The Lyrics

I won't "Othello" view--
I'm philistine.
I wretch at opera--makes me spew.
I ain't buyin
What they're "eye-tyin'."

You know, I can't stand it,
It's so orotund.
Even the soprani
With voices so high are so rotund.

I won't "Otello" view--
I'm philistine,
A swine.

I won't view
Either two.
Verdi's blew,
Giaccho's too. Like a cow
The mezzo's blare;
Tenors remind me
Of a sick sow

Won't hear it!

I won't "Otello" view--
For Bard, I pine.
