Venomenous Bites!–The Year-ender Song

Posted on December 24, 2003 by jimparedes

I don’t know if it was the same with you but these people/events of 2003 got me emailing, commenting, cursing, applauding, laughing, crying, arguing, seething, clapping, etc. They were, to be sure, responsible for the level of sanity we now find ourselves as a people.

They sure stung us bad. Let’s hope it wasn’t fatal! As a way of saying goodbye to them, please sing the lyrics below to the tune of Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start The Fire”

Candidate GMA, Ping Lacson, FPJ,

Brother Eddie Villanueva, Senator Roco

Noli, Danding, Kris and Joey, Brat pack of the NPC,

Grin-go, Oak-wood, senate inquiries

REFRAIN: We didn’t start the fire. The world’s been burning since the world’s been turning…..

Jose Pidal, Bishop Yalung, Mike Arroyo, Ted Bacani,

Typhoons, flash floods, disaster in Leyte

STDs, SARS scare, coup d’etat, junta,

Peso devaluation, 55 to 1

REPEAT REFRAIN:

Kidnappings unabated, Supreme Court versus congress,

SMC Boycott, bombings in Davao

MRT, Jingle stations, number coding, midnight madness,

Sea Games, PBA, Go Manny Pacquiao!

REPEAT REFRAIN:

Back in court once again, Kuratong Baleleng,

Quezon City judge says Ping is innocent!

Computerization, Camacho resignation,

Al Ghozi executed, Commander Robot amputated!

REPEAT REFRAIN

Traf-fic, gar-bage, air pollution, demolition

Terror at the airport, bombings in Iraq

George Bush, Ka Blas, 10% amusment tax

Jemaiya Islamiya, and Abu Sayyaf

REPEAT REFRAIN

ABS-CBN, GMA Channel 7,

Sex Bombs, Ocho-ocho, and spagheti song

Station wars heat up, ratings, scandals

Midgets on Television, Mura at Mahal

S-Files, The-Buzz, Morning Girls, and Sis,

Chinovela, F4, I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE!



REPEAT REFRAIN

Did I miss out on anyone?

GOODBYE 2003. HELLO 2004!
