The Lyrics

This long-awaited parody of Bob Seger's classic is an ode to the long-running NBC sitcom, "Night Court," which ran from January 1984-1992. It's sung by Bull (Played by Richard Moll).
My friends like calling me Bull
Got the best job in town
I hear Harry's gavel pound
We have had other bailiffs, but they both died
The bad guys pay a fifty-dollar fine
We're in court at night

Harry is the youngest judge ever appointed
Was 33, so don't be disappointed
Workin' on magic tricks that are very warped

Workin' at the Night Court
Everybody's mind in this place is warped
Workin' at the Night Court during suppertime
When you eat, suppertime

I won't forget the time that Dan and
Roz were stuck in the elevator with sumo
wrestlers during the tremors and storms
And then the time
That Jackson impersonator came by
And Judge Harry, he told the guy to "Beat It"
Then once they thought Christine
Had tragically died
But she's very alive

Workin' at the Night Court
We are crazier than old Martin Short
Workin' at the Night Court during suppertime
(Yeah suppertime, suppertime)

There's the judge, Harry [Stone]
Christine Sullivan
And Dan Fielding and Mac Robinson
Bailiffs and yours truly

(Slower tempo, more dramatic)
Then Selma had died, and then so did Florence
Then we got another bailiff
When we all said goodbye in 1992
Ain't it funny at the Night Court
Then aliens came to abduct me! How warped!
Strange at the Night Court
I want a reunion

(The lyric, "Night Court," is sung by the background singers, with Bull Shannon supplying ad-libs)

Chris - This was a favorite sitcom of mine. Fine job on a great Bob Seger song and a good accurate description of episodes on this show. They just don't seem to be making these kinds of great sitcoms anymore. Thanks for reminding me of something that used to make me laugh and still will if I can find it on syndicated reruns.
