The Lyrics

I saw this movie at the theater. I hope I didn't give too much away. The song is sung by Steve Martin.
Watch out! I'm a lawyer named Peter
Internet, I meet a bizarre stranger
I'm an ordinary guy
Bringing Down the House

Internet mate is played by Queen Latifah
Has a secret that has now been uncovered
Joan Plowright is getting high
Bringing Down the House

Get your tickets, have a laugh: With this film, you'll ne'er be bored
The Laughter Station is here
Best comedy film by far! Maybe not 'cause I'm the star
Don't laugh, then you liar!

Plowright has a dog whose name is William
Shakespeare, the neighbor is Betty White
Ghetto-talkin' Eugene Levy
Bringing Down the House

I can't believe I have made a complete fool of myself
Not gonna give too much 'way
The People are funnier, but gotta dig that Eugene Lev--
Levy should join a gang

My house no longer ordinary
I meet an African-Ameri
She rocks! be sure to check out our movie,
Bringing Down the House

No Joan Plowright getting so high, then you have not seen nuthin' yet
One of the best films ever
But just wait till you see me acting all stupid and ghet
Don't laugh, then you liar!
