If you wonder why we're here, we'd like to explain

Though singing this song is quite a strain

We've been sent out here to entertain

As a Fill-In.  Just a Fill-In.

 

We've become well known for shows in the past

But now we fear this'll be the last,

'Cos, except for us, it's such a lousy cast

We're a Fill-In. Just a Fill-In.

 

People come from miles around to see the Show

Though why they ever bother we will never know.

And boy will they be ratty when it's time to go!

'COS OUTSIDE THERE IS TWELVE FEET OF SNOW!

 

The songs aren't as good as they were last year

The show has been useless, now it's clear

We wish we'd never agreed to appear_

As a Fill-In. Just a Fill-In.

 

The jokes are all old and corny too

The scenery's tatty, there's nothing new

There's a cast of eighty and only one loo.

we're a Fill-In. Just a Fill-In.

 

People come from miles around to see the Show

And watch their little Jimmy from the second row

But we have got some news for them that's quite a blow.

WE LOST LITTLE JIMMY, AGES AGO!

 

The Props are dud, the band is worse

Half the kids never turn up to rehearse,

And we're getting sick of singing this verse

As a Fill-In. Just a Fill-In.

 

(Solo lines)

The Producers useless that's so true

The Stage Manager hasn't got a clue

And the lighting man...has..had ..a ..few!

 (ALL LIGHTS FADE)

 (SAID)    'Hello. What's happened to all the lights?

           'You've upset him now!

           'Well who cares, after all..we're only a fill-in!

 (SUNG AS THEY GO OFF)

We're a Fill-In, just a Fill-In. just a Fill-In....
