The Lyrics

Presenting the 15th Annual Bjork Awards for the worst in Oscar fashion. In 2000, Icelandic singer-actress Bjork Gudmundsdottir, nominated for "Dancer in the Dark," showed up at the Oscars wearing the infamous "Swan Dress." And Joan Rivers went on "The View" the next day to say, "Ugh! That idiot Bjork! That dress was so bad, even heterosexuals were making fun of it!" This was right after she said, "You don't understand: For gay people, the Oscars ARE the Super Bowl!" This isn't true. If it were, "The Patriot" would have cheated to win Best Picture. Instead, it was nominated for 3 awards, but won none.
(instrumental opening)

There’s something happening here.
Janelle Monae is wearing something sheer.
Leslie Mann in a dress over there.
Yellow billows, got to beware.

I think it’s time we
STOP!
Children:
What’s that gown?
Everybody’s taste is going down.

Dakota Johnson’s apron.
Nobody’s right, and that one is sure wrong.
Allison Schroeder in line
looking like a rainbow, front and behind.

I think it’s time we
STOP!
Hey, what’s that gown?
Everybody’s taste is going down.

What a field day for a dress.
A thousand dollars for that mess.
What’s on Bianca Blanco’s mind?
Giant shoulder puffs on each side.

I think it’s time we
STOP!
Hey, what’s that gown?
Everybody’s taste is going down.

Olivia Culpo plunged deep.
Making us all feel like a creep.
Miss Rancic, she makes me afraid.
Lavender dress, someone should take her away!

I think it’s time we
STOP!
Hey, what’s that gown?
Everybody’s taste is going…
We gotta
STOP!
Hey, what’s that gown?
Everybody’s taste is going…
We better
STOP!
Hey, what’s that gown?
Everybody’s taste is going…
We better
STOP!
Hey, what’s that gown?
Everybody’s taste is going…
(repeat ‘til fade)
