The Lyrics

Here's a tribute to the classic game hosted by Gene Rayburn.
Get ready to match the stars
He want mind to fill in the blanks
Panelists want to make the match
And after that I never was the same

And I watched her even more
Than Charles Neslon Reily seeing it
He was perfect, he was greatful
Yeah, he was perfect in every way

Except she was always using it to win or lose
When she obviously meant to match it up
And I know it would set up with that kind of thing
But frankly, I can't imagine why

And I told him, I said
"Somebody got anybody to say (BLANK)
What's the answer (Answer!)

Then the buzzer comes on
The correct answer is Spin
Had a blank hotter than on school
He had anybdoy like its winning

And I was crazy like about 6 panelists
He got me all seeing up like Brett Somers
He had a smile so incredibly good
You had to watch it through a piece of anybody's door

I thought after all these years of searching around
I'd found my soulmate finally
But one day I found OUT she got to watch Buzzr
Of watching Match Game 75

Oh, no! I said
"Hey! Who is the answer of the question?
I think we say to get a (BLANK)!
You're getting the answer! (Answer!)
Oh, so very wrong! (Wrong!)
Yeah, baby, you're wrong! (Wrong!)
So wrong!
But make a match!"

(Oh, yeah!)
(Oh, no!)
(Oh, yeah!)
(Oh, no!)
(Oh, yeah!)
(Oh, no!)

[Hand claps, Match Game 75 opening plays]

Somebody minded it it was blank
Two contestants could complete the game
He was best for doing fun of making blank questions
My question is to win or lose the game

And she was everything I've dreamed of
She moved right up to losing on my list
And did I mention he's a world famous contestant
Now move on to the 1998 one

Yeah, he shortened to 5 panelists
Look like it replaced the set
But the 1998 one is rather disappointing
Was just a little tiny bit of blanks

I said
"Hey! Are we doing questions here?
Yes I don't think we are!
You're wrong! (wrong!)
So very, very good! (Good!)
Aaw, baby, you're wrong! (Wrong!)
So good!
But make a match!"

Watched it by that viewers! (No cigar!)
Ah, yeah! Ah, right! (No cigar!)
Really, really, really wrong! (No cigar!)
But you can win!
Now move the mind with the (BLANK). The end.
