Say “So Long, Farewell” to Rosie O & Sing-a-Long with the Ventilators

posted at 6:56 am on April 26, 2007 by Bryan

We’re all about interactivity and Web 2.0 and all that here at Hot Air, so here’s the ultimate in future-retro interactivity: Sing along with us while we serenade Rosie O’Donnell off the View. Print, save, and pass around these Rosie-adapted lyrics to the classic song, “So long, farewell,” from The Sound of Music. Sorry, we’re all out of bouncing balls.

So long, Rosie
Lyrics by Bryan Preston
Piano accompaniment by Michelle Malkin

There’s a mad sort of ranting
On the show called The View
With applause from the audience, too
But up in Babwa’s office
An absurd question bird
Is popping out to say “You’re through”
(You’re through, cuckoo, You’re through, cuckoo)

Regretfully they tell us
Firmly, though they won’t tell us
you’ve been pushed out
You’re through
You’re through

So long, ching-chong
KSM bids you goodnight
We hate to lose this pretty, pretty sight

So long, ching-chong
Trump bids a fond adieu
We know one square
is not enough for you you

So long, ching-chong
Tom says Auf Weidersehen
We’d like to say
your poetry is lame

So long, ching-chong
The Truther’s end is nigh
You leave Allah heaves
A sigh and says goodbye
Goodbye

We’re glad you’re gone
We cannot tell a lie
Fire can melt steel
and you can Google why

Big Ro has gone
The View won’t be the same

So long, ching-chong
Mahmoud bids you goodbye

Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

All of you at Hot Air are so creative. I just loved it!

Two AWESOME Vents in a row! Better than morning coffee.

hillbillyjim on April 26, 2007 at 7:32 AM

Holy Cowbells of Rosie that was funny.

She’s a journalist!
She’s a guest host!
She’s a vLogger!
She’s a pianist!
She’s a SONGWRITER!

Is there anything this Michelle Malkin cannot do?

Black Adam on April 26, 2007 at 7:32 AM

Credit for the lyrics go to Bryan, but thanks! ;)

Black Adam on April 26, 2007 at 7:32 AM

Don’t forget she’s an author.

She is a satirist (a la hunger strike parody)

She’s a war correspondant.

I’m sure the list goes on.

hillbillyjim on April 26, 2007 at 7:41 AM

And dont forget cheerleader!

Become a Truther.

I can just see her sucking down the streudle and flirting with the girl goats.

Where are the lyrics to “Analweiss”? (Ode to Rosie One Sheet)

Hening on April 26, 2007 at 8:13 AM

Sorry. Not gonna sing along. It’s bad enough that thoughts of that fat lesbian vampire bat are going to be invading my thoughts the next time I watch “The Sound of Music”, I am certainly not going to reinforce it by getting any more involved. Next time I hope they use something from a worthless musical like “Rocky Horror”.

How about “Touch a, touch a, touch me? Replace “touch” with “eat”. Consider that “wild and untamed thing” and “I’m going home” have possibilities also.

Considering the sickness seen in rocky horror, the image of a fat lesbian vampire bat is more fitting, so no harm no foul.

I’m sure the list goes on.

And she’s a wife and mother!

Sorry, capital-F Feminists.

saint kansas on April 26, 2007 at 8:57 AM

“Sound of Music”-or as I refer to it”Sound of Mutants” is one of my LEAST favorite musicals!
As a soprano I’ve gotten stuck singing “Sound of Music”, “Do Re Mi”, and “My favorite Things” ad nauseum.
…AND the story’s not even CLOSE to what ‘really’ happened-so this parody just warms the cockles of my anti-Rodgers/Hammerstein little heart.

annoyinglittletwerp on April 26, 2007 at 8:58 AM

We know one square
is not enough for you you

HI-larious!

liberrocky on April 26, 2007 at 8:59 AM

If I could sing, I’d join in.

steveegg on April 26, 2007 at 9:44 AM

If I could sing, I’d join in.

Hey, it didn’t stop us.

Bryan on April 26, 2007 at 9:45 AM

Bryan, I’m sorry I didn’t give you credit for those lyrics.

Much props to the Preston.

Michelle, Can you make Lumpia?

