It's a Miracle
Amused to death

It's a miracle
We cower in our shelters
With our hands over our ears
Lloyd-Webber's awful stuff

Runs for years and years and years
An earthquake hits the theater
But the operetta lingers
Then the piano lid comes down

And breaks his f****** fingers
It's a miracle

Didn't Roger Waters accuse him of nicking Echoes for Phantom of the Opera.
