The Lyrics

Presenting my third annual Bjork Awards for the worst in Oscar fashion! (For the previous awards, see 2003's "Don't Wear That Gown" and 2004's "You Can't Wear That.") Also, rather surprising, since I like the guy and I've done almost 600 of these suckers... presenting my first Mellencamp parody!
Well there's a black dress on Johansson
on the big night for Hollywood.
She's kinda pale and her name's "Scarlett"
so her fashion choice, it really ain't good.

Helen Mirren, I've been starin'
in "Excalibur," her bod really rocked.
But this year, she'll be 60
that low neckline she's got on can't stop the clock!

Oh, but ain't that a fashion show? On ABC!
Ain't that a fashion show? It's something to see, baby!
Ain't that a fashion show? I'm watching for free!
Little pink dresses on my TV!
Oh, on my TV!

Well, there's Kate Winslet, in cobalt blue.
Jack Nicholson, lend me your sunglasses!
Now here's P. Diddy with his flashy smile
but velvet tux, that don't please too many lasses!

There's Zellweger, need a kegger
to forget her magenta faux pas.
With that haircut, I thought she was Lucy Liu.
On Renee, it's the worst I saw!

Oh, but ain't that a fashion show? On ABC!
Ain't that a fashion show? It's something to see, baby!
Ain't that a fashion show? I'm watching for free!
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Little pink dresses on my TV!
Oh, on my TV!

(instrumental break)

And a Million Dollar Baby
Hilary Swah-yah-yank.
Can't afford a full dress at that price
there's no back, making it easy to spank!
Ooh yeah!

And there's winners, and there's losers
but that ain't no big deal.
'Cause a simple gown is still the way to go
unless it's a neon teal.

Oh, but ain't that a fashion show? On ABC!
Ain't that a fashion show? It's something to see, baby!
Ain't that a fashion show? I'm watching for free!
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Little pink dresses on my TV!
Oh, on my TV!

Oh, but ain't that a fashion show? On ABC!
Ain't that a fashion show? It's something to see, baby!
Ain't that a fashion show? I'm watching for free!
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Little pink dresses on my TV!
Oh, on my TV!



Just to be fair, the following women looked great in part because of their gowns, not in spite of them: Cate Blanchett, Penelope Cruz, Annette Bening, Virginia Madsen, Halle Berry (no surprise there), and newcomer (to North America, anyway) Catalina Sandino Moreno... Vaca sanctifida, esta mujer esta fumando! (That's Spanish for, "Holy cow, that chick is smokin'!)
