The Lyrics

Part of my Pop Danthology 2013 self-challenge. There are many reasons a film can suck. Bad acting, bad direction, bad writing...editing's something that's often overlooked. Not by this guy, though!
This film I'm watchin' is so hard to follow (ooh-ooh-ooh)
It's not the premise that's hard to swallow, well (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Ain't a lie-ie, that's sti-ill true
It's all kinds of nonsense
The ri-ight proble-em, dude
Is ev'ry cut is la-ame

This movie has been cut so-o choppy
It leaps around so much fro-om frame to frame
So hard to keep the plot strai-aight when
Each scene doesn't get to play
In any proper wa-a-ay
Poor movie has been cut so-o choppy
And not in a delib'ra-ate kinda way
There's "settin' up unease" a-and then
There's just makin' such a waste
Of all the cash I pai-ai-aid

Some shots feel dragged out into tomorrow (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Others are way too short, hard to follow, yeah (ooh-ooh-ooh)
And the fla-ashbacks su-uck, too
They're way too disjointed
Real ba-ad soundtra-ack cues
So on the nose, it's la-ame

This movie here's been cut so-o choppy
Edited by a dog qui-uite poorly trained
Why was there five jump cuts ri-ight there?
Sucks the tension all away
Plain sucks it down the drai-ai-ain
Damn movie here's been cut so-o choppy
Not like it had the greate-est startin' place
It would've been bland, to be-e fair
But now all I feel is pain
I've got a big heada-a-ache

Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, oh, oh

I would make my own cu-ut, wouldn't know where to sta-art
The issues bleed into ev'ry single frame, it's nuts
"It could be worse" it's true-ue, I've seen the sequel, du-ude
And what I've complained 'bout is way, way worse, not a lie, yeah

This stupid film's been cut so-o choppy
So many crucial plot beats unexplained
What's on the editin' roo-oom floor
Could be it's own film, insane
Still wouldn't be that grea-ea-eat
This bloody film's been cut so-o choppy
Near ev'ry damn line the characters say
Might as well be gibb'rish, goo-ood Lord
Ev'ry scene is out of place
Good actors gone to wa-a-aste

Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Not so bad, it's great (oh-oh-oh-oh)
It's crap, that's all I'll sa-a-ay, yeah-eah (oh, oh, oh)

I know I don't notice bad editing. Maybe that's because I never studied film, who knows.
