Kanye West Superstar

(Originally published on MOLI 5/8/8)

(A tribute/parody inspired by the Glow in the Dark tour’s Miami stop on May 6.)

Every time I watch you rap
I don’t understand
Why you let the things you say
Get so out of hand
You would manage better
If we could see your band
80 minutes of just Kanye on stage —
Did the ego just land?

Oh, it’s your spaceship “Jane”
You sure have an imagination
(Though TLC in ’99 did the robot voice)
You’re sweeping the nation

Don’t you get me wrong
Don’t you get me wrong now
Don’t you get me wrong
Don’t you get me wrong

I really loved the show
I really loved the show
I really loved the show
I really loved the show

Kanye West
Kanye West
We love you
But need the wood, get off the cross

Kanye West
Superstar
Do you believe you’re who you say you are?

We all know you think that you’re
The pick of the crop
But it’s nice you brought some friends —
It can be so lonely at the top
Lupe Fiasco, he was where it’s at
Is he where you were?
N.E.R.D. rocked the crowd
Pharrell is so hot
Speaking of hot, Rihanna — ouch!
Was that some cheesecake? Or
Is she on a dominatrix trip,
A record and ball breaker!

Don’t you get me wrong Don’t you get me wrong
Don’t you get me wrong, now Don’t you get me wrong
Don’t you get me wrong Don’t you get me wrong
Don’t you get me wrong, now Don’t you get me wrong

I really loved the show
I really loved the show
I really loved the show
I really loved the show

Kanye West
Kanye West
We love you
But need the wood, get off the cross

Kanye West
Superstar
Do you believe you’re who you say you are?
