    Hey. Hey. English is your first language. Google it!
    That's too much like wanting your homework done for you.
    You don't need the help of having esoteric aspects of English-speaking culture explained to you.

    While we are at it...
    Could this be considered ad dadaism?

    aha
    aha
    aha
    What you will and what you won't
    What you do and what you don't
    What you can and what you can't
    This is what you need to know:
    Loved you though it didn't show
    Ich liebe dich nicht, du liebst mich nicht, aha
    Ich liebe dich nicht, du liebst mich nicht, aha
    Ich liebe dich nicht, du liebst mich nicht, aha
    Ich liebe dich nicht, du liebst mich nicht, da da da
    da da da
    da da da
    da da da
    Da da da I don't love you you don't love me
    Da da da I don't love you you don't love me
    Da da da I don't love you you don't love me
    Da da da I don't love you you don't love me

    According to this site (click here),
    Dada was an Art movement with its peak in 1916-1920s. This movement was established as a position against the War, and particularly World War I. They saw all the negativity of the war. They also were against the Art. It was a protest against beauty, because Art didn't save civilization from wars.
    According to this site,
    The movement known as Dada was born in Zurich, Switzerland and was primarily created as a backlash to the traditional views of culture, art, and literature. The first group of Dadaists sought to eliminate all forms of reason and logic due of the atrocities caused by World War I.
    According to this one,
    This artistic movement began in 1916, or thereabouts, in the city of Z黵ich, Switzerland. It was created by a group of artists who had migrated from other countries for various reasons. Some felt oppressed. Some were banished for expressing themselves. Others were social misfits.

    The Dada movement was a protest against oppressive governments that tried to shut up the creative muse and the independent spirit. Dadaists preached and created art that retaliated against the folly of war1. They had unconventional public demonstrations and exhibitions of work that made many stand up and take notice. They provoked a strong emotional response.
