Weird Al “Tacky” Lyrics:

It might seem crazy wearing stripes with plaid
I Instagram every meal I’ve had
All my used liquor bottles are on display
We can go to see a show, but I’ll make you pay

Because I’m tacky
Wear my belt with suspenders and sandals with my socks
Because I’m tacky
Got some new glitter Uggs and lovely pink sequined Crocs
Because I’m tacky
Never let you forget some favor I did for you
Because I’m tacky
If you’re ok with that, you might just be tacky too

I meet some chick, ask her this or that
Like, “Are you pregnant, girl, or just really fat?”
Now I’m droppin’ names almost constantly
That’s what Kanye West keeps telling me

Here’s why

Because I’m tacky
Wear my Ed Hardy shirt with florescent orange pants
Because I’m tacky
Got my new résumé, it’s printed in Comic Sans
Because I’m tacky
Think it’s fun threatening waiters with a bad Yelp review
Because I’m tacky
If you think that’s just fine, then you’re probably tacky too

Bring me shame, can’t nothin’
Bring me shame, I never known why
Bring me shame, can’t nothin’
Bring me shame, I said
Bring me shame, can’t nothin’
Bring me shame, it’s pointless to try
Bring me shame, can’t nothin’
Bring me shame, I said

Because I’m tacky
43 bumper stickers and a YOLO license plate
Because I’m tacky
Bring along my coupon book whenever I’m on a date
Because I’m tacky
Practice my twerking moves in line at the DMV
Because I’m tacky
Took the whole bowl of restaurant mints, hey, it said they’re free

Because I’m tacky
I get drunk at the bank and take off my shirt at least
Because I’m tacky
I would live tweet a funeral, take selfies with the deceased
Because I’m tacky
If I’m bit by a zombie, probably not telling you
Because I’m tacky
If you don’t think that’s bad, guess what, then you’re tacky too

Weird Al’s back with a brand new album, 8 brand new music videos, and some serious fashion crimes.

“Tacky,” Al’s much better version of Pharrell’s ubiquitous “Happy,” sees the star mock the relentlessly awful taste of the current generation. Yelp reviewers, Instagrammers, Ed Hardy enthusiasts, and cheapskates get skewered as Al and a host of fellow comedians prance around in clothing not-quite-as-tacky as Pharrell’s hat. Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal, and Jack Black all make appearances in the video, which was shot at the Palace Theatre — which, incidentally, was Maude Lebowski’s apartment in The Big Lebowski.

“Tacky” will live on Al’s new LP, Mandatory Fun, which is due out tomorrow. In addition to the new album, he’s also got 7 more music videos lined up for the coming week.

Al, whose record contract is fulfilled with this album, says he may be done releasing conventional albums, so he wanted Mandatory Fun to be huge. In an interview with NPR, he said:

I wanted to really do what is ostensibly my last album with a big splash. I wanted the first week to be big; I wanted every single day of release week to be an event. I wanted a video to go viral for an entire day and have people talking about that video, and then the next day they’re talking about a new video. I just thought that would be a really fun way to do it, to make a big deal out of release week.

If the uproariously cringe-worthy video for “Tacky” is any indication, it will be a big deal. Stream and read our review of Mandatory Fun right here at Zumic or order at Amazon. For more music, news, videos, and upcoming concert dates, check out Al’s Zumic artist page.
