
“Tom bo li de se de moi ya, yeah jambo jambo.”

5. Carly Rae Jepsen, “Call Me Maybe”
“Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad.”

6. Black Eyed Peas, “Boom Boom Pow”
“Beats so big I’m stepping on leprechauns.”

7. Duran Duran, “The Reflex”
“The reflex is an only child, he’s waiting in the park.”

8. Wham! “Club Tropicana”
“Club Tropicana, drinks are free, fun and sunshine, there’s enough for everyone, all that’s missing is the sea.”

9. Taylor Swift, “Love Story”
“Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter, and my daddy said stay away from Juliet.”

10. Oasis, “Champagne Supernova”
“Slowly walking down the hall, faster than a cannonball.”

Good thing Weird Al never parodied “Human” — the world might have collapsed in on itself.
