The Lyrics

"Explain memes to me!" "I don't think that's possible" "How? Why?" "Well..." (music swells)
If you don't know memes by no-ow
You will never, never, never kno-ow memes
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Internet's a large place, du-u-ude
The creation of memes is swift yet fleetin', true
Yes, you should know the av'rage meme doesn't last lo-o-o-ong
If you don't follow hundreds of Tumblrs, you'll never know
Where that frog unicycle thingy originated from, that's right
They just pop out of the ether, always confusin' as shite

If you don't know memes by no-ow (if you do-on't know memes)
You will never, never, never kno-ow memes (no you won't)
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
If you don't know memes by no-ow
You will never, never, never kno-ow memes
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

It's fine if you don't know them, du-u-u-ude
Even I get confused at times, too
Just believe me, it's not worth it, du-u-u-ude
As soon as you know one hist'ry, another meme pops up, it's true
Some memes are ancient hist'ry, some of them continue to thrive
Don't give me a questionnaire, just deal with memes flyin' by, oh

If you don't know memes by no-ow (if you do-on't know memes)
You will never, never, never kno-ow memes (no you won't)
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
If you don't know memes by no-ow (you)
You will never, never, never kno-ow memes (will never, never, never know memes)
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (ooh)
If you don't know memes by no-ow (ooh)
You will never, never, never kno-ow memes
Ooh

I have no idea where the hell "here come dat boi" came from, nor do I particularly care. In a couple months, neither will anyone else. And then it will be "retro" and thus cool again. Maybe.
