The Lyrics

Imagine that you're watching FOX and suddenly you see the American Idol logo. I don't watch Idol at all...
Don't wanna be on American Idol
Don't wanna join the "audition for survival"
Simon says there's only one "Victoria"
As they carry it out across America

Chorus:
Welcome to the TV sensation
That's been gripping the entire nation
From Boston Harbor to LA
Television dreams of tomorrow
Each telecast has another to follow
Up to five times a week

FOX Network has high hopes for this show,
But I'm glad they don't air it in Mexico
The judges eliminate all but one contestant
I don't care if they're Jewish or protestant

Repeat Chorus

Don't wanna be on American Idol
Don't wanna join the "audition for survival"
Simon says there's only one "Victoria"
As they carry it out across America

Repeat Chorus

Alan, I see you've been submitting misrhymed lyrics to AmIRight. However, identical rhymes (rhyming a word to itself) are by default not misrhymed so I'm afraid I can't accept them. Lazy songwriting and frowned upon? Yes. Misrhymed, no.
