"So Hard Done By" as written by Robert Baker, Gordon Downie, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois and Gordon Sinclair....
Interesting and sophisticated
Refusing to be celebrated
It's a monumental big screen kiss
It's so deep it's meaningless

One day you'll just up and quit
Yeah and that'll be it
Just then the stripper stopped in a coughing fit
She said sorry I can't go on with this

Yeah that's awful close
But that's not why
I'm so hard done by

It was true cinema a clef
You should see it before there's nothing left
In an epic too small to be tragic
You'll have to wait a minute
'Cause it's an Instamatic

Yeah that's awful close
But that's not why
I'm so hard done by
I'm so hard done by
I'm so hard done by
I'm so hard done by
I'm so hard done by

One day you'll just up and quit
And that'll be it
Just as the room became more dimly lit
As the emcee carried on with it
Yeah that's pretty close
Well that could be why

I'm so hard done by
I'm so hard done by
I'm so hard done by
I'm so hard done by
I'm so hard done by
I'm so hard done by
I'm so hard done by
I'm so hard done by

    General CommentThere are 2 lines missing in the final verse:

    Just then the room became all dimly lit
    As the emcee carried on with it
    Now that I've got you all strangely compelled
    I'm afraid Candy's not feeling well

    General CommentA tribute to the late John Candy
    An ode to the classic films
    A sentiment for the strippers

    close, but that's not it...
