The Lyrics

Presenting the 16th Annual Bjork Awards for the worst in Oscar fashion. In 2000, Icelandic singer-actress Bjork Gudmundsdottir, nominated for "Dancer in the Dark," showed up at the Oscars wearing the infamous "Swan Dress." And Joan Rivers went on "The View" the next day to say, "Ugh! That idiot Bjork! That dress was so bad, even heterosexuals were making fun of it!" This was right after she said, "You don't understand: For gay people, the Oscars ARE the Super Bowl!" As a straight person who nonetheless finds the topic fascinating, I have to admit, the bad ones were fewer this year, but that does make those few that are bad stand out.
Here’s my story, it’s sad but true!
It’s about some girls I thought I knew!
On Oscar Night, they’re running around
in the most awful gowns in town!

Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey!
La-La Land Lost!
Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Awwww...

(Hey)
Aw, hey, there’s Margot Robbie and her shoulder-straps
(Hey)
sagging so her dress, it looks like crap!
(Hey)
Listen, people, what I’m telling you:
(Hey)
Keep away, here’s a dumber gown, ew!

(Hey)
Yeah, I saw St. Vincent, and oh my God
(Hey)
wore more on shoulder than the rest of her bod.
(Hey)
So if you don’t want double-take like I do:
(Hey)
Keep away, here’s a dumber gown, ew!

Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Hey! Whoa-way!
Oh, Hey! Awwww...

Frances McDormand’s bad gown!
Yeah, her designer is such a clown!
She won, but lemme put you wise:
She needs… better design guys!

(Hey)
What was Lindsay Vonn thinkin’ comin’ off the slopes?
(Hey)
That black dress was designed by a dope!
(Hey)
Ask any fool that she ever knew,
they’ll tell ya:
(Hey)
Keep away, here’s a dumber gown, ew!

Yeah!
Keep away from this girl:
Emma Stone, what’d you do?
You’re dressed for kung fu!

Hey! Awwww...

Salma Hayek usually astounds!
Yeah, but blew it with her purple gown!
Now, people, lemme put you wise:
Haley Bennett must’ve kept closed her eyes!

See that Monika Bacardi, be a guy who knows:
Desire for Bacardi Rum now grows!
Ask any fool that she ever knew,
they’ll tell ya:
(Hey)
Keep away, here’s a dumber gown, ew!

Yeah!
Stay away from those girls!
Don’t you know what they do, now?
They don’t have a clue!

Whoa…

(fadeout)

Love the shoutout to St. Vincent, who performed with Sufjan Stevens later that night (both artists I highly admire). I thought she had lost her pants. Well done, MP!

Fashion disaster on display.

Didn't watch the show but there is plenty on the net about women protesting against male chauvinism by strutting around half naked and demanding that no man look at her or say anything.
