The Lyrics

This following song is about The Price is Right as they don't cancel it.
Once in a while maybe you will feel the urge
To not cancel this long-running game show
Because The Viewers are watching some other shows
Like The Today Show, Judge Judy and Dr. Phil

But deep in your heart you know the guilt would drive you mad
And the shame would leave a permanent scar
'Cause the ratings are falling and then you're robbing liquor stores
And sellin' crack and runnin' over school kids with your car

So don't cancel this game show
Maybe the ratings will go up
Go and watch The Price is Right like you know that you should
And don't cancel this game show

Oh, you don't wanna mess with the V-I-E-W
Because It's on since 1997
It doesn't matter if you're are The Dob or Jay Wolpert
They'll treat you like watching Daytime Television Shows.

So don't cancel this game show
Don't go downhill for the ratings
Go and watch The Price is Right like you know that you should
And don't cancel this game show

Please sign some petitions like people just like me
The Prizes and the Games are better than ever
Cause Drew is hosting this show
You have to watch this show
So all I ask is, "Everybody, please..."

So don't cancel This game show (Don't do it, no, no)
Even Les Moonves knows it's right (You can just ask him)
Go and watch this show like you know that you should (You really should)
And Don't Cancel This Game Show

Don't Cancel this game show (Oh please, don't you do it)
And might get NBC to air game shows again (in the Daytime)
Go and watch The Price is Right (Right now) and boost more ratings (more ratings)
And Don't Cancel This Game Show

Don't Cancel This Game Show (No, no, no, no, no, no)
ABC will cancel The View if Barbara Retires (And get that hour back)
Go and watch The Price is Right (Just Watch it) like you know that you should (You cheap bastard)
And Don't Cancel This Game Show

Jay, this is MUCH better than your usual Nascar-themed parodies. I also hope that CBS doesn't cancel the Price is Right, although it will never be the same without Bob Barker.

I was going to say what Andria said. This is an IMMENSE improvement over your boring-as-hell 'Recap' parodies. The rhyming and pacing could be better, but this was good. 333.

Now write a parody called "Where have all the Game Shows Gone?". I remember Password,, Win Lose or Draw, Name that Tune and others. Now all we have are talk shows - with the exception of Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune.

One more thing: 2 Eagle, there are more gameshows around besides "Wheel" and Jeopardy. There is "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader", "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire", "Deal or No Deal", "Family Feud", and possibly "Supermarket Sweep" and "Shop Till You Drop", although I have not seen those two in some time. I obviously have a great deal of time on my hands, having quit work due to a back injury and living off of workers' comp and my lawsuit against a certain large home-improvement chain that I will not name, so I watch a lot of TV and spend a lot of time on the internet. Keep up the good work, Jay!

Who do they think that Drew is the new Bob Barker?
