The internet is full of lyrics. But the problem is that most of them are either fake or poorly written. You can’t find what you’re looking for, and it’s often difficult to parse through all the noise on sites like Rap Genius and Metro Lyrics to get down to the good stuff. Enter The Likes Of Which You’ve Never Seen: a Tumblr blog dedicated solely to finding “the funniest lyrics like real people do.”
The Likes of Which You’ve Never Seen (often shortened to TLWYWS) is a Tumblr blog that features the funniest, most ridiculous lyrics from songs like “Anaconda” by Nicki Minaj and “TiK ToK” by Ke$ha. They’re often juxtaposed with the lyrics from more serious songs like “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston.
The blog is run anonymously, and the person who runs it does not have a background in music or anything related to pop culture; they’re just someone with a lot of spare time on their hands who stumbled across this weird world and decided to share it with the rest of us.
TLWYWS is just one example of how the Internet has made it easier than ever to find things like this, and that’s something I think we should be grateful for. It might not always take much work to curate your own content anymore; you can simply stumble upon a blog like this or click on an interesting YouTube video and have a good laugh without any additional effort required at all! That feels really nice when so many people are feeling frustrated with their jobs these days because there’s too little they can do themselves in order to make themselves happy. When someone creates something as weird as TLWYWS, it makes me feel happier about my own life- even if only briefly.
It also makes me feel like people who spend too much time online don’t have any important skills in life. That’s not true, of course- a lot of things that I’ve done involve sitting and staring at screens for hours on end! But there are friends from my childhood or parents who made the most amazing free throws with no formal training whatsoever; it just takes some dedication to try new things out until you find what works best for you. TLWYWS is an example of something we found by accident- so keep looking around and see if someone else has created something wonderful before they stop making stuff altogether because nobody cares about them anymore.
like real people do lyrics
honesty from a perspective of someone who has found their passion and is striving to make the most of it.
When I was younger (maybe 12 years old?), my parents divorced and we had to move across town. It wasn’t easy on any of us; but since then, life has been pretty great overall. My dad remarried and we moved in with his new wife and her kids, which was a blessing. I got to have brothers! One of those boys is my best friend today, even though he’s not really related to me by blood.
But like all families do over time, ours became fractured too. Being the youngest of five children meant that I didn’t get much attention from them or their spouses anymore – so when they weren’t around for holidays or family events (which was most days), it made for some awkward moments because no one wanted to comment on how sad it felt without them there. Plus, as hard as everyone tried but couldn’t seem to make things work together like before our parents split up in the first place. well, let’s just say there was a lot of tension in the air. So like all good things, I guess it’s time to let go too . and move on.”
long lonely weekends.
“We moved in with his new wife and her kids, which was a blessing. I got to have brothers! One of those boys is my best friend today, even though
he’s more like my brother. I call him and he’ll come over, like a big brother should.”
“I was thirteen when we moved in with them,” she recalls. “It felt like an eternity of being lonely because they were always gone for work or other stuff.”
There are things that you don’t know what to say about until it happens to you, and then there are the people who can take your heart out by saying something so simple as ‘goodbye.’ And yet those words never hurt me quite as much as the ones spoken from someone else’s mouth: ‘you’re not coming back.'”
