Yusho Race (A Poker Face Parody)

As some of you may recall, I have not had the best luck when it comes to the prediction series. Though I did win Natsu, I had previously lost Aki, Kyushu, and Hatsu. My Kyushu punishment was to transform a verse or two of a popular song and make it sumo based. Additionally, I had to sing said lyrics over the podcast. For those of you who tuned in, you know I went a little overboard and decided to transform the whole song instead. Below are the verses for Yusho Race! (A Poker Face Parody)

Original Song is Poker Face by Lady Gaga.

Next time you Karaoke to Poker Face just remember… Matta Matta!

I wanna hold’em ’till the gyoji takes is place
Star’em, snare’em, flare’em hit that tachiai with grace (I love it)
Honbasho matches, badass rikishi from the start
But fall behind your betters as your yusho falls apart

Oh noooo Oh nooo Oh noooo oh nooooooo
Don’t have the heart, bad move from the start
Oh noooo Oh nooo Oh noooo oh nooooooo
Don’t have the heart, bad move from the start

Can’t get by, can’t reach my, no I fall in the yusho race
He’s not a badass rikishi
Can’t get by, can’t reach my, no I fall in the yusho race
He’s not a badass rikishi

Yu yu yu yusho race, yu yu yusho race
Matta Matta
Yu yu yu yusho race, yu yu yusho race
Matta Matta

I hit the clay with an Okurinage
Okuridashi’s lot more fun without me (don’t love it)
Hatakikome use the shoulder, back, and arm
But Fumidashi’s got to be the worst move of the art

Oh noooo Oh nooo Oh noooo oh nooooooo
Don’t have the heart, bad move from the start
Oh noooo Oh nooo Oh noooo oh nooooooo
Don’t have the heart, bad move from the start

Can’t get by, can’t reach my, no I fall in the yusho race
He’s not a badass rikishi
Can’t get by, can’t reach my, no I fall in the yusho race
He’s not a badass rikishi

Yu yu yu yusho race, yu yu yusho race
Matta Matta
Yu yu yu yusho race, yu yu yusho race
Matta Matta

Can’t do Izori or Tottari
Sabaori or Ashitori
Got no lovin, so I’m bummin
I keep trying, won’t be lyin, showin sick skills at this rhyming
But that basho, is the hot show
Grab your chusin and don’t be pushin
Soldout shows be watching dohyos
Rankin’ Makuuchi or the Juryos

Can’t get by, can’t reach my, no I fall in the yusho race
He’s not a badass rikishi
Can’t get by, can’t reach my, no I fall in the yusho race
He’s not a badass rikishi
Can’t get by, can’t reach my, no I fall in the yusho race
He’s not a badass rikishi
Can’t get by, can’t reach my, no I fall in the yusho race
He’s not a badass rikishi
Can’t get by, can’t reach my, no I fall in the yusho race
He’s not a badass rikishi
Can’t get by, can’t reach my, no I fall in the yusho race
He’s not a badass rikishi

Yu yu yu yusho race, yu yu yusho race
Matta Matta
Yu yu yu yusho race, yu yu yusho race
Matta Matta
Yu yu yu yusho race, yu yu yusho race
Matta Matta
Yu yu yu yusho race, yu yu yusho race
Matta Matta
Yu yu yu yusho race, yu yu yusho race
