The Lyrics

"You don't understand," Joan Rivers likes to say, "for gay people, the Oscars ARE the Super Bowl!" Really? I thought they were a sitcom! Especially Joan's part! Oh yeah, the "bag of bones" is Calista Flockhart.
We stand here on the carpet in Hollywood.
Cher's walking down and her dress don't look too good.
Don't wear that gown! No, no, no, no, no! Whoo-hoo!
I tell you once more, don't wear those rags to the floor!
Don't wear that gown!

Maternity gown for Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Harrison Ford's escorting some bag of bones.
Don't wear that gown! No, no, no, no, no! Whoo-hoo!
I tell you once more, don't wear those rags to the floor!
Don't wear that gown!

Don't wear that gown! Ewsh!
Don't wear that gown! Ewsh!
Don't wear that gown! Ewsh!
Don't wear that gown!

Jennifer Lopez covered in that seafoam!
And Julianne Moore should have just stayed at home!
Don't wear that gown! No, no, no, no, no! Whoo-hoo!
I tell you once more, don't wear those rags to the floor!
Don't wear that gown!

I kinda liked that gown worn by Diane Lane.
But Geena Davis? She must have gone insane!
Don't wear that gown! No, no, no, no, no! Whoo-hoo!
I tell you once more, don't wear those rags to the floor!
Don't wear that gown!

Don't wear that gown! Ewsh!
Don't wear that gown! Ewsh!
Don't wear that gown! Ewsh!
Don't wear that gown!

Jennifer Garner comes up wearing the teal.
Some spy she is! So much stuff she has revealed!
Don't wear that gown! No-no, no-no, no-no, no-no, no! Whoo-hoo!
I tell you once more, don't wear those rags to the floor!
Don't wear that gown!

I hate that pink dress worn by Hilary Swank!
Get me some more of that Scotch whiskey I drank!
Don't wear that gown! No, no, no, no, no! Whoo-hoo!
I tell you once more, don't wear those rags to the floor!
Don't wear that gown! Gown! Gown! Gown!

I tell you once more, don't wear those rags to the floor!
Don't wear that gown!

Interesting idea... I'm surprised you didn't do more with the "You're looking good, just like a snake in the grass" line, though...

Good job - but Calista is a babe.

This parody was NOT the slightest bit off-paced. Why did have to somebody stick in a triple-one vote amongst all the triple-fives?

This has got to stop.
