The Lyrics

An ode (?) to everyone's favorite (?) American subculture. Original Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVoFq7zc5po
You wear your scarves out when it is warm
Flannel and skinny jeans
Listen to music not on the charts
You think it’s too mainstream

You wear high top Converse, fifth year of college
Liberal Arts degree
Have thick rimmed glasses, different than the masses
With ironic tee’s

Won’t use things that are new
Only retro for you
Yet you carry a Mac and wool-knit cap
Oh, you hipster you

I ask you about the way you are
“You wouldn’t understand”
Get a six-pack of cold PBR
With your ironic mustache

Looks like you’re sleeping in your car
Dress like that every day
Only organic, work at Starbucks, give me my latte!

Covered in bad tattoos
Real sports are not for you
And then you go right on back, play hackeysack
Oh, you hipster you

Lumberjack beard for you
A just-out-of-bed hairdo
And you got a new hat for your new pet rat
Oh, you hipster you

If you’re going to Mars, take hipsters back
And Earth will thank you!

I fit about half of that description, especially the high-top Converse. Fun parody!

This is the first parody I heard about Hipsters but too bad this isn't the first Fountains of Wayne song and thus it's way too mainstream.

Whatever happened to FoW? This OS was so laidback, the parody lyrics just kinda sat there for me. Amusing enough for 555, but not a LOL, knowhatimean?

(ABC) I really liked this, and any time I get to listen to Fountains of Wayne, is time well spent.

Apparently when I was looking around Downtown Disney the other day they sell Mickey Mouse t-shirts with him dressed up as a Hipster. Talk about selling out. I mean the whole theme park literally sells out some days.

(ABC) Excellent skewering of a subculture I've only actually seen mocked on the internet. I was voting 555 before it went all mainstream ;)
