The Lyrics

When I watch movies - love to snack
Some jujubees or Krackerjacks
Or on an old favorite I'll rely
Salty and puffed to catch my eye..

Gimme popcorn an' I don't care
Gimme popcorn an' I don't care
Gimme popcorn an' I don't care
What movie's on up there...

Caught Warren Beatty in "Ishtar"
Prob'lly the worst flick ever saw
Script poorly written, not well planned
Two hours of just sand, sand, sand..
(but)

Gimme popcorn an' I don't care
Gimme popcorn an' I don't care
Gimme popcorn an' I don't care
What show is on up there...

Maria Carey had a dog
Put me to sleep just like a log
The film's name was, "Glitter" - what they mean?
There was no glitter on the screen,
(But)

Gimme popcorn an' I don't care
Gimme popcorn an' I don't care
Gimme popcorn an' I don't care
I'll munch and crunch away..

The worst I recall, "Catch 22"
Head scratcher - wond'rin what they do
Took strain to understand the plot
Since then been counselin' a lot..
(But)

Gimme popcorn an' I don't care
Gimme popcorn an' I don't care
Gimme popcorn an' I don't care
What flick is on up there..

Gimme popcorn an' I don't care
What flick..is..on..up..there..

Over-priced popcorn is what subsidizes movies, just as over-long, over-loud commercials pay for TV. It's too bad the popcorn is better than the film, but I imagine that happens a lot these days.

Be careful with that stuff, it can kill you! The popcorn, I mean. And the movies, and I don't mean the Aurora massacre.

Nice lightweight theme, easy to sing along with. I haven't seen the films you mentioned. Thanks for the tip-off. I'll add them to my long list of ones to avoid.

As Patrick mentioned, I've heard a lot of theaters survive on their snack franchises. That explains a lot.

Now if you'd been eating that popcorn at an X-rated theatre, then you could have had even more fun with the final line of the OS chorus.... ;D
