And fuck the fat lady, it's over when all the kids sing
Like in his song “Pigs Fly”, Tyler plays on a common saying. “It’s not over until the fat lady sings”, generally means that things aren’t over until they’re over
Tyler tells us to forget the fat lady, kids singing the forthcoming hook is the true sign of the apocalypse
The origin of the phrase “It ain’t over til the fat lady sings” comes from Grand Opera (think Wagner), where a few final arias consist of overweight, female, Grand Opera singers. This has built the perception that opera is often fat ladies clad in viking garb.
