lyrics

WE THE UNDERSIGNED

We the undersigned do hereby protest
the building of your unsightly tower
our city’s in peril and we simply won’t rest
until you stop trying to deflower our Paris

This odious column, this black smokestack,
this ghastly dream that you suggest
will be such a blight upon our city of light
we hope that you’ll do what’s best (grant this request)
for Paris

Is this a Joke?
Surely, you jest!
This is a most fruitless fight!
I don’t see how - I could to stop it right now
With the end so clearly in site.

You think that just because we’re engineers
that we have no conception of art?
If you will be patient, I will settle your fears.
And gentlemen you must know my heart
is in Paris

The neighbors are all suing and the art world’s gasp
it looks like whore just sitting on her ass

How did this Eiffel clown ever make the cut?
It’s a hideous funnel planted on its big fat butt.

You people are all scoundrels naysayers and fools
You’re reputations are tainted and marred
but to settle all bets I’ll incur any debts -
if tragedy should befall in your backyard
