They Might Be Giants Disappointing Show Lyrics

[Mr. John Flansburgh]

“This, uh, song. This song is called other show. Other kind of show. It’s called ‘Disappointing Show.'”

Disappointing show

I saw it

Disappointing show

Man those guys blow

Disappointing show

Get your shit together

Disappointing show

Man those guys blow


“On the drums, Mr. Joseph Stalin on the drums, ladies and gentlemen, man.

Some other guy on the bass. Check him out. Whoa!

Slow down, slow down. Oh, on the guitar, yeah, that’s… play it, son. Yeah.”

Disappointing show, yeah

Man, those guys blow

I tried to sing along

Then it all went wrong

Disappointing show

Then the next song came on

That’s when it all went wrong

And the PA fell on the crowd

Then the cops came

And took us away

For an extended period of questioning about the PA

What went wrong?

Should’ve rehearsed more

And talked about the song sequence

Disappointing show


“Ladies and gentlemen!”

[Mr. John Linnell]

“Ladies and gentlemen…”
