I've heard people say before "I don't really like the lyrics (or may not even agree with them), but the beat is really good/catchy so I like the song."
However, I've also heard people say they really enjoy the lyrics and criticize music with "poorly written" lyrics.
With songs like One Week,
Or on the other end of the spectrum, "extreme" screaming,
they can be often hard to understand, yet people still like them. Likewise, people like songs in different languages as well. How important are lyrics to you to enjoy a song?

I am probably the worst person ever at singing wrong lyrics so I suppose that means I'm more of a beat and instrumental appreciator.. but then when it's late and I have random playlists playing at bedtime I really tend to pay closer attention to the lyrics and it's the combination that makes a song one of my favorites.1