Mazztek on April 26, 2007 at 10:08 AM

Bryan on April 26, 2007 at 9:45 AM

Get me a microphone then (and mute your speakers ;-)

steveegg on April 26, 2007 at 10:10 AM

Michelle, Can you make Lumpia?

I can answer that in the affirmative. She makes lumpia, and it’s delicious.

Bryan on April 26, 2007 at 10:24 AM

Bryan on April 26, 2007 at 10:24 AM

Michelle, Ang Matamis kOng Mina Ma-Hal! (spelled phonetically)

So, she really can do everything, then.

Mazztek on April 26, 2007 at 10:38 AM

So Long – Ching Chong… Perfect!

Candy Slice on April 26, 2007 at 10:44 AM

Wonderful rendition. Maybe next time you can work out the harmony parts……..

They would have had to laugh pretty hard to top me.

So funny! Thanks for the laugh!

EricPWJohnson: “Never has a face launched a 1000 posts”

Ah. Homer! The Classics! And a great metaphore.

“Sing, O goddess, the anger of Michelle wife of Jesse, that brought countless ills upon the Rosie. Many a brave soul did it send hurrying down to using the single square, and many a liberal did it yield a prey to utter humiliation, for so were the counsels of The Vent fulfilled from the day on which the daughter of Lesbos, and great Michelle, first fell out with one another….”

I like it!

Exit Question: If Helen of Troy was the face that launched 1000 ships, how many ships would Rosie’s sink?

georgej on April 26, 2007 at 11:58 AM

Help Wanted ads, Google It! Wow thats gotta hurt! Live by the sword die by the sword. s’long ching chong.

sonnyspats1 on April 26, 2007 at 12:02 PM

Funny!
And quick – the announcement was when?
(or have you been humming something like this for a while, with optimistic anticipation?)

naliaka on April 26, 2007 at 12:18 PM

You leave Allah heaves

Sweet!

Drtuddle on April 26, 2007 at 12:25 PM

Bryan on April 26, 2007 at 10:24 AM

“It is the Filipino version of the egg rolls.
It can be served as a side dish or as an appetizer.”

I googled What

Drtuddle on April 26, 2007 at 12:35 PM

LMAO!! Great way to start the morning, although I still need my morning blaster of coffee!

Michelle, you and Hotair are awesome, I just found your site the other day. I make it a point to watch The Factor whenever you’re on or guest hosting and I just happened to catch the Hotair website address posted on the screen earlier this week, wish I had seen it sooner!!

I’ve sent the link to your site to all in my address book (especially to my liberal friends, all two of them). You really are multi-talented and I’ll make it a point of starting each day off with my Hotair and coffee fix!

My favorite verse in the song:

We’re glad you’re gone
We cannot tell a lie
Fire can melt steel
and you can Google why

When I first heard about Tokyo-Rosie’s ridiculous statement on the View about it being the first time in history that fire melted steel, I couldn’t contain the laughter!! My first thought was….hmmmm….isn’t that how steel is produced, by subjecting iron ore to fire until it melts? Even more amusing was how all the “truthers” jumped on her statement, proclaiming how brave and smart she was…like she was some sort of hero and patriot (some even crying “Rosie for President” now that’s scary thought) when all her statement achieved was exposing how ignorant and ridiculous both Tokyo-Rosie and the truthers are!!

Help Wanted ads, Google It!

I wouldn’t worry too much about Tokyo-Rosie being able to find work, after all, now that she’s a fire science, engineering, and metallurgy expert I’m certain some engineering firm will hire her!

Ding-dong the ching-chong is gone!!!

Liberty or Death on April 26, 2007 at 12:46 PM

so, no mo ro po?
oh no…low blow

James on April 26, 2007 at 12:48 PM

LOL to the song and James’ above comments. You guys are pretty funny today!
God I love it here. What a refreshing break from my day with the crazy people….

PoliticallyIncorrectSandy on April 26, 2007 at 1:16 PM

The happiest person yesterday, or the day before, was Barbara Walters, who’s half owner of the View. I don’t believe her for 2 seconds when she says she didn’t know. I believe she had much to do with the negotiations in the background.

The saddest should be the righties.

Entelechy on April 26, 2007 at 3:39 PM

I hope the View folds. As long as it still has joy on it..pathetic.

I could never figure out why they wanted to eliminate Star jones then employed pathetic rosie!
