The Lyrics

I've only ever seen "Carrie Prejean" written down... I'm kind of hoping it's pronounced "pre - jean" rather than a Francophone sort of "pray-zhon".
Could've gone the whole damn way
And been made Miss USA
If you could keep your mouth shut about gay-ha-hay-hays
Yeah, you should not have said
That two men cannot be wed
Thinking like that b'longs to former days

Cheer up, Miss Prejean.
No, you're not that mean
Just a Miss California
Who likes non-marrying queens.

Thought it should have been clear
What that judge wanted to hear
Asking how small-minded you can be
No, I know it's no surprise
That they'd rather you tell lies
Than answer every question honestly

Cheer up, Miss Prejean
Though you're dumb, not mean
You're a Miss California
And a little bit green

Cheer up, Miss Prejean
Though it's some girls' dream
To be Miss California
And a bea-yoo-ty queen.

[interlude while the press go ape over the story]

Cheer up, Miss Prejean
At least you weren't obscene
Will you miss California
As you become a has-been
[Fade into obscurity]

Funny stuff. I didn't think that story made it across the pond. One would hope that she fades into obscurity, but she's trying to milk he 15 minutes of fame with a book about her experience. Her whole 22 years of life experience...

Another truth is stranger than fiction slice of life in the USA. Funny stuff. All 3 judges scored a 5.

:-) Thanks, all

McK - it didn't really make it over here: it was pointed out on a forum, and I'd kind of had "cheer up Miss Prejean" running round my head ever since.

A 5 for the result, but it is "Pree-ZHAHN." And she IS obscene: The rumor in today's New York Daily News is that her total of sex tapes made is not the previously-believed 1 but rather 8. More than the two Hilton sisters and the three Kardashian sisters combined. (As far as I know, only Paris and Kim have done any, and one each.) Then again, since you are British, you've probably heard this song enough ending with the words " ...and a ... (crap) football team!"

A fine job of Monkeeing around with an OS even a bad parody would've improved!

Anyone know if there's a recording of these parodies?
Phil Alexander - December 09, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks, all :-)

Michael - should have guessed. Do you think we could ask her to change, so that it fits the song? Her name, that is.

Hey piggywithlipstick- you should submit that to amiright (the "submit a parody" link at the top) - it's good, if kind of difficult to read without carriage returns

Adam - I doubt I'll be recording this one: not enough people over here know the story to perform it.

Preejeen is more fitting for a hooker Prayzhon makes it sound too classy. I'll go with Preejeen lol
