Facebook is a stupid idiot (SONG)

David Ippolito, better known to countless tourists and New Yorkers as That Guitar Man from Central Park, has recently debuted “The Facebook Song“. In his new song, which is subtitled “What the f%#k is FarmVille!?“, the NYC-based singer-songwriter brings up all the mundane things that people tend to share on the social network, only to conclude with the very catchy chorus that “Facebook is a stupid idiot

You can hang out with David Ippolito and hear The Facebook Song live on Saturdays starting around 12:30 until dusk at The Hill in Central Park (near the lake above Strawberry Fields, between 73rd and 74th Street). In addition to his own songs ─be sure to check out the one about Internet dating as well─ he also sings covers by Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Paul Simon, Jason Mraz and others. Just keep an eye on That Guitar Man’s website or FB page ─yes, he does have one─ for gigs and more videos.

Here’s the video of “The Facebook Song” as performed for the first time, at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theater in New York City.


I saw my ex on Facebook…
But I wanted to do what’s best.
Show her there are no hard feelings so
I sent her a “friend request”.
But now her photo pops in that random 6
And I just think it’s mean…
There she is with a new guy makin’ out
on my computer screen!

Facebook is a stupid idiot! (x3)

Jane said you gotta be on Facebook
to connect in the digital age.
So like everyone else… and their pets
I got my face a Facebook page.
Now the learning curve was a bitch at first.
I didn’t know ’til I got burned
that what I wrote on my wall could be seen by all.
That’s just the first thing that I learned.

Facebook is a stupid idiot! (x2)

It’s the place for worthless information
like an insane almanac.
Where women post minutiae
and men write stupid comments back.
Where women can vent about mundane events
and inundate the Internet.
And where clueless men “friend” women
who they’ve never even met.

Facebook is a stupid idiot
’cause I could stand to miss
the fact that Tanya thinks all her friends are “AWESOME”
and for some reason Pete “likes this”.
And Rita reports that the trucks are loud
but she still loves this city. It proves that…

Facebook is a stupid idiot.

Now some woman sent me flowers…
‘though I don’t even know her name.
I stayed home that day for hours
but no flowers ever came.
Then she started sending hugs and drinks. Of course…
all of it completely fake.
Then she hit me with a “virtual pillow”
How much shit can one man take?

Facebook is a stupid idiot
’cause I don’t need to read
all the everyday hapless crap out there
then ZAP! It’s a “News Feed”.
Like: Jenny just made Ben’s favorite stew
and gave some to their kitty. It proves that…
Facebook is a stupid idiot.

Now some guy with a mind for trivia
wants to know how mine compares to his.
But I’m gonna buy a gun if he sends one more
f#%king “movie quiz.”
And Liza says she needs fertilizer
’cause her FarmVille crops are small.
And Missy says she’s just so damn busy today…
But had time to write that on my wall!

Facebook is a stupid idiot.
There’s nothing more to say.
How else would I know that Heather
thinks that “flip-flop weather”
is finally here to stay!
And what did we do before we knew
that Sue just took a nap.
Facebook is a stupid idiot.
