The Lyrics

Music/lyrics by Ron Pember.
What a fright
Matinee night
Oh boy, you lot really messed up
Late to start
Stuffed up your parts
It wasn't worth getting dressed up

Sunday you screwed about
Monday night you sang too loud
Tuesday night was terrible, close to scandalous
(What a farce)
Wednesday was quite poor
Thursday night I did abhor
Friday night I wanted to drop an anvil on yas

Not so bright
Matinee night
Horrible acting and posture
How I sighed
Swallowed my pride
I wondered why I had cast ya

Of one thing I am quite sure
Won't be casting you no more
Every scene out of the script was vandalised
Patrons in every row
All started retchin' from the show
Oh, half our expenses went on am-bu-lan-ces

What a sight
Matinee night
Everyone says for certain
You sucked ass
All of the cast
Best thing on stage was the curtain!

DKTOS, but I can get behind a good disgruntled and angry rant. Excellent rhyme scheme also. Now I wanna get hold of the original just to see how well 'scandalous' matches up with 'anvil on yas'.

I've thoroughly Googled for the original lyrics and they aint anywhere. Those lines are 'Tuesday night, we never know how to handle ya' and 'Friday night could never hold a candle to ya'. Thanks for the visit!

yes, was it one of those ACME anvils that always follows you around with exocet precision and then pushes you into the earth? - or am I taking it too literally - good to get things out of your system, Luke - 555
