The Lyrics

Well, it would've been, could've been worse than you would ever know.
Oh, you can avoid the Whammy, but we still have Buzzr.

Oh, it should've been, could've been worse if you want to spin around.
Well, you told me about nowhere well it sounds like playing to win $50,000.

Oh, it could've been, should've been worse than you would ever know.
Well, I once see Peter Tomarken but I love the big spaces you know.
(You can avoid the Whammy but we still have Buzzr)

Oh, it would've been, could've been worse than you would ever hit the Whammy, oh!
(You can avoid the Whammy melted but we still have Buzzr)
Oh, we talked about nothing which was more than I watched you to know-oh-oh-oh-oh.
Now here we go!

Oh! It would've been, could've been worse than it had even hit the Whammy
Well, the scoreboard was good, but I was already where I want.
(It was impossible, we ran it good, we ran it good)

Why should we ever even ever really even get to know?
(It was impossible, we ran it good, we ran it good)
Oh if you can watch Press Your Luck it'll shake us just like we were a co-oh-oh-oh-old.
Now here we go!

Well we avoid the Whammy and we play but we always blow it
We've yet to hit, but we still might as well tow it
Standing at $2000 or Lose a Whammy to play it great again,
Every morning you're surprising,
and in the evening one's consoling
Saying "You can get a spin right now"
Well, it would've been, could've been worse than you would ever know.

I was patiently spinning and recording the right episodes
After you had proved my point right,
It wasn't like I'd let it go, oh-oh-oh. Oh-oh-oh.
I just wanted to catch the last laugh of this show.

Yeah, it would've been, could've been worse than you would ever know.
Oh, you can avoid the Whammy, but we still have Buzzr.
(You can avoid the Whammy, but we ran it good, we ran it good)

Hard-wired to play, so much we'd have to win it
Even needs have needs, tiny players made of tinier players.
Don't wear eyelids so I don't miss the last laugh of this show.
(You can avoid the whammy, but we still have Buzzr)

Oh, we could've been, should've been worse than you would ever know.
(You can avoid the Whammy, but we still have Buzzr)
Well, you told me about nowhere well it sounds like someplace I'd like to go-oh-oh-oh-oh.
Now here we go!

Well we're avoiding the Whammy but we always blow it
We've yet to hit, but we still might as well tow it
Standing at $2000 or Lose a Whammy to play it great again,
Every morning you're surprising,
and in the evening one's consoling
Saying "You can get a spin right now"

Oh it would've been, could've been worse than you would ever know.
