What’s unique about the lyric is that the words are those used most often in the Top 50 selling downloads of this year. To illustrate how I used the data to write this lyric, I've color coordinated the words in the chorus. I used the largest words on the chart for the chorus and the smaller ones for the verses. Just so you know what kind of terrible awesomeness your getting in, here's a the full song lyric:

The Hypebot Hit Song
Look, my hands gonna touch this, ain’t gonna stop me now
Imma work this, let girls believe I really get down
Take every chick back to New York and let them walk home
Imma get ya name girl, call you on the telephone
