I finished my work on Halloween night
and I pulled on my costume looking quite a sight
it was current and detailed, a joke and a pun
and I went to the party to hang out and have some fun

I entered the house, to see a ghost and a Batman
a witch, a banana, and a football fan
I got everyone’s costume and was immediately sure
that the outfit I made was way too obscure

Nobody gets it - I’m a mystery
Nobody gets it - please don’t talk to me
Nobody gets it - I don’t want to admit
Nobody gets it. - that nobody gets it

It was a scary place, but it outdid itself
because people at the party kept trying to help
they were being polite about the way I was dressed
they didn’t understand but kept trying to guess

I told a nice person it was a play on words
and the guessing got frenzied and so much worse
it was such a mistake to tip my hand
like telling strangers you sing in a comedy band!

Nobody gets it
I am full of shame
Nobody gets it
I don’t even want to explain
Nobody gets it
I’ll find a dark corner to sit
Nobody gets it
because nobody gets it

it’s pretty funny if you’re in the know
but it’s not worth explaining if you haven’t seen the show
I should’ve gone the easy route and been a sexy nurse instead of
Steven Sondheim Universe

Oh Captain, My Captain Marvel


The God Particle Man

Sailor Moon Unit Zappa

or Mad Maxwell’s Silver Hammer
do you get it?

Nobody gets it
such a specific aesthetic
Nobody gets it
but I just look pathetic
Nobody gets it
I guess I’ve got to commit
Nobody gets it
because nobody gets it
