The Lyrics

This one is to Frank Sinatra's recording of the song, rather than the original from Cole Porter's "Anything Goes".

In case anyone doesn't know (or is reading this years or days hence when it's no longer newsworthy), the illusionist David Blaine has just come out of the glass box in which he has been sitting, suspended above the Thames, for the last six weeks.

You might think that's pretty amazing... or you might think it's just pretty dumb - no prizes for guessing which side of that particular fence I'm sitting.
I take the piss out of Blaine
Forty-four days
In a box, if it pays
Is still a stupid thing to do
Blaine: I'll take the piss out of you

Some will say he's insane
I know where he's at
And it's much worse than that
For he bores me terrifically, too,
Blaine: I'll take the piss out of you

I took the piss every time I saw you,
Up there sitting pretty
I take the piss though it's clear to see,
You obviously love the publicity

I think he's out of his brain
This box-sitting stunt
Makes him look such a ... silly person
Days with really nothing to do,
So, I'll take the piss out of you

I'll take the piss every time I see you,
Unshaven, losing weight
I take the piss 'cause it's clear to me
It's guys like you I hate

I'll take the piss, David Blaine
You must get my gist, you so-called "illusionist"
But, the best that I can do
Is I'll take the piss
Yes, I'll take the piss
Blaine: I'll take the piss out of you

Perfecto Phil! My feelings exactly about the twirp!

Oooh, he sat in a box. Now, if he'd stayed up with that creepy levitation trick of his... Great job, Phil.

When John Cage wrote a "piano" piece consisting of 4 min 32 sec of absolute silence, Igor Stravinsky commented that he was "looking forward to works of greater length from this composer". Let's hope Blaine follows suit.

Didn't John Cage (or his estate, if he's dead) recently sue Mike Batt for including a 1m30s silence track on his latest album? Though maybe Blaine's next trick should be the same idea but at the bottom of the Mariannas Trench for 44 days...

I thought this was gonna be about that hose that ran from his box; anyway, great job as usual

Phil Alexander - great job!! Ohhh this is all too HILARIOUS! Bravo! And the comments posted here earlier are hilarious too! I love the one about Igor Stravinsky's comment - Igor must have a brilliant, satirical, understated sense of humor. And the one about Mike Batt's being sued for some silence on this album - sounds like people suing McDonald's for selling them exactly what they asked for! I like the idea of Blaine trying his box-trick at the bottom of the Marianas Trench...then nobody would have to watch (but they'd probably have underwater cameras watching his every twitch and wiggle).
After that, maybe he can repeat it in each of the following locations:
(1) In a wicker basket duct-taped to the outside of the International Space Station
(2) In Bill Clinton's bedroom
(3) On the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives
(4) In Siegfried and Roy's tiger-cage
(5) In a full-nelson applied by Arnold Schwarzenegger during the Governator's inauguration
