The Lyrics

Matilda is a classic 1996 family film starring Mara Wilson, Danny DeVito, and Rhea Perlman. I tried to throw in as many DeVito references as I could. In Space Jam, he plays the boss alien who owns the team playing against the Looney Tunes; he also mistakes Bill Murray for Dan Ayrkoyd.
Telekinetic girl, her dad
Last name Devito, first name Dan
He scammed used cars, 'twas quite illegal
Tells Matilda, "Shut your peephole"
Nice mother? Not much more

Spike his tonic, ruin hair
School, you're never going there
DeVito has the cruelest lines
He'll make you laugh in anything (Twins)

Played basketball with Looney Tunes
Bill Murray is not Elwood Blues
In Philedelphia, sun stays up
Penguin, once upon a time
Ran for Mayor while scheming
But hindsight changed its meaning

Got Arnold pregnant, they're twins too
It's out of context, don't say "Eeew"
A locomotive, threw his mom from
Works at Sunshine Cab Comp'ny
IMDb for more
Way, way more

I was also thinking of doing something about the movie “Matilda” but it’s been so long since I’ve seen that movie. Switching from the movie to Danny DeVito was a bit jarring and I wish you kept it about one or the other but overall it was very good

Surprised you didn't reference the role that made him a star, Louie DePalma on Taxi! But good job, CB! Thanks for playing OWN, hope you can join in next week!

Agrimorfee = Isn’t the line about the Sunshine Cab Company a reference to “Taxi”?

What was the name of the movie where his wife was kidnapped but he didn't want her back? I don't remember who played the wife, some large-haired woman methinks.

Nice, but no mention of limoncello! I loved him in "Wise Guys" with Joe Piscopo too! 555!
