Simple Sarah Says…

Palin Simple simon

Wouldn’t it be funny if, while in Hong Kong at the CLSA Investors’ Forum, the quitting ex-governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin experiences a technical difficulty. Imagine that she forgets her speech or her teleprompter breaks down and she is forced to entertain the attendees by shooting from the hip (hopefully not with her trusted sidearm). What could she possibly think of to talk about or do?

Asians love “karaoke”, but then again she would need the teleprompter because we know that she could not possibly remember the lyrics to any song other than “Rock-A-Bye-Baby.” Charades maybe? No, the cultural differences would make that too difficult. I know! She could entertain everyone with a simple game that is cross-cultural and only requires that you mimic the game leader. Palin could launch into a game of “Simple Sarah Says.” What’s that, you don’t know this game? Well, just sit back and follow the instructions in today’s song parody. You are sure to have a blast.

In honor of the troops, please click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with the parody.

SIMPLE SARAH SAYS

(sung to the 1910 Fruitgum Company song “Simon Says”)

She likes to play a game,
That is so much fun,
And it’s something even she can do,
The name of the game is “Simple Sarah Says”,
And she would like for you to play it too

Put style gel in your hair,
Simple Sarah says,
Lipstick on your mouth,
Simple Sarah says,
Do it when Palin says,
Simple Sarah says,
And they will vote you right out

Simple Sarah says,
Put glasses on your head,
Don some pants that stretch,
Sarah says,

Simple Sarah says,
Get Bristol out of bed,
That Levi is stiff,
Sarah says,

A beehive on your head,
Simple Sarah says,
The First Dude by your side,
Simple Sarah says,
Hate speech for the left,
Simple Sarah says,
Kind words for the right

(musical interlude)

F-me pumps that are red,
Simple Sarah says,
A gun strapped to your side,
Simple Sarah says,
Diversity left,
Simple Sarah says,
Only whites on the right

Now that we have learned,
To play this game with she,
Sarah Palin has something to do,
Let’s try it once again,
We’ll mimic Sarah P.,
But let’s do it while we’re drinking too

Go kill a polar bear,
Simple Sarah says,
Give your shoes a shine,
Simple Sarah says,
Dress yourself like a whore,
Simple Sarah says,
Ah, you’re looking fine,
Simple Sarah says,
Now, interview if you dare,
Simple Sarah says,
Mingle with the slime,
Simple Sarah says,
Get your ass out the door,
Simple Sarah says,
Make it double time
