Pot Sings At Kettle

You Don’t Know Nothing About Hard Work

US Pop Singer Pink (with help from professional Lesbians “The Indigo Girls”), addressing US president George W. Bush.

Which reminds me of another great “Message Song” from a few years back…

Now look at them yo-yo’s, that’s the way you do it
You play the guitar on that MTV
That ain’t workin’, that’s the way you do it
Money for nothin’ and your chicks for free
Now that ain’t workin’, that’s the way you do it
Lemme tell ya, them guys ain’t dumb
Maybe get a blister on your little finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

I mean seriously Pink, what the fuck were you thinking?

Max Music on Fox plays this song about 3 times an hour. I swear I am going to stab someone if I ever hear it again.

    Yeah I had a laugh at the whole “hard work” line in that song. As for what was she thinking, with the whole Peta Vs Sheep thing I don’t see thinking as Pinks strong suit.

    I love Dire Straits. Embed the clip next time. 🙂

    P.S. You 70 yet?

    I agree; it is more than a bit ridiculous that a politician should be lectured by a recording artist who is as far removed from the lot of the poor and starving as he is. Especially when coupled with examples of hardship that follow; ‘making a bed out of a cardboard box’, stands out in particular. As far as I am aware, only homeless people sleep in cardboard boxes, and while the homeless person’s life could be described as hard, it involves very little work.

    The lyrics aside, the song is musically unremarkable; twangy hippie guitar tunes that could accompany any number of protest songs. However, the line ‘you don’t know nothing about hard work’ indicates ignorance of basic grammar; the use of ‘don’t’ and ‘nothing’ in the same sentence is a double negative, to say that somebody ‘doesn’t know nothing’ suggests that they in fact know something, which contradicts the message of the song, and is thus redundant.
