The Lyrics

In honor of the current strike against film and TV producers by the Writers Guild of America (WGA), and against Broadway producers by the stagehands' union.
Yes! We have no scriptwriters!
We have no scriptwriters to write!
For Conan and David
And Jimmy and Jay’s vid,
Their stages went dark as the night!
We have a whole parcel of reruns!
Reality peons!
But yes! We have no scriptwriters!
We have no scriptwriters tonight!

Yes! We don’t have no stagehands!
We’ve no Broadway stagehands today!
There’s Off-Broadway downtown,
Off-Off-Broadway ‘round town,
Community theater for days!
We have the old grade school recital,
Street theater that’s vital,
But yes! We don’t have no stagehands!
We’ve no Broadway stagehands today!

Don't you have a "three strikes and you're out" policy over there?
