Lego Movie ‘Everything is Awesome’ Lyrics a Critique of Obama Administration

The-lego-movie-awesome

Have you seen “The Lego Movie” yet? If you haven’t you should. I don’t care if you have kids or not, if you value culture that contains a powerful message for liberty and individual freedom and creativity this is your movie. It maybe one of the most important movies about liberty ever because it is aimed at children and will be watched by them repeatedly.

The main theme song is called “Everything is Awesome’ and is the theme song to the lives of the oppressed legos who live in a highly controlled environment dominated by “President Business” who is really the evil “Lord Business” who rules as a tyrant and placates the people by using music, tv, and tacos, a modern version of bread and circuses.

This movie is not anti-capitalist. Far from it, if anything it is a critique of the current administration and their policies which destroy individuality and individual initiative. It is pro-liberty and encourages every individual to fight back against the oppression in their daily lives.

If you have any doubts, look at the lyrics to ‘Everything is Awesome’, pay special attention to the rap sections.

‘Everything is Awesome’

Everything is awesome
Everything is cool when we’re part of a team
Everything is awesome
When we’re living our dream

Everything is better
When we stick together
side by side
You and I
Gonna win
Forever
Let’s party forever

We’re the same
I’m like you
You’re like me
We’re all working in harmony

Everything is awesome
Everything is cool when we’re part of a team
Everything is awesome
When we’re living our dream

Rap:
3,2,1
Have you hear the news everyone’s talking
Life is good cause every things awesome
Lost my job, there’s a new opportunity
More free time for my awesome community
I feel more awesome than an awesome possum
Dip my body in chocolate frosting
Three years later wash off the frosting
Smellin like a blossom, everything is awesome
Stepped in mud, got new brown shoes
It’s awesome to win and it’s awesome to lose

Everything is better
When we stick together
Side by side
You and I
Gonna win
Forever
Let’s party forever

We’re the same
I’m like you
You’re like me
We’re all working in harmony

Everything is awesome
Everything is cool when we’re part of a team
Everything is awesome
When we’re living our dream

Rap:
Blue Skies, bouncy springs
We just named to awesome things
A Nobel Prize, a piece of string
You know what’s awesome? EVERYTHING
Dogs with fleas
Allergies
A book of Greek antiquities 
Brand new pants, a very old vest
Awesome items are the best
Trees, frogs, clogs they’re awesome!
Rocks, clocks and socks they’re awesome!
Figs and jigs and twigs that’s awesome!
Everything you see or think or say is awesome!

Everything is awesome
Everything is cool when we’re part of a team
Everything is awesome
When we’re living our dream

Remember, this is the song played to placate the people and convince them that their highly regulated and controlled lives are AWESOME! The action starts when our heros emerge to fight against this oppression.

  1. RE: The Lego Movie theme some being a critique of the Obama administration: I think you are reading to far into this. It’s a critique of totalitarian governments, and is in keeping with many dystopian stories/movies currently in vogue (e.g. The Hunger Games, Divergent). But to say that the Obama administration is trying to do that is a gross exaggeration, no matter how much you may dislike him.
