Kidz Bop's Hilariously Wholesome Lyric Changes To Lil Nas X's 'Montero' Have The Internet LOLing

Music star Lil Nas X's work is some of the most audacious, ear-wormy stuff out there nowadays... but it's not exactly what you'd call "family-friendly."

Enter Kidz Bop, the long-running series of popular music covers "for and by kids," who just dropped their version of Lil Nas X's hit "Montero."

But how do you even make a song as, um, adult as "Montero" kid-friendly?

Well Kidz Bop certainly tried.

The results have the internet screaming with laughter.

Hear the revised tune below.

Montero (Call Me By Your Name) youtu.be

Kidz Bop's take on "Montero" has been hotly anticipated by people eager to see how on Earth they would tackle a song about cocaine and gay sex—including Lil Nas X himself who had a good laugh on Twitter about Kidz Bop's announcement of the song earlier this month.

But no one was prepared for how hilarious the finished product would be.

Not even their overhaul of Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda"—hilariously rewritten to be about actual snakes—holds a candle to it.

Take for instance, Lil Nas X's fairly graphic verse:

"I wanna sell what you're buying / I wanna feel on yo' ass in Hawaii / I want that jet lag from f*cking and flying / Shoot a child in your mouth while I'm riding."

Where to even begin?

Well, if you're Kidz Bop, you just make it about having dinner on vacation.

Or something?

"I wanna sell what you're buyin' / I wanna lie on the beach in Hawaii / I want that jet lag from livin' and flyin' / Put a smile on your face while we're dining'."

Okay, sure...

Giphy

Hats off, Kidz Bop.

The Kidz Bop version is so deliciously ludicrous from start to finish that when Lil Nas X himself posted about it on Twitter, he just posted a screenshot of the lyrics with no comment whatsoever.


There's not really much else to say, is there.

Of course, Twitter being Twitter, they found the words and people roasted Kidz Bop to a hilarious crisp.











The Kidz Bop "Montero" fun doesn't stop here.

There's also a music video coming soon as well.

It'll be interesting to see their take on that whole having-gay-sex-with-Satan part.
