January 1st - January 7th, 2010.

Em, C, G, D

Let it snow, let it snow
God, it’s cold.
33 inches in just mere hours in Burlington, VT

Rush Limbaugh died
according to Wikipedia
but that was soon retracted
and a bit exaggerated

the Chinese tried to destroy a tower
but left it leaning
a Pisa admirer

Taylor and Taylor are over for now
say it ain’t so
Lord, say it ain’t so

we’re going to put body scanners in every airport
because showing a muslim’s naked body
is going to PREVENT terrorism?

Now the Yemenese are our enemies.
Well not all you see
but a few crazies

and two identical twins were born a decade apart
what a crazy start
to this year in song


  1. I love the song, I love the concept. And where can I read more about the twins born a decade apart??? I haven't heard that story.

  2. one twin was born just before midnight on dec 31. one just after on Jan 1. so different decades...

    I'm going to include links to the actual stories from the lyrics from now on. I'm realizing that by putting them into lyric form, some of the meaning is lost.

  3. I love it. You should send a demo to the Daily Show. They could run it at the end of the week.

  4. very sweet, Liz. I think that's the only business model I see this thing leading to as well. haha.
