"Weird Al" Yankovic - Perform This Way, Bukan "Born This Way" (Lady Gaga)

Friday, April 22, 2011

Setelah menerima penolakan, "Weird Al" Yankovic diizinkan untuk menyanyikan lagu berjudul “Perform This Way”, sebuah lagu Parodi yang menyindir lagu "Born This Way" milik Lady Gaga.

"Weird Al" Yankovic yang nyeleneh dengan lagunya “Perform This Way” tersebut adalah seorang seniman yang sering membuat plesetan lagu-lagu orang lain, salah satunya adalah lagu Michael Jackson “Beat it” berpaling menjadi "Eat It", dan masih ada puluhan lagu yang lain.

Seperti yang ditampilkan dalam video yang diposting di YouTube dan tulisan di blognya, penjualan video dan lagu “Perform This Way” akan digunakan untuk Kampanye Hak Asasi Manusia.

"Weird Al" Yankovic sebenarnya tidak butuh persetujuan dari Lady Gaga, hanya untuk alasan kesopanan, ia mengirim lagu “Perform This Way” ke menajer Lady GaGa, manajer tersebut tidak meneruskannya ke Lady Gaga.

Dalam postingan Yankovic di blog pribadinya, manajer Lady Gaga meminta maaf dan katanya Gaga menyukai lagu “Perform This Way”-nya.



"Weird Al" Yankovic - Perform This Way Lyrics:

My mama told me when I was hatched
Act like a superstar
Save your allowance, buy a bubble dress
And someday you will go far
Now on red carpets, well, I'm hard to miss
The press follows everywhere I go
I'll poke your eye out with a dress like this
Back off and enjoy the show!

I'm sure my critics will say it's a grotesque display
Well, they can bite me, baby -- I perform this way
I might be wearin' Swiss cheese or maybe covered with bees
It doesn't mean I'm crazy -- I perform this way

Ooo, my little monsters pay... lots 'cause I perform this way
Baby, I perform this way
Ooo, don't worry, I'm okay... hey, I just perform this way
I'm not crazy, I perform this way

I'll be a troll or evil queen
I'll be a human jelly bean
'Cause every day is Halloween
For me...

I'm so completely original
My new look is all the rage
I'll wrap my small intestines 'round my neck
And set fire to myself on stage
Weird Al Yankovic Perform This Way

I'll wear a porcupine on my head
On a W-H-I-M
And for no reason now I'll sing in French
Excusez-moi, Qui a pété? (Who cut the cheese?)

Got my straight jacket today, it's made of gold lamé
No, not because I'm crazy - I perform this way
I strap prime rib to my feet, cover myself with raw meat
I'll bet you've never seen a skirt steak worn this way

Don't be offended when you see
My latest pop monstrosity
I'm strange, weird, shocking, odd, bizarre
I'm Frankenstein, I'm Avatar
There's nothing too embarrassing
I'll honestly do anything
But wear white after Labor Day
'Cause baby, I perform this way

Hope you won't think it's cliché if I go nude today
Don't call the cops now, baby, I perform this way
No reason I should regret all the attention I get
I'm not completely crazy, I perform this way, yeah

I perform this way-hey, I perform this way-hey
I'm always deviating from the norm this way-hey
I perform this way-hey, I perform this way-hey
I'm really not insane -- I just perform this way-hey
