LYRICS: “Ow, A Bad Singer’s Pony Rent” / Word & Music by Rich Lynch

Verse:
You would have thought by now
that you would have all you need
But, you’ve become the epitome
of outlandish greed
When I think of all the ways
that money could be spent
But, ow, it all just went to pay for
a bad singer’s pony rent

Chorus:
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
a bad singer’s pony rent
and I’m pretty sure that ain’t no compliment
you’ve torn down Wild Billy’s tattered tent
With your hand out seeking
your hand out seeking…
a bad singer’s pony rent
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
a bad singer’s pony rent

Verse:
What happened to all your cherished
integral core beliefs
It seems you’ve gone and flushed them all
right out in the street
Together with everything
they said you represent
Flowing now down in the valley
Like a river of excrement

Chorus:
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
a bad singer’s pony rent
and I’m pretty sure that ain’t no compliment
you’ve torn down Wild Billy’s tattered tent
With your hand out seeking
your hand out seeking…
a bad singer’s pony rent
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
a bad singer’s pony rent

Verse:
The sheep lined up on Broadway
Because the boss let out the decree
The change was made when they found out
What was lying underneath the marquee
Now he’s a fallen star they say
no longer heaven sent
The streets of New York City
are paved with gold
and tarred with disillusionment

Chorus:
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
a bad singer’s pony rent
and I’m pretty sure that ain’t no compliment
you’ve torn down Wild Billy’s tattered tent
With your hand out seeking
your hand out seeking…
a bad singer’s pony rent
Ow, Uh, Ow, Ow
a bad singer’s pony rent

As I wrote on another thread regarding this song and songwriter.

I agree prices are high but it is Broadway where they're always high for the hits.

Secondly what this singer doesn't realize cuz he's nowhere near as successful is Bruce isn't making much doing this.  Using round figures the place holds 860.

860 x 500 = 43,000.00 per show

The theater gets its rent and a percentage of the production.

Even though it looks like Bruce doesn't  have many expenses compared to a concert.  There are still quite a few.  If anyone scans the playbill you'll see what I mean.  Security, the union staff at the theater, Bruce's management team, Bruce's regular's of which 35 are listed.  All of them get paid and I don't think they're working for minimum wage.

Anyway, the point I'm trying to make is Bruce isn't doing this for the money.

IMHO, it's the challenge of trying something new.  Bruce is not afraid of a challenge especially when it's within his own artistic purview.

 ps: I wonder if Bruce will ever shake Lynch's hand again.
