Yo La Tengo – Let's Save Tony Orlando's House lyrics

We proudly welcome Tony Orlando
The state fair marquee reads
Inside 1000 people with yellow ribbons sing
And clap on 1 and 3

Watch him burn
He's dropping to his knees
Watch him burn
A medley: hits from Grease
Watch him burn
He never fails to please

Meanwhile in Taho outside Casa Tony
Wetting rags in gasoline
A jealous Frankie Valli says
"Dawn, I want you back"
Lights a match and counts to 3

Watch it burn
Reluctantly he leaves
Watch it burn
Acrid smoke making him wheeze
Watch it burn
Humming "Sherry," splits the scene

Watch it burn
Reluctantly he leaves
Watch it burn
Acrid smoke making him wheeze
Watch it burn
??? Splits the scene

We're sorry to inform you
Tony Orlando has been postponed
