Kris Something-Something and Keith Whatshisname

Kris Allen and Keith Urban have done a few shows together. At these shows, they have performed “Jack and Diane” by John Mellencamp four separate times. Like the talented, professional musicians with heaps of collective experience performing in front of crowds (or, y’know, millions on live TV) they are, the two perform it flawlessly.

In honor of their perfection, I bring you my vocally perfect rendition of “Jack and Diane (Or Some Approximation Thereof).”


Lyrics:
Little ditty called Jack and Diane
Has some lyrics we should’ve known before we began
Least this first verse is not too hard
We’re still error free for now – best run so far

Something bout chili dogs, line ends with “Tastee Freez”
Semi-sexual reference makes getting this line right a breeze
Maybe now I’ll mumble some sounds that sorta could go here
Put on enough Southern drawl and just hope they can’t hear
And sing

“Oh yeah, we’ll go on
Even if we get the words all wrong”
Sing, “Oh yeah, we’ll go on
Even if we get the words all wrong, to this song”

Wholly blanked out on all these words for a moment
Stand in silence and then scream, “best James Dean”
Crap, who sings this line? We need to work out our signals
Who cares, anyway? Words are overrated.
And sing

“Oh yeah, we’ll go on
Even if we get the words all wrong”
Sing, “Oh yeah, we’ll go on
Even though we got all the words wrong”
