Possibly you even have to ride a time machine back to 1982 to really get it ! Either way it still makes me laugh today just as it did in 1982 when I first heard it after my second grade friend bought a copy of it to school. Reply Notify me Helpful.
The legendary track itself ! More "comedy" than "novelty". You really have to have seen the original footage of said incident to understand what's going on here.

Chalk Dust - The Umpire Strikes Back is a 1982 novelty song by The Brat, which was a collective pseudonym for British comedians Kaplan Kaye and Roger Kitter. The song satirizes tennis champion John McEnroe who was notorious for his temper tantrums. It managed to reach number 19 in the British hit parade in July 1982. Its B-side was a track named "Moody Mole".
The title is a pun on the film The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and the tennis term umpire. Released on the Hansa label, the single entered the UK Singles Chart on 10 July 1982. It reached a peak of number 19, and remained in the chart for 8 weeks. The song was a Top 10 hit in the Netherlands, Belgium and South Africa too. Sources.
