THE DUMBER THEY COME...

A wisenheimer has you meet her folks when you call 
The brainless baby always keeps you down in the hall

Stephen Derosa had a big hit in the 1920s with a song called "The Dumber They Come, The More I Like 'Em."  Modern women probably spit and hiss just at the title and concept, but basically its about a guy who likes stupid girls because, well, all he's after is a good time.
This sort of ties into my previous post on Prey vs Treasure, because it tells the same story, but from a man's perspective.  This is a hunter, and he's after prey.  You know why he likes dumb girls?  I'll let him explain:
The clever girl will want to know if you mean to wed
The dumb ones never think of looking that far ahead
That's why the dumber they come, the better I like 'em
'Cause the dumb ones know how to make love

Dumb girls aren't interested in their life, the future, or what it means to be with a man, only the fun they can have.  Dumb girls are prey: get what you want from them and move on.  He doesn't like smart girls because they want to be more than just a piece of ass.
Because its written in the 1920s, the song is a bit more subtle than that, but basically its what the song comes down to.  So the feminist reaction "how dare he!" and "strong girls are smart!" aren't really thinking this through.  The smart girl in his song is the one that's not interested in just a hot guy for a night of passion, she's after a future.  The dumb girls are just an easy tumble.
And the feminist calls it smart to be the grrl who uses sex for fun like the men and cares nothing for the future or relationships.  This guy would cheer and stamp his feet.  They call girls who want to settle down and make a life dumb and repressed, oppressed.  This guy would cheer that, too.
So I guess if you want to be dumb....
I may look simple but I want you to know
I've been to college, I'm full of knowledge
I'm right at home with brainy men and them my wisdom I show
But when there's clever girls around I get up and go

Those educated babies are a bore
I'm gonna say what I said many times before
Oh, the dumber they come, the better I like 'em
'Cause the dumb ones know how to make love

A wisenheimer has you meet her folks when you call
The brainless baby always keeps you down in the hall
Oh, the dumbbells I've met have won beauty prizes
They look like angels sent from above

The clever girl will want to know if you mean to wed
The dumb ones never think of looking that far ahead
That's why the dumber they come, the better I like 'em
'Cause the dumb ones know how to make love

Oh, the dumber they come, the better I like 'em
'Cause the dumb ones know how to make love

The smart girl's speaking Greek and other languages too
But the dumb girl's only language is, who's poochy poochy is you?
Oh, the dumbbells I've met have won beauty prizes
They look like angels sent from above

You start by squeezing clever girls, you're soon on the shelf
But when you're with dumb Doris you can just be yourself
That's why the dumber they come, the better I like 'em
'Cause the dumb ones know how to make love
