1. TLC "No Scrubs"

What are some other songs that literally attempt to define something or other in the lyrics?

(Is there a thread for this?)

I assume we're not counting the many songs that define a particular dance / set of dance moves?

A monster is an imaginary animal compounded of incongruous elements. Says that in the book. I looked it up. That's what it says in the dictionary. Sounds like a dictionary phrase. Sometimes you can tell when things come from the dictionary (David Thomas - Monster Walks the Winter Lake)

And the meteor's just what we see
And the meteoroid is a stone that's devoid of the fire that propelled it to thee

God is a concept
By which we measure
Our pain

9. Car Seat Headrest, "Wild Young Inhumans":

Earlier in the song I used the term "galvanistic," and galvanism is the concept, uh, the obsolete scientific theory that there is a kind of electricity flowing through our bloodstreams, and that was our life force. I used the term because I came across it in Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein", and that book is sort of an exploration of the theme of creating a character or making up a person. So I used the term "galvanistic" to allude to that book as a sort of symbol of how I, like, created you as a character, by pretending that I know a lot more about you than I actually do, and also to refer to the fact that I've fall—fallen in love with the characters you've created in, uh, your body of work

Where hydrogen is built into helium at a temperature of millions of degrees
