The Lyrics

Part of my Pop Danthology 2013 self-challenge. Dude watches a horrible, horrible play. Who's to blame?
Such tripe they're stagi-in', dialogue's so cru-ude
Why should I stay for long?
The premise is so du-umb, the hero's in the wro-ong
This is shit, that's a fact
I'm, like, wow, so trite, pretty lame
And I'm tryin' not to-o sleep
But I know that I'll fail
Cause this is one stupid play

Who was the pla-aywright? That I'd like to know
Cause each li-ine is makin' my brain leak so
Which twit's the pla-aywright? This is such a load
Half these li-ines are unintentiona-al jokes
Ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

The plot is aimle-ess, no real directio-ion
I can find, so pitiful
The costumes are so shi-ite, slap-dash, badly thought ou-out
Someone please end it now
Ev'ry single part's cast wrong, though
Who could play this believably?
This is made o-of ass
Better fanfi-ics I could read

So who's the pla-aywright? That I wanna know
Cause I fi-ind his work here completely blows
Which fool's the pla-aywright? This is a big load
Of bad li-ines, poorer line reads and du-umb jokes
Ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Why can't you tell it's all wrong?
Are you just numb to bullshi-it e-exposure? Wai-ait, sta-art ove-er
It's Shakespeare? Now, that's a lark
I thought that he was the to-ops, tha-at's what I thou-ought, I-I'm at a lo-oss

Can't be the pla-aywright, cause this whole thing blows
Should know, I-I've studied him all my life, bro
He's not the pla-aywright, has to be a joke
The whole li-ineup on stage plain sucks, you-ou know
Might be the pla-aywri-ight, don't matter much, no
It's clear, ri-ight, the director's at fault, so
The proper pla-aywright's absolved of this joke
I'm not hi-idin' my denial, he-ell no
Ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh, ooh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-whoa-oh (yeah), oh-whoa-oh (yeah), oh-whoa-oh (yeah), oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (yeah)
Oh-whoa-oh (yeah-eah), oh-whoa-oh (yeah-eah), oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
