Sarah Palin Boob Tube Themes – 27

Sarah_television4

This is a true Back To The Future moment at Lynnrockets’ Blast-Off. It all started back in March of 2009 with a few Sarah Palin television show theme song parodies posted on the comment pages of various newspapers and accommodating blogs, the most notable of which are The Mudflats and Palingates. As the result of some encouragement from readers, we started this blog and continued to parody television show theme songs. All was going well until we realized that television shows stopped having lyrics to their themes in the 1980′s ( with the notable exception of Two And A Half Men which goes something like this, “Men, men, men, men, manly men, men, men” anyway,  you get it).

As you can imagine, we ran out of quick little television theme songs and had to expand into the world of real songs. This was a more difficult task because real songs are much longer and have a lot more words. Nonetheless, we have tried our best and to date we have been able to post longer song parodies on a daily basis. we must admit however, that we do not know how much longer the creative juices will continue to flow.

In any event, Sarah Palin’s junket to Hong Kong reminded us of a Saturday morning cartoon which aired in the 1970′s at the height of popularity of the martial arts films of Bruce Lee. The subject of the cartoon was a mild mannered janitor that also happened to be a dog as well as the martial arts master and super hero, “Hong Kong Phooey”. Luckily for us, the theme song has lyrics.

In an attempt to familiarize you folks with the tune and to entertain you a little bit, we have provided the opening credits to the actual cartoon below as well as the song parody. This is all a little silly, but we hope you enjoy.

HONG KONG PHOOEY

(sung to the TV theme song of the 1970’s cartoon “Hong Kong Phooey”)

Who is this super zero?  Todd? NO!
Stapleton the SarahPAC spokeswoman? No!
Joe the mild mannered plumber?

Hong Kong Phooey, Sarah Palin’s alibi
Hong Kong Phooey, with a winking, blinking eye

Oh, she’s senile, no sense of style, a mouth that just won’t stop
When the going gets tough, she’s had enough
So she’ll Hong Kong Phooey shop

Hong Kong Phooey, Sarah Palin’s alibi
Hong Kong Phooey, with a winking, blinking eye
Chong chicky chong chicky chong chong chong
Chicky chop chop chop it bow wow wow

Hong Kong Phooey
Vanriffic!

Sarah Palin’s Hong Kong Sing Along

Sarah Palin waves to the First Dude as she leaves for Hong Kong.

There have been no juicy updates this last week as to the details surrounding Sarah Palin’s guest speaking appearance at the CLSA forum in Hong Kong on September 23rd. We have learned however, that the event will be closed to the press. As Keith Olbermann said last night, this is interesting because Palin will be palling around with communists while restricting access to the democratic free press.We still do not know if the event organizers believe that the quitting ex-governor of Alaska actually has something meaningful to offer this group of investors or if her invitation is actually some sort of practical joke. The safe money however, is on the latter.

Please click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with the parody also, too.

LEAVING ON A JET PLANE

(sung to the John Denver song “Leaving On A Jet Plane”)

All her bags are packed, she’ll “go with the flow”
Dressed like a flight attendant ‘ho
To save some dough Palin will fly stand-by
The “First Dude” must stay home, he’s so forlorn
Stapleton’s waiting, she’s blowing her horn
There’s so much stuff in Hong Kong she will buy

She’s bitchy yet smiles with glee
Giddy that they’ll pay her fee
She’s more famous now than Plumber Joe
She’s leavin’ on a jet plane
We hope that she won’t come back again
We love to see her go

At Kai Tak Airport her plane sets down
Nobody greets her with a crown
Don’t those Asians even know a thing?
She hopes that her room has a nice view
She hopes that she can see Russia too
Damn, she forgot that present for their king

She’s bitchy yet smiles with glee
Giddy that they’ll pay her fee
She’s more famous now than Plumber Joe
She’s leavin’ on a jet plane
We hope that she won’t come back again
We love to see her go

Now the time has come, her debut
They will learn, she has no clue
Averted eyes hope she fades away
They didn’t know she was dumb
Now they want her to just go home
Boarding that jet plane without delay

She’s bitchy yet smiles with glee
Happy that they paid her fee
Thinking of the ways she’ll spend her dough
She’s leavin’ on a jet plane
That Hong Kong trip was such a pain
She should have just said “no”

She’s leavin’ on a jet plane
That Hong Kong trip was such a pain
Why not pull a “no-show”?
