The Lyrics

Well, if I ever try my hand at producing plays--with TT's 'backing'--it might go something like this:


Should the Post and Times
Rant “Each number stank!”
Op’ning night of my ‘Shaming of The ShrEwes'
No I won’t -- throw a fit
O’re “This mu-sical’s $hit!”:
For so long -- I’ve been panned,
Panned widely

So HARSHly, ARCHly panned -- wide-ly
D’Oh, slammed -- snidely
So damned -- Damned snidely,
Panned widely

No I don’t read reviews:
“‘ShrEwes’ em-ptied the pews!”
Nor “Abhorrent with a mordant melody!”
I don’t blame -- Diva shrEwes
Tommy T -- or the Jews
All along -- I’ve been panned,
Panned widely

But DAR-lin’ ‘KU Klux Cannes’, SHALL be
French hit -- zshu’ll see!
Not panned, no! -- Fan’d grandly,
Cannes’d grandly!

DAR-lin’, NEXT play’s ‘One Hand Me’
Lead man’s -- Pee Wee!
Show hands now -- ‘One Hand Me’ --
Fan’d glandly!

Whenever I’m in trouble I’ve just planned sly-ly
So han-di-ly
Thee’hat-tricks -- pay grand-ly,
Can’t stand me?!

TJC - Congratulations. You now own 110% of the profits from "The Prod-ewe-cers". Next! (Do I get the Gene Wilder/Matthew Broderick role?). I'll back it...with favorable reviews. Nice job. ;D
