In which Hank is embarassed to sing a song about Balloon Boy Falcon Heene.

Lyrics
hello my name is falcon
and my dad believes that hillary clinton's an alien
but just because he thinks there's aliens in our midst
doesn't mean he's not a semi-good weatherologists
so when he told me he was building a balloon
I told him "day, you know I'm proud of you."

You thought I was in a balloon
but I was in a box
People always told me to listen when daddy talks
Yeah he named me falcon
yeah he needs a shrink
but no one else's dad can
make everyone think
they're in a baloon
And now I'm famous too

I was napping in the box when he cut the baloon loose
then immediately called the colorado local news
Then everyone who watched tv feared that I might die
But my attic was as close as I got to the sky
And the next day I was on the national news
They asked me why I hid and so I puked

And now everyone wants to take my dad away from me
because he contributed to my delinquency
But dady tell me please all I really want to know
Do you think we'll get another tv show
cause kids at school keep telling me this tale
about how wife swap has a different meaning in jail

This is not gonna go particularly well, I have a feeling. But let us begin here, on C, and quickly move to D.

Hello my name is Falcon
and my dad believes that Hillary Clinton's an alien
but just because he thinks there's aliens in our midst
doesn't mean he's not a semi-good weatherologists
so when he told me he was building a balloon
I told him "dad, you know I'm proud of you."

You thought I was in a balloon
but I was hiding in a box
People always told me to listen when daddy talks
Yeah he named me Falcon
yeah he needs a shrink
but no one else's dad can
make everyone think
they're in a balloon
And now I'm famous too

I was napping in the box when he cut the balloon loose
then immediately called the Colorado local news
Then everyone who watched tv feared that I might die
But my attic was as close as I got to the sky
And the next day I was on the national news
They asked me why I hid and so I puked

Oh, I was in a balloon
but I wasn't in a balloon,
they called me the Balloon boy
but I wasn't in a balloon
Oh yeah my dad named me Falcon
yeah he needs a shrink
but no one else's dad can
make everyone think
they're in a balloon
And I'm famous too

And now everyone wants to take my dad away from me
because he contributed to my delinquency
But daddy tell me please all I really want to know
Do you think we'll get another tv show

about how wife swap has a different meaning in jail

Hank (talking): So I'm gonna give you all a break and that's what I'm gonna do. I'm not gonna tell you all the insightful things that I think Balloon Boy tells us about America today. I'm gonna do that tomorrow.

Actually, tomorrow I'm think I'm gonna talk about Hoaxes and how they're nothing new. And there's probably no reason we should be surprised that this happened because this happened hundreds of times since the beginning of news media began, the beginning began. When the beginning begin? The beginning of the beginning was a long time ago. Anyway...

Oh, P.S., you may have noticed that my guitar says "This machine pwns n00bs" on it, that's because it's the title of my new album, and here is the cover of my new album. Again, I'm ripping someone off, not only am I ripping of Woody Guthrie whose guitar said "This machine kills fascists", which I've taken to a different, though not greater, level, I also was ripping off somebody in the comments on YouTube, when I called my guitar a pwner, somebody in the comments said "that machine pwns n00bs", so thank you to that person, whoever you were, for naming my album.

We are hoping for the super soon release date of November 16th, that's very soon, in my time anyway it's like a month away and there are seventeen songs on the album, and no, none of them are duplicate songs, none are talking tracks, they are all songs! I can't believe that I had that many songs! When I have the track list all together, I'll probably be posting them on twitter, if you're not following me, twitter.com/hankgreen. Also, you can track me on dailybooth, dailybooth.com/hankgreen.
