Andy Warhol once said: “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” And boy was he ever correct.

Case in point, singer [lastfm]Ben Folds[/lastfm] and British author Nick Hornby recently collaborated on “Levi Johnston‘s Blues,” a parody about the future son-in-law of former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

Certainly it’s a shame that a creep such as Johnston is immortalized in our pop culture spectrum, but if it’s going to be done by anyone, better Folds and Hornby, then Playgirl.

Song and lyrics below!

“Levi Johnston’s Blues” is one of the tracks from [lastfm]Ben Fold[/lastfm]‘s new album Lonely Avenue, for release Sept. 28. The album collaboration between the two artists features Nick Hornby‘s words set to music by Ben Folds.

It’s been a hot minute since we heard of both Folds and Hornby, and we can’t think of any better way for them to step into the new decade than joining forces.

Learn and laugh about Johnston being a redneck who likes to kill some moose in the lyrics below and click here to be escorted to listen to Ben Folds perform the song live!

  • (Explicit Lyrics Alert:) LEVI JOHNSTON’S BLUE
    Woke up this morning, what do I see?
    Three thousand cameras, pointing at me,
    Dude says, You Levi?, I’m like, Yes, that’s me sir,
    Well, you just knocked up the VP nominee’s daughterSo I tell him, No, you got it wrong, mister,
    Already got a girl, and her name’s Bristol
    They all laugh and say, where you been, sonny?
    Your mother-in-law’s a heartbeat from the presidencySo I say, Mother-in-law? No, we ain’t getting married
    They say soon you will, boy, she just announced it
    I get on my dirt bike, and ride to my girl’s home
    I’m gonna lay down the law, and tell her what’s going on

    Chorus:

  • I’m a f–kin’ redneck, I live to hang out with the boys
    Play some hockey, do some fishing, and kill some moose
    I like to shoot the s–t and do some chillin’, I guess
    Ya f–k with me and I’ll kick your ass

    So we talk and it turns out we don’t believe in abortion
    And sex outside marriage is against our religion
    And when I try to tell them I’m eighteen years old
    They say Levi, it’s too late, you gotta do as you’re told

    I say, Mother-in-law? No, we ain’t getting married
    They say soon you will, boy, she just announced it
    I get on my dirt bike, and ride to my girl’s home
    I’m gonna lay down the law, and tell her what’s going on

    (chorus)

    I like to shoot the shit and do some chillin’, I guess
    I’m a f–kin’ redneck, I live to hang out with the boys
    Play some hockey, do some fishing, and kill some moose
    I like to shoot the s–t and do some chillin’, I guess
    Ya f–k with me and I’ll kick your ass
