Sarah, We Hardly Knew Ye


palin campaign

The apocalypse came early this year for the Governor of Alaska.

Our good friend Canada Peg sent us this outstanding song parody to commemorate Sarah Palin's resignation. We like to think of it as Sarah's Swan Song.

It's sung to the tune of the Johnny Horton classic North to Alaska.

Crank up this YouTube video for a kind of Karaoke background and then sing along with the lyrics below.

Johnny Horton's North to Alaska



North Was Alaska: The Sarah Palin Saga
(Lots of Apologies to Johnny Horton)

Way up North, (North in Alaska)
Way up North, (North in Alaska)

North was Alaska,
She's goin' south, the Rush is on.
North was Alaska,
She's goin' south, the Rush is on.

Lil' Sarah left Wasilla in the year two thousand eight,
With the First Dude, her partner, her kids, and Bristol's mate,
They crossed the stage in St. Paul, the crowds they went insane,
So the hockey mom from nowhere joined Maverick John McCain.

She stuck to script and winked and waved to huge crowds far below,
Till she talked to Katie Couric as she mushed malapropos,
With her mind and tongue a-running wild in a language known to none.
Yes, John McCain was a mighty man but with her he came undone.

Her words ever winding
Resigning, they're finding

North was Alaska
She's headin' south, the Rush is on.

Way up North, (North was Alaska)
Way up North, (North was Alaska)

North was Alaska,
She's goin' south, the Rush is on.
North was Alaska,
She's goin' south, the Rush is on.

She returned to Juneau, the land from whence she came.
Said: "Todd, you're a-looking at a gov'ner flushed with fame,
I'll trade away my office; I'm just buried in this state,
For a good point guard knows when to pass & dead fish float too late."

A mandate needs a woman to obfuscate the mind,
Remember a foxy Patriot gal's so hard to find.
I'll build up a warchest to get me my new home
In that big White House in DC so very far south of Nome.

Her words ever winding
Resigning, they're finding

North was Alaska
She's headed south, the race is on.
North was Alaska,
She's goin' south, the race is on.

Way up Yours, (North in Alaska)
Way up Yours, (North in Alaska)
Way up yours ---
