"Jeremy Lin that I used to know" Gotye parody song

Here is another parody of Gotye's hit song "Somebody I used to know." This time the parody is for Jeremy Lin leaving the New York Knicks to join the Houston Rockets.

The video is below as well as the lyrics to the parody.




Now and then I think of when we played together
Like when you shot a jumper right in Kobe's eye
Bought a ticket back to MSG
Activated my cable TV
But that was back before you tore your left meniscus

Why'd you have to sign so high
Said the Knicks would match it like you never even met James Dolan
I wish that he would pay you bro
Playing for the Rockets and they're still gonna suck
You should have played with Carmelo
Could've won a title and then maybe we'd retire your number
I guess that you just need that dough
And now you're just Jeremy that I used to know

When I think of all the players who screwed us over
Part of me believing it was always something that we'd done
Haven't seen the finals since Sprewell played
Could have had a ticker tape parade
Now you're an Asian in cowboy clothes
And we won't be crying for Jeremy that we used to know

Why'd you have to sign so high
Said the Knicks would match it like you never even met James Dolan
I wish that he would pay you bro
Playing for the Rockets and they're still gonna suck
You should have played with Carmelo
Could've won a title and then maybe we'd retire your number
I guess that you just need that dough
And now you're just Jeremy that I used to know
