While the disputable main character of the show "How I Met Your Mother" is Ted Mosby (who has spent the last 9 years telling his children how he met their mother), the character of Barney Stinson (played by the incomparable Neil Patrick Harris) has always struck me as a mad genius, and I hoped to capture the genius in song.
Well, Hey Beautiful, I'm glad that you're here
Welcome to MacLaren's, grab a scotch or a beer
Maybe have a cigar, take a seat at the bar
I'll be over in that booth, that's where my friends are
There's Lilly the teacher, and Marshall the lawyer
Robin does the news just like Diane Sawyer
And that guy on the end, I'm his very best friend
So tell me...haaaaave ya met Ted?
But wait, who am I? Just an average guy
Settle down girl, don't give me crazy eyes
Abandoned at birth, in the Swiss Alps I was born
I was found and named Lorenzo Von Matterhorn
I love ballooning and puppies, I'm kind of a genius
Have my own company, and an unusually large penis
Oh, you say that this story isn't very convincin'?
It's one from my playbook, and my name is Barney Stinson
So call all your bros, pour some scotch in your cup
Grab your jacket and tie, it's time to suit up!
If your suit is black you shoes shouldn't be brown
Man, it's gonna be awesome, hi-fives all around!
I'm your wingman, you're my newest recruit
You're gonna get all the ladies when you're dressed in your suit
I hope you're insured, 'cause it's gonna get hairy
This'll be Legen...(wait for it)...dary!
I have a confession, I'm sure that you'll find
I'm always this awesome just all of the time
Weather out on the town and looking to shag
Or beating those teenagers at laser tag
When it comes to life, I have only one rule
Always strive for what's "possimpible"
Never play the fool, or act like you're tragic
And whenever possible, ladies love them some magic
Whenever I'm out, I'm dressed to impress
And I make sure my suits are always well pressed
No wrinkles or creases, I always look fly
I can even pull off a yellow duck-covered tie
83% of women think I played Boba Fett
Oh yes, that stat's true, you wanna Slap Bet?
When I see a hot girl, I know i"m gonna get her
Then move onto the next 'cause (Barney:)"New Is Always Better"
Now I know in the last verse I said I had a confession
I said what it was, no need for Intervention
Okay, I admit, my brother James, yeah he's gay
and I'm the inventor of "Not a Father's Day"
And despite all the kicks that Ralph Macchio did
We know Johnny Lawrence was the REAL Karate Kid!
Well, out of all women, one keeps my heart throbin'
Okay, I admit it, I'm in love with Robin
She's as awesome as I am, which makes us compatible
On the Hot/Crazy scale, she's above the diagonal
She knows the Bro Code, but is the best bro of all
And yes, Robin Sparkles, even out of the mall
So wedding suit up, hi-fives all around!
Robin Sherbotzy got me to settle down
I won't find a greater girl on this planet, yeah
Man, she's so awesome...even thoughshe's from Canada

"Suit Up!" (a song about Barney from How I Met Your Mother)
Contains an approximation (and *not* a direct sample) of "Hey Beautiful" by The Solids (the theme song of HIMYM)
Music by Ben Stahl & Ian Bonds
Lyrics by Ian Bonds
"Twenty Six and a Half: A Tribute to 'Weird Al' Yankovic", features 20 tracks from artists such as MC Frontalot, Shael Riley, the great Luke Ski, MC Lars, Marc with a C, Devo Spice and Insane Ian! Insane Ian
Technically my favorite track is "You Don't Know Jack (Plan B)", because it's just a great reimagining (Some Jerk with a Camera is now officially a reimagineer).
But a lot of the album is good, and the "Luke Ski Phase 2" stuff is also good, but different. Erin A Cobb
