Initially, I played music, but after a spell,
they called me disreputable, I said "oh well"
The judge said I was out of order, but he was wrong,
I wasn't in at the beginning, but two places along
Is it inappropriate for me to to start something to eat?
I was just playing games, let me skip the repeat.
Look at me in the light, can't believe I'm so pretty
I guess I better go back to the Capital City
None of the lines requires any special knowledge except line 5, but the puzzle can be solved without that one. Lines 6 and 7 are not wordplay, all the rest are in the style of cryptic clues. Every line has a clue, but some clues go across lines. There are a couple instances of filler for the rhyme or the meter. The answer is very short.
This might be easier for Gen X age-range people to figure out than other generations.
If you're really really stuck on line 5, you might ask on English SE, I famously did! But probably not until after you solve the rest, unless you really want it handed to you on a platter.
