The Lyrics

This is a song devoted to the whammy, the devious, evil, money-stealing creature from one of the best game shows of the 1980's, Press Your Luck. The show ran from 1983 to 1986 on CBS. Players took spins at a big gameboard to win cash and prizes. They would hit a plunger to stop the board while yelling, "STOP!" In the event that they hit a whammy, he would come out and mock the player. The contestant would lose all they had earned up to that point. (Now, there is another version! Whammy: The All New Press Your Luckairs on Game Show Network every night at 10:00 or 10:30 Eastern, I believe.)
This is an evil, red creature with a dollar sign on his chest.
And stealing bucks is what he likes to do best.
He intends to turn riches into agony and misery.
When he comes, don't you come cry to me.
He is the reason that you can't keep all your money.
Taking prizes and cash is this critter's purpose.

Whammy....stop at a whammy
I said, whammy.....stop at a whammy.
Big bucks, goodbye.

On his face, a grin is showing through his teeth.
Isn't that smile the widest you've ever seen?
If you press your luck, you'd better watch out,
'Cause the guy's on the board,
He's one that's really devious.
Take a spin and hit a money space, make him stay away,
Or hit him and have him mock you in so many ways.

Whammy....stop at a whammy
I said whammy....stop at a whammy.
I said whammy....stop at a whammy.
I said whammy....stop at a whammy.
Big bucks, goodbye.

On his face, a grin is showing through his teeth.
Isn't that smile the widest you've ever seen?
If you press your luck, you'd better watch out,
'Cause the guy's on the board,
He's one that's really devious.
Take a spin and hit a money space, make him stay away,
Or hit him and have him mock you in so many ways.

Whammy....stop at a whammy
I said whammy....stop at a whammy
I said whammy....stop at a whammy
I said whammy....stop at a whammy.

This is an evil red creature with a dollar sign on his chest.
