The Lyrics

My annual year in review parody...hope you like!
Original Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dMmNcT3ouo
Woohoohoo
Woohoohoo

This year, we’ve seen it all
Gas prices rise and fall
We knew Clay was gay
Palin by Tina Fey
The US still at war
Don’t know what we’re there for
Hancock and Iron Man
What economic plan?

Who remembers Joe the Plumber?
But one guy is more bizarre
Remember the pregnant man?
That guy went way too far
Axl finally released “Chinese Democracy”
This year messed up our lives
And nothing has been alright since

Guy Ritchie, Madonna
McCain versus Obama
Jonas Brothers and Miley
Michael Phelps cleaned house at Beijing
Musicals in high school
Heath Ledger was just so cool
Cause things really weren’t that great
In 2 thou, 2 thou, 2008

Woohoohoo
2008
Woohoohoo

We got all new classics
Wall-E, The Dark Night
We laughed at Tropic Thunder
Do not forget Twilight
We all said “Yes We Can!”
When elected a black man
OJ’s now in jail
Eliot Spitzer did not prevail

Dancing with the Stars, Cloris Leachman
I’d move to Alaska just cause of Sarah Palin
There was Metallica, AC/DC
Who will rule late night? Conan? Leno?
(on the news there was)

Ritchie, Madonna
McCain versus Obama
Jonas Brothers and Miley
Michael Phelps cleaned house at Beijing
Musicals in high school
Heath Ledger was just so cool
Cause things really weren’t that great
In 2 thou, 2 thou, 2008
Woohoohoo

Brett Favre just cannot stop
Toys from China, made with lead, please don’t shop
And Katy Perry was hard to ignore
Please make this stop, stop
Stop!
Think back to

Ritchie, Madonna
McCain versus Obama
Jonas Brothers and Miley
Michael Phelps cleaned house at Beijing
Musicals in high school
Heath Ledger was just so cool
Cause things really weren’t that great
In 2008
Woohoohoo

Guy Ritchie, Madonna
McCain versus Obama
Jonas Brothers and Miley
Michael Phelps cleaned house at Beijing
Musicals in high school
Heath Ledger was just so cool
Cause things really weren’t that great
In 2 thou, 2 thou, 2008
