WTF?! Wednesday – ‘Na’ is not a lyric

Today’s WTF?! Wednesday features a song I actually kind of like. Which is a little bit “le gasp”-y because it’s a devoutly pop song, and I tend to be a devoutly not-pop person. Like, to the extent that someone said, in reference to me, “She doesn’t look like the type who would buy the new Beyoncé CD.” Which I’m not. But still… in what way does the type who would buy the new Beyoncé CD look different from me? What, exactly, does a Beyoncé fan look like?

Ohh, I see the difference now...

But I digress.

This pop song has recently come back into my consciousness and immediately earned a top slot on WTF?!W. It’s a Gwen Stefani song… you know you know the one. It’s catchy, it’s quirky, it’s cute… it’s got some really crap-tastic lyrics.

"Yeah, they're real... I don't think they *make* fake abs, do they?"

Which isn’t to say that this particular song doesn’t have a couple of KA lyrics as well, but the ones I’m talking about today are so bad as to be unforgivable. Each line of this section makes no sense in the context of the song, the section itself, or reality. NONE. nada. Zero sense is made. I’m pretty sure that everyone’s reaction, upon hearing this song for the first time, was literally to say “WTF?!”

Oh, and… just a warning, this song is going to be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. My sincerest apologies.

If I was a rich girl
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
See, I’d have all the money in the world
If I was a wealthy girl
