La La La, La La La La La La

Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Oh thank you God for making me...not meet Paris Hilton!


I've been thinking

I've been thinking about something

Maybe I'll spend some money today

Maybe I'll get my picture taken again and again and again

and again and again and again and again

And Why? I don't know why!

Just why not?


Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton, Paris Hilton where are you baby? 

Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton

Paris HIlton, where are you baby?

Where's your brain!

Where's your brain!

Where's your brain!

Where's your brain!


Paris Hilton, Paris Hilton you're so beautiful!

Oh yeah, oh yeah yeah

Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton, you make me sick!


I don't even know why she makes me sick!

Well, I'd probably make her sick, too!

But you know what? I couldn't care less!
