Watch Weird Al Sing A Song About This Week’s Presidential Debate

Weird Al Yankovic has teamed with the Gregory Brothers — the dudes who made 2010’s viral “Bed Intruder” among other videos — on their latest “songification.” It’s called “Bad Hombres, Nasty Women” in case you didn’t catch the two biggest catchphrases that came out of the final presidential debate this past Wednesday night. The G Bros chopped up audio/video from the debate and put it to a generic synth pop beat while Yankovic “moderates in the key of Bb minor.” Choice quotes from each of the candidates are cut to rhyme as Yankovic inserts his own lyrics to play off of them. It’s not the worst thing to come out of the lead-up to the presidential election, but it’s certainly not the best either. Watch it below and check out the lyrics. Can’t believe these sentences came out of a presidential debate. Can we please just vote already?


Such a nasty woman
He choked (wrong)
He choked (wrong)
He goes around with crocodile tears
Wrong, such a nasty woman

We have so many adversaries overseas
Can we all agree to be frenemies?

I would work with our allies in the middle east
That’s the only way we’re going to keep the peace

Mosul Mosul Mosul so sad so sad
It’s a catastrophe so bad so bad

Can everyone achieve the American Dream?
Or should they sign up for my Ponzi scheme?

We are going to go where the money is
We are gonna help small businesses
Our jobs are being sucked out of our economy,
Right now our country is dying dying big league big league

Why should you run the show?
We’ve gotta do more
Tell us cause we need to know
We need to get all of the drug lords
Two more weeks until we vote
You’ll get shot walking to the store
Who should really run the show
Donald got into a twitter war

For the supreme court who would you choose?
Please don’t say me I’m a busy dude

The supreme court it’s what it’s all about
But the second amendment is under such such trauma
I understand and respect gun ownership
I hope the senate confirms the nominee of President Obama

To stop a cold war what should we be doing?
Would you go thumb wrestle Vladimir Putin?

I don’t know Putin. This is not my best friend
Outsmarted Hillary and she’s playing chicken.
Look at the start up they signed

You are willing to spout the Putin line
Cyber attacks from the Kremlin
Designed to influence our election

Putin has a very clear favorite in this race
He’d rather have a puppet as president of the united states

Why should you run the show?
We have horrible deals
Tell us ‘cause we need to know
Donald bought Chinese steel
Two more weeks until we vote
I should win easily
Who should really run the show, the show
He’s talking down our democracy

It’s so dishonest I say it’s rigged
She should never have been allowed to run based on what she did
I see
Our democracy works we’ve had free and fair elections
Donald thinks things are rigged every time things are not going in his direction

We have some bad bad hombres here
And we’re gonna get ‘em out
It’s what it’s all about
Bad hombres

Why should you run the show?
I want to raise the minimum wage
Tell us ‘cause we need to know
Our country is so outplayed
Two more weeks until we vote
We invest from the ground up
Who should really run the show, the show
Our jobs are being suck sucked
