A case against taking your work home.


Listen babe, we’ve got to move
We’ve only got so many days
The money says they want to see results
They can’t afford any more delays

So now focus on this scene
And set aside your sidelong glance
Skip the second act for now
’Cause in this town you get one chance

And there’s no second takes, baby
We’ve got to nail this one
If I get nervous, or laugh, or weep
The whole thing’s going to come undone

Send for the medic
(No, the other medic)
I can’t believe it's come to this
I can’t define what I need
They don’t take it seriously
But with you on board, we can’t miss

No second takes, honey
No more lighting tweaks
If we don’t roll some film right now
We could be here for weeks

The fire marshall is looking bored
I know they’ll shut us down for spite
I need to see you out of wardrobe
Before we lose our light

Honey, try to understand
I'm overworked and half shut down
I swear the camera will not jam
When your big finish comes around

No second takes, baby
No time to move that flag
We’re already two weeks behind
We gotta get this movie in the bag

And there’s no second takes
