"So you thought you might like to go to the show ..."
"... Is this not what you expected to see?"

"If you want to find out what's behind these blue eyes, you just have to claw your way through this disguise."

... soundeffects .... ACTION!!!!!!!!


"Mamma loves her baby, and daddy loves you too."

"Daddy's flown across the ocean leaving just a memory."

"Hear! Yes You! Stand still ready!"

"When we grew up and went to school, there were certain teachers who would hurt the children any way they could."

"We don't need no education. We don't need no thought control."

"Another Brick in the Wall part 2" guitar solo.

"Another Brick in the Wall part 2" guitar solo.

"Mother do you think they'll drop the bomb?"

"Mother should I build a wall?"


"Hush now baby don't you cry. Mama's gonna make all your nightmares come true. Mama's gonna put all of her fears into you."

"... of course mama'll help build the wall."
"Mother,  did it need to be so high?"

"Oooh I need a dirty woman. Oooh I need a dirty girl."

"Day after day, love turns grey, like the skin of a dying man."

"Would you like to call the cops? Do you think it's time I stopped? Why are you running away?"

"I don't need no arms around me, I don't need no drugs to calm me ... All in all it was all just bricks in the wall,
All in all YOU were just bricks in the wall."

"Goodbye cruel world, I'm leaving you today."


"Goodbye all you people, There's nothing you can say..."

" ... to change my mind ..."


Intermission! You are in a state of ... musical ectasy!

"Hey You" performed entirely behind the wall with a pink dummy sitting unconscious in a chair in front of the wall.
Is there anybody out there?

"I've got a little black book with my poems in ...
... Got thirteen channels of shit on the TV to choose from."

"Does anybody remember Vera Lynn?"

"Hello, Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me, Is there anyone home?

"There is no pain, you are receding ...
... Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying ...
... I have become comfortably numb.

"OK, Just a little pin prick, There'll be no more AAARG, but you may feel a little sick. Can You stand up? I do believe it's working, good. That'll keep you going through the show."

"There is no pain, you are receding ..."


The guitar solo to end ALL guitar solos on top of a 70 yard wall.

 The Show must go on.

 The rest of the show is now performed behind the wall ...
 ... fortunately this is now the side facing the audience.

"So ya, Thought ya, might like to go to the show ...
I'we got bad news for you sunshine ..."

"Pink isn't well he stayed back at the hotel, and they send us along as a surrogate band ..."

"... We're going to find out where you fans really stand."

"Are there any queers in the theatre tonight, Get'em up against the wall."

"There's one in the spotlight, He don't look right to me,
Get him up against the wall."

"If I had my way I'd have ALL OF THEM SHOT!"

"You better run like Hell ..."

"You better run all day and run all night ..."

"... and keep your dirty feelings deep inside."

"Sitting in a bunker here behind my wall

"Waiting to put on the blackshirts! Waiting to weed out the weak things. Waiting to smash in their windows, and kick in their doors."

"Would you like to see Britannia rule again my friend?
All you have to do is follow the worms."

"Would you like to send our coloured cousins home again my friend? All you have to is follow the worms."

STOP! I wanna go home. Take of this uniform and leave the show."

"Good morning Worm your honour ... The prisoner who now stands before you was caught red handed showing feelings of an almost human nature. Shame on him - this will not do." (Call the schoolmaster)

"I always said he'd come to no good ... If they'd let me have my way I would have flayed him into shape, but my hands were tied! The bleeding hearts and artist let him get away with murder, Let med hammer him today."

"Come to mother baby, let me hold you in my arms ..."

"I sentence you to be exposed before your peers."

"Tear down the wall ...."

"Tear down the wall!"


"All alone, or in twos, The ones who really love you ...

"... Walk up and down outside the wall. Some hand in hand, some gathered together in bands."

"The bleeding hearts and the artists make their stand, and they've given you their all."

"Some stagger and fall, after all it's not easy, Banging your head against some mad buggers wall."

No reason to shout encore! What a show!
