Now that you are seated in the theatre
Everyone should know just what to do!
Turn your smartphone off, or set to “vibrate”,
And with applications be all through!

Marco and Guiseppi:

Turn your phone off, or set to “vibrate”,
With applications be all through!


Don’t check Facebook,
Don’t check Twitter,
Don’t do anything with that phone!

Duchess and Casilda:

If we see those bright screens start flashing,
To your seats we’ll send ushers dashing!


This is the only way, the only way
We can all enjoy the show.
