Spitting Image - We're Scared of Bob


"We're scared of Bob was a spitting Image comedy sketch parodying the Live Aid and USA For Africa song "We Are The World". It features puppets of the actuals musicians who recorded the actual "We Are The World song" e.g. Cyndi Lauper and Tina Turner.

The sketch was portrayed as a parody of the Band Aid / USA for Africa charity records with the various artists suggesting they're only making the record because they were too afraid to say no when Bob Geldof asked them - even the ones who shouldn't have been on the record because they weren't even pop singers, but Geldof had dialled a wrong number. 

LyricsEdit

(Tina Turner)

Once in a while,

comes a call for you and me

(Michael Jackson)

It's a call to which we must respond

(Bob Dylan)

We may be stars,

but we got feelings too

(Mick Jagger)

And there's one thing on which we're all agreed

(Bruce Springsteen)

We're scared of Bob

(Tina Turner)

We're scared of Geldof

(Bruce Springsteen)

We are the ones he screams at like fools

(All)

So let's start singing

(David Bowie)

The cause is just

That cannot be denied

(Tina Turner)

Ah but does he have to make us so petrified

(Wrong numbers)

Some of us here

You may not recognise

Because in truth we really don't belong

But when Bob called us up

We didn't have the guts

To tell him the number he dialled was wrong

(Bruce Springsteen)

We're scared of Bob

(All)

We're scared of Geldof

(Bruce Springsteen)

We're scared that if we try to turn him down we'd all get yelled at

(Cyndi Lauper)

Of course I'm nervous

And you'd be jumpy too

If Bob had had a word with you yeah, yeah

(All)

We're scared of Bob

That's why we're singing

(Madonna & Prince)

We get the jitters everytime we hear the phone start ringing

(All)

We're scared of Bob,

We're really frightened,

And when we hear that Irish voice our sphincters all get tightened
