Inspiration Post: The Muppets



It's time to play the music
It's time to light the lights
It's time to meet the Muppets on the Muppet Show tonight.

It's time to put on makeup
It's time to dress up right
It's time to raise the curtain on the Muppet Show tonight.

Also, I love skits and parodies, and when the Muppets do it, it's almost too good to be true. Basically, every second of the above video makes me have to pee.

There are a lot of valuable tips for performers from the Muppets. Below, a reminder to check the lyrics of your song for actual content, not just the title:
