The Lyrics

Part of my "World Go Boom" self-challenge. Long-winded speeches that are dull as ditch-water and last for what seems like months: this is how the audience feels
I'm...bored
Yeah
Yeah
Audience is sleeping
Yeah!

Enough already, this show drags on
Three nights and still counting, it's gone too long
Ev'ry now and then I wonder, should I succumb to slumber
Or just throw things at this guy's butt
This show drags on

Enough already, this show drags on
Just cut to the chase now, it's been too long
And no longer do I wonder, if someone can get dumber
From listening to a numbnut
This show drags on

Have you ever waited so long that you could swear your ass
Was stuck to the seat? I have
This is a painful wait, I think I feel my soul
Dying, my brain will go crack
Wish I had some or some weed
Then the time would just fly past
I'd have something to look at
A nice trip would be the best
Wouldn't have to hear this smeg, droning on like a bee's ass
I want something to elate me
This is drivin' me crazy
I can't play games upon my phone, it lacks the birds so angry
Wish that I was home, this man could bore for his country
Goes on and on, this sure sucks, I wish that he would clam up
O-M-G he's bland, dry as sand, what a brains trust
Was not expecting stand-up, but at least raise your voice up!

Enough already, this show drags on
Five nights and still counting, it's gone too long
Ev'ry now and then I wonder, should I succumb to slumber
Or just pelt his head with popcorn
This show drags on

Enough already, this show drags on
Just cut to the chase now, it's been too long
And no longer do I wonder, if someone can be blander
Than Ben Stein, my patience is worn
This show drags on

All this hot air makes the people sleep here
All this dead air makes me squirm in my chair
Man, this dead air is like a Vogon poet
Gotta remember, don't panic in here
Lots of syllables, he ain't saying jack
All this hot air is just drivin' me spare
I do not kid, I'd rather play sudoku
Sick of list'nin' to this prat
For what feels like years
Yeah, yeah, I'm really bored
Listening feels like a chore
Glassy eyes, stomach churns
Wish I ate lunch before
I would prefer anything, even read about wars
Will he ever wrap up, oy, why'd I even come here for?
Could've read a report 'bout this at my home fort
Feels like he is stallin', drawing out his speech more
I wish that I could deploy a hitman to destroy
The sound system with lots of guns
Cause carnage I can enjoy

Enough already, this show drags on
Eight nights and still counting, it's gone too long
Ev'ry now and then I wonder, should I succumb to slumber
Or throw things at his fat gut
This show drags on

Enough already, this show drags on
Just cut to the chase now, it's been too long
And no longer do I wonder, if someone can be duller
He's like Kevin freakin' Costner
This show drags on

All this pap I've had to sit through
I think he's winding up soon
My face it grins with glee when he fin'lly shuts up and goes
I clap and I laugh
Suddenly I'm not tired
No longer have to sit down
If this crap lasted longer
He'd have been set on fire
Who's that over there?
Someone coming to the mike and he looks as dull as pears
It looks like we ain't leavin' nobody goin' home
It's another fucking speaker, this show keeps dragging on!

Enough already, this show drags on
Twelve nights and still counting, it's gone too long
Ev'ry now and then I wonder, should I succumb to slumber
Or just lead the crowd in riots
This show drags on

Enough already, this show drags on
Just cut to the chase now, it's been too long
And no longer do I wonder, if someone can be madder
Than me right now, cause I doubt it
This show drags on
I have not actually watched a movie with Costner in it (as far as I know, anyway), but I've seen enough clips of his "acting" that I feel I can get away with the jab at him in the second chorus.

I've slept through a few speeches like that.

Nice job on a tough song. I'm sure Mr. Costner would take your jab in stride (he does have some long movies...)

(SOTM) As the self-declared "Rap Guy", I've been wanting to do this one for a while now, but you beat me to it. Good job on one of my current favorite OS! One thing is certain, your parodies don't drag on at all... EVER!

During every presidential debate... Or whenever my favorite shows are turned off to make way for some political mumbo-jumbo I feel this way. Totally drags on and on and on and on. Thankfully your parody didn't drag on.

Nice work here! Never heard the OS, but I was a little disgusted that it stole the hook from "Float On" by Modest Mouse. Other than that, you did a great job with this one

SOTM...this OS always makes me happy...and this parody made me laugh. I've totally felt this way!! Favorite line: "...it lacks the birds so angry" LOL!
