​The Heckler

This song is by Loudon Wainwright III and appears on the album Final Exam (1978).

The Heckler heckles and he gibes and he jibes
Listen to him and you'll make mistakes
He applauds when your guitar string breaks
He's a heckler and he's out to get you

Some say he's drunk and some say he's stoned
He wants you deposed and dethroned
A crank caller would've telephoned
His aim is to upset you

He rarely bites but he can really bark
When those lights go out and that house gets dark
I doubt that he can even double park
But you know, boy, he sure can heckle

And you're really in for a surprise
When he comes backstage to apologize
And to remind you he's just to of the guys
Mr. Hyde and Dr. Jekyll

The Heckler heckles and he gibes and he japes
You start to listen to him and you're gonna make some mistakes
He really hopes that your leg breaks
He's a heckler and he's out to get you
