Ben Folds Sings About Trials And Tribulations Of Levi Johnston

Now that Levi Johnston has reunited with Bristol Palin and they’re headed for marital and reality TV bliss, his life is really changing.

Singer/songwriter Ben Folds is writing a a song about him and his life!

The song, with the live audio released on YouTube, is part of an upcoming collaboration between Nick Hornby and Folds. It begins: “Woke up this morning, what do I see? 3,000 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 daughter.'”

The chorus actually borrows directly from Johnston’s now-defunct MySpace page that became popular after Sarah Palin was announced as the GOP VP nominee. This is a pretty classic hook – but it makes it even better that it came from Levi himself:

I’m a fuckin’ redneck, I like to hang out with the boys
Play some hockey, do some fishing, and kill some moose.
I like to shoot the shit and do some chillin’, I guess.
Ya fuck with me and I’ll kick your ass.

Well, now the proposed reality show has a theme song…

Here’s the audio (h/t Perez Hilton):
