Lyrics
I"ve got some useless but important information
Got a hot tip on a filly in the third
Skyping with a pretty girl
Who lives halfway around the world
Won"t be long "til everybody"s heard
I have sworn and I cannt reveal my sources
I can tell you though, that it"s not Nancy Grace
I"ve been forced to change my plans
Won"t be travelin" to Sudan
My destination could be outer s***e

Where am I bound, it don"t matter
Pocket dialing halfway "cross the nation
What do I hear? Mindless chatter
All this useless and important information

There are camera crews for blocks outside her trailer
The whole thing"s going viral as we sing
Are they fake or are they real
Looks like her boyfriend cut a deal
She"ll be Dancing With The Stars before spring

You see, she spent her whole Katrina check on implants
Crisis over destiny fulfilled
Blue tarp or silicone
Either way the money"s gone
I guess there"s more than one way to rebuild
Who really cares? Trillions twitter
I can"t comprehend the t**illation
Breakin" news, world"s in the s******
Covering useless and important information

Gold starts out in the ground "til very clever men
Dig it up, then weight it, they they bury it again
Mostly comes from Africa and ends up in Fort Knox
Only gets its value from the guards and chains and locks
Pretty rocks

Where am I bound, it don"t matter
Pocket dialing halfway "cross the nation
What do I hear? Mindless chatter
All this useless and important information

Where am I bound, it don"t matter
Whole world"s now viewed with car wreck fascination
If I were you I"d just keep driving
Past all this useless and important information

All this useless and important information...
Useless...
Important...
Useless...
Totally useless...
Important
