The Lyrics

Part of my "Do What You Wanna Do" self-challenge. Everyone has that one friend who thinks he's the funniest thing since [insert your favourite comedian here] but he's kind of a complete idiot. This is his poor suffering companion's reaction
Wait, was that a real joke?

Try to get me laughin', a smile isn't crackin'
Let alone the giggles, du-ude
Unlike some dumb rumours, I've a sense of humour
Still don't get the jokes from you-ou
Don't get it, don't get it, I'm ain't grinnin'
Don't get it, don't get it
I can't even, I can't even start to get it
Don't get it, don't get it
I'm ain't grinnin', don't get it, don't get it
Still ain't grinnin', though I'm tryin' hard to get it
Don't get it, don't get it

Sayin' you're a clown - prove it
Best guy to turn frowns upside down - do it
Faceed a barrage of your best jokes
So far, I've still got a frown, stupid (stupid)
Don't really know what's wrong, though
Is it the quality of the jokes?
Is it your deliv'ry style?
The point is, I haven't smirked, let alone smiled
Keep tellin' jokes, maybe you'll get a hit
Some time, time, time, time, time
The smallest chuckle might escape my lips
Just try, try, try, try, try

Wish that I was laughin' could use a knee-slappin'
But your jokes ain't workin', du-ude
Jokes about leaf-blowers, aren't blowin' me over
I don't have the slightest clue-ue
Don't get it, don't get it, I'm ain't grinnin'
Don't get it, don't get it
I can't even, I can't even start to get it
Don't get it, don't get it
I'm ain't grinnin', don't get it, don't get it
Still ain't grinnin', though I'm tryin' hard to get it
Don't get it, don't get it

Isn't hard, you dimwit (douche)
Jokes I get without knowledge of physics (I don't have a clue-ue)
Or old sci-fi shows or other crap (crap)
Just somethin' that will elicit (oh-oh-oh)
Giggles or somethin' to that end (that end)
Don't tell me that all your friends (your friends)
Would totally laugh at your cracks all day (all day)
That crap just ain't convincin' (-vincin')
Not askin' for a complete giggle fit
Just try, try, try, try, try
At the least, the slightest smirk from my lips
Some time, time, time, time, time

Given you a chance 'n' I'm still far from laughin'
Your material's weak, du-ude
This is quite the bummer, love a good gut-buster
If this was your job, you're scre-ewed
Don't get it, don't get it, I'm ain't grinnin'
Don't get it, don't get it
I can't even, I can't even start to get it
Don't get it, don't get it
I'm ain't grinnin', don't get it, don't get it
Still ain't grinnin', though I'm tryin' hard to get it (one laugh, mate)
Don't get it, don't get it

Give it up, none of your jokes work a bit
Half of them work off prejudice
I don't laugh at jokes that assume I'm sexist
Racist, homophobic, any of that shit
The rest are dumb, don't make any friggin' sense
And the best response to that isn't to say I'm dense
No, don't tell me thirty
More of these cracks, let me say this firmly:
A joke that assumes it's audience hates somethin'
Or hates somethin' or basically needs explainin'
Is the kind of joke that should just remain a secret
Of course, that's my humble opinion, my word ain't sacred
Tell other people jokes, not just me, mate (oh-oh)
Maybe those other people won't think that you're lame (oh-oh)
Dunno if that'll happen, but go (oh-oh)
And bug other people with your damn jokes (oh)
I just don't get what's so funny 'bout this (woo)
Don't try, try, try, try, try
To explain the joke, that just ruins it
Goodbye, bye, bye, bye, bye (piss off)

Your jokes, I can't stand 'em (woah), no smilin' or laughin' (not one laugh)
Not one's been a hit, it's true-ue (they've all been real duds, like, you know)
Still you're here, I'm wond'rin' (you're still here?) why you're even both'rin' (and don't explain the details)
Get it through your thick skull, du-ude (that makes the joke fail, throws the routine off the rails)
Don't get it, no, don't get it, no (don't get it, don't get it)
I'm ain't grinnin', don't get it, don't get it
I can't even, I can't even start to get it
Don't get it, don't get it
I'm ain't grinnin', don't get it, don't get it
Still ain't grinnin', though I'm tryin' hard to get it
Don't get it, don't get it, nah

Tried, tried, tried, tried, tried, tried, tried
Don't get it, don't get it, no
Why, why, why, why won't you go, oh-oh
I've had enough of your crap, yeah, yeah-yeah
I don't find you funny, yeah, yeah-yeah
You might not like that, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
That's my opinion, buddy, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

What I don't get is how in the hell was this song a hit? No video, boring beat (though it's DJ Mustard, that's a given), nothing really interesting outside repeating "don't tell 'em" over and over and neither Jeremih or YG is a household name, so what gives? It could be I'm just bitter that this generic pile of crap made it into the USOP instead of Chandelier, who knows.
