The Lyrics

Thanks to Ethan Mayer for the idea. And a sequel to 2004. FYI, the "Marion" mentioned in the song is Marion Cotillard, the French actress who won the Best Actress Oscar for playing Edith Piaf in "La Vie En Rose", BEP is "Black Eyed Peas", and no offense to politicians.
Do you remember the time
When Michael Jackson died
A very solemn day
For the US of A
He took too many drugs
Almost turned 51
We only mourned just one man
I'll remember what I can.

Marion became best actress
Taylor Swift became a star
Twitter became popular
In lands both near and far
Sadly, the Iraqis
Are still the enemy
Looks at the modern life
And nothing, has been...
all right since

Rob Thomas, Rihanna, even Lady Gaga
There's Taylor and Katy
The comeback of the BEP
We all entered high school
So far it isn't uncool
But I'm so preoccupied
With two thou, two thou, 2009

Movies became classics
I'll totally go there
"Proposal", "2012", and "Slumdog Millionaire"
Politics were a hoot
John McCain's one creepy dude
I'll always remember when
We got our first black president

Steelers won the Super bowl for the 6th time
And New York Yankees won World Series for the zillionth time
The Pittsburgh Penguins became champions
I'm guessing the year in sports belongs to Pittsburgh

And on the radio was…

Rob Thomas, Rihanna, even Lady Gaga
There's Taylor and Katy
The comeback of the BEP
We all entered high school
So far it isn't uncool
But I'm so preoccupied
With two thou, two thou, 2009

Speed up time, make it stop
When did Goo Goo Dolls become classic rock?
And when will Kanye become an actor?
Please make this stop, stop, STOP(tick tick tick) bring back

Rob Thomas, Rihanna, even Lady Gaga
There's Taylor and Katy
The comeback of the BEP
We all entered high school
So far it isn't uncool
But I'm so preoccupied
With two thou, two thou, 2009

Rob Thomas, Rihanna, even Lady Gaga
There's Taylor and Katy
The comeback of the BEP
We all entered high school
So far it isn't uncool
But I'm so preoccupied
With two thou, two thou, 2009
