lyrics and video parody written by michael james nelson


Behind the lights

Getting frequencies right

He moves in space, sometimes with haste and maximum joy


High stakes,

His back does ache,

He wishes for a microphone with higher heights


No place for beginners or sensitive hearts

Then things go silent, not even a fart

The microphones break, his craft really starts


No need to panic

He’s a boom operator

Boom operator, boom operator

Boom operator


Extend that boom all the way to Key Largo, all is game

High overhead hold still for the moment, out of frame


*****(Instrument solo)******


Face to face, a steady pace

We shadow box and double cross

Stick with the pace


The cast is moving, continue to hold

Recording memories, converting sound into gold

His mic is like an angel sent from above


No need to panic

He’s a boom operator

Boom operator, boom operator

Boom operator


Extend that boom all the way to Key Largo, all is game

High overhead hold still for the moment, out of frame


Boom operator, boom operator

Boom operator, boom operator

Boom operator, boom operator

Boom operator, boom operator

Boom operator, boom operator
