It might be a dumb question, but do English-speaking ppl really understand all of songs' words? Becuase I've noticed that some of em don't. Just wanna make sure I'm not wrong

Nope! Certainly not because a lot of it is mumbo jumbo!

I agree: we don't all understand all the words of all the songs sung in English. Often what we think we've heard is quite different to what the singer though (s)he sung. Here's an interesting site with some misheard lyrics.

It depends on the song and the singer. Some of them sing clearly and have meaningful words, while others sing meaningless songs and/or jumble their words.

Are all languages like that?
