“Don’t think you have special right to Break in lines before your turn. Smarty-alecks who pull that one make all decent people burn!”

“Don’t munch popcorn, rustle wrapping,
Or make chitchat with your beau.
Any noise is rude and selfish,
When folks want to hear the show.”

All the folks who came on time!”

When the star begins her song.
You may love to hum and warble,
But the crowd won’t stand it long!”
