Lyric pranks are all the rage at the moment and they’re super easy to carry out.
We’ve got some awesome songs for lyric pranks to help you get started with this harmless and hilarious style of prank.
What Is A Lyric Prank?
A lyric prank is when you text someone the opening line from a song, and when they reply, you text the next line and then after their response, the next and so on until you either run out of lyrics or they realize what’s going on?
A good song for lyric pranks opens with a conversational touch, so that the “victim” is put at ease and starts a conversation with sincerity and authenticity.
This is one of the easiest songs for lyric pranks for those getting started because it opens with “Hello?” and thus, the person on the other end is going to expect a regular chat.
Of course, you don’t have to wait with this one, if you don’t get a quick reply, just fire off “Can you hear me?” and go from there.
Can You Feel The Love Tonight
This is a great lyric prank song to use with someone that you either have a crush on, have a romantic connection with or an ex that you still get on with.
“Now here you go again, you say you want your freedom,” might strike fear into the heart of a cheating lover or being a charming opening line for a crush and it might just make a good friend laugh.
Like Adele, this is an easy one to get started with “Hello, hello baby” is a good opening line and then the rest of the lyrics are crazy enough to confuse and then have them laughing when they work out what’s going on.
Don’t Stop Me Now
Send this to your one and only and they’re soon going to be wanting to know what, exactly, it is that you plan on doing that they shouldn’t stop you doing?
“You should take it as a compliment, That I got drunk and made fun of the way you talk”.
It is a great opener for a lyric prank.
Never Gonna Give You Up
There’s never a bad time to Rick-roll someone.
It makes for a solid lyric prank.
Another song that begins with “Hello? Hello?” but then gets dark pretty quickly.
Any Floyd fan is going to roll about with mirth when they work it out.
“Do you have the time to listen to me whine?”
Enough said, right?
See You Again
The lyrics sound like you’re encouraging a friend to head out for the evening.
It works really well as a lyric prank.
If your “victim” works out your lyric prank, don’t worry, they’re still going to find it pretty funny and you can always try another song next time around.
Lyric pranks work best when you pick a song that the recipient isn’t likely to be familiar with.
