The Lyrics

"This new cartoon should be wacky! Crazy! Zany, even!" "I was afraid of that..."
"Zany"? That's a joke, right?
Man, this meetin' took a nosedive
Your demands were, at first, fine
But I see a sharp decline
"Zany"? I just feel like
That's a buzzword that needs to die
Plain sounds dumb, no need to lie
When a show aims to prove that it's such, way too hard, it'll try

"Zany"? That's a joke, right?
Hoped my hearin' failed me that time
You're a prat, you heard me right
Instantly, you roll your eyes
"Zany's what the kids like
We've done research, heard of that, right?"
Not as dumb as you would like
So I know that what you want won't work, kids need logic, that's right

"Zany"? That's a joke, right?
I won't heed it, standards are high
Won't write crap, I'd rather find
New work, please, don't be this blind
"Zany" dumbs down quick-like
Any message that I dare write
Since that's what I'm here for, try
And find folks who will do what you want and win Emmys with shite

"Zany"? That's a joke, right?
Hope you're kiddin', said hopes aren't high
"Zany"? I just feel like
That's so dumb, my brain might fry

"Zany"? That's a joke, right?
There's no need to be that shite
"Zany"? I just feel like
Think I've told you at least nine times

"Zany"? That's a joke, right?
I'm still reelin' from that one line

"TV writers, they often use "acid" as a kind of a shorthand for "wacky" — they'll say something like "This sitcom, it'll be like Terry And June ON ACID! Imagine what that'll be like!" Yeah, I can imagine what that'll be like — that'll be Terry examining the floral pattern on a plate for four days..." - Bill Bailey
