I think it’s a great song for studying the present perfect tense. Here are a few examples from the song:
I have climbed … I have run … I have crawled … I have scaled … I have kissed … I have held …
In the song he’s saying that he has done all this stuff, but he still hasn’t found what he’s looking for.
Here are some examples of things that you could say with the same structure: I’ve looked everywhere but I still haven’t found it.I have applied for more than 50 jobs but I still haven’t got a job. I have asked everyone I can think of but I still haven’t raised enough money.
But I thought this comment was pretty funny. This song is about a household object that you lose and you spend half the afternoon looking for it on a weekend. He's wasted lots of perfectly good time, but he still hasn't found what he's looking for. Such a shame - I think we can all sympathize. この歌は家で一日中かけて探し物をした人についてです。 彼は多大な時間を完璧に無駄にしましたが、残念ながら still hasn't found what he's looking for。 よくある出来事で同情できます。

A man was sued by the woman next door because he called her a pig. They went to court and the judge told the man he had to pay for emotional abuse. The man asked, "Does this mean I can't call Mrs Harding a pig anymore?" The judge replied, "Of course you can't, that's why we just went through this." "Well”, the man said, "Can I call a pig Mrs Harding" "Sure, why not", the judge replied. The man then turned around, looked his neighbour and said, "Good Morning Mrs. Harding."
