Our Lyric Sheet (not exact...but it'll give you an idea)

RHETT&Link

C
Hank do you remember when all of georgia fled
F
that flood that left thousands homeless and seven dead
G
But while those people drowned and their houses went adrift
G C
The news was about kanye west....and taylor swift

HANK
Indeed rhett&link, I see the news media failin
every time anyone mentions...sarah palin
They dispatch a dozen camera crews every time she poos
While I can't escape the feeling she's just not news

RHETT&Link
And swine flu, while a killer, got more love than it needed
Killing 4,000 people while the normal flu, unheeded
Kills 60,000 people year in and year out
People like to have something to freak out about

HANK
But then there was that michael phelps marijuana scandal
Just one picture and the media flew off their handle
I mean, he did the exact same thing as our last three presidents
something about our priorities here does not make sense

ALL
F C
So Many important things happened this year friend
G C
Iran's Election and Mass Recession and Obama sworn in
F C
But to us the things on cable news seem so freaking dumb
G C
R&L: And we can only hope that we're not the only ones
Hank: yes, we can only hope that we're not the only ones.

HANK
I'm not sure if crappy news gets any better than
The scandals of Tiger Woods and David Letterman
I mean, it turns out rich guys cheat on their wives
That wasn't news in the year twenty five

LINK&Rhett
And one of the biggest stories of the whole entire year
Is that Susan Boyle could sing and bring an audience to tears
With all the pretty people auto-tuned, I think we forgot
You don't have to be hot to The talent Brittain's got

HANK
And I still laugh any time I see some poor braggart
Proudly holding up a sign proclaiming he's a tea bagger
Besides any confusion about the american revolution
I think no matter what they mean the news was an illusion

ALL
So Many important things happened this year friend
Iran's Election and Mass Recession and Obama sworn in
But to us the things on cable news seem so freaking dumb
Hank: And we can only hope that we're not the only ones
R&L: yes, we can only hope that we're not the only ones.

HANK - But I think we three can all agree, the biggest load of po
R&L - Was that balloon boy falcon who was not in the balloon
HANK - Just another year where we kept the world alive
R&L - We didnt pay attention but we somehow didn't die
ALL
So Many important things happened this year friend
Iran's Election and Mass Recession and Obama sworn in
But to us the things on cable news seem so freaking dumb
All - And we can only hope that we're not the only ones
All - yes, we can only hope that we're not the only ones.
All - But since they're still reporting it....we just might be the only ones.

Good morning John, it is the last video of 2009! And it just so happens that my last video of 2009 falls on a song Wednesday. I wrote the lyrics to this song and then sent it to the song-writing musical duo Rhett and Link and they worked the music and we recorded the song together which was really freaking cool. So, I'm going to go ahead and play the song for you and then I'm going to talk a little bit more after the thingy.

Rhett&Link: Hank, do you remember when all of Georgia fled? That flood that left thousands homeless and seven dead? But while those people drowned and their houses went adrift, the news was about Kanye West, and Taylor Swift.

Hank: But Rhett & Link, where see the news media faillin', is anytime anyone mentions Sarah Palin. They dispatch a dozen camera crews every time she poos, while I can't escape the feeling she's just not news.

R&L:And the swine flu, while a killer, got more love than it needed, killing 4,000 people while the normal flu, unheeded, kills 60,000 people year in, and year out. People like to have something to freak out about.

Hank: And what about the Michael Phelps marijuana scandal, just one picture and the media flew off the handle. He did the same thing as our last three presidents, I don't think our priorities make much sense.

All: So many important things happened this year friend, Iran's election, and mass recession, and Obama sworn in. But to us the things on cable news seem so freaking dumb.

R&L: And we can only hope that we're not the only ones.

Hank: Yes, we can only hope that we're not the only ones.

Hank: And I don't think that crappy news gets any better than the scandals of Tiger Woods and David Letterman. It turns out rich guys cheat on their wives, that wasn't news in the year twenty five.

R&L: And one of the biggest stories of the whole entire year, is that Susan Boyle could sing and bring an audience to tears. With all the pretty people auto-tuned, we forgot, you don't have to be hot to be the talent Britain's got.

Hank: And I still laugh any time I see some poor braggart proudly holding up a sign proclaiming he's a tea bagger. Besides any confusion about the Revolution, I think no matter what they mean the news was an illusion.

All: So many important things happened this year, friend.
Iran's election, and mass recession, and Obama sworn in, but to us the things on cable news seem so freaking dumb,

R&L: And we can only hope that we're not the only ones.

Hank: Yes, we can only hope that we're not the only ones. But I think we three can all agree, the biggest load of poo

R&L: Was that balloon boy falcon who was not in the balloon.

Hank: Just another year where we kept the world alive.

R&L: We didn't pay attention but somehow we didn't die

All: So many important things happened this year, friend. Iran's election, and mass recession, and Obama sworn in. But to us the things on cable news seem so freaking dumb! And we can only hope that we're not the only ones. Yes, we can only hope that we're not the only ones.
R&L: But since they're still reporting it....
All: We just might be the only ones.

Link (talking): Happy new year, Hank!
Rhett: And the other one... Your brother, I think his name is Don.
Link (whispering): John.
Rhett: John.

Hank: So that was Rhett and Link and this is me and I am telling you people, if you have not, go check out their work, youtube.com/rhettandlink. There's a link in the sidebar. And if you want to thank them for kicking ass and making my final song Wednesday video freaking awesome, go ahead and subscribe, and they also have an album coming out on the January 5th, so you might want to check that out too.

John and Nerdfighteria, thank you for making 2009 a really amazing year for us all. I could never have expected it to be this great, but maybe we can make 2010 even better. DFTBA.
