Lyrics

Inspired by the management/sales weasels who were supposedly (as reported by Dave McKenna here: http://deadspin.com/tony-kornheiser-to-mercifully-depart-d-c-airwaves-afte-1780342679 ) giving each other high fives when Kornheiser announced he was leaving the radio station to start his own podcast. Here’s how it all [supposedly] played out.
*How fitting that the weasels are the subject of the first Milli Vanilli parody! I wrote and recorded this almost a week ago but a great lip sync performance cannot be rushed. Thanks, Mandy! Thanks also to the editing master, Mr. Fuse.

Lyrics:
You said you were were leaving
You told us goodbye (goodbye)
You threw away prime cheddah!
Is this 1 percenter pride?
Now we're handing out the high fives (high fives)
While we're eating your free food.
I bet we'll get a raise.
So Thank you, Mr. K!
Finally giving us something (finally giving us something)
'Bout time you gave us something.

Break out the champagne (yeah, a smooth Cristal!)
Break out the cigars (you left 'em behind)
I doubt you even know, need sponsors for your show
Or you ain't gettin' paid, no no!
Sorry to rain on your parade

Not!

Break out the champagne yeah yeah
Break out the champagne yeah yeah
Break out the champagne yeah yeah (break out the champagne, break out the champagne, break out the champagne baby)
Break out the champagne yeah yeah (break out the cigars you left behind)
Break out the champagne yeah yeah (behind, break out, break out the champagne)

*A parody of “Blame It On The Rain” by Milli Vanilli
