The Lyrics

As sung by the now famous Norah Jones herself. She's got her little piano and the whole kit and kaboodle too. Start singin' Norah...
At first I was unknown,
Was unrecognized...
But then I shocked the whole damn Garden with a big surprise
I had spent so many nights
Dreaming of this kick-ass day
I made some songs...
Played the piano, sang along...
I thought that my,
Chances were dead...
Oh well that's too bad Eminem,
Take that damn napkin off your head
I never thought I could win one,
Leaving all the favorites in shock,
Most of those suckers usually vote,
For the guys playin' the rock.

But I walked down, that floor five times,
Oh what the hell why,
Didn't you give me eight or nine?
Got the best record, and then I nabbed best album too
Damn right I'm humble,
I'll throw a party, wouldn't you?
Yo yo, that's fly
I will steal five
Who the hell am I you ask me?
Who even knows if I'm alive?
I've got all these grammys now,
And I'm not even sure how,
But I'll steal five,
I will steal five...

Hey, Hey!

It took lots and lots of luck,
Taking the boss down,
Sorry Bruce but it looks,
Like I'm the best now, where's my crown?
And I spent oh so many nights,
Wond'ring what I would ever say,
If I beat Nelly...
And his old diseased band-aid.
Thank god that my,
Songs were top picks
Can you see my reflection now?
Ya Goddamn Dixie Chicks...
Yeah I just felt like dropping in,
New York is just a grand ole place,
Now I'm takin' all the big ones,
NO ONE EVEN KNEW MY FACE

But I walked down, that floor five times,
Oh what the hell why,
Didn't you give me eight or nine?
Got the best record, and then I nabbed best album too
Damn right I'm humble,
I'll throw a party, wouldn't you?
Yo yo, that's fly
I will steal five
Who the hell am I you ask me?
Who even knows if I'm alive?
I've got all these grammys now,
And I'm not even sure how,
But I'll steal five,
I will steal five.

Yo yo, that's fly

And I'm not even sure how,
But I'll steal five,
I will steal five........

Don't hate on Norah Jones.

I hate the original version of this song. That's why I like parodies of it so much. The British puppet show "Spitting Image" once did the Queen singing it. Not Queen as in Freddie Mercury's band, THE Queen in puppet form. This was better than even that one.

Its not a bad parosy..pacings a bit off, but not bad..and its kinda funny...but I must say, Norah Jones is amazing and deserved to get all of the grammys she did, except for best album..that should have went to Bruce...that album was much better than Norahs as a whole....But the one of the biggest travesties was that John Mayor's "Room for squares" wasnt nominated for best album...it wouldnt win, but it was definitly a better album than Nellyville!

I wasn't trying to "hate" on Norah Jones alix...I was just trying to put her in a comical song, and there isn't much disrespect shown to her here anyway.

Anyone remember the lytics that spitting image used in their version?

One of the chorus's went, "One will survive, one will survive, I'll be just like my mother and I'll live to 95, Oh Charles'll have to wait, I aint going to abdicate, one will survive, one will survive!" But there was a whole song to it, starting "Once I was adored, I was glorified..." dunno the rest!
