The Lyrics

An ode to hate of my English Literature teacher
[reporters]
What she teach you?

[billy (as roxie)]
Boring poets

[reporters]
And your lessons?

[billy (as roxie)]
Very boring.

[reporters]
Where are your books?

[billy (as roxie)]
Six feet under.

[billy]
But he was granted one more start

[billy (as roxie)]
To learn about a boring part

[reporters]
When'd you get here?

[billy (as roxie)]
Year two thousand

[reporters]
How old were you?

[billy (as roxie)]
Don't remember

[reporters]
Then what happened?

[billy (as roxie)]
I met Miss Dunne
And she stole my hopes away
Convinced me to give up one day

[mary sunshine (spoken)]
A give up boy! A run-away lesson!
Oh, it's too terrible. You poor, poor dear.

[reporters]
Who's the Doctor

[billy (as roxie)]
My old teacher

[reporters]
Why'd you shoot him?

[billy (as roxie)]
I was leavin'.

[reporters]
Was he angry?

[billy (as roxie)]
Like a madman
Still I said, "sir, move along."

[billy]
He knew that he was doin' wrong.

[reporters]
Then describe it.

[billy (as roxie)]
She came toward me.

[reporters]
With a pistol?

[billy (as roxie)]
Penalty Points!

[reporters]
Did you fight her?

[billy (as roxie)]
Like a tiger.

[billy]
She had strength and he had none.

[billy (as roxie)]
And yet we both hated Miss Dunne
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes we both
Oh yes we both
Oh yes, we both hated
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne
Oh yes, we both hated Miss Dunne
Hate Miss Dunne

[billy and reporters]
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes they both
Oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both hated
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne
Oh yes, they both hated Miss Dunne
Hate Miss Dunne

[billy]
Understandable. Understandable
Yes, it's perfectly understandable
Comprehensible. Comprehensible
Not a bit reprehensible
It's so defensible!

[reporters]
How're you feeling?

[billy (as roxie)]
Very frightened

[reporters]
Are you sorry?

[roxie]
Are you kidding?

[reporters]
What's your statement?

[billy (as roxie)]
All I'd say is
Though my choo-choo jumped the track
I'd give my life to bring her back

[reporters]
And?

[billy (as roxie)]
Stay away from

[reporters]
What?

[billy (as roxie)]
English literature

[reporters]
And?

[billy (as roxie)]
And the teachers

[reporters]
What?

[billy (as roxie)]
Kill for fun

[reporters]
And what?

[billy (as roxie)]
That's the thougt that

[reporters]
Yeah

[billy (as roxie)]
Came upon me

[reporters]
When?

[billy (as roxie)]
When we both hated Miss Dunne!

[mary sunshine]
Understandable, understandable

[billy and mary sunshine]
Yes, it's perfectly understandable
Comprehensible, comprehensible
Not a bit reprehensible
It's so defensible!

[billy (spoken)]
Let me
Hear it!

[reporters]
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both hated
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne,
Miss Dunne
Oh yes, they both hated
Miss Dunne

[billy (spoken)]
A little louder!

[reporters]
Hate Miss Dunne.
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both hated
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne,

[billy (spoken)]
Now you got it!

[reporters]
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne
Oh yes. they both hated
Miss Dunne
Hate Miss Dunne

[billy and reporters]
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both hated
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne,
Oh yes, they both hated Miss Dunne

Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes, they both
Oh yes, they both
Oh yes, hated
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne,
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne,
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne,
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne!

[billy]
Both hated Miss...Dunne

[reporters]
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne,
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne,
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne,
Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne, Miss Dunne,
Both hated Miss Dunne.

Clever, but maybe too many similarities to the OS for my tastes. And, of course, the performance was from the musical Chicago, not the group Chicago.
