The arrangement is by Paul & Storm. You can see the original song lyrics at Pardon Me For Asking.

30 Rock’s Scott Adsit quickly snapped this photo backstage at the May 2013 Thrilling Adventure Hour in Brooklyn— Paget Brewster and I are about to make our entrance as Frank & Sadie Doyle. I am helping Paget up the stairs because I am a gentleman and because she is a lady who wears life-threatening ladyshoes. Director Aaron Ginsburg counts to one Euro-style in the background. Also pictured: a giant thumb monster.
