The Lyrics

Isn't it always awkward when a friend tries so hard to get you the perfect gift but they miss the mark? This dude knows that feel...
Sometimes I watch wrestlin' for a lark
But my friend tried to be nice and got me invitations
Oh, bless your heart, man, but you see
"Close position to the athletes" ain't my dream
Ah-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ah-ah-oh-oh, this is not that fun

Save me, I don't want to sit ringside
It's not a place where the fun lies
Cause all you see's one angle, man
Just one view instead of ten at once, that
Can only happen at home, cause
They don't let drones in, sure sucks

Never been a fan of watchin' live
Audio quality is shot and bland bits can't be skipped, please
Huge diff'rence between a couch yell
And havin' a crowd blow eardrums to hell
Ah-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ah-ah-oh-oh, ain't a lot of fun

Save me, I don't want to sit ringside (ooh-ooh-ooh)
But since you paid, can't leave now, I (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Don't wanna be ungrateful, man
Just want to not have to duck and dodge that (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Seventh chair and I hope some of (ooh-ooh-ooh)
That sweat they shed will come off

And you have to, and you have to know
What I thought was, what I thought was plain
When I watch the, when I watch the show
It's because I, it's because I think it's rather lame
When I hurl insults at the screen
I'm not that invested in the hack script, that's obscene, so

Save me, I don't want to sit ringside
Did you take me for a mark type?
It's a "The Room"-type sitch here, man
I mock dudes who grunt and groan in thongs and
Badly-done sells, such a joke, but
I can get why your mark's off
Oh, save me, I don't want to sit ringside (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Don't know if we're close to smark types (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Who also paid cash to riff, man
They love to pick apart ev'ry missed jab (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Story changes that they don't want (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Them and I could get along
Oh, save me, I don't want to sit ringside (ooh-ooh-ooh)
I feel surrounded by mark types (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Who, if I riff, will get pissed, man
I want to skip out soon if I could, but (ooh-ooh-ooh)
It would feel rude if I go, cause (ooh-ooh-ooh)
You tried so hard, can't write off that
Unless you too wanna go, cause (ooh-ooh-ooh)
I'll pay back twice, let's head off

I personally don't have this problem. I mostly worry about "I have no clue what to get them" and "what if they already have this thing"?
