The Lyrics

We don’ war no haute couture in Wasilla
We jes’ pull on jeans and vests o’ fleece.
But Ah cain’t keep dressin’ like no drilla …
jes’ ain’t done by VP wannabes.

Hunnert-fifty Gs fer togs at Nieman-
Marcus, mebbee fifty more at Saks
gonna he’p give Demmacrats a reamin’,
gonna save ye’s from th’ devil in Sears slacks.

An’ … Ah’m proud t’ be a killa from Wasilla
out winnin’ votes decked out in these hot duds.
Ah don’t know mah own ass from Manila,
but kin wrap it so’s it lures them horny studs.

(An’) Yeah, Ah hafta trade m’ mukluks in fer Prada,
try t’ make ol’ Todd look decent, too.
Ain’t worn nothin’ new thet Ah ain’ gotta
as Lizzie Hasselbeck’ll tell ye’s on “The View.”

An’ … Ah’m proud t’ be a killa from Wasilla
out winnin’ votes decked out in these hot duds.
Ah don’t know mah own ass from Manila,
but kin wrap it so’s it lures them horny studs.

(If) Ah don’t know mah ass from Manila,
if Ah’m dressed up hot enuff, then thet’s okay.

Sure, Sarah speaking sounded morelike "Marge Gundersen" than Merle Haggard, but it's _his_ OS, after all. :-) © Stan Hall 11/06/2008

Dang bust it! I forgot to mention in the pre-/post-lyrics area that this was inspired by a McCain/Palin campaign aide's comment that characterized the Palins, ensemble, to "... Wasilla hillbillies looting Nieman-Marcus from coast to coast." :-)

Agreed, a real sing-along. We got so much mileage out Sarah...what will we parodists have to sing about now?

Thanks, all.
MasonR -- as revelations of Sarah's "foibles" continue to emerge and evidence of her ambition's stifling does not--she hasn't, after all, borrowed Nixon's exit line--we may yet "have Sarah to kick around" for some time to come. :-)

They're proud to be hillbillies from Wasilla. This parody is a perfect fit.

Wow, keeping that 'sound' if you will throughout the song had to be difficult. MasonR, with the likes of Britney, Lindsay, Justin, Michael, R Kelly, Madonna, Paula etc. . .there will always be something to sing about--not to mention today's music itself often leads itself to parody (see Luke's Womanizer parody)
