5 Seconds of Summer: She Looks So Perfect

Music. Let’s talk about it for a minute. Has anyone else noticed the influx in music with stupid lyrics these days? The rate is increasing so fast that I can’t even think of an analogy for it! If you can think of a funny one, please post it in the comments. I’m always up for a laugh!

Anyway, music is driving me insane. On a positive note, my index finger is getting a fabulous workout from changing stations every 2 seconds!

Know who else goes insane? My friends. Quite possibly because I complain to them about music and how stupid lyrics are these days. My friends don’t listen to the words. They like music for the beat or because “it’s catchy” or something like that. I guess I’m different from my friends because I need good music and good lyrics to like a song! Why settle for just one when you can have both?!?

This song only has catchy music.

Anyway, let’s examine the lyrics to this song. Oh, and I apologize in advance. I couldn’t figure out a way to write any of this in a classy way!


 

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey

 

Standard opening. No complaints with that.

 

Simmer down, simmer down

They say we’re too young now to amount to anything else

But look around

We work too damn hard for this just to give it up now

If you don’t swim, you’ll drown

But don’t move, honey

 

What the… Are they plotting murder? They want her to stop swimming so she’ll drown! Crackheads.

 

You look so perfect standing there

In my American Apparel underwear

And I know now, that I’m so down

Your lipstick stain is a work of art

I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart

And I know now, that I’m so down (hey!)

 

Let’s imagine this little scenario… He’s been working hard all day at band practice. Jumping around, maybe walking around town, sweating it up. All. Day. Long. Naturally, nature calls and he uses the restroom multiple times throughout the day to urinate and crap, underwear rubbing against his butt all day long afterwards. Absorbing any missed fecal matter and residual stench. Maybe he doesn’t dab after urinating so his underwear absorbs that too. After work he meets up with his love interest, they have sex and then afterwards she’s putting on that same underwear. Do you see what I’m getting at, folks?

 

Are you grossed out yet? You should be.

 

Hey, hey!

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey

 

Still nothing to say about this. Sorry to disappoint.

 

Let’s get out, let’s get out

‘Cause this deadbeat town’s only here just to keep us down

 

Yes, the town was only founded decades before you came into existence in the hopes that one day it will keep you down. Diabolical! Get real.

 

While I was out, I found myself alone just thinking

If I showed up with a plane ticket

And a shiny diamond ring with your name on it

Would you wanna run away too?

‘Cause all I really want is you

 

She should run away alright, in the opposite direction!

 

You look so perfect standing there

In my American Apparel underwear

And I know now, that I’m so down

I made a mixtape straight out of ’94

I’ve got your ripped skinny jeans lying on the floor

And I know now, that I’m so down

 

Were these guys even alive in ’94?

 

Hey!

Hey, hey!

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey

 

Hey, hey, we’re the monkeys… Actually, I apologize for insulting The Monkeys like that. They actually had way more talent than this group. I’m also sorry for insulting monkeys in general. Monkeys are actually intelligent. And cute.

 

You look so perfect standing there

In my American Apparel underwear

And I know now, that I’m so down

Your lipstick stain is a work of art

I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart

And I know now, that I’m so down

 

He has her named tattooed in an arrow heart. I think we all know what that means. It means breaking up is inevitable and then he’ll have to either get the tattoo removed or have it covered up with a unicorn or something. By the way, American Apparel liked that they were mentioned in this song and they think women look perfect in their underwear too. Their disgusting urine stained, fecal stenched underwear. Somehow I don’t think we’ll be seeing that in any of the American Apparel advertisements.

 

The end.
