Get Off The Stage
|Name||Get Off The Stage|
It is suggested that Stephen Street may have made unused music for the lyrics as early as 1988.
There is an alternate version (3:33) of this track on the Bona Drag reference CD-R which has yet to leak.
Oh, you silly old man You silly old man You're making a fool of yourself So get off the stage
You silly old man In your misguided trousers With your mascara and your Fender guitar And you think you can arouse us?
But the song that you just sang It sounds exactly like the last one And the next one I bet you it will sound Like this one
Downstage, and offstage Don't you feel all run in? And do you wonder when they will take it away? This is your final fling
But then applause ran high But for the patience of the ones behind you As a verse drags on like a month drags on It's very short, but it seems very long
And the song that you just sang It sounds exactly like the last one And the next one I bet you it will sound Like this one
So, get off the stage Oh, get off the stage And when we get down off of the stage Please stay off the stage - ALL DAY!
Get off the stage Oh, get off the stage And when we've had our money back Then I'd like your back in plaster
Oh, I know that you say How age has no meaning Oh, but here is your audience now And they're screaming:
"Get off the stage" Oh, get off the stage Because I've given you enough of my time And the money that wasn't even mine Have you seen yourself recently?
Oh, get off the stage Oh, get off the stage For whom, oh... For whom, oh... For whom, oh... For whom, oh...
Get off the stage Get off the stage Get off the stage
For whom the bell tolls
