The Lyrics

Here's a song about the deaths of 3 game shows.
If you'd just say the deaths
From your NBC-TV game shows
I could have shown these
Those colors aren't so bad
The way it watches
The way it plays
The way it plays on
The deaths of the 3 game shows

But it seems like High Rollers, Hollywood Squares or Chain Reactooh
Your viewers and Bye Byes to urges
You keep dyin'
Dyin'
Dyin'
Dyin'
Dyin'

You say you're sad
That you don't like they play
I could have shown you
There are the Secret Square
We go through the dice
And we go up the chain
But you just got good shows
With those electric deaths of the shows

And it seems like High Rollers, Hollywood Squares or Chain Reaction
Those viewers and Bye Byes to urges
You keep dyin'
Dyin'
Dyin'
Dyin'
Dyin'
This is the end. On June 23, 1980, David Letterman came on.
