The Lyrics

Presenting the 19th Annual Björk Awards for the worst in Oscar fashion. I never thought the men would have worse outfits than the women. It’s been that kind of year (and change). And, since it’s the Oscars, I wrote this to Sir Elton John’s cover, not The Beatles’ original.
(instrumental opening)

Picture yourself in a hot pink tuxedo
like Colman Domingo, it’s burning my eyes.
The Oscars won’t have to pay bill for electric.
The rods and the cones, that suit fries.

Such awful outfits of yellow and green
worn to awards by the girls.
This year, the boys outdid
themselves, their taste in clothes gone.

This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
Oh...

Leslie Odom Jr. looks like the trophy.
“Dress for job that you want,” he’ll philosophize.
Everyone smiles as he drifts past the critics
that grow so incredibly wry.

LaKeith Stanfield, hear the ‘70s call.
They want their big collar back.
Paul Raci channeling Ronnie James Dio, that’s wrong.

This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
Oh…

(instrumental break)

LaKeith Stanfield, hear the ‘70s call.
They want their big collar back.
Paul Raci channeling Ronnie James Dio, that’s wrong.

This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
Oh…

Picture yourself walking in Union Station.
No Theatre Kodak, to cut down on dies.
Suddenly some guy is there in Versace
and makes you want to hide your eyes…

This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
Oh...

This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
This time, it’s the guys, I’m shamin’.
Oh…
(repeat ‘til fade)

I didn't realize I was taking a cue from Anthony Hopkins, but I slept through the Oscars. It's been years since I've seen one of the nominated films. Steven Yeun was about the only nominee I found who seemed to be dressed in normal formalwear. Leslie Odom Jr. was looking for an award for his performance as the Oscar Statuette. Colman Domingo's outfit could blind me, even on the computer screen. But, he'll never get lost in a snow storm.
