The Lyrics

A lot of people go into making a movie. Each and every one of them are capable of screwing up and this directors wants to nip his editor's potential foul-up right in the bud...
Makin' a film is incredibly hard
Castin' ev'ryone for the right pa-art
Lightin', sound design and all that ja-azz
Sure, you're the editor and I'm not, still
I'm the director of this film so I kno-ow

You can't cut the whole sequence
Can't let it go
You can't cut the whole sequence
It explains a lot about the universe
You can't leave the audience in the lu-urch

A criti-ical scene, ca-an't lie
Without it, the film will get trashed onli-ine
And you want it cut, and I ask why-y-y?
Is the exposition way too dense? Why-y-y
Don't cut it, the film won't make sense, no it wo-on't

Oh-oh-oh, you can't cut the whole sequence
Needs to stay whole
You can't cut the whole sequence
I do really hate to come across as terse
You're fixin' nothin', you're makin' it wo-orse

I'm not go-onna let thi-i-is sli-ide
Movies don't have any limit on ti-ime
So unless you can tell me out ri-ight
You're gonna get your ass fi-ired again (lose your job again, no more job again)
You've tried this crap for my-y last ten films or so-o

Oh-oh-oh, you can't cut the whole sequence
Won't drop this, no
You can't cut the whole sequence
I've watched it ten times myself, ev'rythin' works
That extra's wang's a minute's CG wo-ork
Oh-oh-oh, you can't cut the whole sequence
Lea-eave it in who-ole (just leave it whole)
You can't cut the whole sequence
Don't try it again

I'd list some examples of films where deleted scenes end up explaining vital details but I don't know any off the top of my head. I'm pretty sure it's happened, though, likely because of some executive assuming the audience doesn't care and/or is stupid.
