The Lyrics

I'm back, homeys. This is a song about that really stupid show on MTV "Jersey Shore". I hate it and I cannot believe people actually watch it. It's vulgar, poorly produced, and plain annoying. What happened to when MTV played MUSIC? Huh? It feels like the execs at MTV have the words "We're desperate" on their foreheads. One last thing, I apologize for mentioning Geddy Lee, Meryl Streep, and Bruce Springsteen in the same passage as those self-proclaimed "guido" morons and incredible waste of prime time TV, Rush, Meryl, and the Boss are all too cool for them. Enjoy.
When my mom and dad lived in the 80's
'Twas worth watching MTV
Neither one was stuck with

But MTV's new SUCKcess
Makes me shriek like Rush's Geddy Lee
A 1 word description

Travesty, Travesty
Travesty, Travesty
Jersey Shore's a downright

The problem with these rowdy people
They mock Italians blatantly
molto irrispettoso*

That gym rat's abs are boring
Watching drunk guys punch that girl Snooki
Why do people like this

Travesty, Travesty
Travesty, Travesty
Jersey Shore's a downright

Travesty, Travesty
Travesty, Travesty
Someone needs to boycott


Travesty, Travesty
Travesty, Travesty
Giving a bad name to
New Jersey

I did a bit of homework
Neither castmate is from New Jersey
Jersey Shore's a lie and

They represent the lovely home state
Of Meryl Streep and Bruce Springsteen
And not in a good way
New Jersey

Travesty, Travesty
Travesty, Travesty
Jersey Shore's a downright

Travesty, Travesty
Travesty, Travesty
I won't waste my time with
*molto irrispettoso = Italian for "very disrespectful".

I don't watch it. I don't need to: I see it every day. Of course, they're not the biggest embarrassment on the Shore. Jabba the Guv has a house at Island Beach, within walking distance (or should I say stumbling distance) from Sleazeside Heights. Five slices, and hold the anchovies.

Ah, damn! I forgot to add a verse. Here it is. Travesty, Travesty, Travesty, Travesty, Quasi-pornographic flagrancy.

I did some research too. And I found out that in 2004, Snooki was charged with SELLING ALCOHOL TO MINORS after a teenage boy DIED in a drunk-driving accident after a party at her house. Man, the show is horrible!

Great song! I haven't had the "pleasure" of watching it myself but I've sure heard enough about it. Sounds like "travesty" is the right word!
MTV now = Moron TV - August 16, 2010 - Report this comment
Great song parody! I haven't seen this show either but it looks pretty awful. Meryl Streep has starred in plenty of good films and I've seen both the band Rush and Bruce Springsteen live in concert and they are GREAT. Don't forget to apologize to Bon Jovi as well - they got more intelligence than this show too. Man, the music sux big time today and MTV has really gone to the gutter.

CG- Obviously MTV. Sam - Thanxxxx I love you 1K times over! MP - Agreed I can't even leave my house without hearing about those scumbags, just like Justin Bieber. Amanda - She really did that? And I thought when she got arrested earlier this month was the first time. What a retard. Bilbopooh - Don't watch it. Watching JS was 2 minutes of my life I will never get back. Travesty is a great definition! MTV - I love Meryl, Rush, and the Boss! I didn't mention Bon Jovi tho. I will agree that MTV is a joke now.
