Also recorded by the Fifth Dimension. OS (Nyro): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFTBERaBWL8 OS (5D): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uh858MRckmE
Let’s go
Take in a quatrain,
Drink some Chocolate Rain.
Get sappy!
Film on the F train.
Hang Saddam Hussein.
Get sappy—sappy!

Oh, sweet YouTube!
A high school stage play. Some vintage boob tube.
Oh, sweet YouTube:
Vid clips for free!
Four black kids in Dover
Dancing a jig to the Irish Rovers!
Come on, baby, do a backflip.
You’re my first homemade rocket ship.
And ain’t that sweet ol’ YouTube
Fun to see!

Let’s go
Watching a teen here
Cry for Britney Spears!
Good gravy!
Fancy baton twirl.
Sing, Obama Girl!
Good gravy—gravy!

Oh, sweet YouTube!
A Boston left wonk. A Dallas right rube.
Oh, sweet YouTube:
Publicity!
Please don’t show my mother:
I made a sex tape with Lego lovers!
Come on, baby, do a jazz scat.
You’re a blues-picking piano cat.
And ain’t that sweet ol’ YouTube
Fun to see!

Don’t ask me ‘cause
I ain’t gonna tell you what I’ve been taping!
Ain’t gonna tell you what I’ve been taping!
Ain’t gonna tell you what I’ve been taping—
“Harry Potter”—naked! (Equus play!)

Oh, sweet YouTube! (Here come play…)
A little film clip. (…some oldies…)
A three-inch tube-cube! (…whee!)
Oh, sweet YouTube: (Here come play…)
Old flicks for free! (…old mem’ries!)
Don’t let corp’rate near it!
They will destroy our creative spirit!
Don’t let corp’rate near it!
They’ll just destroy our communal spirit!
Come on, baby, twang your guitar;
You’re our nine millionth cyberstar!
And ain’t that sweet ol’ YouTube
Fun to see, all for free!
Now, ain’t our sweet ol’ YouTube
Meant to be!
