The Lyrics

Need to have my name in magazines
Would be on Wife Swap but I couldn’t wait
I launched a balloon with a press release
And now I’m on TV

While it floats we’re all glancing, “What’s that up in the sky?”
UFO-looking: “Are there Martians inside?”
So when the newscaster asks to the public
What is in this thing?
“It’s my son! Man!”

On CNN the news discloses
The wacky story that I have composed with
My son Falcon thinking it’s an airplane
So plaster it on all those newspapers
Get a search party to aid in my caper
(Being a good actor on the set will add to your fame)
Where’s that crazy Balloon Boy?
Where’s that silly Balloon Boy?
That lost in Colorado boy
My news story’s up front

Some critics think my fabrication is fake
It’s all a hoax, maybe there’s no kid in the first place
The cops check out my garage and I scream “Oh no!”
Cause they find him passed out inside a box
“How’d he get there? You found him! That rocks!”
I say “I’m shocked” on Larry King and Talk Radio

I just wanted to become famous
So I did something rather heinous
And had a news chopper follow it while I explained
My son didn’t tie down the tethers!
Now Falcon’s soaring without any feathers
Saturday Night Live will soon have a sketch cause I have no shame
About this crazy balloon boy!
With my weather balloon ploy
Damn near everyone’s annoyed
Yup! But I’m in the news!

I’ve struck fear in all Colorado
I’m making more cash than I could with the lotto
I understand that I am the worst dad in the U.S of A
With my crazy Balloon Boy!
Gave birth to that zany Balloon Boy!
“I said hide in the hedges, Boy!”
They found you in a box

Yeah… Found in a box
Found in a box

I think it was all a publicity stunt. Someone needs to punch that Falcon kid... get the joke? FALCON PUNCH! 555 for this hilarious satire.

(Dec 3) Who in the hell names their kid Falcon? A big F-Zero fan? A bird enthusiast? Someone mental enough to pull the balloon stunt? We don't know (or care). 555 to you, sir!

You'd said you'd do this and I forgot to check it out. I don't know the Original Song, but the words look good!
