"Money For Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies" as written by Mark Knopfler and Gordon Matthew Sumner....
Beverly Hillbillies

Huh, now lookie here people
Listen to my story
A little story 'bout a man named Jed
You know something?
That poor mountaineer
They say he barely kept his family fed

Now, let me tell you
One day he was shootin'
Old Jed was shootin' at some food
When all of a sudden right up from the ground, there
Well, there came a bubblin' crude

Oil that is Well, maybe you call it
Black gold or Texas tea
He gonna move next to Mr. Drysdale
And be a Beverly hillbilly

Before you know it, all the kinfolk are-a-sayin'
Yeah, buddie, move away from there
That little Clampet got his own cement pond
That little Clampet, he's a millionaire

Now, everyone said Californie
Is the place that you oughta be
We got to load up this here truck now
We got to move to Beverly
Hills, that is

Swimming pools
Move-a-move-a-movie stars
Look it that, look it that

Beverly Beverly Beverly hillbillies
Y'all come back now, y'hear?
Beverly Beverly Beverly hillbillies
Beverly Beverly Beverly hillbillies
Beverly Beverly Beverly hillbillies

    Okay... but it's actually a parody of Dire Strait's Money For Nothing, and Weird Al's video was an amazingly good spoof of the original. CGI was pretty tough stuff at the time, and they did a great job of remaking the all-computerized characters.

    General CommentIt is awesome how Mark Knopfler wouldn't let Al do a spoof of the song without letting him play the guitar.
