The Lyrics

Match maker, Match maker,
You're out of work
Nobody needs
Matches, you jerk..
Match maker, Match maker,
Flame game is lame,
Go be a grocery clerk..

Match maker, Match maker,
Your job is nil
Sulphur and wood,
An old fashioned pill
Match maker, Match maker,
Make something else,
Or else, just retire, chill...

Butanes flicker fireplaces
Bics and Bronsons ignite all the smokes
Match fact'ries are dire places,
Like a dusty old hat,
You're just good for jokes..

Match maker, Match maker,
You, we must bump
"Unfired, you are!"
Says Donald Trump
Match maker, Match maker,
Shut down and latch..
Progress blew out your match

Progress blew out your match

If I were a rich man ... I'd give you three fives. But with the economy the way it is, I can't spare 'em. Sorry

It's nice reading a parody I don't have to sulfur through.

Pretty good, match makers never get anything from me because I don't even keep matches OR lighters around the house. 5s.

Good job. O.C. Barber is probably turning in his grave. Now how about one for shoe repair shops? ;)
