Here is Stephen Colbert suggesting some replacements for the chorus — Cee Lo goes with “Fox News” over “Beef Stew”. Hey, both those are certainly better than “Forget You.”
Here are the revised lyrics, compliments of Colbert’s writing staff: “Saw you driving ’round town with the girl I love on Fox News / Didn’t see one politician that wasn’t corrupt on the Fox News, and I get the blues / The poor get poorer, the rich get richer / Ain’t that some shit / I’m having pains in my chest because I’m so stressed over Fox News.”
And here’s Cee Lo’s actual performance of the song, uncensored and glorious. Ah, cable TV!

|Cee Lo Green – F**k You|
Two notes: first, how happy happy does Cee Lo look to finally be able to perform his song on TV the way it was meant to be heard? And secondly, let’s give it up to Mr. Green for having a backing band entirely made up of ladies.
