Tweet It!

The theme song for the Twitter-obsessed, as sung to Michael Jackson’s “Beat It.”

400 pound webcam girlYou heard Obama call Kanye a ‘jackass’
On or off the record — he don’t get no pass
You’ve got nothing to say and you haven’t much class
So tweet it, just tweet it

You say you’ve got some smokin’ pictures to share
Just click through to your Web cam pages, if we dare
But you weigh 400 pounds and you’re covered in hair
So tweet it, even if you’re just fat

Just tweet it, tweet it, tweet it, tweet it
No matter how lame or conceited
Spew out your updates all in a bunch
Tell us in detail what you had for lunch
Just tweet it (tweet it, tweet it)
Tweet it (tweet it, tweet it)

[Insert video of gay guys pretending to be bad-ass gangsters here.]

You want us thinking no one’s smarter than you
But you haven’t read a book since 1992
Just bury us with links to everything that you do
And tweet it, just tweet it
david prager tweet

Some ‘random dude’ just stumbled into your pad
Now there’s a drunken hobo sleeping on your bed
Don’t dial 9-1-1, grab your keypad instead
And tweet it, but you want to be bad

Just tweet it, tweet it, tweet it, tweet it
And maybe your tweeps will repeat it
Share your thoughts on what’s cool and what stinks
Smother us all in short bit.ly links
Just tweet it (tweet it, tweet it)
Tweet it (tweet it, tweet it)

[This is where Michael does that weird shuffling thing with his hands.]
ashton-kutcher really needs a shave

You never made a film we wanted to see
You cannot even hack reality TV
Don’t worry ’bout it now cuz you’re a Twit-celebrity
Just tweet it, and retweet it

It used to be you had to earn your own fame
Have talent, looks, some smarts, or be good at some game
Now all you need is Twitter and no sense of shame
So tweet it, cause you want be loved

Just tweet it, tweet it, tweet it, tweet it
Even if nobody reads it
You can be famous, it’s easy to do
When thousands of strangers are following you
Just tweet it (tweet it, tweet it)
Tweet it (tweet it, tweet it)

[ Repeat endlessly until you develop a sense of rhythm.]

Now here’s the original “Beat It” video from the King of Pop. (YouTube has disabled embedding, damn them.)  And just for fun, Weird Al Yankovic’s “Eat It.”
