Why you gotta be so rude? Probably a statement you have heard in the past few weeks as the Canadian reggae fusion band, MAGIC!, climbs the radio charts with their single “Rude.”
Their debut album Don’t Kill The Magic released worldwide at the beginning of July and has caught on like wildfire with “Rude” being the most popular single so far. So popular, parents Benji and Jenna Cowart created the “Dad’s Side of the Story.” These two clever parents wrote new lyrics and uploaded the song to YouTube, gaining over a million views in a few days.
“Saturday morning came without warning,
Woke me up from my bed.
Seeking permission to marry my princess,
Something’s wrong with your big head.
It’s the first time I met you,
Why would I let you run off with my baby girl?
Get back in your Pinto, it’s time that you go,
The answer’s no.”
One of the funniest parts of this video is the mom just walking around in the background with a laundry basket. Why doesn’t she sit next to Benji and rock out? Do you think she is really paying attention to dirty clothes? She is probably too worried about hitting her mark.
Benji and Jenna do have good singing voices, they even have an album on iTunes.
You can compare the Cowart’s version to the original song below:
