A Guy Used iOS 8 QuickType To Write A Song And It's Pretty Good

The new iOS 8 QuickType function is supposed to help iPhone users text faster by predicting what they'll say next. But now it's helping one YouTube artist write music.

Jonathan Mann, a YouTube artist who tries to write a song per day, used the iPhone's new autocomplete keyboard to write all the lyrics of one of his recent tracks. The song is appropriately titled "iOS Autocomplete Song."

To create the lyrics, Mann opened up his Notes app, selected the suggested "The" and then let autocomplete compose the rest, tapping back and forth across the three options in a rhythm. After nearly two minutes of one sentence, Mann opened up a new sheet and started over with "I'm," so that the song could take a new direction.

QuickType, which is found above the iPhone's traditional keyboard, tries to predict what you want to type based on the words you've already typed in your message, your past conversations and your writing style, according to Apple.

The resulting lyrics don't make a ton of sense, but there are some choice lines. Our favorite? "I am so glad to see my life and the only one who has been the most important thing." Here are the rest of them:

The fact I can get it right away
with the best of the year and the best of the year
and the other hand is the only thing that would have to go back
and the other hand is the only thing that would have to go back
and the best way of saying
the best thing about it
and it was not the only one of my life
and death in the morning to all the way you want

a boyfriend is so good to be a good day for
a few weeks ago I have a lot more
than one of my life and the best thing to me
that I have no clue who they are the same
as I am so glad to see my life

and the only one who has been the most important
thing is the only thing that could have a great way
to the best of the best part is that it would mean
the absolute world to me and my life

I love you so much for me
and the other side of the year
of my favorite part of the best of luck
with the same thing to say I have a great day

for the best thing to me that the best thing ever
when you are the same thing to say
I have a good time
with the same thing
as the only thing
that I can get
the same
as a result of the day

I'm at work on my iPhone
is not the best of all time favorite
song by them in a statement
issued after a few weeks
and the best way of saying the government
of national unity government
in exile and a few years ago

when the best way of saying
that it would mean the world
and I don't have a lot more fun
if it is the only thing
that would have a great way
to the point where the best way
of saying the government of a sudden it won't
let me get my nails done

and over

and I don't have a lot more to come out and about to get
the hang of it all day today
I am a huge fan of you
are so cute
when he said the government has said

he had to go back and forth between
a rock and roll on my way home from work
to be able to do that for me and I have to be able
to do it again
I have to go back

in my head
hurts so bad
but the fact
i can see you
soon enough for you and your a great day
to day and night with the best of the best thing ever
I go back and the other side of the year
before I go on the way
