Songwriting is a pretty tough business, but we guess even superstars get lazy. If you’re going to cut corners, the first place to start is the lyrics! Tons of songs have been written by the lyricists essentially hitting “cut-and-paste” over and over, but that hasn’t stopped them from becoming hits. Still, they tend to annoy the living hell out of us. And what better day to pay tribute to repetitive madness than GROUNDHOG DAY!

In case there are any of you who haven’t seen the 1993 Bill Murray classic Groundhog Day, the movie concerns poor Bill reliving the same day of his life (Groundhog Day, obvs) over and over again. And, of course, each time he wakes up to the bizarrely torturous “I Got You Babe” again and again. So in honor of tomorrow’s festivities in Punxsutawney, we’ve decided to rank the most repetitive song lyrics of all time!

For purists out there, we’ve decided to just keep it to words that have been sung over and over again. Therefore, no samples (sorry, Daft Punk), and no nonsense syllables (sorry, “Hey Jude”). Head up to the gallery above to see picks from Rihanna, Beyonce, and (everybody’s favorite) Chumbawamba. Good luck getting them out of your head…
