UPDATED: The Coalition of the Willing…Plays Creep!

by Dylan on February 26, 2004

This (NOTE THAT THE LINK HAS CHANGED) may be the best link ever, so if you click on only one of our “go check this out” links, make this one it.
Following the above link will take you to a RealAudio file (note: it’s 20MB and on the slow side, so be patient) featuring a video of George Bush, Aznar (Spanish president), and Tony Blair performing Creep- in Portugese!
The lyrics have definitely been reworked (“pet-rooooooooooooooooooo-lio”, so anyone would like to translate and send it in, we’d love to post it.
(Thanks to At Ease.)
UPDATE:
Daniel was kind enough to translate the new lyrics for us, and provide some background info on the show. It was originally part of a Portuguese TV show called “Contra-Informa??o” (Counter-Information), a sort of variety program that makes fun of politicians and other public figures.
NEW LYRICS-(Translated)
When I was a kid
My old man used to say
“You’re gonna be important”
But I was an asshole.
I looked like a sponge.
Always drinking.
I wanna be special.
So special.
CHORUS:
But I’m a creep
I’m disgraceful
What am I doing here?
I’m going to drink again.
You can call me stupid
Or even filth.
But I’m president
And I rule the world.
I want you to know.
I’m a God fanatic.
I wanna be special.
So special.
CHORUS
I want an oil wellllllllllllllllll
I want an oil well
Oil…oil…oil…ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiil!!!!
Oooooooooooooooooooooiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiil!
That’s what makes me happy.
Even if I have to use bombs.
I’m so fucking special.
So fucking special.
But I’m a creep
I’m disgraceful
I’m going to drink again
To try to forget
The shit that I’m doing.
(BIG thanks to Daniel!)
