Lyrics:

I think I did it again
I just saved the world
You’re welcome, my friend

Oh baby, I’ve
groped so many kids
by patting them down
I just received this

A four-ounce tube of toothpaste?
No ain’t nothing getting past me
Well maybe, maybe

Oops, I did it again
I missed all their bombs
they got on the plane
oh baby, baby
Oops you think I’m the one
keeping track of the guns
I’m not that competent

Of the 70 weapons they tried to sneak past, you missed 67
leaving you incompetent at the single task we gave you
Is there a reason we shouldn’t fire you?
Well, I identify as competent.
Why didn’t you say so…

Oops, I did it again (Oops I)
I missed all their bombs (did it again, missed their bombs)
they got on the plane (I got lost)
oh baby, baby (I’m not that bright, baby)
Oops you think I’m the one (Oops you)
keeping track of the guns (gave us the GDP of Guam)
I’m not that competent “

LYRICS:
Make them pay four months of earnings (oh, that’s a good one)
Have them look for lost receipts (ooh, I like it!)
They’ll have about as much fun
as their last colonoscopy
People everywhere will get ripped off…
the paper version of the Apple Watch

And we’ll dance all night, it’s the best code ever
Some folks pay a lot, others they pay never
And you’ll get tax breaks if you’re really clever
It’ll take so long, it’s the best code ever
They’ll be like “oh, oh no”
We’ll be like “yeah, yeah, yeah.”
We’ll be like “awww.”

You may have heard that all your info
on our systems can be hacked with ease
But rest assured if they don’t get them
they’ll be in the care of folks like these
Yes historians will all agree
among the greatest works in history

And we’ll dance all night, it’s the best code ever
Some folks pay a lot, others they pay never
and if you don’t comply you’ll go to jail, however
Why would you not file? It’s the best code ever
They’ll be like “Oh, oh no”
We’ll be like “yeah, yeah, yeah” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Arkansas Badonkadonk

 

 

    Earlier this month we highlighted a video that was produced by the Stand With Hillary Super PAC to support the “inevitable” campaign , it is her turn after all , of Ms Hillary Clinton for president . There was much to do on both sides of the aisle about the video , most of which commented on the fact that said video was unintended parody . This current video , by the esteemed Remy is real , intentional parody . Brought to you , as always , by ReasonTV we hope you enjoy it as much as we did .

   Below are the lyrics so you can follow along …

” LYRICS:
Just like the last time around
Republicans are gonna frown
Mitt Romney and Ben Carson now?
Like Twitter stock you’re going down

You’d that you were riding in
Billy Joel’s car I swear
because you’re gonna see
shattered glass everywhere

I’m talking Arkansas Badonkadonk..
Perfect voting record make you wanna vote along
Gonna bring along ol’ Bill Clinton
and ooh-wee, shut my mouth, slap your grandma

You think she’s gonna lose
in the early primaries?
You’d sooner see Al Sharpton
promptly filing quarterlies

Somehow I’m a crusader
Can label you a hater
While I say “nominate
anybody with a baby-maker” “

Don’t Tell ‘Em (Obamacare Version)

LYRICS:
Folks would be aghast if
this law would be passed but
thankfully they are so dumb

Sure our team can’t build a
website in three years but
THEY’RE the ones who are so dumb

So, what’s the strategy?

Don’t tell em, don’t tell ’em
You ain’t even
Don’t tell em, don’t tell ’em
You ain’t even, you ain’t even gotta tell ’em

It’ll bring prices down with it
Your healthcare plan will stick around with it
Boy, you know I’m from Chicago
Maybe they get a clown with it…

Don’t let me catch you snoring
Making government bigger is never boring
Our CBO strategy’s named “Bill Cosby”
we’re looking for an improper scoring

When folks ask what’s in you lie through the tooth
Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?
Our ideas are so good we can’t tell the truth
That’s right right right right right

But won’t people read it in three years or so?
My, my, my, my, my, my
Who’d look inside something that many years old? “

LYRICS:

Well they’ll be there in an instant
with the stars and stripes unfurled
glady going to the most dangerous
places in the world

But today it seems our fighting folks
are in danger once again
You may have seen the headlines in the news
or watching CNN

When we heard the wait times on our list
were so long that patients died
We said “This is government-run healthcare”
“So we’re gonna do what’s right”

We’re gonna grab a piece of paper
and we’ll make a second list
We’ll just say that wait times aren’t that long
and that no deadlines were missed
and when people die we’ll cross them off
and pretend they don’t exist
cuz there ain’t no doubt we can’t be fired
God bless the government

It ain’t just about the soldiers
you see we also sacrifice
There are days you’ll find us working
until the crack of 4:45

But for all the soldiers out there
who sick and need some help
What can they do to get the government
to care about their health?

