The Lyrics

My annual (and last) year in review parody...this is also parody 150 for me!! Original Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K38xNqZvBJI
Woo hoo hooooo!
Woo hoo hooooo!

Tiger had a big fall
Mark Sanfords booty call
Balloon Boy flew away
"Party in the USA"
No Oprah anymore
After year 24
There's no resession plan
We said "I Love You, Man"

Sully landed in the Hudson
Became an instant star
Britney Spears big comeback
Everything now has a czar
Susan Boyle dreamed a dream, now a celebrity
Saw "Up" a dozen times
And nothing, has been...
all right since

Chris Brown, Rihanna
First year for Obama
There was New Moon and Speidi
And Conan takes the late night seat
We feared for the swine flu
Bea Arthur, we will miss you
And we didn't feel alright
In two thou, two thou, 2009

Woo Hoo Hooooo!
(2009)
Woo Hoo Hooooo!

We got cash for clunkers
We wasted our time
Octomom, Jon and Kate
The White House Crashers crime
Cheating Letterman
We all played Beatles Rockband
Hangover was grand
Is Lady Gaga really a man?

Rouge ex-governor Sarah Palin
We tweeted about the comeback of Whitney Houston
Everyone has a show on the TV
Who really cares about Kendra? Gosselins?
(or Kardashians?)

Chris Brown, Rihanna
First year for Obama
There was New Moon and Speidi
And Conan takes the late night seat
We feared for the swine flu
And Swayze, we will miss you
And we didn't feel alright
In two thou, two thou, 2009

Woo Hoo Hooooo!

Transformers, Megan Fox
We all said goodbye to the King of Pop
And why did Kanye interrupt Taylor?
Please make him stop, stop, STOP
think back to...

Chris Brown, Rihanna
First year for Obama
There was New Moon and Speidi
And Conan takes the late night seat
We feared for the swine flu
And Farrah, we will miss you
And we didn't feel alright
In 2009

Woo Hoo Hooooo!

Chris Brown, Rihanna
First year for Obama
There was New Moon and Speidi
And Conan takes the late night seat
We feared for the swine flu
Billy Mays, we will miss you
And we didn't feel alright
In two thou, two thou, 2009

I wish you didn't repeat the choruses but this was a good year in review the only thing that I think you left out was Christian Bale's rant.

In this case, I don't really mind that the chorus repeated because you did such a good job on it (subbing AND rhyming)! I also liked the "Make it stop/Megan Fox" sub. 556

This is frikin fantaSTIC! You hit every big event from 2009 that I can remember off the top of my head and made it hilarious!!! I'm almost speechless as to how great this parody really is! And that rarely ever happens to me!

(Holiday) this was pretty awesome, lots of details crammed in the song structure.. The chorus was definitely inspired, and i dont know what could have been done for variation.Technically, the pronunciation of "Two-Thousand-Nine" doesn't pace correctly, but I guess there was no way around it.

Thanks everyone! And Grim, the original song goes "nine-teen eight-y five" (5 syllables)...the one in this song is supposed to go "two thou-sand and nine" (5 syllables)...I probably should have spelled it out haha

Oh. . .you could have fit sooo much more in those choruses, still. . .this was a great parody about 2009, and you hit on a lot of the big stories, really liked the shout out to Bea Arthur, I'll miss thee three Golden Girls who passed away over the past few years. . .Just hope Betty White keeps on for awhile. . .anyway good job

Well done...like a "We Didn't Start The Fire" for 2009. Not an over the top LOL funny song, but very well written, and I enjoyed going back through the year.

Love your year end reviews! Will this really be the last one? :( Oh and you could have mentioned Green day 21st century Breakdown.
