Bristol Palin's 'Dancing With the Stars' song: "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)"

As we reported earlier today, for her very first outing on ABC's dance competition series "Dancing with the Stars," Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and America's Most Famous Unwed Teen Mom, will do the Cha Cha to "Mama Told Me (Not To Come)."

[Insert your double entendre joke here.]

Here's a preview of the hit Three Dog Night tune from 1970:

Want some whiskey in your water
Sugar in your tea
What's all these crazy questions they askin' me
This is the craziest party there could ever be
Don't turn on the lights, 'cause I don't want to see

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
That ain't the way to have fun, no

That is very funny. Apparently she has a sense of humor. By the way, Randy Newman wrote Mama Told me (Not To Come).

That's the funniest thing I've heard today. Thanks for the laugh!

In the song, "Mama" comes off as wise but not convincing.

Mama told "Son,"

"that ain't the way to have fun, son"!

However, son goes to the freaky party anyway. Apparently, son is not very obedient and doesn't give his mother's advice much credence. It seems the unwed mother Palin girl has the same relationship with her mother. The Palin girl doesn't believe that Mama's advice is worth heeding.

However, Mama comes off pretty well in this song, since she did warn her son. And, after attending the party, son sees the wisdom of Mama's advice.

Your mom told you not to come, but you didn't listen and got pregnant, while mom was insisting on abstinence. How do you want the teabaggers to trust her if you are the bad apple?

You should sing something like:

-"Mom's got new brat", or

-"The devil made me do it"

Maybe a witch session with mom and O'Donnel and some fundies will exorcize all the stuff.

And promise mom not to come anymore.

BTW, your partner could use a condom or is he as smart as the Palin family, thinking that kids come in a box brought home by the postman?

Hey bekabo, could you be any shallower?

I look and Bristol Palin and see what she is..... and we all know what THAT is.

There is NO way this girl can impress me. Even if she was a good dancer, which she is not, all I see is an opportunist, living off her sins, just like her Mother!

I will just try to ignore her on DWTS.

She definitely wasn't the worst. Perhaps she has found her true calling and considering her Grizzly Mama parlayed a career as a beauty queen into being a part time politician and a full time millionaire, Miss Palin may have her future mapped out.

Sadly, she's no where near as hot as her Mom but who cares. Being famous for being famous is sexy enough for Americans.

Let's face it my liberal friends, if Sarah and Bristol had just aborted their lovely children they'd be the poster girls for the NOW movement...When I see these baseless attacks on people they don't remotely know...the word hypocrites comes to mind...hey "friends", if the shoe fits, wear it...

Thanks Sen. John McCain. If it weren't because of you, nobody would ever know for my talents.

Sadly Bristol appears to be pregnant again. That was one rounded bump in her middle. Did she marry the father of her first child?

Did anyone besides me wonder about Ms. Palin's partners excessive affection towards her? He was feeling her up at every single opportunity.
I will be glad when they vote her off. She was incapable of responding to the interviewer with any level of intelligence. Her dancing was mediocre but better than some.
