Sing It For the World: Will 'Glee' do My Chemical Romance at Regionals?

rachel-finn-glee.jpgOn Tuesday's episode of "Glee," Rachel ( Lea Michele) and Finn ( Cory Monteith) led the New Directions gang in a flannel-covered, rousing rendition of My Chemical Romance's empowering anthem "Sing."

It's definitely a powerful song, but does it pack the punch needed to win Regionals? Not so much. Still, the lyrics are definitely appropriate for our wily band of underdogs who will undoubtedly face some formidable competition when they hit that Regionals stage.

Check out the original version in the video below -- we have to confess, we kind of like the New Directions cover better. (Sorry, MCR fans... theirs is rad, too.) It's an unexpected choice for our Glee clubbers... and we've got our doubts as to whether we'll hear it again, because Rachel is on a crusade to add an original song to their repertoire, and what Rachel wants, Rachel usually gets.



Sing it out,
Boy, you've got to see what tomorrow brings.
Sing it out,
Girl, you've got to be what tomorrow needs.
For every time
That they want to count you out,
And use your voice
Every single time you open up your mouth
Sing it for the boys, sing it for the girls
Every time you that you lose it sing it for the world
Sing it from the heart
Sing it till you're nuts
Sing it out for the words that'll hate your guts
Sing it for the death, Sing it for the blood
Sing about everyone that you left behind
Sing it for the world, Sing it for the world
Sing it out, boy they're gonna sell what tomorrow means
Sing it out girl, with all the kill what tomorrow brings
You've got to
Make a choice,
If the music drowns you out.

And raise your voice,
Every single time they try and shut your mouth.
Sing it for the boys, sing it for the girls
Every time you that you lose it sing it for the world
Sing it from the heart
Sing it till you're nuts
Sing it out for the words that'll hate your guts
Sing it for the death
Sing it for the blood
Sing about everyone that you left behind
Sing it for the world
Sing it for the world
Cleaned up corporation,
Park rats dying in the
Process
Children that can talk about it
Living on the
Railways
Creeping, moving sideways
Sell it till your last days
Buy yourself the motivation!
Should've reckoned nothing
Nothing 'bout a dance
Burning down the white tree
I am not the singer that you wanted,
But a dancer,
I refuse to answer
Talk about the past, son,
Rolling for the ones who want to get away
Keep running!
Sing it for the boys, sing it for the girls
Every time you that you lose it sing it for the world
Sing it from the heart
Sing it till you're nuts
Sing it out for the words that'll hate your guts
Sing it for the death
Sing it for the blood
Sing about everyone that you left behind
Sing it for the world
Sing it for the world
You've got to sing what tomorrow brings!
