Noel and Liam were in a play
and I was a bit-part player
just plumbing in some pipes
and not getting the laughs that I sought.
Liam and Noel were drawing the crowds;
but, for how long would it last?
All seemed well on the opening night;
things were going alright:
however, I was understudy for one or t’other –
for when there was a fall-out from either dour brother.
They didn’t like the idea
that I was on standby,
ready to roll
with it being the first night
