There should be more like Vance.....
Out of it (and glad to be here) in Pennsylvania,
i first heard the song as sung by gwyneth paltrow on glee. that is how i learn about all of the "hip" songs.
there is a g rated version, and it really is a great song. vance's parody uses the word a** and the clean version of the cee lo song doesn't have a single profanity in it.
the song is about a girl who dumps him because he isn't rich. there is nothing disrespectful to woman at all. the problem is the language in the uncensored version, not the sentiment.
Cee Lo Green - Forget You Lyrics
I see you driving 'round town
With the girl i love and i'm like,
Oo, oo, ooo
I guess the change in my pocket
Wasn't enough i'm like,
And forget her too!
I said, if i was richer, i'd still be with ya
Ha, now ain't that some shhh? (ain't that some shhhh?)
And although there's pain in my chest
I still wish you the best with a...
Oo, oo, ooo
Yeah i'm sorry, i can't afford a ferrari,
But that don't mean i can't get you there.
I guess he's an xbox and i'm more atari,
But the way you play your game ain't fair.
I pity the fool that falls in love with you
(oh she's a gold digger)
I've got some news for you
Yeah go run and tell your little boyfriend
Now i know, that i had to borrow,
Beg and steal and lie and cheat.
Trying to keep ya, trying to please ya.
'Cause being in love with you ain't cheap.
Now baby, baby, baby, why d'you wanna wanna hurt me so bad?
(so bad, so bad, so bad)
I tried to tell my mamma but she told me
"this is one for your dad"
(your dad, your dad, your dad)
Uh! Whhhy? Uh! Whhhy? Uh!
Whhhy lady? Oh! I love you oh!
I still love you. Oooh!
