lyrics

The lights are dimming so let’s get on with the show
You and your partner selected an excellent row
The thrill of live entertainment’s your reward
You got yourself out the door!

But who’s this woman on stage who’s starting to sing?
All you can see is that there’s no wedding ring
She turns towards you – looking at your man.
She must be trying to get in his pants!
HEY HEY HEY! She’s a…

Slightly threatening older female – look out look out
She’s coming to get you
Slightly threatening older female – look out look out
She’s gonna infect you
It’s not contagious. Everyone ages
But why did you have to see this
Slightly threatening older female tonight

She’s old and single – a mix you can't understand
So you presume that she wants to snaffle your man
The only weapon you have to crush her charms
Is tightly folding your arms

You check your partner. He’s enjoying himself.
Well, there’s your proof that he wants to shag someone else
You’d never think for a moment he’s to blame
…It’s her who should be ashamed…She’s the…

Slightly threatening older female – look out look out
She’s gonna ensnare you|
Slightly threatening older female – look out look out
It’s starting to scare you
She’s so terrifying. So much closer to dying
So why did you have to see this
Slightly threatening older female – tonight

She’s making joke after joke like some kind of hack
OK she’s funny but SHE WILL NOT – MAKE YOU CRACK
IT’S A TRAP – so you won’t engage
But for the medium of….

RAGE RAGE RAGE!!!
Shoot daggers out of your eyes!
RAGE RAGE RAGE
Your nails dig into your boyfriend’s thigh

And while he is bleeding
You judge her appeal. She has
Legs like a rooster.
What demon produced her??
Why is he perving
She's so unnerving
If that what he fancies
Then what does your man see in…
you…? Could this be all about you?
Maybe it’s all about you….?

Now at this juncture – there’s something I’d like to say.
The idea I would produce a full cabaret
With skilled musicians and huge financial drain
To cop a root is insane

And I’m not making this up – oh take it from me.
It’s not the maddest reaction that I see
Some women only see you as “the other female”
When you’re just “another... female”…

Just “another female”…
Like this “other female”
And this fine “other female”
All these wonderful females…females…..like me….
supporting females you…..that’s what good females do
…good females like you…young beautiful you….young….

And……you. Young, beautiful you…so young and beautiful but mostly...young...

Slightly threatening younger female
Slightly threatening younger female…
Slightly threatening younger female…
Slightly threatening younger female…
