The Beatles Weigh In On Brokeback Mountain

One of my favorite Beatles songs is "Get Back," from the album "Let It Be" (also my favorite Beatles album). If Lennon & McCartney had been asked to write a song for Brokeback Mountain, perhaps the lyrics would have been different:

Brokeback

Ennis was a man who claimed that “I’m no homo,”
But we knew it wouldn't last.
Ennis left his home to go up to Wyoming,
where perversion came to pass.
Brokeback, Brokeback,
Brokeback Mountain’s where you belong.
Brokeback, Brokeback,
Brokeback Mountain’s where you belong.
Cowboy no-no! Don‘t go!
Brokeback, Brokeback,
Brokeback Mountain’s where you belong.
Brokeback, Brokeback,
Brokeback Mountain’s where you belong.
Gay rodeo.

Gyllenhall’s Jack Twist, he thought he was a woman,
but he was another man.
Hot Anne Hathaway would love to give it to him,
'stead, he’ll take it in the can.
Brokeback, Brokeback,
Brokeback Mountain’s where you belong.
Brokeback, Brokeback,
Brokeback Mountain’s where you belong.
Lip smackin' fellas. Wrong zone!
Brokeback, Brokeback,
Brokeback Mountain’s where you belong.
Brokeback, Brokeback,
Brokeback Mountain’s where you belong.
Are you forgetting?
Anne Hathaway's waiting for you.
Wearing her high-heel shoes,
And her low-neck sweater.
Dump her for Heath Ledger?
Brokeback, Brokeback,
Brokeback Mountain’s where you belong.

I think you should give Ennis a break. I'm sure he didn't start off gay: he was probably sucked into it.

When are you guys going to give the Brokeback Mountain stuff a break and get back to slamming Jimmy Carter ?

Curious that you rediculous loosers rep on a gay movie when Michele Bachmann hasn't specefically denounced it.

Yeah, enough of these gratuitous gay sex jokes. Get back to slamming Jimmy Carter. Pound him good. Make him squeal like a pig.
