The Lyrics

When I say "stereotypical YouTube thumbnail", what do you think of? Hopefully you'll choose to read this parody after you've healed from trying to bleach your brain afterwards!
Well, well, well, well, that's so lazy
This thumbnail right here, I won't click on
Well, well, well, yeah-ee-yeah (yeah-ee-yeah-eah-eah-ee-yeah-ah)
I know, la-da-da-da-da, yeah-ah, well, well
I know, I know, I know, yeah-ah (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)

After I've gone through my subscription feed
My next step's browsin' for a new thing to see
Nothin' in the search box, main page is where it is
That tends to be how I find brand new content on which I could click, yeah
But then there are the ones
With the obnoxious face that makes me wanna do a screen punch
Mouth wide open like they're tryna catch a fly
The expression made, it lacks a name, looks like their brain wants to fly
And I get why it wants to make off and go (yeah)
Therein lies such smug smarm that there's no way I'll go (huh)
And try out the vid offered to me
The only thing offered to the viewer is some mediocrity
So I'mma take care of my own brain, you get no clicks
Balls to that, save your crap I'm sure's bogus
And you can also save that "don't judge book covers" crud
I've had dealin's with that face, zero good days, they sucked

Thumbnail that's here, buddy (yeah)
I won't click on (I'll never click on) (well, well)
Thumbnail that's here, buddy (whoo)
All kinds of wrong (buddy, it's all kinds of wrong)
Thumbnail that's here, buddy (no)
I won't click on (not gonna click on) (yeah-ah)
Thumbnail that's here, buddy (it's a flop)
Appeal, ain't got

The fail ain't limited to the one face you slap on it
It's the whole caption vomit, sure, the description won't show up to comment
On what you will find if you watch, main page can't fit that in, got it
But your solution is just awkward, text just slopped in
Slapped that in like an afterthought, quick Photoshopped in
No-one wants this, you need to stop, commission artists
And then your viewers just might stay
A chance it might even entice clicks in the first place (mmm-mmm)
'Cause folks tend to stay away from this one type of vid
Where they love to tack on circles and arrows and shit
They don't want it because they treat the viewer like a twit
Algorithm tricks will only get a passive viewership
They're watchin' it, got the clicks but that is it
Play in the background, lucky if the tab it's in's active (yeah-ah)
If clicks is all you want, just an ad flow with zero skills on show
That thumbnail that's here is proof, so I'm off

Thumbnail that's here, buddy
I won't click on (no way I'll click on) (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Thumbnail that's here, buddy
Looks like brain rot

Eye gets twitchy when I see this shite in my timeline
So ugly, don't understand why it has failed to die
Great big folder they've got that's holdin' their stock picture files
Overloadin' because who's ever heard of "taste" or "style"?
Just isn't lookin' nice, why not a nice snap?
A little scenery will look sweet, no doubts 'bout that
One line of text is okay, if just to set the scene
A big improvement to your stuff, at least aesthetic'lly (no, no, no, no, no, no)
Got no advice for the vid's content, that I've not seen
Why would I go and look at it? Laid that out plainly
It could be shit, it could make ev'ry vid maker retire
I'll never know because the first look is so damn dire (oh-oh yeah-eah-eah)
Ev'ry time my eyeballs see you on my page, they veer off (yeah-ah)
If not melt into liquid so that I'll pass out from the pain
And hope that I get my brain knocked in which'll let the mem'ry go
That thumbnail that's here, buddy? It's a stain, it sucks

Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (sucks)
I know you know, well, well, yeah-ah, that your pic sucks (la-da-da-da)
I know (sucks), yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-ah (yeah-ah, your pic sucks)
Thumbnail that's here, buddy (come on), I won't click on
I know you know I know, yeah-ah (ah, la-da-da-da)
La-da-da (mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm), mmm-mmm, no, no, no, no, no, no (come on)
No, no, no, no, no (come on), buddy, buddy (oh), la-da-da-da-da-da
Thumbnail that's here, buddy, I won't click on (just scrollin' on)
Thumbnail that's here, buddy (yeah, yeah), I won't click on, on (yeah-eah-eah)
I'm scrollin' on (on), come on, looks tacky, yeah-ah
Looks tacky, buddy, oh-oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh-ooh-oh-oh, won't click on

One day you'll love me again, one day you'll love me for sure
One day you'll wake up feelin' how I've been feelin', baby, you'll knock at my door
