"Levi Johnston's Blues" as written by and Benjamin Scott/hornby Folds....
Woke up this morning, what do I see?
Three thousand cameras pointed at me.
Dude says, "You Levi?"
I'm like, "Yes, that's me sir."
"Well, you just knocked up the VP nominee's daughter."

So I tell him, "No, you got it wrong, mister,
Already got a girl, and her name is Bristol."
And they all laugh and say, "Where you been, sonny?
Your mother-in-law's a heartbeat from the presidency."

And I say, "Mother-in-law? No, we ain't getting married!"
They say, "Soon you will, boy; she just announced it."
I get on my dirt bike and ride to my girl's home,
I'm gonna lay down the law
And tell her what's going on

I'm a fucking redneck,
I live to hang out with the boys, play some hockey, do some fishing
And kill some moose.
I like to shoot the shit, do some chilling I guess,
You fuck with me and I kick your ass.

So we talk and it turns out we don't believe in abortion
And sex outside marriage is against our religion.
And when I try to tell 'em I'm eighteen years old,
They say, "Levi, it's too late,
You gotta do as you're told."

I say, "Mother-in-law? No, we ain't getting married!"
They say, "Soon you will, boy; she just announced it."
I get on my dirt bike and ride to my girl's home,
Gonna lay down the law
And tell her what's going on:

I'm a fucking redneck,
I live to hang out with the boys, play some hockey, do some fishing
And kill some moose.
I like to shoot the shit and do some chilling I guess,
You fuck with me and I kick your ass.

I'm a fucking redneck,
I live to hang out with the boys, get on my snowboard, do some fishing
And kill some moose.
I like to shoot the shit, do some chilling I guess,
You fuck with me and I kick your ass.

Yeah, I like to shoot the shit, do some chillin' I guess
Kick some ass

I'm a fucking redneck,
I live to hang out with the boys, play some hockey, do some fishing
And kill some moose.
I like to shoot the shit and do some chilling I guess,
You fuck with me and I kick your ass.

    General CommentThis song is pretty self-explanitory. I find the lyrics funny, and the music sounds very good.The lyrics weren't written by Mr. Folds, they were written by Nick Hornby.

    Song MeaningOn the surface it's about the guy who got Bristol Palin pregnant.
    But at a concert Ben Folds explained there was more to it. He basically said there are moments in your life when you're young where things get real(his example was when he wrecked his mom's car) and you're like "shit, I need to grow up like right now" because you don't know how to handle the situation.
    So basically Nick Hornby took the idea of that and applied it to Levi Johnston at the point where he says "gonna lay down the law" then goes into a quote taken from Levi's myspace, because basically he's too young to really lay down the law. He's just a kid.
