The Lyrics

2009 will no doubt go down as one of the craziest years on record. From the Recession, to a new President, to Healthcare Reform, Bailouts, H1N1, a Continuing War, Celebrity Deaths & Indiscretions, yet another attempt to bring down an airplane and seemingly higher levels of bizarre behavior around the world, the list goes on and on. This parody touches on a few of the more sensational events of 2009:

Oh Oh's, time to get cashed in
That Oh Nine, really suckin' man
Recession, more to less ain't fine
This year's goin' gone...

Bailouts on me and enough we have seen out of D.C.
Chicag'O'; new pork purveyor to lead us, a re-peat
You flip the committee, it's all just a typical sway scheme
White to black and still not good with the green

Suckin', got a war machine
Troops gone, he's sending more Marines
Tongue forked, word don't mean a thing
But not the first we've seen...
~
Saw a big cat who got beat on the street by his true love
Most of his time he's hittin' on lighter skinned hoes
One of these days his hoes are gonna stop showin'
Maybe there's more, for now it's fourteen that he boned

Suckin', like the Tiger-man
Now he sees he's got to play his hand
Sometimes the *stars* ain't worth the time
If they wear phony crowns...
~
Sometimes the blight is swine, the disease
Panic, fright every time we sneeze
Lately things are blurred to me
What an odd, strained year it's been...
~
We lost some more of the people of screen fame
King of Pop Michael, you know that someone's to blame
Livin' on meds, vitamins for his deep pain
All those things he took a dangerous game
~
Suckin', gettin' buffaloed
Feds thinkin' they got to run the show
Healthcare, just keep blowin' smoke
They just keep pilin' on...
~
Suckin', I'm hearin' about the latest weirdos
Watchin' clips of all the sick on the news at ten
It's tough to get some sleep when more unravel
'Cause you don't get a warning when stress erupts from within

Suckin', need a bourbon please
Set up and I'll drink it in
Knock down and then I'll switch to gin
The stress won't get to me...
~
You're sick of hangin' around, you'd like to travel
You tried to travel and ran into Al-Qaeda clown
I guess when you see smoke you think you're dyin'
Get clown on the floor and fight while his crotch burns to brown

Sometimes the right thing's lost to P.C.
Pay no mind to sworn enemies
Skatin' on thin ice are we
What a wrong, strange year it's been...
~
Suckin', it's a rodeo
Whoa, whoa, maybe gotta take it slow
Hold on, don't want to break no bones
Just get back on that hoss...

.
Have a happy and safe New Year everyone, hope that 2010 is your best year yet! (at least better than 2009, anyway)

Another recap of 2009 since Pacholek's "Decade Expired" parody! I was expecting to enjoy my last year as a 20-something, but I had loads of problems. :( My mom, this economy, unemployment, etc. It was a better year for my bro, though. Anyways, hope this year would be better. Like Mark says, you're parody's not suckin'. 555.

OMR: Thank you, Sir Ribber, though I have nothing to submit at the moment for tomorrow. 2010: the Year of Writer's Block! ;-)

Mark: I'll 2nd that emotion, thanks!

Christie: Thanks, we're all hoping for better years.

AFW: I hear ya man, better things in 2010 for you too.

Samurai: Hang in there man, gotta get better soon.

Great job parodying a great OS, and I agree that 2009 sucked overall.

But for AmIRight, 2008 was bad with the double-header of seemingly hundreds of unpleasant comments, culminating in the bans of Linda Terhune and Dr Music, and 2007 was bad for me because my older sister killed herself, a bunch of other nasty stuff I'd rather not discuss, and I became a depressed, weepy, irritable shell of my former self and how I am now. 5s.
