The Lyrics

Tension on the set of upcoming blockbuster as lead actor is revealed to be a complete douchenozzle!
I can't believe that that guy's here, geez
I'm kinda pissed as you can see
"Big names will cheat butts into seats"
I know that but the problem: so does he
Massive ego, always growin'
As long as he stays inside the spotlight
And I will leave if he's not stoppin'
Askin' for wine after each line

Shouldn't have the leadin' part, not right
'Cause he's a total knob, nose held high
Whenever he's on set, I want to leg it, hide
Should lose the leadin' part or you'll find
You'll lose your mind

Always rewritin' ev'ry damn scene
To make him look right and flawless, geez
Not an adapted script, at least
No fans to get super peeved
On the other hand, that sucks 'cause
There's no author here to keep him in line
My character's supposed to love his
But I can't hide what's in my eyes

Shouldn't have the leadin' part, not right (not right, not right, not right)
Why is he yellin' "Cut!" all the time (the time, the time, the time)?
Did he swap the director with himself? Oh my
Change out the leadin' part, hate this guy

I can't take this, he wants the whole set changed
Says the genre isn't his type
I gotta ask then: why
The hell did your ass sign
Onto the film then? Why?

Why'd you take the leadin' part? Say why (say why, say why, say why)
Why not take parts you want? Then you'd shine (you'd shine, you'd shine, you'd shine)
And you would get no press 'bout what a dick you're like
Some other leadin' part, say goodbye

I don't want the leadin' part, don't try

Will he resign? Will everyone fall into line? Or will we find his corpse dissolved in quicklime? I don't know if that's a thing, I just needed the rhyme.
