Stoopid lyrics

Here is another installment of my blog feature "Stoopid lyrics" where I share with you a well-known song with lyrics that don't make sense.

Keep in mind this doesn't mean the song is stoopid or that I don't like the song. In fact, most of the time I like the songs and only discover they contain stoopid lyrics when I try to sing along.  But in all cases, the lyrics make absolutely no sense.

4 Minutes
performed by Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Timbaland

Come on boy I've been waiting for somebody to pick up my stroll

[Justin:]
Now don't waste time, give me desire, tell me how you wanna roll

[Madonna:]
I want somebody to speed it up for me then take it down slow
There's enough room for both

[Justin:]
Girl I can hit you back just gotta show me where it's at
Are you ready to go? (Are you ready to go?)


[Madonna and Justin:]
If you want it
You've already got it
If you thought it
It better be what you want

If you feel it
It must be real just
Say the word and
I'm gonna give you what you want

[Madonna:]
Time is waiting

[Justin:]
We only got four minutes to save the world

[Madonna:]
No hesitating
Grab a boy

[Justin:]
Go grab your girl

[Madonna:]
Time is waiting

[Justin:]
We only got four minutes to save the world

[Madonna:]
No hesitating

[Justin:]
We only got four minutes huh four minutes
So keep it up keep it up
Don't be a prima donna

[Madonna:]
You gotta get em a heart
Tick tock tick tock tick tock

[Justin:]
That's right keep it up keep it up
Don't be a prima donna

[Madonna:]
You gotta get em a heart
Tick tock tick tock tick tock
Sometimes I think what I need is a you intervention

Yeah

[Justin:]
And I know I can tell that you like it and that it's good
By the way that you move
Oh hey

[Madonna:]
The road to hell is paved with good intentions
Yeah

[Justin:]
But if I die tonight at least I can say I did what I wanted to do
Tell me how 'bout you?

[Madonna and Justin:]
If you want it
You've already got it
If you thought it
It better be what you want

If you feel it
It must be real just
Say the word and
I'm gonna give you what you want

[Madonna:]
Time is waiting

[Justin:]
We only got four minutes to save the world

[Madonna:]
No hesitating
Grab a boy

[Justin:]
Go grab your girl

[Madonna:]
Time is waiting

[Justin:]
We only got four minutes to save the world

[Madonna:]
No hesitating

[Justin:]
We only got four minutes huh four minutes
So keep it up keep it up
Don't be a prima donna

[Madonna:]
You gotta get em a heart
Tick tock tick tock tick tock

[Justin:]
That's right keep it up keep it up
Don't be a prima donna

[Madonna:]
You gotta get em a heart
Tick tock tick tock tick tock

[Timbaland:]
Breakdown
Yeah

[Madonna:]
Tick tock tick tock tick tock

[Timbaland:]
Yeah uh

[Madonna:]
Tick tock tick tock tick tock

[Timbaland:]
I've only got four minutes to save the world

Despite the 4 minutes they spend delivering this song, they never once indicate HOW they're going to save the world!

We have a winner - this one has always hurt my brain and seeing the lyrics only makes it worse. I still love the song though.