They could grab a piece of paper
and write down something like this
and abandon your whole unit
then they’ll care when you get sick
and if people die when they look for you
we’ll pretend they don’t exist
cuz there ain’t no doubt we can’t be fired
God bless the government.”

Lyrics:
A Senator lady
Got the news one day
The country’s being spied on
by the NSA

So she went out defending
on each TV set
but when she found out she’d been snooped on
she got all upset

And isn’t it ironic?
I mean, don’t you think?

It’s like you’re at Chris Brown’s
and there’s punch in the fridge
or if The Bachelor
passed a geography quiz

Learning Ted Kennedy
happened to be good at bridge.
And who would have thought?
It figures.

Senator, this may surprise you
and the irony bites
but Congresspeople ain’t the only ones
with 4th Amendment rights

It’s like a minimalist
who does their laundry
with All
or if Woody Allen liked to watch
Kids in the Hall

it’s like FDR
got locked in a Honda Accord
a cheap healthcare plan
that you just can’t afford

If Oscar Pistorius
really hated The Doors
and who would have thought?
It figures.

I heard the government
is sneaking up on you.
Life has a funny, funny way
of calling you out
calling you out.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Giant Tip Of The Hat Goes To Soopermexican For Bringing This New Remy Video To Our Attention

 

 

   The folks at ReasonTV and Remy have done it again . In this episode cultural references abound all to the original words and music by Remy . In this video Jay (Remy) Carney raps the White House response to an impertinent question from Major Garrett of the press corps. We’ve included the lyrics below so that you can follow along . Enjoy .

Lyrics:

” How dare you, sir?
Yeah, you, yeah I said it
No respect for a bait and switch?
Give us credit

Straight spitting fibs
from the ghetto to Tokyo
You’d think we’re Geppetto
the way we’re getting Pinnochios

We’ve heard the details
we’ve heard complaints aplenty
we’ve read your emails
(not that you’ve sent us any…)

We know Obamacare is 
falling apart by any tally
It’s crumbling so bad 
you’d think it’s made by Nature Valley

But we got a new ad campaign
across the world
we got one for dudes
we got one for girls

So if you press corps bores
want to chance inquire
I hope you brought smores
because these pants on fire

Sir, millions of people are trying to accept
the loss of their plans you told them could be kept
and one thing that’s baffling folks around the planet
is how have these plans been canceled but Two Broke Girls hasn’t?

I’ve tried and I’ve tried, but the effort is in vain
Never has a website inflicted such pain
for our wasted time is a bailout in sight?
For users of healthcare.gov? No, people who drafted Ray Rice

You said people could keep their plan but look where that led
We didn’t say “plan.” We said “fathead.”
No, you said it’d be like Kayak or Amazon, like a laser, pronto!
No, kayaking on the Amazon with the mayor of Toronto

But you–can’t comment, G. But you s–can’t comment, cuz
Why can’t you comment? I don’t have Google Plus
But this is your law and now people need help
I mean you wrote the thing–did you just knockout game yourself?

Selling hope’s like selling soap, son, I’ll tell you why
You can’t make either one without a little bit of lye “

” The official deadline for the government-touted Healthy Young America Video contest, which is designed to promote the benefits of The Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare), was September 23.

But we figure that, what with all the other delays associated with Obamacare, the kind judges at Young Invincibles will be willing to cut us a few days’ slack.

So here’s Reason TV and Remy’s “Obamacare Video Contest Song.”

Written and performed by Remy. Produced by Meredith Bragg.

Lyrics:

What’s hated by unions
has businesses wary
and dropping coverage 
like the ‘Skins secondary?

Causing thousands of layoffs
taking it’s toll?
What’s so good for people
that they’re forced to enroll?

What’s a law that’s so good
folks who passed and defended it
see it and got waivers
to be exempted? It’s

like Olestra, at first 
it sounded hip
but we quickly found ourselves
dealing with a whole lot of sh…

Obamacare, Obamacare
Unions and businesses both in despair

So to recap, young people,
your hours get cut
and your income goes down
and your premium’s up

and the taxes you pay
with the cash you have left
go to pay for a stupid 
video contest, touting

Obamacare, Obamacare
Unions and businesses both in despair

It’s hated by doctors and unions are mad.
Not since Billy Ray Cyrus 
has someone made something this bad. “

” As Americans get ready to travel for the holidays, here is a look back at last year’s Christmas-themed Remy-ReasonTV collaboration.

Here is the original text from the Dec 19, 2011 video:

In seasons past, Grandma only had to worry about getting run over by a reindeer. With “Grandma Got Run Over by TSA,” web sensation Remy gets us in the holiday mood with a song about Christmas, Homeland Security, and the joys of civil rights abuses. “
