The Lyrics

What makes a good meme?
No longer just the method of the nerds
Now ev'ryone takes pics and slaps some words on
But some of you may ask "What do I need?
I want to get some traffic to my feed"
The first thing that you'll need is a great template
Make one from scratch? Do it, you'll regret
No-one will get the joke if they don't know the base
At least for now, might have to wait

Ev'rybody needs jokes for attention
Ev'rybody needs clear, white text
Ev'rybody needs some funny image
Ev'rybody needs to click on "Send"

These are the things, these are the things
The things that memes are made of
These are the things, these are the things
The things that memes are made of

It's assembled, but will it catch fire? Wait
Takes some time, don't play the numbers game
'Cause, 'cause, 'cause no-one will care
About the constant poster there

Ev'rybody needs good innovation
Ev'rybody needs more than trends
Ev'rybody needs some decent spacin'
Ev'rybody needs not-a-flood, friend

These are the things, these are the things
The things that memes are made of
These are the things, these are the things
The things that memes are made of
They should be funny, mean to no-one
Though if they're a douche, go nuts
These are the things, these are the things
The things that memes are made of

Text blocks on screen, your tweet travels, good times
Hope you didn't steal a good meme, would be bad times

These are the things, these are the things
The things that memes are made of
These are the things, these are the things
The things that memes are made of (everybody needs weird situations)
These are the things, these are the things
The things that memes are made of (everybody needs new applications)
These are the things, these are the things
The things that memes are made of (everybody needs communication)
These are the things, these are the things
The things that memes are made of (everybody needs odd combinations)
These are the things, these are the things
The things that memes are made of (everybody needs few explanations)
These are the things, these are the things
The things that memes are made of

I'm serious about that last point. After all, as the Joker says, if you have to explain the joke, there is no joke!
